NEW RELEASE: Awaited by Lynn Rush

The voice is a powerful thing. . .

Russell Leonard is a centuries-old Guardian who’s lost faith in his purpose. So when he’s charged with procuring the first female Guardian in over two centuries, he can only hope it’s the red-headed beauty who’s been haunting his dreams for months. And if it is, he intends to claim her as his. But when he finds his dream woman, Annabelle is mute and bears no Guardian’s Mark.  He soon realizes she’s been tainted by an ancient evil. Russell must somehow release the secrets trapped within this delicate soul to help her tap into the only weapon powerful enough to silence a millennia-old demon—her voice.

Awaited is now available in online stores: Amazon, B&N, ARe

About the Author…

Driven to write, Lynn Rush often sees her characters by closing her eyes watching their story unfold in her mind. Lynn Rush is a pen name that is a combination of two sources – Lynn, the first name of her mother-in-law, who passed away and Rush – since the author is a former inline speed skater and mountain biker. All of Rush’s books are dedicated to Lynn, her namesake.

Rush holds a degree in psychology from Southwest Minnesota State University and a master’s degree from the University of Iowa. Originally from Minneapolis, Rush currently enjoys living in the Arizona sunshine by road biking nearly 100 miles per week with her husband of 15 years and jogging with her two loveable Shetland Sheep dogs.

5 Star Review of SOUL REBORN

Photobucket

It has been awhile so I had to share. The fabulous Elena over at Samsawesomness has given Soul Reborn a   review.  It made my week.  I would be forever grateful, if you help me spread the word.  Thanks again!  Elena rocks!!

Teaser:  “Talk about a load of Suspense! This novel was quick paced and engaging. Who would’ve known one story could carry so much depth. The paranormal aspect of the story was over the top A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!….”

Soul Reborn ~ 5/5 STAR review, “a fresh take on the paranormal…”

Bakin Goddess Blog Site

I woke up to a wonderful review today at the Reading with the Bakin Goddess Blog Site

5 out of 5 STAR rating.  I was ecstatic.  Yes, the 5 rating is fabulous, but I think what reviewers say is even more important. 

Excerpt from Ms. Flood’s review:  “If you haven’t read her book yet. Get in your car (don’t drive? Get on your bike, hail a taxi, walk, run but just get there) and drive to your nearest book store — I guess getting online and getting the e-book would be great too!!! HA! Anyway, I have reviewed the book and I cannot say enough positive things about this book! It completely blew me away! I LOVED it!…”   READ MORE HERE.  

Ms. Flood is the owner of the Reading with the Bakin Goddess Blog Site.  She has a beautiful site that is a nice mix of two pleasures: cooking/food and good books.  We crossed paths during one of my blog giveaways and won a copy of Soul Reborn.  And soon following, I was one of her first author interviews. Needless to say she is a fabulous person and made it quite clear to me that if she holds her STARS very tightly.  I feel very honored to have earned 5 of them.  Thanks, Kimberly.  Follow her HERE.  Let’s see if we can get her to 200 followers.
