T Minus One Week!

 

Until the official release of ENEMY LOVER!   I’m very excited!  The reviews have been phenomenal, support for my crazy blog tour has been immense, a writer really can’t ask for more than that.

Trust me, it’s taken a village, hell a couple of villages, that if you melded them together would become a city, to get ENEMY LOVER on book stands.  It’s taken those villages to get the word out, generating a positive buzz and then keeping the buzz alive. 

I wish I could throw a fat party in New York, fly you all out, and party like there is no tomorrow! Since I can’t, I want to say, thank you to everyone who is part of ENEMY LOVER’s momentum.  I hope you continue on this crazy ride with me.

We’re a week away!

I’d also like to share another wonderful review of ENEMY LOVER.  This one from Fresh Fiction. After a story synopsis this is the reveiwer’s bottom line: 

“ENEMY LOVER is a pleasant and excitingly fresh perspective on Black Ops meets paranormal. A complete page turner — don’t miss it!”

ENEMY LOVER Has Been Joyfully Recommended!!

“Enemy Lover by Karin Harlow is easily the most original and compelling vampire story since Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire. But it’s much more than simply a vampire story. It’s like paranormal romance meets romantic suspense meets kick ass action-adventure.

From the first page, I was completely drawn into the story. One thing I like about it is the straightforward simplicity – even though the characters are complex, they have definite back story, and there’s a whole other world involved – the story itself is never overwhelmed by any of that. It flows.

All the characters were fully realized, including the secondary characters. Even if they didn’t have many scenes I still felt as though I knew them. And Jax? By the end of chapter four, she had become my new most favorite heroine. The scene at the end of chapter four cemented that and also happens to be, in my opinion, hands-down one of the coolest scenes I’ve ever read.

Marcus Cross is sexy in a way that puts the average, sexy alpha male to shame. He is a true predator, and feels no need to apologize for what he is. He completely owns it. But it’s his ability to be gentle when Jax needs it that stole my heart. Here is a man that, once he comes to terms with his feelings, is willing to die for the woman he loves – and knows he is most likely going to have to. Marcus is a hero in the truest sense of the word.

The dialog throughout Enemy Lover always felt natural. Everything about the story just seems realistic. Karin Harlow made me believe that other-worldly beings could truly walk among us. This book doesn’t have the feel of a “fantasy” at all; it feels like gritty, in-your-face reality.

The sexual tension was incredible. The sex scenes were fierce and primal, and yet I would label them love scenes, really – the feelings between Marcus and Jax are beautiful. Each scene built on the last so that their feelings were a natural progression.

Karin Harlow is the kind of writer that makes it seem easy; she’s just that talented, in my opinion. I didn’t want to see the end of Enemy Lover, and I’m anxiously waiting for the next book in the L.O.S.T. series. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this one.”

Wow!
