Happy Release Day L.B. Dunbar

REDEMPTION ISLAND

SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

I want to congratulate L. B. Dunbar on her Release of Redemption Island; every book/series she writes is fresh and thought provoking.  She has a series that will appeal to anyone & everyone.  By the end of chapter one I was a mess & had so many thoughts about how a decision good or bad can change your life in a split second.  Juliet and Tack find themselves on a secluded Island not knowing that they are sharing the same beach; while searching and seeking redemption for different reasons from the same crime.  Follow the links below and get your copy of Redemption Island.

The Island
Welcome to the island.
This is no fantasy.
You’ll face fears.
You’ll face travesty.
You’ll face yourself.
One deserted island.
Two heinous crimes.
Two convicted hearts.
When decent people do bad things,
there’s only one place for forgiveness:
Redemption Island.
The island knows what you’ve done.

Avid drinker of Coca-Cola, L.B. Dunbar loves the sweet things in life. Her affair with all things romantic began with her first book at the tender age of six: Goldilocks and the Three Bears. One can never forget her first! From there, the reading journey includes a deep love of fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and alpha males. She loves a deep belly laugh and a strong hug. Occasionally, she has the energy of a Jack Russell terrier. Accused, yes, that’s the correct word, of having an over active imagination; to her benefit, such an imagination works well. Author of over a dozen novels, she’s created small town worlds, rock star mayhem, and MMA chaos. Her other duties in life include: mother to four growing children and wife to the one and only.

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: The Trials of Guinevere DeGrance
Series: Legendary Rock Stars #4
Author: L.B. Dunbar
Genre: Rock Star Romance
Release Date: September 14, 2015

BLURB
Don’t judge me. I know you want to, but let’s get some facts straight in my defense.
1. I love Arturo King
2. Arturo left me behind.
3. I was lonely.
4. Lansing was an old friend.
5. I love Arturo King.
Did you burn the fictional damsel in distress that cuddled and kissed her best friend when her fantastical boyfriend disappeared for months? No, you didn’t. You sympathized with her loneliness before you read ahead to make sure the boyfriend was coming back to her. Loneliness is not a crime. It’s cruel to be alone, but not a crime, the last I knew. If it is a crime, I’ll light the match to ignite myself for what I’ve done. Goodness knows, I’m burning up with guilt as it is. In my defense, I want my story to be told before I’m judged too harshly. Arturo King might be a rock legend, but he and I are human. We make mistakes. We made mistakes. Do we need to suffer for all of eternity because of them? I hope not. The jury still seems to be out, though. The greater question is: Is it possible to rekindle our love, when the past could burn us all?

Prologue
Guinevere
If I ever wondered what the pits of hell felt like, I sensed my current position was similar to being in the fiery depths. The orange-yellow glow danced before me; blinding me to the man I knew was on the other side of the flames. His face was melting, fading in the fumes that surrounded and flowed from the heat. I sensed the wooden walls of the barn structure were crackling and eventually would crumble, but I continued to stand as if frozen. There would be no chance to freeze under the circumstances. If anything, I should be melting slowly to form a puddle on the floor. My skin felt as if it would peel off of me, one droplet of sweat at a time.
The blaze started in an attempt to gain Arturo’s attention. The boy wanted to impress his father: a rock god who stubbornly ignored his son, as he had done over a year ago in this same barn. The Barn. The place of inspiration for Arturo King and his band, The Nights. The place where they performed their magic through music. The place that marked where history was made.
I continued to stare through the flames that separated us. I could see that his lips were moving; calling or shouting out to me, but I couldn’t hear over the roar of the fire. His face was warped in my vision, drifting with the bright light that framed his head filled with dark waves and a jaw covered thicker than before. His brown eyes looked black as they stared back at me. I was trapped. The flames formed a wall between me and my beloved; a man I loved more than anyone. A man who I hurt more than I ever intended. A man who hurt me with his mysterious disappearance and lack of communication.
I didn’t move. Allowing the heat to consume me, I decided this might be my fate. Death by fire was how the adulteress was punished in ancient times. Of course, in romance novels a hero comes to the aid of the persecuted. My mind flashed to another man. He had been a hero to a little girl trapped within a burning building. He had been my hero, as well, when I was kidnapped in a drugged induced haze. He was someone I should not have been thinking of.
I continued to watch the movement of Arturo’s mouth. The roar of the flames was all that I heard. It made music to my ears, drowning out the accusations.
How could I do it? How could I be with another man?
The world seemed to stop as I struggled to give my answers. In contrast, it came alive in an orange glow that spread rapidly along the old wooden floor. My back was now against the warmth of the stones behind me. It was almost like I imagined a brick oven would feel. The ancient fieldstones were absorbing the heat and reflecting it back within the cramped space. Wood crackled above my head. The ripping sound only assured me that my end was eminent. The walls were catching and the barn was doomed to collapse.
Suddenly, I heard my name. The voice that screamed to me was clear, familiar, and not the voice that should have called for me.
“Guinie, turn around and reach up your hand,” he shouted down to me. It was like an angel spoke to me from the heavens. I couldn’t break my gaze on Arturo, but he was gesturing above me. His expression showed he clearly recognized who was over me, who was calling me. His eyes found mine through the flames and he nodded once. Then he looked away and I quickly spun reaching upward blindly. My eyes were dry, boiled orbs within their sockets. The smoke so thick, I confused it for fog. Stretching, my fingers connected with those reaching down for me. One hand was clasped, the opposite wrist encircled, and up I went into the freshness of the cool summer afternoon air. The scent of pine and lake water burned my smoke encrusted nose and I gasped for more oxygen. It was like I’d been drowning. A brief sensation I’d had a year ago in the water of that lake below.
My mind was clouded, but a passing image flashed of Arturo and me spinning in the blue water. He’d kissed me for the first time on that day then rolled us off the boat into the water in distraction. We were playful then. Not today. I heard his voice ringing in my head; his words enflamed with his bitterness.
How could I do it? Didn’t I love him?
I balanced on hands and knees in the dry earth near the burning barn. My throat was hoarse from gassy fumes and screams. I called out his name one more time, and then the inevitable happened. The wooden structure collapsed.

MY Review: 5 Stars  I was given an ARC of The Trials of Guinevere DeGrance, in exchange for an honest review. This is book five in the Legendary Rock Stars series. I just want it to be known I have been a fan of this series since Book 1 The Legend of Arturo King and I have been a Fan of L. B. Dunbar since I accidentally found her and the Sensation series. I am so glad that I came across such a talented author and story teller. Back to the book, OMG what a roller coaster ride. I am emotionally spent. I loved every minute of it. I don’t think I ever talked back to the characters in a book like I did with Guinevere DeGrance, i even cracked myself up with yelling at the book. Thank goodness i really don’t have neighbors close by. In the Trials of Guinevere DeGrance we not only find out if her and Arturo find their way back to one another, but it the band of brothers survived this long separation. Be ready for lots of twist and turns for them all.
I’m sad to see this series end for now. Congratulations L.B. for an amazing story, ending and series. If you have not yet read any of the books from the Legendary Rock Star Series get on board now, you will find two of the books on sale for a limited time and The Trials of Guinevere DeGrance comes out on 9/14/2015. This is a must read series you will not be disappointed.

AUTHOR BIO
L.B. Dunbar loves the original legend of King Arthur. Inspired by this classic tale, she pulled over to the side of the road to take notes when it hit her that if King Arthur lived today, he’d be a rock star. A lover of fairy tales, myths, legends, and anything with happily ever after, she loves to read and write contemporary romance. Her Legendary Rock Stars series is complete with the final tale: The Trials fo Guinevere DeGrance, but the story began with The Legend of Arturo King. She also wrote The Sensations Collection, which includes five stand alones based on the five senses in a small town setting near Lake Michigan. Raised on one side of that lake, she grew up in Michigan, but now lives on the other side, in Chicago. Mother to four, wife to the one and only, and teacher to hundreds of former students, she looks forward to sharing more stories in the future.

Raven watched as William efficiently disrobed, neatly folding every article of black clothing (with the exception of underwear, which he never wore), and placing it on the vanity.

She brushed imaginary lint from her dress as he stood in front of her, naked.

He was under six feet in height, his body lean and strong. Raven took a moment to appreciate the definition of his muscled chest and abdomen, and the strong cast to his thighs. Not even a statue carved by the most talented sculptor could create a being with so much perfection.

His face put her in mind of an angel with intense, gray eyes that now looked at her expectantly.

She hid her face. “You said you loved me.”

“I did. What’s more, I meant it.”

“Love is a peculiar thing. I’ve seen it. I’ve even cheered for it. But I never believed it was for me.”

“Why shouldn’t a beautiful, fierce young woman hope for love?”

“Because, as you put it, human beings are shallow.”

“Love is deep.” His rich voice echoed in the bathroom.

“Love is having the power to destroy another person.”

William stepped closer. “Are you afraid of being destroyed?”

“Destroyed, consumed, betrayed.” She fidgeted with the neckline of her gown.

William placed his hand over hers, stilling it. “Love creates; it doesn’t destroy.”

His lips found the place where her neck met her shoulder. He kissed her leisurely, tracing the path of her bared collarbone with his mouth.

His fingers brushed her zipper. “Let me.”

He undid her dress, dropping it to the marble tiles.

Her bra followed. She was as naked as he.

His eyes roved her body appraisingly. His pale fingers caressed her cheek, her mouth, and her neck. His strong hands cupped her breasts, her abdomen, and her hips.

His gray eyes met hers.

“The power you describe is the power you have here.” He touched her forehead before moving his hand to cover her heart. “And here. It’s the power you have over me. Power I haven’t yielded to another since I was human.”

He brought his lips to her ear. “Your fears are shared.”

With a slow kiss on her neck, he led her into the shower, standing behind her underneath a tropical rainfall showerhead.

Raven closed her eyes and lifted her face, like a flower following the sun. The warm water soaked her hair and streamed down the generous curves of her body.

“I’ve never showered with another person. What happens next?” William rested his hands on her shoulders.

She wiped the water from her face.

“Whatever you want. Just don’t let me fall.”

William’s gaze dropped to her right leg, which she was favoring.

“Is the pain terrible?”

“It’s worse after I’ve been lying down. Sometimes I topple over.”

William spread his arm around her waist, drawing her back to his chest. “Then I must be sure to catch you.”

She kissed him, reaching up to run her fingers through his wet hair as the water poured down their shoulders.

Her motions were fraught with an eagerness born of love and affection and the relief of remembering she hadn’t lost him.

He was hers.

Even now, naked, with a myriad of flaws few men overlooked, he embraced her. He embraced her imperfections.

He loved her.

His cool hands scorched her skin, splaying fingers wide over her abdomen and bringing her backside into contact with what rose between his hips.

She gave him her weight and he held firm, nipping and licking at her lips before enticing her to enter his mouth.

He entertained the intrusion for a moment or two then, with a growl, he spun her around, pressing their chests together.

Raven looked up into blazing gray eyes.

“Are you certain?”

She nodded.

“I need the words, Raven. I need to know you want this.”

“I want you.”

He took her mouth, his tongue alternately penetrating and retreating in a sensual rhythm.

She tilted her head, welcoming him, as the water continued to rain down.

Hands roamed over slick skin as their lower bodies came into alignment. She touched his neck, his shoulders, his biceps, holding them tightly in an effort to remain upright.

William was not a tame lover.

In his arms, she sensed his control, his desire, and the war that waged between the two. But he’d never harmed her and had always focused his attention on giving pleasure before taking it. Usually more than once.

“You’re a dream,” she sighed. “A dream of love I never thought I’d have.”

His eyes burned into hers.

Without warning, he lifted her, tugging her thighs around his hips.

He lowered his mouth to her breasts, tasting and teasing before sucking droplets of water from her eager flesh.

She wrapped her arms around his neck, feeling him eager between her legs.

He lifted her higher, hands beneath her backside, making sure he was correctly aligned.

“Breathe,” he commanded, his eyes boring in to hers.

Here was the vampyre, proud and powerful, teetering on the edge of control. He bared his teeth as if on instinct and his chest rumbled.

“Just don’t break me,” she whispered, pushing a lock of blond hair from his forehead.

William’s expression grew even more fierce.

“I won’t break you. Whatever harm I bring to you I vow to heal.”

He swallowed her reply with his kiss. Then with a single thrust, he entered her.

His kisses were as fierce as his movements as he pushed inside and withdrew, over and over. His grip on her backside tightened as he lifted and moved her in concert with his own motion.

Raven clung to him, her hand trailing to his lower back so she could urge him deeper.

Not that he needed the encouragement.

Her breasts brushed against his chest, the friction teasing and arousing.

She ignored the warm spray of the water, the scent of soap and William, and the nagging discomfort in her leg and ankle. Her focus was on feeling as he brought her swiftly to the brink of orgasm.

Before she could signal how close she was, she climaxed, her hand clutching his neck as she threw her head back.

William continued his pace until she’d finished, his mouth dropping to her breasts, drawing one of them into his mouth.

When she opened her eyes, she found him staring at her hungrily.

“I have only begun,” he rasped. “Breathe.”

I hope you have enjoyed this teaser as much I have 😉

Thank You SR for sharing!

P.S. I promise the Doughnuts are coming

The Trials of Guinevere DeGrance
The epic tale concludes…9.14.15
Don’t judge me. I know you want to, but let’s get some facts straight in my defense.
1. I love Arturo King
2. Arturo left me behind.
3. I was lonely.
4. Lansing was an old friend.
5. I love Arturo King.
Did you burn the fictional damsel in distress that cuddled and kissed her best friend when her fantastical boyfriend disappeared for months? No, you didn’t. You sympathized with her loneliness before you read ahead to make sure the boyfriend was coming back to her. Loneliness is not a crime. It’s cruel to be alone, but not a crime, the last I knew. If it is a crime, I’ll light the match to ignite myself for what I’ve done. Goodness knows, I’m burning up with guilt as it is. In my defense, I want my story to be told before I’m judged too harshly. Arturo King might be a rock legend, but he and I are human. We make mistakes. Wemade mistakes. Do we need to suffer for all of eternity because of them? I hope not. The jury still seems to be out, though. The greater question is: Is it possible to rekindle our love, when the past could burn us all?

Camelot

That little word holds so many different memories for several generations

Camelot

Images of President Kennedy, Disney’s Sword and the Stone, Monty Pythons Holy Grail  and one’s favorite musical or movie rendition of the life of King Arthur .

Lets face it when we hear the word Camelot or the Name of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, a smile comes to our face’s for they represent something or someone special and magical and we all want to be a part of it.

At this moment and time, I think of the Legendary Rock Stars Series written by one  of my new favorite Author’s

LB Dunbar.

Author of the Sensations Collection and the Legendary Rock Stars series. Contemporary New Adult Romance. http://www.lbdunbar.com

This Series is a modern day twist on the Story of King Arthur

The first book is called The Legend of Arturo King, he is a musician, who’s band is called the Nights.

images I could not put it down and I used a lot of kleenex. You immediately connect with all the characters and you know the Knights are more than just a rock band, they are brothers. Everyone has secrets and regrets but at the same time they would die for one another. The love story between Arturo and Guinevere is intense, beautiful, and tragic at the same time.

I won an advance copy of The Story of Lansing Lotte, and was so excited.  I had just finished The Legend of Arturo King and wanted more. This book is worth waiting for, but I am glad i did not have to wait until its release on April 28th. Arturo is mentioned and so is the chaos the Knights and it members are going through.   But don’t be mistaken, this is Lansing’s story and journey. He learns about forgiveness, love, and that missed opportunities are not always meant to be recaptured. He is made to realize that his time with Guinevere has passed even though Arturo has disappeared.  Lansing would always be number #2 and he deserved to be someones #1. He is taught to forgive himself and except that he has someone waiting to save and love him. With the help of his best friend Galehaut, he see’s that Lila is there to save him and it is ok to let someone love you! Lansing has made some huge mistakes, and he takes full responsibility for them, but struggles through the darkness. In the end, he finds his way to the light, which not only helps him but also the Knights as they wait for Arturo’s return. I can’t wait to meet all the members of the Knights and learn their individual story’s. But most of all I’ll be waiting to find out how Arturo and Guinevere story ends. I want to take time and thank L.B. Dunbar for sharing this story and her talent.

I am so lucky that I won an Arc copy of The Quest of Perkins Vale in return for an honest review. This is book three in the legendary Rocks stars by L.B. Dunbar, and it does not disappoint. It’s starts off at that fateful night when Perkins with the help of Arturo saves Hollister, the girl he’s been looking for for 12 yrs. We live through Arturo’s accident, but it’s told through other’s perspective.  We see how each of them felt and how they were there for each other. I don’t want to spoil the story for anyone, but you are going fall head over heals for Perkins Vale. He had contact with Arturo twice, and he tells Perkins to hold to Hollister no matter what.  We find out so much about the past through Perkins flash back of their youth and how the became a band of brothers.  I can’t wait for the band of brothers to come back together.   I’m really looking forward to Tristan’s story.   L.B. Dunbar, thanks again for writing & sharing another great story.

The Truth of Tristan Lyons Book 4 goes live on July 27, 2015  your can find and place your pre-order  For Tristan Lyons at Amazon.com

If it wasn’t for the fact that I needed sleep I would of finished Tristan’s story in one day! I was given an Arc to read before the it’s release July 27 2015 for an honest review. I love this series and each story gets better & better. Each book not only tells the individual band members story.  Not who the media plays them out to be, but who they really are and how they became apart of the band. Yes I do know this is only a story..with that said, with everyone’s story you learn more about the Knights & how the guys are more than band mates but brothers. I don’t want to give anything away or spoil the story, but you are in for some big surprises & still left with many questions. Once again, great read & story! You will fall in love with Tristan and Ireland’s story 🙂 Add Tristan or any of the Knights to your TBR List on Goodreads www.goodreads.com

Below is the Sensation Collection by LB Dunbar, I accidentally stumbled upon a release party that was introducing this new author, what a find since that day I have read every book that she has written and published to date

  41FOPZqKJJL._AA324_PIkin4,BottomRight,-52,22_AA300_SH20_OU35_

This is a beautiful story of love, Life, healing and destiny. Emily returns to her childhood summer home, to find her grandmother who raised her very frail and the house in much need of repairs. Emily could of never imagined the path her life was going to take when making that weekend trip. I met LB Dunbar the other night at a online Book Event & I won her flash contest & received The updated edition of Sound Advice, so very happy and I recommend this book as a must read.

Taste Test is book two of the Sensations Collection, but I have to admit I read after books, 1, 4, and 3. That is what is so great about this collection each book stands on it own, but after reading each story you see the close connection between the Scott and Carter family. You also fall in love with the small town of Elk Rapids. Taste Test is a modern on Beauty and the beast, but it has its own special story to tell. Ethan Scott comes back home after loosing his scholarship to finish his last year of college. He feels lost and is struggling with fact that he is stuck on the cherry farm, the one place he was trying to get away from. He wants to be a chef and his father wants him to take over the family farm, since his brother Gavin never came back after college. Ethan takes a mystery job and cannot tell anyone who and where he works. We find out his employer is Jacob Vincent famous author who needed a cook and someone for protection, but we find out the protection is not for him. All the secrecy puts an even bigger strain on Ethan’s relationship with his father Jack Scott. We meet Ella Vincentia, Jacob’s niece. She hides because of scares on her face and is skittish around strangers, she has been through a traumatic event in her life. Ella is not very happy with Ethan or Jacob at first, but things soon change between her and Ethan. Ella has dreams of going and studying in NY to become a fashion designer, since her scars took her dream of being a model away. In the story we are introduced to Pam Cater and her connection with Jacob and Ella, along with Sara Scott, Ethan’s mother who is battling cancer for the second time. You must read the story to see if Ethan takes Jack and Sara’s advice and follow his heart. I am so thankful that I was lucky enough to win Sound Advice and meet L. B. Dunbar on Facebook back in March. I am excited to read the final book of this collection Sight Words, but at the same time sad to say goodbye to the Scott and Carter Families and Elk Rapids. Thank you L. B. Dunbar for sharing your talent and stories.

imagesI love this town and how these families connect with each other. Pam and Jacob are two souls tortured by their past. Pam feels she will never be the person that is asked to get married and Jacob feels he deserves only suffering. Through their struggles during their professional/friendship they push each other to change their own destinies. But through doubts, miscommunications, and fears they almost lose each other. With the help of family and friends, they not only open Pam and Jacobs eyes, they give them the push they need to come together. I am so grateful that I found this series and L.D. Dunbar

Loved this book.  If this story and characters don’t effect you and touch your heart, I don’t know what will. I first became familiar with LB Dunbar when I won  a copy of Sound Advice, I immediately had a connection with the characters & the story.  During a cover reveal party ,I won a copy of Touch Screen. Gavin goes off to college in California to follow his dream of becoming a screen writer, but that meant leaving the family farm and disappointing the family.  When he returns home for a film festival, where his film is debuted, he reconnects with his first love.  Read this book, you won’t be sorry.  I need to go back and read TasteTest and Fragrance Free & look forward to not only to Sight Words.  Thank you again for sharing your Talent!

Once again we are reunited with the Carter and Scott family, Sight Words is Tricia’s story. She has recently broken up with her long time boyfriend Trent Walker. We will find out later in the story that Trent was not the sweet home town boy everyone thought he was and Tricia was better off without him. Tricia’s life is turned upside down when a stranger arrives in town with his two young sisters. Leon Ramirez is hot and dangerous. He and his family is befriended by the Carter Family, Jess helps him out by giving a job. There is a strong attraction between Tricia and Leon, but both their past and secrets are holding them back. I don’t want to give to much away, but Leon has to go back to Chicago and seek permission to be released from the gang he was apart of during his youth. Before he leaves Elk Rapids, Leon breaks Tricia’s heart in order to protect her from being destroyed by his past. You’ll have to read the Story to find out if he wins Tricia’s heart back when he returns to Elk Rapids, but he must get past her brothers Jess and Tom first. I have really enjoyed the Sensations Collection and sad to say good bye to the Carter and Scott Family’s and the Town of Elk Rapids. Thank you so much for sharing their stories with us, L. B. you are a very talented story teller.
