Melissa Lummis considers herself a truth seeker, a peaceful warrior, a paranormal and fantasy writer, an avid reader, a thru-hiker, a Penn Stater, a wife, a mother, and a free thinker.  She believes the universe conspires to help an adventurer.  And if we live our lives as if it is a daring adventure (and it is!), then everything we need will find its way to us.

Her books have been described as new age suspense in a fantasy setting, but they are also straight up, steamy Paranormal Romance.  The Love and Light Series is currently available at most ebook retailers, as well as the Little Flame Series, a spin off focusing on the character Fiamette from the Love and Light world.

Recently, she’s ventured into contemporary and erotic romance. Her first short story in this genre, Exquisite Folly, appeared in the anthology Just a Night, and a full-length novel is in the works. It’s a spin off of Exquisite Folly and will feature all of its characters. Keep an eye out next spring or subscribe to her newsletter to find out exactly when it will arrive.

She lives in rural Virginia with her husband, two children, an Alaskan Malamute, and a myriad of forest creatures.  The nature of her mind dictates that she write to stay sane.  Otherwise, her fertile imagination takes off on tangents of its own accord, creating scenarios and worlds that confuse the space-time continuum. Namaste, dear friends.


 
Enlightened

Loti Dupree is about to learn that karma’s a nightmare.  After her husband’s sudden illness and mysterious death, ominous nightmares and psychic attacks have her running for her life—and straight into the arms of a dark and broody vampire.



In his world of closely guarded secrets, every answer she uncovers leads to more questions. Sexy distractions teeter between dangerous and too good to quit, while Loti struggles with losing and finding herself in the arms of this mysterious creature. When the attacks intensify and friends become casualties, she must face the truth whether she wants to or not.



Someone out there will stop at nothing to kill her and only the vampire named Wolf and a destiny she isn’t prepared to embrace stands between her and an early grave.

Fun Fact:



The ashram in Enlightened is inspired by a real ashram right here in my neck of the woods, the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Yes, there really is an ashram in Virginia. It’s called Yogaville and it’s an amazing place. The Lotus shrine I write about really exists, too, and when I first saw it, I knew it would be the perfect addition to my novel.



It was founded by Sri Swami Satchidananda and is a vibrant yoga community focusing on the precepts of Integral Yoga and the teachings of Satchidananda.

While my Marksville Ashram is nothing like the Yogaville ashram, considering it was founded by vampires, I did picture this incredibly beautiful, peaceful place while I was writing my novels.







 Hope you enjoyed meeting Melissa!
Lovingly,
