Excerpt and Giveaway: Love's Paradox (Paradoxical World #1) by Laura Kreitzer

Expected publication: May 5th, 2014 

Description:

"Ah, screw this. I don’t wait for him to make the first move; I kiss him."

Stalked by her abusive ex-fiancé, Rae Zachery retaliates by singing karaoke and spilling all their dirty secrets to the entire bar. When her ex attempts to silence her brazen performance, sexy, leather-clad Parker comes to her rescue and soundly punches her ex in the face. As valiant as that may be, Rae finds Parker’s violent assistance unsettling, yet she can’t help but be drawn to him and his tragic past.

Fighting her attraction for Parker is a battle Rae can’t win, and soon their night of sharing secrets morphs into an undeniable bond. But fate won’t so easily relinquish her grip on their happily-ever-after. Instead of blissfully skipping into obscurity, Rae and Parker are subjected to her ex-fiancé’s vicious proclivities. Who knew love could hurt so good?

EXCERPT

A hillbilly stripper, a snarky hair stylist, and a rock star walk into a bar. You might think this is the beginning of a joke, but it’s not. As a matter of fact, this is my life, and one of those individuals is me. Hint: my bag is in the shape of a guitar.

Okay, okay. So I’m not a rock star. As a matter of fact, I only know a few chords. But I can rock out to any ol’ country song, belting out words at the top of my lungs. Hank Williams: eat your heart out. Seriously, it’s not about musical talent; it’s about style. And thanks to my amazing hair stylist Cherry, I look the part as 
much as I play it. Long, dark hair with streaks of electric red, heels so tall and sharp they could be used as swords, faux-leather pants, and a sparkly top that’ll be sure to stop traffi c on a sunny day. Not because I look damn good wearing it, mind you, but for the fact I’d light up like a disco ball.
