Hey all!  It’s such a pleasure to introduce you to my friend, Nana Prah!  Her debut novel, Love Through Time, was released by Black Opal Books on August 3rd.  Take it away, Nana!
Leslie is such a generous woman for letting me take over her the basement today.
The song Strength of a Woman by Shaggy came to mind when I thought about coming to Leslie’s blog, not only because of the music challenge we undertook with Empi, but because the words describe how strong women are.  This applies to all women.
One thing I deplore in a romance novel is a weak heroine. To me women are supposed to be strong, that’s the way we were awesomely made. I have come to realize that in life there are weak women, but their frailty is only on the surface.  When a woman is put in a situation where she must utilize her strength, she ceases to be weak in order to get the job done, especially if it pertains to her children.
So to all the women who perceive themselves as weak, pull your shoulders back and know that you are a strong woman waiting for the opportunity to show just how strong you are.
In my debut paranormal romance novel, Jasmine is a powerful woman who uses her skills to protect those who need her. No, she is not a superhero, just a woman who knows how wonderfully she has been created.  With that said, let me introduce you to Love Through Time.
Blurb:
Defending her family – no problem. Recalling past lives – maybe just a small problem. Taking a chance on love again – well…
Jasmine Gibson has her world turned upside down when she meets gorgeous Sean Taylor. He’s the first man she’s been attracted to since her fiancé dumped her two years ago. But when the disturbing daydreams start, Jasmine begins to fear that her actions in a past life may have finally caught up with her.
Sean finds it impossible to stay away from Jasmine even though he can’t shake the inexplicable feeling of betrayal, simmering deep inside him every time he sees her.
To complicate things, someone is out to hurt Jasmine and every time she and Sean are together, the police have to be called. Even if Jasmine can make Sean trust her, the two of them may not stay alive long enough to enjoy their love this time around.
Excerpt:
She was coming to terms about their past lives, but he was having trouble just dealing with her in this one.
“I must have been a great man in previous life,” Sean said jokingly, but Jasmine’s expression turned serious as she held onto the doorpost. “Are you all right? Are you getting lightheaded?”
“No, I’m fine.”
But he could tell something was bothering her. “Now you’re holding something back from me.”
“Do you believe in past lives?”
 “I haven’t thought about it. I’ve seen so much in my travels around the world that I wouldn’t be surprised if it existed. Do you?”
“I think it might exist, and the thought about coming back and making your soul better is very appealing. At the same time it could be painful, especially if you hurt someone else in a past life and met them again in another.”
Sean felt a chill go up his spine. He knew there was something more to this conversation, but he couldn’t pin point it. He wanted to stay and talk with her about it, but he had to get back to studying.
He leaned down and kissed her cheek. It was nothing but a friendly kiss, but he felt the shock of it straight down to the soles of his feet. Jasmine looked just as affected as he was.
