Enlightened: A Tale of Love and Light

Loti Dupree fears that when her husband died, she lost her soul. Harboring a painful secret, she flees her life in a small Appalachian town for the ashram, the spiritual retreat where she trained to be a yogini. But she is running from more than grief. An ominous nightmare the night before she leaves sets her on a dangerous path of self-discovery that challenges everything she believes – and threatens her life.
While dodging psychic attacks from an unknown assailant, she struggles with her growing attraction to a broody, handsome and completely frustrating vampire. Loti races to understand who and what she is before her anonymous enemy catches up with her.

Loti thought she couldn’t survive her husband’s death, but among healers, witches, and vampires, she discovers not only a future, but a family.

About the Author

Melissa Lummis considers herself a truth seeker, a peaceful warrior, a paranormal and fantasy writer, an avid reader, a thru-hiker GAàME ’98, 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.

The author 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.

My review:

I am a professional reader. I have been for a long time in one form or another. Books normally don’t shock me or surprise me. I read a lot of them and more times than not, they all seem to blend together. Enlightened taught me not to judge a book by it’s cover. I honestly thought I was going to read a hippy, dippy book about yoga and romance. Um boy was I wrong. What starts out as a retreat from herself, her life and her husband’s death, Loti sets out to train to be a yogini, to achieve a semblance of peace and balance. She stumbles into a destiny that seems to have been hers all along, but was being kept from her. Loti finds she has an enemy she never knew existed (and with the help of her friend Rachel, her family and new unexpected family Loti picks up on the way) she has to battle this unknown enemy, fight a strange bond to a vampire of all things, and save the world! (Well not really but pretty close) This is a great book with a brilliantly crafted and well thought out characters plus a fantastic supernatural adventure. I honestly could not put it down, it was a great lazy Sunday read.

For a debut novel I was extremely impressed with Enlightened and I am really looking forward to reading more from Melissa and hopefully get to read more of Loti’s adventures!
