Friday Free For All - Meet Author Karen M. Nutt !

Spring is here! And what does that mean? Love is in the air.
My guest today, KAREN MICHELLE NUT, is here to talk about just that.
Plus, she's brought a gorgeous hunky cover and a blurb for her novel, LUCCA: WARRIORS FOR THE LIGHT.

You can learn more about Karen and her writing at
Then come on back to learn a little more about love, AND get the recipe for Passion Lotion!

Love is in the Air

Love brings joy into our lives. It gives us a sense of physical and emotional well-being. Our stress can be erased with words, a kiss or a gentle caress from the one we love. Love also involves our other senses as well, scent being one of them. Scents can conjure up memories and bring us back to a time where we were the happiest. Scents can change our moods from work to play. Smell is connected to our limbic system, making an instant emotional response from our body.
In my Fallen Angels Series, scent plays an important role with the Nephilim finding their soul mates. The signature scents for Lucca’s mate are mint and rosemary. Rosemary is the herb known for remembrance and mint is for healing, both of which Lucca needs to move forward in his life.
What do certain scents mean to you? I’d love to hear from you.

To bring a little magic to your love life here’s an aromatherapy recipe to try.

Passion Lotion: To bring in moods of passionate love, combine 2 drops of Bergamot with 1 drop of Black Pepper, 1 drop of Patchouli, 2 drops of Sandalwood and 1 tablespoon of Sweet Almond oil.

I’ll leave you with a Blurb for Lucca: Warriors for the Light
(Fallen Angels Series, Book 2) 

Lucca Marlowe is half human, half angel, one of the Nephilim who abhors humans. Banished for crimes against one of his fellow brethren, the elders bind his glamour and wings, casting him to the human’s realm. He’ll either learn to respect his human side of existence or live out eternity trying.

Lucca does not live a mundane life. Angels and demons demand he do their bidding. His estrange father resurfaces after centuries of being absent and he’s brought a friend from Hell.

To make his life more complicated, he fears he found his soul mate in a human female. Only Juliet Romeo has a secret that will bring the wrath of Heaven down upon their heads.
It’s a race against time to find out who will end up with his soul.

Books available in Print and e-book formats at Amazon,
Barnes and Noble and other online book stores.

  1. Thanks so much for having me here today! I'm glad Blogger decided to behave. lol

  2. I've read Eli: Warriors of the Light and I loved it. I can recommend this series.

  3. Very kewl post, Karen. I love herbs so you hooked me. Super cover and book bites too.

  4. So glad you are my guest! And really glad Blogger decided to cooperate. HA
    Love your potion too.
    Thanks !

  5. I love Patchouli! And the smell of Peonies. Don't think those two scents would blend well, but individually, they're two of my favs!

    Your book sounds great!

  6. Nightingale.

    Thanks so much! I'm thrilled to know you enjoyed Eli's tale.

  7. Beth,

    I always enjoy your posts about herbs. :)

    Lucca does catch your attention, doesn't he? lol I'm glad you enjoyed the post.

    Take Care!

  8. Jennifer,

    I love the potions, too. They're a lot of fun. :)

  9. Lilly,

    I know isn't strange how scents you wouldn't think would go together actually compliment each other.

    Thanks for stopping in!

  10. Hi Karen,

    I love this series. I just finished Lucca. I wasn't sure how I was going to like him, but I tell you, he's now my favorite.

    When's the next one coming out? Who is this one going to be about? Gideon? What about Blaize? He caught my interest.

  11. Cathy,

    Thanks so much. I'm glad you're enjoying the series.

    Gideon's story is next. As for Blaize, he may have a story of his own, too. :)

  12. Hi Karen!

    Your cover is fantastic and this is a book I want to read - soon!!!

  13. Karen-

    I can't wait to read this one!

    What do certain scents mean to me? Well, when my youngest was a newborn, he was very, very ill. One of the things we needed to do was remove all scent from the house which meant no cologne or perfume, unscented deodorant, laundry detergent, etc. As a result, I'm very aware of and sensitive to scent. And let me tell you, my husband's scent is fantastic!

    Some of you are thinking I'm crazy right? I know a lot of people think the only scent people have is from perfume or soaps, but that's not true. Hubs smells great. :^)

  14. Hi, sounds like a good book with an interesting premise. Smells have such power over our emotions, even when we aren't of a paranormal race! While lots of people like lavender, it is slightly repellent to me. I wonder what that means?

  15. Hi Mel!!

    Thanks so much for popping in for a visit! Time-- I never seem to have enough of it either. If you find the chance, I hope you enjoy Lucca as much as I enjoyed writing his tale. :)

  16. Sarah,

    Oh so stressful with a young one being so ill. I'm assuming he's well now and scents aren't a problem?

    I don't think you're crazy at all. I know exactly what you mean with a person having a scent. Not everyone is sensitive to that. My eldest daughter would always tell me how her dates went and she would start off with how the guy smelled. lol I totally got it, but my husband would look at us like we were crazy. lol

    My daughter and I both have allergies and some scents can drive us crazy. Perhaps this has heightened our ability to pick up signature scents of people as well. Who knows. :)

    Thanks so much for sharing!!

  17. Paperback Diva,

    There are definitely scents that turn me off too. It's almost like I want to choke and ward it away. lol
    So I know what you mean.

    So you don't like lavender... hmmm... Since a scent can conjure up a good memory, maybe lavender conjures up a memory you'd sooner forget. Just a thought. Or it could be lavender just plain stinks to you. lol

    Thanks so much for stopping by!!
