Even the truest love cannot transcend death. Or can it?
For 17-year-old Olivia Girardi it all begins with dreams, haunting and erotic nightly forays that leave her feeling tired and disturbed days after having them. No matter how hard she tries, she cannot kick the man from her dreams out of her head; he shadows her day and night, and she blushes just thinking of how he swings her emotions up and down, and the way he touches her so insistently, as if he has the right.
When she meets Daniel Butler, a fellow American currently leasing her father’s art studio in Britain, he instantly evokes disturbing feelings in her and reminds her of her dream lover. What she will eventually learn is that Daniel harbors a secret so unbelievable that it will make Olivia question her sanity as well as Daniel’s.
Complements is the first of a two-book novel about profound love and other things.
Lulu Astor is a New York City girl, born and bred. She met her husband at a doggie play group in Tribeca in the ‘90s and together they embarked on adventures, moving first to Chicago, where their first son was born, then on to Santa Fe, New Mexico, followed by Los Angeles, Cali. Eventually they headed back to NYC where their second son made his debut shortly thereafter.
Beginning her writing career with nonfiction, she began writing short fiction (her first love) in grad school, moving on to longer works shortly thereafter. She wrote the Complements series in 2010, and it was published on KDP in 2013. Three and a Half Weeks was initially conceived as a short story but evolved into a full-length (very full) novel as time went on.
Immersing herself in fiction (whether reading or writing) every minute possible, she also teaches writing and literature as an adjunct professor in the New York-Connecticut area where she currently resides. Her books are available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and Goodreads. You can follow her on Facebook, Goodreads, and Twitter (reluctantly).
