Synopsis

Synopsis

I get it. I’ve heard the jokes. My name sounds like some medieval character who was a hero. Hell, my best friend’s named Arturo King. Ring any medieval bells? But this is my story and I’m no hero. I also get the jokes. Lancelot is a play on the words lance and lot, and a lance refers to a sword, which is a euphemism for dick. What does a man do with his dick? He fucks. A lot. So if my name is Lansing Lotte, I must be “fucking lot.” Get it? Fucking a lot? Which I’m not saying I don’t, that’s not the point. Another reference to something sexual. Get my point? Huh, I made a punny. But again this is my story, and I haven’t done anything funny. In fact, I’ve killed three women, and only one of them I loved. Yeah, that’s right? Not laughing now. It’s not funny. And I’m definitely no fucking hero.

Excerpt

“Because I know you love her. It must hurt.”

“I…I don’t know that I’m capable of love, Lila. All I seem to do is destroy women, and myself.” She reached a shaky hand for me and pushed my longish bangs back from my forehead. It was surprisingly comforting.

“I don’t believe that,” she said. “I think you just have difficulty choosing someone safe.”

Her fingers continued through my hair and my muscles relaxed. It was soothing. It was motherly, which should have creeped me out, but didn’t. I don’t know what prompted me, but I laid my head down on her stomach. Her breathing was ragged, and I could hear her heart beat rapidly through the oxford shirt. She was holding her body still, but she continued to gently run her fingers through my hair. She was hesitant at first, almost as if she was petting me, but her fingers slipped into my longer locks and she massaged back and forth over my scalp.

I was relaxing into her stomach and my nose nuzzled against her. She was firm under there, and she had that sexy hip thing going on. She sucked in a breath when my nose drew a line back and forth across her belly. My mouth watered to get a taste of those hipbones just below her navel. She was dragging her fingers through my hair more intently, and I slid my face down her belly. She had a sweet fragrance about her, something flowery and something I wasn’t certain of at first. Instantly, I recognized that Lila smelled like sex.

My hand came up to remove the blanket from her legs and I heard her sigh. Her hand wrapped into my hair, tugging gently, and I took it as a sign to continue moving down her body. Her legs opened slightly and my nose dragged closer to my destination.

“You smell sexy, Lila.”

She sighed again and a choked sound followed. My eyes glanced up to discover hers were closed. Her head leaned back and her lips parted. I dragged my nose across her damp panties, inhaling her sweetness.

“You want me?” I breathed against her, knowing she was wet and ready for me under the cotton. I couldn’t believe it. Lila gave no hint that she was attracted me. She was well aware that I was continually turned on around her, but she gave me no indication that she could be attracted to me. Unless…

“We’re friends, right, Lila?” I said, a bit of curiosity in my voice.

She sighed again and I blew a breath onto her. Her arousal was heady, and I was intoxicated by her.

“We could be friends. Together. It would be a good distraction.” I kissed her over the cotton and I felt her sit upright. She looked drugged; her eyes glassy and confused.

“I can’t,” she said on a choke.

“What?” I softly groaned.

“I…I can’t do this with you.”

“Lila, I didn’t mean…”

She was pushing back into the corner of the couch, forcing me to sit upright. She grabbed the blanket off the floor to cover her, but then decided to stand.

“Lila, I…”

“I can’t compete with ghosts, Lansing.”

“Lila, it’s not like…”

“I know all about ghosts…and I can’t fight them whether dead…or alive,” Lila added, as she held the blanket before her legs like a shield and quickly turned to leave me stunned on the couch.

My Review

“It was flint to a rock.  We struck and she sparked.”

This was the first book I have read by Author L.B. Dunbar. What did I think about it?  Immediately after reading, I contacted her to let her know it would not be my last.  Rockers are hot in the book world. But, you have to know how to write a hot rocker book or it will fall flat on the ground.  L. B. Dunbar is definitely in the know!  Mystery, intrigue, lust, love, and an amazing story line infiltrated the pages of The Story of Lansing Lotte, and made me read from beginning to end without putting it down.  

“Sometimes it isn’t a missed opportunity, Lansing. Sometimes it’s Fate telling us it was never meant to be.”

We enter into Lansing’s world with fabulous character introductions and a mystery.  Lansing Lotte, the man who has it all and simultaneously has nothing. Circumstances have caused him to have interactions with women that he had not planned.  He can’t seem to get it right with any of them, and because of this his life is full of feminine complications.  We are introduced to all of the women in his life, but two stick out that make our hearts happy to sing and move to his rhythm.  One is shy and unsure of herself. Her story is one that is misunderstood and causes a positive distraction for Lansing. The other dashing woman in his life that leaves us wanting more is under the age of 18; she is innocent and loving. The Story of Lansing Lotte takes us through many twists and turns with this main story line and other avenues that continually intersect and give us something that cannot be refused or lived without.

“I’d slide so far inside you, you wouldn’t know where I stopped and you started.”

Give me great characters, a fast-paced story line, humor, good love, and a happy ending and I am an overjoyed reader…do you see the smile on my face?  It’s huge!  The menagerie of characters and their circumstances kept me on my toes and guaranteed my interest throughout the story. The alternating points of view offered a look at the story from many different characters’ perspectives, which, I feel gave more insight into details that may have been overlooked had only one point of view been present.  Every emotion present flowed off of the pages and into my own emotional bank, causing an overflow of my feelers that made me laugh, cry, gasp, moan, and cheer loudly.  The ending left me satisfied, yet wanting more.  I am so thrilled to have been introduced to this series and cannot wait to continue the tale in the Quest for Perkins Vale. 

Lila covered my overall feels for Lansing’s story when she said,

“He overwhelmed my senses. He overwhelmed my body.  And he overwhelmed my heart.”

About L. B. Dunbar

Avid drinker of Coca-Cola, L.B. Dunbar loves the sweet things in life. Her affair with all things romantic began with her first book at the tender age of six: Goldilocks and the Three Bears. One can never forget her first! From there, the reading journey includes a deep love of fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and alpha males. She loves a deep belly laugh and a strong hug. Occasionally, she has the energy of a Jack Russell terrier. Accused, yes, that’s the correct word, of having an over active imagination; to her benefit, such an imagination works well. Author of over a dozen novels, she’s created small town worlds, rock star mayhem, and MMA chaos. Her other duties in life include: mother to four growing children and wife to the one and only.
