Editorial Reviews


"Taking her karmic theme to another level, Tough Karma is a fine example of what makes the  Paranormal Romance genre so appealing. Turn the pages of Simmons latest novel and you will find yourself in the hands of a natural storyteller who creates absorbing and highly engaging storylines and a writer who is unafraid to explore the boundaries of her imagination. The result is an edge of your seat adventure of psychological intrigue that in keeping with the best Supernatural Fantasy novels takes the reader into a different realm of reality. This time it's astral travel and as you might expect Simmons adds her own exciting twist as she builds suspense to almost unbearable levels. Excellently paced she delivers a novel that twists and turns in a narrative that will leave you breathless whilst her characters are always sharply etched. The smouldering tension between Amber and Bryce will certainly meet expectations and whilst it's hard to add a new spin to the crowded Supernatural Thriller genre that's exactly what Simmons manages to do. A Little Bit Of Karma hinted at good things to come from Simmons and this latest release certainly exceeds expectations.  Proving Simmons to be  an exciting new voice in the Paranormal Romance genre Tough Karma is highly recommended." -

"Tough Karma - A Race Against Time took my preconceived idea and previous experience of Paranormal Romance, rolled it into a tight little ball and slam dunked it in the bin of 'old experiences'. There was no sign of the usual werewolves or vampires, nor was there cuteness of fairy's or the fire breath and scale hides of dragons. Instead, upon turning each page, I was opened to a whole new world of paranormal romance story concept and telling.The author expertly brought the characters of Amber and Bryce to life. So much so I felt myself dabbing away tears for fear of mocking from my partner that I would do something as 'mushy' as cry at a story in a book, and a Paranormal Romance one at that. But that is exactly what I did on a few occasions as I read the exceptional story of Amber's loss, not just of her husband but her child too.Bryce's character was caring, thoughtful and pretty much what we would expect the love interest to be in this genre. He was what Amber needed to get her through the tough times and emotional turmoil. With this love story, I could quite happily have walked away and not felt cheated, but when the paranormal aspect of astral projection was introduced the story took on a frightening new edge, a darker tone, and a frightening direction. The antagonist was exactly what every Paranormal Romance bad guy should be. He was handsome, charming, cunning, devious, and deliciously dangerous.All this added to the perfect storm of love, loss and the paranormal one would want and expect from this genre.This story was executed well, the characters were lavishly developed and the tone/mood what would be expected and more from a good read in the paranormal romance universe. " The International Review of Books

I am impressed that Author Laura Simmons takes the time in the beginning of this book to educate her reader on the definition and description of astral projection (astral travel), telekinesis and clairvoyance. If you have an open mind and believe the human brain is capable of so much more than our normal everyday functions. Even though I didn't read the authors Karma Series Prequel Titled Little Bits of Karma before this book. The author explained enough for me to know that her main character Amber Conner's life was filled with normalcy rocked by unimaginable grief. If you just can't enough Paranormal Romance, this thriller should be your next read. I enjoyed this book and will turn my attention to Dark Karma: Sword of Vengeance which is book two in Laura Simmons Karma Series.

From the Author

This story can be read as a stand alone novel. You don't have to read the prequel, Little Bits of Karma, unless you are an avid fan of reincarnation romance. The stories are very different and just two of the main characters from Little Bits make a cameo appearance in Tough Karma. I'm delighted to announce that Tough Karma: A Race Against Time is a Bronze winner in the 2017 Global Ebook Awards in the Fiction - Romance/Erotica (Contemporary) Category.
