Release Blitz for My Soul to Wake by Tara Oakes

Witchcraft. Reincarnation. True love. These are the things of legend. Unexplained, some even say impossible, but nonetheless prevalent in stories and tales from all cultures and in every land from the beginning of time. What if there is something to it? What if there is an explanation behind the mysteries and bedtime stories? Something beyond words? SALEM, MASSACHUSETTES 1692 She was taken from him in the cruelest way... condemned, sentenced and punished out of fear of the unknown. How is he supposed to live without her? How can he go on knowing that in this life, by the natural order of things, they will never be together? There's only one thing to do... only one option that will bring them together again. SALEM , MASSACHUSETTES TODAY Amelia is taken on a weekend excursion with her best girlfriends to let loose, relax and have a little fun. What harm is there in a little vacation? It's not like the legends, the haunted history of the place can scare them away. It's all harmless fun. Or so she thought. Something seems familiar about the town. The trees, the winds, the feel of everything. Her ever present nightmares have become more intense within the limits of the old historical setting. She's prepared to write off the whole trip as nothing more than a case of her mind running away with the sensationalized magic here. When she meets a handsome stranger who's eager to know her in a way no one else can, she begins to think there may be something more to this place, something more to him. Will has been waiting, biding his time, and praying that she'll come back. He's broken the natural order of things to possibly find her again, weaving their way through the years until they can be together again. He knows he may never find her, but he can't risk not trying. This place calls to her, just as it did to him. It will bring her back home. It will bring her back to him. What's 300 years when it comes to true love? He's prepared to wait an eternity if he has to, just to see her, hold her, kiss her again.. to make her remember what was stolen from them so long ago. To make her remember who she is, the power she possesses and the love they swore to each other.


Review by Gia:
Wow, this book is a great read!  Leah has vivid nightmares.  The dreams return often and she rarely get a restful sleep.   Her dreams keep from ever having any sleepovers, even as a kid.  Only her two best friends, Courtney and Nina know about her dreams.  Her dreams which cause panic attacks prevent her from starting anything serious with guys, she has a string of one dates.   Courtney and Nina take Leah on a girls weekend to Salem, Massachusetts.  
In Salem things change for Leah.  Salem is rich in interesting history.   While on their trip they go to a bar and their paths cross with Will.  Will is handsome and takes a liking to Leah right away.  Will lives in Salem and he becomes their unofficially tour guide.  Will shows Leah parts of Salem most tourist don't know about, he also tells her a story that's not in the history books.   
Leah falls hard and quick for Will.  She finally get some restful sleep.  They seem good together, even her best friends like him.  His friend, Liza, doesn't like Leah and tries to keep them a part.   Will tells her of witches, his true love, and reincarnation.   Liza tells Leah that Will is delusional.   Leah has to figure out for herself if see believes in true love and reincarnation or it is just made up.
I loved reading this.  The story is great.   We get flashbacks of the past so we can get a feel for what happen over 300 years ago.   I loved the mix of history and love.  The story hooked me in right from the being and held my interest the whole time.   It's book one so it leaves you wanting more.  
5 Amazeballs Stars!!!
