Guest Post by Sarita LeoneRegenerate Book TourREGENERATE is a story of redemption, rebirth, and the restoration of order from chaos. It’s a paranormal romantic thriller but these are themes that are relevant to even those of us who don’t list “superhero” as our day job.The Octopus is a top-secret government intelligence agency whose operatives keep the globe and its inhabitants safe from all sorts of evil.When the world’s economy is threatened, the two best agents on the planet are called in. Benjamin Sinclair is one-of-a kind, a regenerated commando—that is, science has restored his life after a sniper’s bullet killed him. He’s indestructible and immortal, yet his regenerated heart longs for the only woman who’s ever claimed it. Nicole Anima is brilliant, beautiful, and badass—and she’s psychic so every mind on the planet is open to her. That is both a blessing and a curse, and she fights the madness that hearing humanity’s secrets brings her way.Anima and Sinclair have a past. She hasn’t forgiven him for his betrayal so when they’re assigned to work together it puts them both in precarious positions. They jump from planes, track down assassins, and kill zombies. That’s right, a zombie army is being manufactured to bring about global madness and the only two beings on the planet capable of putting a stop to it are this amazing pair.While this is an action-packed adventure—with plenty of sparks flying between the two agents—it is, as I said earlier, a story full of undertones.Regeneration is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. I’ve been personally affected by the medical miracles stem cell usage can bring. While they don’t save everyone who prays for a cure, they do save some. I hope that eventually they save more patients—but until that time, I will write Sinclair, the man who lives through the miracle of stem cells and now saves humanity.Nicole’s a strong, smart woman but she isn’t infallible. She is human, so she can be killed but she undertakes the most dangerous missions on the planet in order to keep the world safe for everyone. Her psychic gift doesn’t spare her from heartbreak, something that is clear from the very first page of this book. Still, she doesn’t shy away from doing what she is called to do. And while this pair jumps from planes, crashes into continents, and kills those who would kill them, she wages an internal war over her feelings for Ben. Forgiveness doesn’t come easily, especially when the offense is so devastating.We’ve all suffered in one way or another, and the characters in REGENERATE are tested—just like the rest of us!The second book in this series releases in December 2017. Nicole and Ben are once again saving the world from evil, doing battle where regular military tactics will not suffice, and dealing with the unique issues that face the most advanced team of agents on the planet.One world—and a mission to save it. Again.

About the book:
The Octopus isn't an urban myth—and its agents are anything but ordinary. The intelligence bureau is so well-hidden most doubt its existence. A handful know its location. And fewer walk the halls in the subterranean compound.
Benjamin Sinclair didn't ask to be a scientific miracle but every mission has its risks and one perfectly-placed bullet ended his life—for a brief moment in time.
Nicole Anima battles demons every day. Life as a paranormal resources operative gives her tortured mind a rest—and keeps her from contemplating her own death.
When Anima and Sinclair partner on a globe-trotting race to eliminate the threat about to cripple humanity, all hell breaks loose. Leaping from planes, crashing into continents, dealing with voodoo priestesses, and running through jungles with zombies hot on their trail doesn't leave much time for romance, but this duo somehow manages to sizzle.
Two agents. Telepathic mind paired with regenerated commando. One world—and a mission to save it.
EXCERPTRating high on the awkward factor—facing someone you’ve just had earth-shaking, huge-tidal-wave-climax sex with and feeling as if it may have been the best—and worst—choice of your life.Nicole could have hit herself in the head, payback for her brain not doing its job when she needed it most. She’d thought with her heart, not her wits and now she was going to have to deal with that.Who was she trying to fool? Her heart had nothing to do with it.No, that wasn’t true, either. She’d kicked common sense to the curb and let her heart rule. Now she felt a victim of an emotional ping pong match.Heart? Mind? Did it matter?They had rekindled something that never should have happened in the first place.Only now, she wasn’t sure about that, either. Hard to shake off the feelings she had for him. Her emotions didn’t care what he was—but her mind? A different story. Now, both heart and mind were more tangled than ever.Crashing onto South America after nearly being eaten by a zombie in a cemetery had left her psychologically vulnerable. Grabbing Sinclair—and his to-die-for body and better-than-any-fantasy penis—had been marvelous but the truth was, she had never been this confused in her life. About anything.Damn it, but she was screwed.In more ways than one.If only…Crap.If only she hadn’t enjoyed it so much.Staring at herself in the miniscule bathroom mirror wasn’t helping. Her skin glowed, the result of a mind-shattering orgasm. She had a flush that seemed so tell-tale she was embarrassed to have anyone see her. And her eyes, they were the worst. The glimmer in a satiated woman’s eyes was unmistakable.
