Blog Tour - A War of Hearts by Karen Lynn

Blog Tour
A War Of Hearts by Karen Lynn
Jan 15th – Jan 22nd


Three troubled souls tangled in a web of obsessive love.

Logan is poison and Kristen knows it.
She has developed a hatred for his decadent increasingly risqué lifestyle. Yet every time she tells herself she’s done, it never is. His hypnotic power over her draws her back like an addiction.

Logan’s tenuous grip on reality is crumbling. He feels like he is reaching out for an elusive source of fulfilment. Sometimes he finds it in deviant sex, alcohol, and drugs. Other times there is only darkness. Rich, powerful, handsome, he could have anyone he desires. But he’s obsessed with Kristen and will not let her go.

Jake is a struggling artist with a powerful determination to follow his dream.
But he is another beautiful mess. On a quest to find happiness and rebuild his life, he longs to escape the shadows of his past. But first, he must defeat the unrelenting nightmares in his head.

When fate brings Kristen and Jake together, it rattles their worlds. Love is not in their plans that day in
Central Park, but there is no going back.

Now, Kristen finds herself caught between two wildfires, Jake and Logan. When jealousy and explosive passion erupt into dark obsession, vengeance is all that is left.

Important Announcement - Closing One World Singles Online Dating Site

After weighing in on our options when it comes to the services and products we provide, we have decided to close our One World Singles Online Dating site. It was a great ride but with all of the dating sites online, it is hard to compete with thousands of sites attempting to reach the singles’ market. We have been bringing singles together since 1986, which started out as a mail order introduction service and morphed into a worldwide online dating service.

We are now going to concentrate on maintaining our One World Singles Blog, selling our books and T-shirts.

We would like to thank all of the people who have supported us on our dating site, but eventually, all good things must come to an end.

If you would like to know how we got into the dating business, you can order our book, Making Dollar$ And Cent$ Out Of Online Dating at the following sites:

We are looking forward to bringing you interesting advice and articles on how to maintain good relationships, tips on dating, and finding romance in the 21 century as well as other topics of interest.
