Cover Reveal: SWEET PERIL


YES!  This is my favorite part of the whole journey to publication.  I love, love, love seeing the new covers!  It makes me HYPER, guys.  I've been hard to live with for the past two days, absent-minded and goofy with excitement.  Not to mention trying to set up a last minute cover reveal.  Whew! But bloggers are awesome, and they roll with it.

I could continue to babble, but I know why you came here, so let's just get down to it, shall we?

Sweet Peril is my second book, the sequel to Sweet Evil, and it's the second book in the Sweet Trilogy.

Sweet Peril is slated to release on April 30th, 2013.


A little insider info: Sweet Peril picks up six months after Sweet Evil ends, right after the end of Anna's junior year of high school.


Blurb:


Anna Whitt, daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, 
promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. 
She’d been naive to make such a claim. 
She’d been naive about a lot of things. 

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, 
even if it means embracing her dark side and earning 
an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. 
Her life has never looked more bleak. 
And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, 
plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, 
Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, 
in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim 
and give them hope for the first time. 
It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna 
and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. 
Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, 
overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, 
and face the ultimate question: 
is loving someone worth risking their life?




And Now For the Pretty... 










The Sultry 









The Dark 









The Fierce














Yep, those are the same models.  :)  I love that the dress is beautiful, but it's not the focus of the picture. Her face is. And what a face!  RAWR, Anna!

I LOVE IT SO MUCH, and here's why: It captures the tone of the story so perfectly, in so many ways. I cannot wait for you to read it.

CHARADE by Nyrae Dawn


Hello lovelies!

On sale now is the wonderfully sexy and emotional NA (New Adult) novel by my bestie, Nyrae Dawn.  I hope you will check out this gem of a story.







Blurb:

Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne tries to portray the perfect life to mask the memories of her past. Walking in on her boyfriend with another woman her freshman year in college threatens that picture of perfection. 

Twenty-one-year-old Colt never wanted college and never expected to amount to anything, but when his mom's dying wish is for him to get his degree, he has no choice but to pretend it's what he wants too. 

Cheyenne needs a fake boyfriend to get back at her ex and Colt needs cash to take care of his mom, so they strike a deal that helps them both. But what if Cheyenne’s past isn’t what she thought? Soon they’re trading one charade for another—losing themselves in each other to forget about their pain. The more they play their game, the more it becomes the only thing they have that feels real.

Both Cheyenne and Colt know life is never easy, but neither of them expect the tragedy that threatens to end their charade and rip them apart forever.

Cover Reveal: Shadow of the Mark

I had the privilege of reading the follow-up to Carrier of the Mark last year as one of Leigh's critique partners.  Very rarely do I find a sequel to be even better than the first, but this is one of those times! I'm so excited to read the final draft because I know it's changed a bit since I read it.  I hope you'll all check it out!


Author Leigh Fallon bio:

I started out life in South Africa. A year later my parents moved home to Dublin, Ireland. When I was older and realized my parents had moved me from exotic Durban, to sedate Rathfarnham, Dublin 16, I was rightly ticked off.

Giving up lions for sheep, I grew up in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains where I went to a convent school and had to contend with uniforms, gabardines, and nuns. When not dodging the beady glare of  the Sisters of Mercy, I was devouring every book I could get my hands on.

I traveled all over Europe while working in banking and treasury, but I gave up my calculator in favor of a keyboard and haven't stopped writing since. My first book, Carrier of the Mark, was published by HarperTeen in 2011.

Our home is in Cork in the south of Ireland, but we're currently on loan to Massachusetts in the US where I continue to write books about magic, ghosts, and romance, with a bit of Irish flavor.




And now for the PRETTY!!!!!




Book Blurb:

Life for Megan Rosenberg just got a lot more complicated.


While she evoked the air element, and her feelings for Adam intensified, a web of lies, deceit, and betrayal has been spun around  her.  With the Order tightening its hold, and the reinstatement of the Mark Knights, Megan has more questions than  answers as the Marked Ones grow in strength.

New people arouse suspicion, the DeRises start behaving strangely, and Megan begins to unravel a destiny shrouded in mystery.   It's a destiny the Order has struggled to hide,
and a destiny someone from the past--far in the past, has already laid claim to.

Alliances will be made, and friends will be lost, as the Order's dark secrets are revealed by the very thing they sought to destroy.

Halloween Booktacular


Happy October, everyone!

I'm taking part in a Halloween Character Booktacular, and I've decided to write the Halloween scene from Kaidan's point of view!  Kaidan will retrace his steps back to that final night in L.A. with Anna on the road trip, so we'll be diving deeper into his mind than ever before. I hope you will enjoy it, because it will be the last Kai scene I'll get to write for a while.  I'm deep into edits for book two (Sweet Peril), soon-to-be edits on a contemporary novella ebook (Toys), and beginning writing book three (Sweet Reckoning).  Eeeep!!!






You can visit the wonderful Savannah's blog, Books With Bite, to read the exclusive Halloween scene, and win signed Sweet Evil bookmarks!  After this event I will make the scene available here on my blog as well.  :)



Also, here is the newly revised cover for the Halloween Kai scene.  :)
