About the Book
LEGEND OF ME
Author: Rebekah Purdy
Release Date: Early 2014
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Sixteen-year-old Brielle has grown up hearing tales of a beast that kills humans, leaving behind only a scattering of bones and limbs. Or so the village elders say. She thinks it’s just their way of keeping children in line, though it doesn’t explain her grisly premonitions of blood, claws, and severed heads.

When Lord Kenrick, Knight of the Crowhurst Order, shows up asking questions about the legendary monster and Brielle finds a mangled body in the woods, she begins to wonder if the grim stories are true. Her attraction to the handsome knight grows as she spends time with him searching for clues to the creature’s existence, and she becomes even more determined to help him discover the beast’s location.

But as her seventeenth birthday approaches, her nightmares worsen. If Brielle doesn’t figure out the connection between Kenrick, the monster, and visions of a ghostly woman in the woods soon, more people could die. Including those closest to her…


Exclusive Excerpt!

Brambles scratched my legs, snagging my skirt. Gnarled trees bent in gruesome forms, while thick shadows splayed out beneath them. A heavy gloom settled over the woodland as wisps of fog slithered like snakes against the ground. I shivered.

Don’t think. I picked an animal trail to follow, stepping over dead branches and forest debris. Blood pounded in my ears and the hair on the back of my neck prickled. I twisted around to glance behind me.

Nothing there. Only the trees. Urgency gripped hold of me and I picked up my pace once more. As I scrambled through the thicket, an overwhelming scent of rotten meat made me gag. I covered my mouth with my hand and stopped running when a bright red piece of fabric caught my eye. With hesitant steps, I moved toward it.

“Oh God.” I stumbled. There, sticking out from beneath a barberry bush was a severed arm, its finger pointed at me in accusation. My breath came in gasps as I scanned the rest of the clearing.

My foot nudged against something and I looked down in horror to find the head of Liam Gatekeeper staring up at me.

I screamed, backing away as fast as I could. All around me were pieces of his body scattered like breadcrumbs. I shielded my eyes with my hands, until I bumped into something else.

With another scream, I whipped around only to find myself faced with an oak tree covered in dried blood and deep claw marks. My vision darkened and I prayed I wouldn’t faint, that I wouldn’t be stuck in the woods. Because somewhere out here, a monster lurked. If I didn’t believe it before, I did now. The beast was real.


About the Book
THE WINTER PEOPLE
Author: Rebekah Purdy
Release Date: July 1, 2014
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Pages: 320
ISBN: 978-1622663682
An engrossing, complex, romantic fantasy perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore or Maggie Stiefvater, set in a wholly unique world.
                                                                                                    Salome Montgomery fears winter—the cold, the snow, the ice, but most of all, the frozen pond she fell through as a child. Haunted by the voices and images of the strange beings that pulled her to safety, she hasn’t forgotten their warning to "stay away."                                                                                                                                       For eleven years, she has avoided the winter woods, the pond, and the darkness that lurks nearby. But when failing health takes her grandparents to Arizona, she is left in charge of maintaining their estate. This includes the "special gifts" that must be left at the back of the property.
 

                                                                                                                                                                                               Salome discovers she’s a key player in a world she’s tried for years to avoid. At the center of this world is the strange and beautiful Nevin, who she finds trespassing on her family’s property. Cursed with dark secrets and knowledge of the creatures in the woods, his interactions with Salome take her life in a new direction. A direction where she’ll have to decide between her longtime crush Colton, who could cure her fear of winter. Or Nevin who, along with an appointed bodyguard, Gareth, protects her from the darkness that swirls in the snowy backdrop. An evil that, given the chance, will kill her.


Exclusive Excerpt!

The sky darkened with ominous storm clouds. Giant flakes fell onto my face, sticking to my eyelashes and cheeks. Snow blew unhindered across the yard into what looked like small tornadoes.

Oh God. It’s happening again. The frigid air. The creaking of the treetops beneath the wind. Even the way the snow blew across the yard.

I only had one more feeder. Just needed to toss the seeds in then I could leave. Be safe.

The pond water rippled, while the trees bent beneath the strong gusts. Soon, everything became so white I couldn’t see the house. In the distance a strange tinkling sounded, like dozens of wind chimes.

What had the shrink told me to do?

Ten, nine, eight. Breathe. Seven, six, five. Shit!

Panic stole my thoughts. I backed away from the pond as the flurries swirled toward me. Chasing me.

Then, I bumped into something—something that felt quite human. A firm chest, arms, hands. Not something, someone. A shriek tumbled from my lips and I spun around to face my captor.

“It’s okay. I won’t hurt you,” a soft masculine voice said, pale hands clinging to my arms as he kept me from falling.

My gaze followed those long fingers, up black leather sleeves, to the most gorgeous face I’d ever seen. My breath caught in my throat. I’m gawking. But I couldn’t help it. His raven hair shot with strands of blue, his face pale and perfect, like an ice sculptor had chiseled it into existence. His eyes—oh God, his eyes. They were the palest blue I’d ever seen. Glacial. He had to be over six feet tall, muscles evident through the tight shirt he wore beneath an unzipped jacket.

His mouth turned up at the corners as if enjoying my scrutiny. A cocky grin that made my cheeks warm.

“You’re trespassing.” I tried to keep the tremble from my voice. “This is private property, or can’t you read the signs?” Bravo, that’s right, scare him off with your bitchiness.

He chuckled. And it sounded like the low song of the chimes. “Doris doesn’t mind me coming around. In fact, I’ve met you before, Salome.”

My name on his lips made my knees go buttery. I groaned inwardly.

“You know my grandma?” I fidgeted with the bucket still in hand.

He gave a nod. “Yeah, I’ve known her for years. But I haven’t seen you since you were a child.”

Warning bells went off in my mind, but I pushed them aside. If he knew my grandma, then he must be okay. “Funny, I don’t remember you at all.”

“Don’t you, Salome?” Strands of my hair blew about my face. He reached a hand out as if to touch them then stopped, dropping his arms back to his side.

“No. Grandma’s never mentioned you.”

He gave me another cocky grin. “Well then, maybe we should be reacquainted.”

“Or maybe not.” I snorted. “I’m not sure how you got on the property, Grandma keeps all the gates locked.”

He produced an antique-looking skeleton key. “She gave me this. Like I said, Doris has known me for a long time.”

“I’m sorry. I’m not trying to be a jerk or anything, it’s just my grandma never mentioned I’d have visitors.” In fact, I wondered why she didn’t ask this guy to watch her house instead of me.

The arrogance left his face and he stared at me. “Perhaps, we can try this again.” He held his hand out to me. “I’m Nevin.”



 About Rebekah: 

Rebekah was born and raised in Michigan (just look for the mitten-shaped state on the map). She’s lived there most of her life other than the few years she spent in the U.S. Army.  At which time she got a chance to experience MO, KS, SC, and CA.

She works full time for the court system and in her free time she writes YA stories. Pretty much any genre within the YA realm is game for her, but her favorites are fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, thrillers, light sci-fi, and some time travel.

She also has a big family–she like to considers them the modern day Brady Bunch. When her hubby and her met and got married, he had 3 children from a previous marriage, she had 2 and  have 1 together. It’s a lot of fun though.

And she can’t forget her other family members–yep, they’ve got some pets: 4 dogs, 3 cats,  and 1 turtle. Everyone in the family has one…she won’t bore you all with their names (unless you really want to know). Okay, you talked her into it! Jack, Pearl, Grr…(yes that’s her dog’s name), Callie, Shadow, Mooshoo, Grouchy, and Sorbert. Other than writing some of her other hobbies include: reading (mostly YA of course), singing, swimming, football, soccer, running, camping, sledding, church, hanging with her kids, and traveling.

She belong to a fabulous writing group called YA Fiction Fantatics (YAFF) and you guessed it they all write YA!

Cover Reveal-COPPER RAVENS by Jennifer Allis Provist


Today I have a stunning cover to share with you! The second book in her Copper Legacy Series, COPPER RAVENS by Jennifer Allis Provost releases in 2014 by Spencer Hill Press. The cover was designed by Lisa Amowitz and it’s gorgeous! Ok on to the cover….


Sara should be happy.

She has what every girl wants: a man who loves her, a beautiful home, and wealth beyond imagining. She rescued her brother from the Peacekeepers, destroyed the Iron Queen, and doesn’t have to go to her boring job any more.

And yet… Sara still doesn’t know if her father is alive or dead. Her mother hides in the garden, brooding about her missing husband. Her sister, the Inheritor of Metal, is scared of her own shadow, and her brother spends his days fighting and gambling. To add to Sara’s misery, the new queen (gold, of course) is more than a bit crazy, she misses her life in the Mundane world, and, worst of all, Micah wants to have children. A lot of them.


As Sara wavers between happiness and homesickness, a conspiracy emerges against the Raven clan, implicating them in a plot to dethrone the Gold Queen. How can Sara prove her family’s innocence, and become the consort Micah needs her to be, without losing herself in the process?
Also check out the full jacket!


About Jennifer: 

Jennifer Allis Provost is a native New Englander who lives in a sprawling colonial along with her beautiful and precocious twins, a dog, two birds, three cats, and a wonderful husband who never forgets to buy ice cream.

Convinced that the only solution is to find Prince Zabriel, who long ago disappeared into the human realm of Warckum, and persuade him to take up his rightful crown, Anya journeys into the Warckum Territory to bring him home. But her journey is doomed to be more harrowing than she ever could have imagined…

Blog Tour- FIREBLOOD by Trisha Wolfe a Deleted Scene and a Giveaway!!


I am really happy to have Trisha Wolfe here today to kick off the FIREBLOOD Blog Tour! Trisha is a dear friend of mine and I was lucky enough to get to beta read this for her in its early stages. And I fell in love with Devlan the minute I met him! I asked for a deleted scene so I get to share that with you today and check out the giveaway below!

Haven't heard of FIREBLOOD? Check it out!


To save a kingdom, Zara must choose between a prince who could be the answer and a rising rebellion that threatens to take control.

When Zara Dane is chosen to marry Prince Sebastian Hart, son of the man who ordered her father’s capture, Zara knows she must fight to save everything she loves from ruin.

Being betrothed to the prince means a life trapped behind the towering stone walls of the Camelot-forged realm. Under the watchful eye of the prince's first knight, Sir Devlan Capra, changing her future becomes difficult.

When an unlikely rebel reveals the truth about the deadly secrets that fuel King Hart’s twisted world, Zara’s path to rescue her father becomes clouded by deception. The Rebels clear her path by forcing Zara’s hand with an ultimatum: sway Prince Sebastian to join the Rebels, convincing him of his father’s evil nature, or they will take him out.

But Zara is uncertain about a future under the Rebels’ command and where the prince’s heart truly lies. She must decide who to trust, what to believe, and what she’s truly fighting for before the king destroys all of Karm, including her heart.

Now on to the yummy deleted scene!!!

 DELETED SCENE FROM FIREBLOOD BY TRISHA WOLFE

I reach behind my back and unlace my dress, then work it to the ground. My thin slip clings to my body.
          Devlan’s face falls, his mouth parts. “What are you doing?”
          I shrug, innocently. “I can’t fight in all this clothing, remember? And besides, I thought there was a lesson on using my secret weapon coming up.” I wink.
          A full smile takes over his face. The beautiful smile I see so rarely. “You really think you can best me with you skills?” He cocks his head. “My skills far outmatch yours, little Zara.” He yanks his vest and tunic off at the same time.
          I clear my throat. “Nothing I haven’t seen before.”
          His eyebrows shoot up. “Oh? Well then, I’ll remedy that.” He goes to undue his trouser snap.
          My face flushes and I run at him, knocking my shoulder into his chest. “Keep your pants on,” I grunt out. “I’m sure it’s not the first time you’ve heard that.”
          He laughs. “You’ve gotten vulgar in with our training.” 

Love me some Devlan!!!! Thanks Trisha!

Review- THE FIERY HEART by Richelle Mead

THE FIERY HEART (Bloodlines Book #4)
Richelle Mead
Release Date: November 19, 2013
Hardcover: 438 pages
Publisher: Razorbill
ISBN:  978-1595143204
Source: Hardcover from the publisher
Rating: Obsessed!!!!!!!!!!!
From Goodreads.
In The Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her. . . .

But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there's still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure—and re-education—looms larger than ever.

Pulses will race throughout this thrilling fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.

Y’all! Richelle Mead may just be the death of me! I thought the wait for THE FIERY HEART after reading THE INDIGO SPELL was going to kill me well let me just tell you the wait for SILVER SHADOWS is going to be way worse!!!!!!!!

One thing I loved the most about THE FIERY HEART were the dual POV’s. I really love Sydney but finally getting to get a glimpse into Adrian’s mind was awesome! You actually get to see how Spirit affects him, I mean we could already see it through Sydney’s POV but with Adrian’s I actually felt like I could feel Spirit’s side effects as well his highs and lows, when he was hurting I hurt along with him. The love story between Sydney and Adrian was really sweet in this one. What I loved about this book was them learning to trust each other and what the other needed. Trust me peeps you won’t be bored there are some seriously smexy scenes in the book!

All of the characters in this series have really grown and I find myself really getting wrapped up in each of their stories. I feel so bad for the lovesick Jill and Eddie as well as Angeline and Trey. Ooh and we also get to meet a new Guardian who even though he’s quiet I grew to like! I also loved that Sydney was exploring her magic more and trying to find a way to break away from the Alchemists. I hated the addition of Zoe (Sydney’s sister) I know why she had to be brought into the story but she drove me nuts I actually hate that chick! Ooh and we also get to see some of our favorites from The Vampire Academy series I won’t say who but fans of the VA series will be very happy.

I honestly think the Bloodlines series is my favorite! Yep over The Vampire Academy! Don’t get me wrong I still love TVA but Adrian and Sydney’s story just resonates with me more!

I’m going to share a scene with you now from Adrian’s POV because I love him and it’s s swoon-worthy scene.

“I made you cry,” I said. That memory would always be a wound in my heart.

“I cried because I loved you, and I didn’t know how to fix you.” She reached up and brushed my lips with her fingertips. The world swayed around me. “And that was my mistake. You fixed yourself. You didn’t need me.”

“No, Sydney.” My voice was ragged. “I do need you. You have no idea how much I need you.”

I brought my lips down to hers, and it was like everything that had ever happened to me had simply been a warm-up for this moment, that this was where my life truly began. I pulled her to me, and if she’d ever had any doubts about whether I wanted to taste her blood, I knew they vanished then and there. It was the taste of her mouth, the taste of her skin…those were what I craved, the things that drove me wild. Her hands caught the edge of my shirt, and we broke the kiss briefly so that she could pull it over my head. She splayed he fingers on my chest, and this time she was the one who shook. I looked into her eyes, and although they burned with passion and longing and that primal need that had fueled both our races since the beginning of time, I could see the nervousness in them too.

Want to know what happens next? You’ll just have to read the book to find out!

Blog Tour- RESIST by Sarah Crossan Dream Cast and a Giveaway!


Today I have Sarah Crossan stopping by to share her dream cast for BREATHE and RESIST! Makes sure to stick around there’s a giveaway as well!


Haven’t heard of RESIST? Check it out!

Title: RESIST
Author: Sarah Crossan
Pub. Date: October 8, 2013
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Pages: 368
Find it: 
Amazon/Barnes & Noble/Goodreads
The sequel—and conclusion—to Sarah Crossan's Breathe. Three teen outlaws must survive on their own in a world without air, exiled outside the glass dome that protects what's left of human civilization. Gripping action, provocative ideas, and shocking revelations in a dystopian novel that fans of Patrick Ness and Veronica Roth will devour.

Bea, Alina, and Quinn are on the run. They started a rebellion and were thrown out of the pod, the only place where there's enough oxygen to breathe. Bea has lost her family. Alina has lost her home. And Quinn has lost his privileged life. Can they survive in the perilous Outlands? Can they finish the revolution they began? Especially when a young operative from the pod's Special Forces is sent after them. Their only chance is to stand together, even when terrible circumstances force them apart. When the future of human society is in danger, these four teens must decide where their allegiances lie. Sarah Crossan has created a dangerous, and shattered society in this wrenching, thought-provoking, and unforgettable post-apocalyptic novel.

 On to the dream cast! All photos are from imdb.com

BREATHE and RESIST fantasy cast list by Sarah Crossan

I always think of BREATHE as a book, but if the series were ever to be made into a film, here are my suggestions for possible actors.

·        Alina – Saoirse Ronan -the actor who played Alina would need to be able to do some stunts, and I know Ronan is great in action movies. The actress would also need to be able to portray quiet vulnerability. Also, Saoirse Ronan is Irish. We have to give at least one role to the Irish! 


·        Bea – Hailee Steinfeld – Bea has integrity and quiet courage. I think Steinfeld has shown she can portray both of these things. Also, Steinfeld has the right complexion!


·        Quinn – Harry Styles – ok, ok, I know he isn’t an actor, but his face fits. I think he’d brilliantly show the complexity of being someone outrageously good looking but a bit clueless!


·        Ronan – Liam Hemsworth – is he too old for the role? Probably, but he looks like he’d be in the Special Forces and might crush you with one hand. Plus, he’s pretty!


·        Silas – Aaron Johnson – another actor that might be too old, but when I wrote Silas I always had Johnson’s face in my mind. He’s an actor who plays troubled very well, which I feel Silas is. 


·        Maude Blue – Maggie Smith – Do you watch Downton Abbey? If you do, you’ll know why Smith is perfect for the role: sharp, witty lines timed to perfection.


·        Bruce – Timothy Spall – nothing says harmless drifter like Spall. I saw him in a restaurant while I was editing RESIST and I thought – “It’s you, Bruce, it’s you!”


·        Pod Minister – David Morrissey – I have loved David Morrissey ever since his days staring in UK TV dramas. He always plays a baddie perfectly, most recently in The Walking Dead.


·        Jude Caffrey – James McAvoy – Jude is a complicated character who never quite knows which side he’s on. McAvoy has played a huge variety of complicated roles including Macbeth, so he’d be perfect. Also, if he were to act in the film, I’d get to meet him, right?  

Great cast right? I’m drooling over McAvoy right now lol!
