Cover Reveal: Lux Consequences by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Lux Consequences (Opal & Origin)
by Jennifer L. Armentrout



Opal
After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing alien hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.
Origin
Daemon will do anything to get Katy back. After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?

My Not So Super Sweet Life
(My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century #3)
by Rachel Harris

BLURB:
Cat Crawford just wants to be normal—or at least as normal as a daughter of Hollywood royalty can be. And it looks like fate is granting her wish: she’s got an amazing boyfriend, Lucas; her fabulous cousin, Alessandra, living with her; and her dad planning his second marriage to a great future stepmom. That is, until her prodigal mother reveals on national television that she has something important to tell her daughter…causing a media frenzy.
Lucas Capelli knows his fate is to be with Cat, and he’s worked hard to win her over once and for all. Unfortunately, Lucas has his own issues to deal with, including a scandal that could take him away from the first place he’s truly belonged.
As secrets are revealed, rumors explode, and the world watches, Cat and Lucas discover it’s not fate they have to fight if they want to stay together…this time, it’s their own insecurities.
Well, and the stalkerazzi.

Cover Reveal: Lux Beginnings by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Lux: Beginnings (Obsidian and Onyx) 
by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsidian
There's an alien next door. And with his looming height and eerie green eyes, he's hot...until he opens his mouth. He's infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, he lights me up with a big fat bulls-eye. Turns out he has a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal his abilities and the only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to him until my alien mojo fades. If I don’t kill him first, that is.
Onyx
Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro alien connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems. I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

Series: The Blooming Goddess Trilogy #3


Genre: YA Fantasy/Mythology


Publication Date: 3/20/14


Hosted by: Wordsmith Publicity


Book Description


To say that

Sophie Bloom is at the top of her game with one only week until spring equinox

and the final showdown with Zeus and Hades would be, well, lying. The Goddess

of Spring feels more like the Goddess of Bzz Thanks For Playing than the savior

of humanity. And could her relationships be any more messed up?



Good times.


Sophie is

convinced that things can’t get any worse than crawling back to her mother

Demeter and begging for help. But she’s about to find out how very wrong she

is.


It’s a race

against time for Sophie to implement the big battle strategy in the YA romantic

comedy/Greek mythology finale My Life From Hell. Love meets comedy with a whole

lot of sass in book three of this teen fantasy romance series. Save herself;

save the world. Humanity may be screwed.

Excerpt

Excerpt: 278 words

Of all the Prince of Darkness’ powers, his best were his bone-melting super-kisses. Which is why, when my boyfriend Kai, (formally known as Kyrillos, son of Hades, Lord of the Underworld) pushed me up against my bedroom wall with a liplock of mind whacking proportions, I didn’t do much other than grip his shoulders, try to stay in an upright position, and willingly participate.

But as right as it felt, I also knew that it was very very wrong.

“We have to talk,” I gasped as I came up for air.

“Overrated,” Kai murmured, nudging his hips up against mine. Instead of talking, he opted for Plan B, which was pretty much a new and improved version of Plan A. His hand clasped the back of my head to pull me closer.

If I pressed myself any harder against him, I’d be behind him.

Maybe that would be a good thing. Then I wouldn’t be distracted by things like the way his stupidly gorgeously-lashed eyes fixated on me, their normal espresso brown darkened and full of heat.

Kai shook his head, flinging a wayward lock of dark hair out of his eyes. That just made me want to sink my hands into his hair. And like the most pathetic Pavlovian conditioning, one of my hands snaked up to twine my fingers into the curled ends just below his ears.

His breath caught at my caress.

Kai leaned forward and gave me the most fleeting, teasing kiss, his lips brushing mine. My stomach fluttered at hummingbird speed in that split second of connection.

Kissing, touching; our chemistry was off the scale.

Sadly, so was the weight of our baggage.

Cover Reveal: Son of Set by Kelsey Ketch





Son of Set (Descendants

of Isis #2)















Release Date: 05/02/14









Summary from Goodreads:


“. . . the Sons would

never just let him go—alive.”






Seth O’Keefe has broken the laws of his god. He never thought he would

sacrifice his own future to protect a Daughter of Isis. But when the Sons of

Set discovered Natti is the Secret Keeper, he had no choice. Now, Seth and

Natti are on the run from his father, who wants nothing more than to see Seth

dead. With no allies, Seth turns to the Daughters of Isis for help, hoping they

would protect Natti. But when they meet the Daughters, he discovers a secret

that puts both their lives in more danger. Low on options, Seth sees only one

possibility for survival. He must help Natti solve an ancient puzzle and find

the secret name of Ra.










Natara “Natti” Stone is having a hard time swallowing the truth. She can’t

believe what she has learned in the past twenty-four hours: Seth is a Son of

Set blessed with charm; she is a Daughter of Isis blessed with a sliver of Ma

‘at; the locket her grandmother gave her holds an ancient Egyptian secret

linking to Osiris and Isis. That along with being tortured and brutalized by

the Sons of Set, she can hardly hold herself together. Thank God for Seth’s

touch! That warm, tingling sensation that drowns it all out. Yet her heart

struggles to stay focused. She must quickly embrace her destiny before the

secret name of Ra falls into the wrong hands.

Falling From the Sky Book Blitz























Falling From The Sky



Release Date: 02/21/14





Summary from Goodreads:


All stability in sixteen-year-old Ridge McCoy's life crashed and

burned in the plane crash that killed his dad. This summer-long basketball camp

is his chance to improve his skills and escape his problems back home. But his

summer plans take a turn in an unexpected direction when he meets Micah

Youngblood, the guy who runs the carousel at the local mall and has a

reputation for devouring straight boys' heterosexuality for breakfast,

alongside his chocolate chip pancakes.





Ridge needs a way to avoid the guys at camp, whose only quest for the summer is

to drown in beer and hook up with girls. So when Micah offers to explain how

the ten unique horses on the carousel are significant to his tribe, Ridge takes

him up on it. Still, Ridge can't decide if this is a bad thing or not. All he

knows is that he hasn't felt this alive since his dad fell from the sky, and as

the horse adventures come to an end, Ridge finds himself falling as well – for

Micah.


Excerpt 1

He reaches an arm out from under the towel and grasps my forearm. He pulls me closer to him, and everything in my brain says to fight him off, but my body screams out for him to just hold me close to him and not let me go. His other hand brushes over my bare shoulder, and I glance toward the sky to avoid eye contact with him. I see the towel fall from his shoulder out of the corner of my eye, and I know he’s inches away from pulling his bare chest against mine.

In this second of almost touching, I realize that falling for Micah – or any guy for that matter – will be a thousand times worse than falling from the sky. I have a girlfriend, and never in my life have I been attracted to a guy. At least not before now. No one has ever gotten to me like Micah does. His hands run along my arms, and I take the chicken way out.

“Will you jump with me?” I spit the words out quicker than I process them in my head.

Micah pulls back and inhales deeply. He’s not smiling with excitement or dragging me to the top of the bridge. He just stares at me with those sad puppy dog eyes filled with disappointment. He almost had me, and he knows it. That’s the point of a toxic green elephant – everyone sees it, but no one talks about it. However, he’s not talking at all, and the hurt in his eyes actually hurts me in return.

I look back to the bridge so if those brown eyes of his start pouring, I won’t see the raindrops. His hands leave my arms, and he steps beside me. He’s in my peripherals, but I don’t dare turn my head. It looks like he’s staring at the bridge, which means he’s either debating jumping with me or he’s refusing to look at me for the same reasons I won’t look at him.

“You sure you’re brave enough?” he asks.

I nod, even if he isn’t looking. “Yeah. As long as I don’t have to jump alone,” I say.

“If you jump, I jump,” he replies.

I really wish this hadn’t made me laugh. “Did you like Titanic?”

He laughs too, and I feel a world better. “I admit, I did…except for when Jack died. I mean, I get that it kind of made the movie, but I prefer happy endings.”

Hopefully this falling from the sky experience will have a happy ending for me, as in not smashing my head against a rock or drowning or being eaten by an alligator. Now is a good time to let my “what if” scenarios play out, and it’s an even better time to talk myself out of this.

I look over at Micah to suggest my many wild reasons on why I shouldn’t jump, but he’s smiling. Damn it. Why does he have to smile and actually want to jump off a bridge?

Being Hartley Book Blitz









Being Hartley




Release Date: 11/2013




Summary from Goodreads:

Fifteen-year-old Thea Wallis was born to entertain. Her mother, Oscar winning actress Cassie Hartley, thinks differently and has kept her daughter out of the spotlight since day one. Coming from showbiz royalty, it hasn't been easy to go unnoticed, but mismatched surnames, a family home in Tasmania and a low-key scriptwriter father has made this possible.


Just like her cousin Rory on the hugely popular TV show Saturday Morning Dance, Thea loves to dance. She learns the show's routines off by heart each week, despite her mother's attempts to convince her that dentistry would be a far more fulfilling career choice.


However, when Rory goes off the rails in LA, Thea's mother is suddenly left with no choice at all – Rory needs them and to LA they must go. Within forty-eight hours, Thea finds herself a long way from Tasmania and living her dream – on the road to Las Vegas with the Saturday Morning Dance team.


It doesn't take long before Thea's talents are discovered and she's offered everything she's ever wanted on a plate, including the dance partner she's had a crush on forever. But, as her mother has always told her, Hollywood dreams come at a price. Thea soon realizes she will have to work out just how much she's willing to pay. And, ultimately, discover her own way to be Hartley.
