STARS - Cover Reveal! + Giveaway!

It's the moment you've all been waiting for!

I'm now going to reveal the cover of my upcoming YA standalone, STARS.

Are you ready?

Summary first, as always:

After the death of the King, Myra knows what she has to do. His son, Torren, Myra’s past best friend, will take the throne. But first, he has to marry Princess Arora, and Myra. His Mistress. Things have been like this as long as Myra can remember, there was a Mistress before her, and so on. The Queen doesn’t have the children, the Mistresses do, and then they get stars. One for marrying, one for completing the marriage, and one for bearing an heir. Myra’s known her fate from the moment she was taken into the royal family after the rebellion years ago.

After they marry, things start to change. The way the royals live is different now, less old fashioned, more modern. Myra is excited for this change, maybe things will be different, maybe she will be able to keep her future child instead of having to give it over to Arora like she should. But after a trip to Arora’s family, Myra finds out something that will ruin her forever.

She tries to hide her fate from Torren, and from Arora. And with a new rebellion rising up at the same time, it’s easy to. But when a rebel by the name of Carter says she’s the key to helping restore the former royal family back to the throne, Myra is faced with an impossible choice.

Stay with Torren and die with him and the Senile when the rebels attack, or join the rebels, and fight for a future that she never thought she’d be apart of.

Will Myra choose love, or duty?

And here is the cover! Hope did such a great job with the cover!!

Fillicent Scene!

I wrote this out of nowhere the other night. And decided to share!

It takes place in the middle of Thunder & Lightning (The Storm Saga #1.5) It's during their wedding night, of obvi, I don't write sex scenes, so it's not that. So don't worry, peeps. You can always count on me for that! ^.^



When the dress slipped to the floor, and his coat and a shirt came off, I literally couldn't breathe. I had only seen men without their shirts at war times, when they were being fixed up. I never went anywhere that men might be showing more than in thought proper. I never even saw my brothers without their shirts on, our heritage was so drilled into us I ha d never seen a chest before. Ever. I felt silly, thinking those things, but when Felix leaned back from kissing my shoulder, I reached out and tentatively touched him, it wasn't much, since he was still really a boy according to these times, but he was a man to me. My husband. My Felix. My thunder. 

He touched my hand as I trailed my fingers down his chest. "You seem a little shocked." He whispered. I nodded and bit my lip. He took his other hand and carefully put it on my waist and goosebumps went up my entire body. "Millicent," he whispered. I didn't know who was in more of a state of shock, him or me. I knew he's never seen a girl with a bikini, he told me he wanted to be careful, so seeing me in just my undergarments was driving him insane. And touching me no less. 

"I don't...I don't know..." He stammered softly.

"Me too," so I just leaned forward and kissed him. That helped him get back to routine. He explored new parts of me, and I explored new parts of him, until we both didn't have any clothes on and I was in the bed, and he was hovering over me and we just kissed. "I love you," he whispered to me. "I love you too." I whispered back. My thunder. My everything. We continued all night, things were awkward and were confusing but the fact that we were both doing this together and for the first time made it all worth it. I loved him, and he loved me. And that's all that mattered.


Got inspired from reading DELUGE. Lisa never ceases never to inspire me! Hope you liked, if you didn't, that's alright, I wrote this just for fun. :)

Happy Tuesday!

Cover Reveal: FRAGILE REIGN by Stacey O'Neale!

We're thrilled to help reveal the cover for FRAGILE REIGN (Mortal Enchantment #2) by Stacey O'Neale! Check out the cover below, and let us know what you think in the comments. Then be sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win a $100 Amazon or B&N gift card!

Details about the cover, from author Stacey O'Neale:

In case you're curious about the cover, the model represents Marcus. The background represents the woodland court and the caves at the bottom are where the members of the royal family live. I chose caves because the woodland court protects the forests of the world. I didn't think they would choose to cut down trees to make a castle, so the massive caves worked out nicely. If you zoom in, you can see where the doors and windows are cut out. The inside is very lavish. If you read FRAGILE REIGN, you'll learn all about it.
FRAGILE REIGN (Mortal Enchantment #2) by Stacey O'Neale | November 18, 2014
It’s been a week since all hell broke loose… Rumors of King Taron’s weakened powers have left the air court vulnerable. Kalin is desperate to awaken her akasha powers, except she doesn’t know how. Tension within the court is at an all-time high. Pressure is mounting for her to ascend to the throne, but a halfling has never ruled over any court. To solidify her position, the council has advised her to marry Sebastian—a high ranking air elemental she’s never met and her betrothed. Will Kalin sacrifice her relationship with Rowan to strengthen her court? Rowan and Marcus return to a fire court in turmoil. Liana’s death has fueled the fire elementals’ distrust against the air and woodland courts. The unbalanced elements have set off natural disasters all over the mortal world. Rowan takes the throne to restore balance, promising to unite the fire court. But not all elementals are happy with his leadership. Many are secretly loyal to Valac, which means Rowan needs to find allies for his cause. Can Rowan unify the court of fire before the elements destroy the world?
