Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Scion by Kelly Oram

I'm so excited to help reveal the cover of Kelly Oram's Scion, the third book in the Supernaturals series! As a huge fan of Oram's I'm excited about this one! Check out the cover below along with the blurb. And if you haven't started this series yet, give it a try. You won't be disappointed, with this series or any of her other books!

Russ Devereaux used to have it all—loving father, beautiful best friend, a carefree life in a town he loved, and strong magic. He was the king of his happy universe. Five months ago, that life was taken from him. Do not pass Go. Do not collect two hundred dollars.

He’s spent months fighting back and building himself a new life, in a new city, with new friends he now considers family. But suddenly, his new life might be in jeopardy of getting shot straight to hell just like the last one. Literally, this time.

He’s discovered power inside of him—an ancient, dark power that he shouldn’t have, can’t explain, can’t control, and definitely needs to keep secret. He needs answers, but before he can get them, he finds himself arrested and on his way to face the supernatural council. The same council that stole everything from him the first time.

As Russ struggles to keep his new power under wraps, his old life and he new one are about to collide and it’s bound to be explosive. He may not have all the answers he needs, but one thing is certain: he’ll be damned if anyone is taking his new life from him. That is, if he’s not just plain damned.


Not much to say about this cover besides it's awesome and LOOK. AT. RUSS.

What do you think of the cover?

Excerpt from Scion:

As we took the elevator up to the fifty-sixth floor my nerves reached an all-time high because of what I knew would be waiting for me when I reached the top. Or rather, who would be waiting. I glance at Duncan, trying not to let my panic show. “Are you taking us directly to the council?” 
“Yes.” Duncan eyed me suspiciously. “Is that a problem? It sounded like you guys wanted to get this over with as quickly as possible.” 
“We do,” Ethan assured him. 
I did, but that didn’t mean I was looking forward to it. I swallowed back the chunks that were starting to rise in my stomach and asked something I had to know. “Will she be there?” 
I avoided Ethan’s gaze and held my breath as I waited for Duncan’s answer. 
“She’s a member of the council now Russ, as is the Seer. They will both be there.” 
Of course they’d both be there. Because the universe hates me. “Does she know I’m here?” 
Duncan took a minute to answer me. “I thought it best not to warn her. She would have just agonized over it unnecessarily.” 
“Agonize over it?” That pissed me off. “She has no right to—” 
“You don’t understand. She’s been a wreck, Russ. I never even told her I saw you.” 
“She’s had no idea where I was this whole time?” For a second I felt bad. But then I remembered the way she clung to him when she said goodbye to me and I got angry again. 
Duncan sighed. “You asked me to keep her out of your life. If she knew where you were, she would have come looking for you. This is going to be very difficult for her. More so than for you I think. You seem to have moved on better than she has.” 
“I’ve moved on better?” I couldn’t listen to any more, and since I couldn’t really punch anything I kicked the side of the elevator. “She moved on before I left.” 
“Would you like to see her before you’re brought in front of the whole council? I can take you to a holding cell and tell her you’re here. The council would understand the delay.” 
“No.” That sounded like hell on Earth. “I don’t want to talk to her. I was sort of banking on never seeing her again. Lets just get it over with.” 
“It might make things go a little smoother if you got it out of the way before you’re questioned.” 
I laughed hard. “You think the council cares about questioning us? They’re going to do whatever they want no matter what Ethan and I say. To tell you the truth, Duncan, I don’t really believe they’re going to let us go. That’s why I came. If they’re going to try to kill Ethan, then they’re going to have get through us both.” 
Duncan laughed as the elevator doors chimed open. “Nobody is going to kill anybody. You’re always so dramatic, Russ.” 
As Duncan ushered us down the hall, I stopped hearing what he was saying. The consulate was fairly busy. There were people everywhere, but it wasn’t their stares that made my heart pound as I looked at them. I kept waiting for one of them to be a familiar face. 
Duncan gave me a sympathetic smile and shook his head. “The council isn’t what you think. They aren’t cruel monsters. Dani was an unfortunate case, so your perception of them is skewed. I promise you they can be reasonable, caring people. They want order and justice, and they will be fair. They’ll listen to your story. I honestly don’t think you’re in any danger.” 
“We’ll see,” I grumbled. 
I stumbled to as stop as we came to a set of large double doors. “Where’s Grace when you need her?” I gasped. Ethan glanced at me and I nodded at the doors. “Dani’s in there. I can already feel her energy.” 
“You want to hold my hand?” Ethan asked, holding out his cuffed wrists to me and batting his eyelashes. “I may not dissolve bonds, but I’m every bit as pretty as Grace.” 
I appreciated his attempt to give me crap. I needed the distraction. I was supremely messed up right now and he knew it. Joking might be the only way to get me through this. “Bite me.” 
We laughed, but the smiles left our faces the second the doors opened. Game time.

Cover Reveal: Snow White Lies by Sarah J. Pepper

Today is the cover reveal for Sarah J. Pepper's Snow White Lies, a NA fairytale romance which will be available April 26th, 2015. Make sure you mark your calendars!

Evil poisons everyone. Period. Our mouths water when we sink our teeth into what we have always craved. Surrendering to our desires by biting off delectable piece of the forbidden fruit is nothing more than a meager confession: Poison tastes sinfully sweet,” — Confessions of the Big Apple Debutante, by blogger Miss Snow White.


I'm intrigued by the cover and synopsis of this one. They're both vague, but allude to both modern and classic fairytale-like elements. The stark contrast of the red and black of the cover is really eye catching as well.

What do you think of the cover?
