SEA by Heidi R. Kling Trailer

Check out the book trailer for the book Sea by Heidi R. Kling being release this Thursday! I have #sealove. Do you???

SEA by Heidi R. Kling

This Thursday, June 10th, is the release of Sea by Heidi R. Kling! I am so excited about this book and can't wait to get my hands on it. Here is the synopsis for Sea (taken from Heidi's website):

Haunted by recurring nightmares since her mother's accidental disappearance over the Indian ocean three years before, fifteen year old California girl Sienna "Sea" Jones reluctantly travels with her father's volunteer team to six months post-tsunami Indonesia. During her stay at the orphanage, she meets scarred and soulful Deni who is more like Sea than anyone she has ever met.

She knows they can't be together, so why can't she stay away from him? And what about her old-best-friend-turned-suddenly-hot Spider who may or may not be waiting for her back home? And why is her psychiatrist father so secretive about her mother's plane crash? The farther she gets from home, the closer she comes to the truth. And Sea's real adventure begins.

Tonight, Heidi is having Twitter giveaways for SEA goodies. All you have to do is use the tag #sealove in your tweets and you should follow her on twitter @HeidiRKling for updates. I know I will be there, so you should come on and join the party!

Additionally, Heidi is hosting a giveaway for SEA goodies on her livejournal. Details for the contest can be found here. The contest ends 6/20/10 and there will be more than one winner. Good luck! :D

Heavenly and Penitence Trailers

Hello my lovelies! I wanted to share with you two book trailers for Heavenly and Penitence by the lovely Jennifer Laurens, author of these two great titles and Falling for Romeo. Here is the synopsis for Heavenly (taken from goodreads.com):

I met someone who changed everything. Matthias. My autistic sister's guardian angel. Honest. Inspiring. Funny. Hot. And immortal. That was the problem. What could I do? I did what any other girl would do-I fell in love with him. Zoë's sister darts in front of cars. Her brother's a pothead. Her parents are so overwhelmed; they don't see Zoë lost in her broken life. Zoë escapes the only way she knows how: partying. Matthias, a guardian sent from Heaven, watches over Zoë's autistic sister. After Zoë is convinced he's legit, angel and lost girl come together in a love that changes destiny. But Heaven on Earth can't last forever.

Sounds lovely doesn't it? Well check out the trailer below...

The second novel in the series, Penitence, proves to be just as wonderful as the first. Here is the synopsis (taken from goodreads.com):

Book Two. Seeing good and evil spirits is a gift Zoe guards with her life. Despite her guardian angel's disappearance, Zoe forces herself to accept that she still has a purpose-but how does she carry the weight of her brother's drug abuse, the hardship of living with an autistic sister, and a best friend who's obsessed with a guy who only wants Zoe? She's never felt more alone. When a mysterious spirit appears, Zoe thinks she has a new guardian angel. Instead, her brother's addiction worsens, her parents are on the brink of separation, and her best friend tries to kill her. The spirit she thinks is her new guardian isn't there to protect her: he's out to destroy her family and seize Zoe's soul. . . for Hell. Will Matthias' return mean that he is Zoe's guardian angel again? Or is their love the reason the jaws of Hell now gape open?

Check out the trailer below:
