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

Eric Luper and Seth Baumgartner's Love Manifesto

Eric Luper is less than a day away from the release of his novel Seth Baumgartner's Love Manifesto. I love the cover! It looks like an iPod. To honor the books release, Eric is hosting an awesome contest. Here is the direct link.

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:

Would you like a copy of Heavenly? Jennifer Laurens is hosting a giveaway on her site. More details can be found here.

Forget-Her-Nots by Amy Brecount White

Something—some power—is blooming inside Laurel. She can use flowers to do things. Like bringing back lost memories. Or helping her friends ace tests. Or making people fall in love.

Laurel suspects her newfound ability has something to do with an ancient family secret, one that her mother meant to share with Laurel when the time was right. But then time ran out.

Clues and signs and secret messages seem to be all around Laurel at Avondale School, where her mother had also boarded as a student. Can Laurel piece everything together quickly enough to control her power, which is growing more potent every day? Or will she set the stage for the most lovestruck, infamous prom in the history of the school?
I am so excited about this book because I am going to the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville next weekend to meet ABW. She is speaking at a YA panel with another Tenner Jenn Hubbard.

TBR: Broken by Shiloh Walker


Quinn Rafferty is working as a bounty hunter and bail bondsman in St. Louis when a new neighbor catches his eye. He’s tempted by her beauty—but he knows from experience that anyone desperate enough to live in his building is damaged goods. Besides, he has his own soul to mend before he can worry about anyone else.


Sara Davis is on the run, but not for the usual reasons a woman goes on the lam. She’s not an abused wife, and she’s not a criminal. But she does have a plan for her future. And as much as she finds herself attracted to her gruff, tough neighbor, she can’t risk telling him the secrets she’s hiding. There’s just too much at stake.

Driven to desire…

But Quinn must get closer to Sara when she turns out to be the target of his new missing persons case, and he discovers that there is something more complex and dangerous to her than he thought. Now, both Quinn and Sara will have to expose their true feelings—as well as their fragile hearts—if they hope their love will survive…

He opened the door—

And stopped dead in his tracks as somebody all but fell into his arms. Somebody…a woman. And not Theresa.

He caught her just above her elbows, automatically steadying her.

“I’m sorry,” she said, her voice soft and low.

Then she lifted her face and Quinn found himself gazing into the biggest, brownest eyes he’d ever seen in his life. Feeling a little dazed, he studied her face while she stammered out another apology.

Quinn barely heard it.

He was too busy staring at her mouth. A very pretty mouth, a cupid’s bow mouth slicked with deep, vibrant red. Under his hands, he could feel silken smooth skin and unable to resist, he stroked a thumb along her inner arm.

Her skin was soft, soft and warm. He was also pretty sure she had the creamiest, most flawless skin imaginable. Her shoulder-length hair was a shade caught between blonde and brown, nondescript, but for some reason, he found himself thinking about tangling his fingers in that hair and holding her head still while he kissed that red-slicked mouth.

Well, hello…
