Freedom To Read: Start by reading Runes, book 1.




Thanks to Bookhounds and Kathy of I'm A Ready, Not a Writer for hosting this giveaway:

Since IMMORTALS, book 2 in the RUNES series, is being released in less than 5 weeks, you want to start reading this amazing new YA paranormal romance :  The hero, TORIN ST. JAMES, was nominated and participated in YA Crush Tourney 3 weeks after the book was released... that's how amazing he is. As for RAINE, you couldn't find a more gutsy heroine.

RUNES has nearly 70 reviews on Amazon and over hundred on Goodreads already. I want to hear from you, so add yours and join our discussions on YA Paranormal Romance with Mythology Fans on Goodreads.

To win a copy of IMMORTALS, head to Runes Blog run by some serious fan girls:

For now, one lucky winner will get an e-copy of Runes (so you can read it whenever) and a signed print copy and an Amazon gift card):



Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.

Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only are she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.




TEASER:


I staggered backwards, needing to put space between us, so scared I could hardly think. Pain shot up my arm. I looked down, trying to find its source, and saw the knife protruding from my shoulder. It was a replica of the one Torin had pulled from his chest. Maliina must have thrown both knives at the same time. Weird, I hadn’t seen the knife sail toward me or felt the pain when it pierced my skin. I’d been focused on Torin.

Tears rushed to my eyes, and wooziness washed over me. I hated the sight of blood, even though only a blot of red discolored my light-blue top.

“Easy, Freckles,” Torin said calmly. “Let me remove it.”

My head whipped up. “No. Touch me and I’ll scream.”

“Don’t,” Torin warned. He spoke with the authority of someone who was used to giving orders, and I found myself obeying and hating myself for being scared of him. What had Maliina meant by ‘he marked her’?

“I just want to help you,” Torin added softly.

“No. You’re crazy.” I shuffled away from him. I glanced at the others. Ingrid cradled Maliina in her arms while Andris etched runes on her arm. “You’re all crazy.”

Torin smiled. “Come on, Freckles. You know we’re not. We are… different. That’s all. Let me remove the knife, so the wound can heal.”
