Cover Love #2

I thought this would be a fun random post to share when I happen across a cover that captures my attention, as well as some of my favorite covers.
I love book covers and thought this would be a perfect way to share my love of them with others.
This is a random post so it could be multiple times a week or weeks in between it will be based on the book covers I encounter. 

Today's book cover is one that I just noticed has been updated and captured my eye. I've had it on my wishlist for a while but the new cover is amazing.

Opening Line
My life has always been a series of contradictions. I was born into a family of Vampire Hunters and spent my early childhood chasing monsters. After my parents were killed during a hunt, I was raised by a family of mortals. 

Grace Hardwick never thought her life would end up like this. She was born into a vampire hunting family but when her parents were killed, she was sent to live with a foster family. After ten years of a “normal” life, the monsters from her past have returned. 

When Grace is attacked the night of the Homecoming Dance, she is taken to the Darkness- a sanctuary for Dark Souls, also known as vampires, that have given up killing humans. But not everyone believes that monsters are capable of good, and a group of Hunters is closing in on the Darkness with only one goal- eliminating it. 

Grace has been brought to the Darkness at the command of its Premier, William Blackwood. He believes that Grace is the only one that can help save them. William is a centuries-old vampire and therefore Grace’s sworn enemy, but that is not the greatest challenge Grace faces in the Darkness. 

In a world where nothing is at it seems, Grace must quickly learn who she can trust. She was brought to the Darkness to save it, but it isn’t long before she realizes that the Darkness may destroy her.

Cover Reveal: Amnesia



Amnesia
Cambria Hebert
Publication date: June 12th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense


I washed ashore in a little lake town.
A place where everyone knows everyone, yet…
No one knows me.
I don’t know me.
If a woman doesn’t know her own name, does she really exist?
I don’t know my natural hair color, my birthdate, or where I live.
I am invisible.
To everyone, to everything, even to myself.
Except to him.
I see the recognition deep in his stare, the way it lingers on my face as if I’m a puzzle he’s desperate to put together.
I just want answers, the truth… knowledge.
His lips are sealed. Still, his eyes beguile me.
I can’t trust anyone, not even myself. Someone wants me dead, the same someone who tried to bury me in a watery grave.
They’ll come for me again… I won’t know their face.
I don’t even know mine.
I am amnesia.

Quinn Hamilton had it all—A grades, a loving family, and a spot on the waitlist for the latest Hermes handbag. The one item left unchecked on her to-do list was her brother’s best friend, Liam, and that was only because Braden was overprotective when it came to his mates. 

When tragedy struck, Quinn was left with nothing. Not even the handbag made it. 

Three years later, Quinn’s focused on the things that count—getting a steady job, looking after her mother, and playing it safe. Her dreams of working for a fashion magazine haven’t just left the building—they’ve dived into the gutter, never to be touched again.

But when completing a two-week internship in the city, Quinn meets someone who makes her do the one thing she’s been trying desperately to avoid—feel. Will this sexy man who knows so much of her history help her go after what she wants? Or is their brand of passion as outdated as last season’s trends?

She’s running from her past, but her past is running faster.

When the family dog trots in with my diaphragm in its mouth—in front of my date, his parents, and his adorable little girl—you would think I’d hit rock bottom.

WRONG.

Let’s back this up a sec…

Brendan Daniels is the sexiest man alive. The captain of the Badger’s NHL team is also clever, kind, funny, and was my good friend…until we cruised out of the friend zone one weekend with a red-hot fling. Come Monday morning, I wanted to keep riding the Big O train to happy town, but Brendan wanted someone who was “stepmom” material.

A.K.A, not me, apparently.

The problem? I’m crazy in love with him and his daughter. So when he asks me to be his pretend girlfriend for a long weekend with his former in-laws, I say yes. We’re still friends, after all, and friends don’t let friends fake it alone.

***

Laura Collins is the last woman I should be thinking about taking in the back seat of my car, in the woods behind my in-laws’ house, or in a hotel room where we’re sharing one very small, very squeaky bed.

I need a steady, stable influence for my daughter, not a fling with this too wild, too young, too impulsive red head. So what if she’s beautiful and intense and passionate and has the biggest heart I’ve ever known?

I don’t want to fall in love. I really don’t. The whole “pretend girlfriend” thing was supposed to solve my problems, buy me a little more time.

But when it comes to Laura?

Hell, maybe I’m just not cut out for faking it.

Wishlist Wednesday

Wishlist Wednesday
Created by Pen to Paper
Each week we will share a book that has been recently added to our wishlist or has been on it for ages. A book I can't wait to add to my shelf. 
I've been working on my ebook wishlist. I have so many potential amazing books that I want to read. 

I've had this one on my wishlist for a while. Sounds good to me. 
Rogue Huntress  
by  Thea Atkinson 
Add to (Goodreads) Shelf 


Dying isn’t the worst thing that could happen at seventeen, right? 

Growing up on the streets of New York City, I imagined my death probably about a thousand times. Getting hit by a stray bullet, ticking off an angry drunk, or even stepping off the sidewalk too quickly and getting run over by a yellow cab. But this… this was something I would never have imagined, not in a million years. 


I’m Aria Negrescu, and my name is pretty much the only thing in my life that turned out to be true. I was the poor little orphan girl who grew up bouncing around from foster home to foster home, each worse than the one before. 


But all of that changed one night when I met him. 


Now an unstoppable hunter wants to kill me, and if I’m going to survive I have to discover who I really am. And that means trusting a mysterious stranger I know nothing about. A whole supernatural world exists right under my nose, and I’m about to become a part of it. Whether I like it or not. 


If you loved the magic of Beautiful Creatures and the epic romance of The Vampire Diaries then you’ll get hooked on Magic Bound, the spellbinding first book in The Hybrid Trilogy.  


Buy Magic Bound today and stay up way past your bedtime tonight!

Can she find a way to save them all, and place her heart in the hands of the one whose soul resonates with her own, and still finish that damn book she’s got a deadline for?
