Happy Wednesday! I have a special post for you guys today. Stephanie Alexander, who stunned me with The Cracked Slipper, has a new book coming out Friday called The Red Choker. This is a sequel to The Cracked Slipper and I cannot wait to read the follow up.
So today, I am giving you a sneak peek at what you can see this Friday. Here is the cover of The Red Choker:
Here’s the synopsis of the story:
Eleanor Brice Desmarais, she of the cracked glass slipper and unladylike intellectual propensities, has learned that happily-ever-after is as rare as a frozen dragon, even for a happenstance princess. She survived a plot against her life, but her marriage to the alcoholic, womanizing Prince Gregory of Cartheigh remains at best a sham, and at worse, a potential noose around her neck.
She finds joy in stolen hours with her lover, Dorian Finley, but her husband’s increasing suspicions, her stepsister’s continued scheming, and her own conscience create a rift between Eleanor and Dorian that seems insurmountable. A witch’s spell and a beautiful necklace are all that stand between Eleanor and a most permanent, and dangerous, heartbreak.
The Red Choker is the sequel to Stephanie Alexander’s bestselling debut novel, The Cracked Slipper.
Happy Tuesday. Today I am happy to show off the cover for a new YA thriller that comes out in November 2013. Ladies and gentlemen, drumroll please….. Here is the cover for Cheryl Rainfield’s Stained.
Description: In this heart-wrenching and suspenseful teen thriller, sixteen-year-old Sarah Meadows longs for “normal.” Born with a port-wine stain covering half her face, all her life she’s been plagued by stares, giggles, bullying, and disgust. But when she’s abducted on the way home from school, Sarah is forced to uncover the courage she never knew she had, become a hero rather than a victim, and learn to look beyond her face to find the beauty and strength she has inside. It’s that—or succumb to a killer.
Released: November 19, 2013
From the author: Like I did with Scars and Hunted, I drew on some of my own experiences of bullying, abuse, and trauma to write Stained and to give it greater emotional depth. Like Sarah in Stained, I experienced abduction, imprisonment, periods of forced starvation, mind control, and having my life threatened. And like Sarah, I tried hard to fight against my abuser, keep my own sense of self, and escape. I hope readers will see Sarah’s strength and courage, and appreciate her emotional growth as she reclaims herself.
Tagline: Sometimes you have to be your own hero.
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
I have read Hunted by Cheryl, about a telepath named Caitlyn, in a world where the power is illegal. Check out my review for that book here. I also had the opportunity to interview Cheryl last year. Check out our chat here. I am excited to get my hands on this book. Cheryl’s books are so gripping. They are very intense and take you to dark places that you get so immersed in, you know you shouldn’t be there, but don’t want to leave!
