This week, we're celebrating the early release of Of Blood and Bone by Courtney Cole! Woohoo! I've missed reading this kind of book; it sounds dark, fresh, interesting and delicious and I've already read some great things about it, so I can't wait to read it!
About the book:
Of Blood and Bone
(The Minaldi Legacy, #1)
by Courtney Cole
Release: September 16th
by Lakehouse Press
As a little boy, Luca Minaldi was told he was a monster.
As an adult, he knows it is true.
He lives in Malta, a fairytale-like place filled with sunshine and sea, beauty and secrets. And Luca’s darkest of secrets is the best kept of them all.
Eva Talbot arrives in Malta for the summer to finish up her doctoral dissertation. When she meets Luca, a mysterious and handsome shipping tycoon, there is an instant attraction, a disturbing and beautiful energy that she has never felt before. But she senses the darkness that lives within him. Eva is hired to care for his mother, who suffers from dementia, but it is Luca who Eva will eventually risk everything to save. Her life becomes a swirling chaos of darkness and romance, of secrets and mystery. And the question that emerges will become the most important answer of all.
Can she save Luca from the darkness that plagues him without losing herself?
The answer is a matter of life or death.
About the author:
Courtney Cole is a novelist who would eat mythology for breakfast if she could.
She has a degree in Business, but has since discovered that corporate America is not nearly as fun to live in as fictional worlds. Every Last Kiss is her debut novel and she followed it with the rest of The Bloodstone Saga (Every Last Kiss, Fated, With My Last Breath and My Tattered Bonds). Courtney lives in quiet suburbia, close to Lake Michigan, with her real-life Prince Charming, her ornery kids (there is a small chance that they get their orneriness from their mother) and a small domestic zoo.
*This is not a YA book.
And we can't celebrate a new release without a little teaser now, can we? There are more excerpts at Courtney's website HERE, but I decided to share with you the prologue. It really pulls you into the story right from the start and you will want to find out the whole story ASAP. Enjoy!
Awesome, right? I think I know what I'm going to read tonight.:D I'll post my review sometime in October though.
P.S. If you check out Courtney's website, you can see her dream cast as well. *swoon* Just saying. ;)
