Hope’s Defeat Cover Reveal and Giveaway :)

AM-logo-socialmedia-banner

Hey Guys!

I’m gonna start by saying there may be a few quirky things in here also knows as mistakes. Gotta love being human. 😉

How was everyone’s summer? My kids started school this past Wed. I can’t believe I only have two kids in high school (my son is a senior and my youngest is a sophomore) this year. My oldest starts college next week. Like, how in the heck did that even happen? Time definitely goes fast, so be sure to hug your babies.

Let’s get on with the book news! So I’m getting ready to turn in another round of edits for Hope’s Defeat, the final book in The Fated Trilogy. I still can’t believe the series kick-started my writing career, and that I’m about to say goodbye to Trinity and the gang. It’s so incredible where this journey has taken me over the years. The best part? Interacting with fellow readers! I’ve learned so much from all of you! The book community is seriously the best out there, and I’m proud to be part of it.

Now to the Thank YOU’s! The magical Stacy Garcia used her magic for good to create some really amazing graphics for me. So shout out to her. To JM Walker with Just Write. Creations, thank you for bringing Hope’s Defeat to life. This cover is more than what I imagined it would be. Stracey Charran, you are the ultimate! Thank you for sending my book babies out into the cyber world so everyone can love them the way you do ❤ Amber Garcia, thank you for putting this cover reveal together, and a huge THANK YOU to everyone who posted/shared. Seriously, I’m so grateful ❤

While some bonds break, fate built theirs to last forever.

Winning the battle against Melia was supposed to give Trinity and Blain a chance to live a normal life. The problem is another evil has taken the Rogue’s place, shattering any promise of a future Trinity hoped to have with her sworn guardian.

Darkness now controls Blain.

Freeing his soul is a challenge Trinity gladly accepts, but rescuing the love of her life comes with one major complication. To save him she must go through Cronus, the ancient god who holds Blain’s light hostage.

Every Watcher Trinity enlisted failed.

Nothing is too extreme if it releases Blain. Summoning a forgotten god is dangerous, but for help in the fight against Cronus it’s worth the risk. In the end, she’ll even gamble her own soul to set Blain’s free.

Protecting humankind isn’t just a destiny Trinity was born to uphold—it’s her rite of passage. One that may cost her life.

#CoverReveal The Evolution of Us

~Release Date~

~Blurb Reveal~

Love.

They say it’s blind.

That you don’t choose who you fall in love with.

They say it creeps up on you when you least expect it.

They say it doesn’t let go.

I wish it were that easy.

I’ve been in love before, and it happened the way they said it would.

For a while, it was easy and full of bliss.

Until he uttered those damn three words, and all hell broke loose.

I don’t blame him for leaving.

Love is a beast, waiting to devour you at the first sign of weakness.

That’s what they don’t say.

It’s been four years, and a lot has changed.

I never expected to see Jake again,

but here I am, staring into those gorgeous eyes like they still belong to me.

See, I’m Finley May Norwood, the anti-Venus, the girl who pushes love away when it becomes too much.

Now, Jake’s engaged to someone else, and I’m too late.

If only my heart could accept that.

It simply doesn’t.

Love. Be damned.

~About the Author~

I’m pretty sure I drink too much Pepsi. I’m also pretty sure that somedays it’s what keeps me sane. Well, Pepsi and writing, that is.

I’m a dreamer, an inspirer. I find beauty in weakness, brokenness, and heartbreak. In life, and joy, and happiness. These moments don’t define us, but the choices we make in these moments do.

I write about these moments. About the choices we make and the paths we tread. About the circumstances that make us who we are and the experiences that will lead us to who we will become.

I write about life. Love. Pain. And hope.

d. Nichole King currently resides in a small town in Iowa with her supportive husband, four amazing kids, a dog, a cat, a fish, and a turtle.

Author: Angela McPherson
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance

Blurb:
Aside from the normal changes in her life, college junior Elle Richards can always count on her friendship with Tristan. The longing for him to love her back is something she keeps well hidden, even from herself. No matter how many miles apart they are, regular phone calls and texts keep them close…until the day everything changes.
Wide Receiver Tristan Daniels has a good thing going. Much to his, and every single woman’s surprise, he’s in a committed relationship. The possibility of going pro looks more than promising…until his spur of the moment transfer to a rival college is approved. Now, Tristan will be forced to be in the presence of the woman he’s secretly loved for as long as he can remember. Elle.
Being away from one another was enough to keep Tristan and Elle distracted, but angst, confusion, and troubled secrets launch them into a breathless, heart pumping story you won’t want to miss!

Frantically, I searched her face until I reached her wounded eyes, and my insides knotted with uncertainty. I claimed her lips with mine, fitting perfectly together. Her mouth opened, and the salty taste of her tears forced reality into the room. As much as I wanted the kiss to linger, I had to make her understand how much I wanted her, and only her. Reluctantly, I backed away.
“I’ve loved you since we were kids. I wanted it to be me instead of that dick, Mark James, on your first date. I’ve wanted you so fucking bad, but I never told you how I felt because the thought of losing you, even as a friend, terrified me.”
Her green, shock-filled eyes pooled with tears again. I did the only thing I thought would make her believe me. My hand wrapped around the back of her head, fingers weaving through her hair. I inched her closer until I felt her soft lips against mine.
The kiss started in a slow exploration. The moment my tongue met hers, her breath caught and her body shivered. My heart raced like a jackhammer when her fingers spread through my wet hair and the kiss deepened.
Damn she felt good, and tasted even better. Her lips were soft, but eager for more. Her hair felt like smooth silk beneath my hand. I wrapped my other arm around her waist and pulled her tighter against me, only it wasn’t enough. I wanted more.
