Book of the Day: Jeweled

I am chatting tonight about JADED (releases today!) at 9pm ET at Writerspace. Join me ~ www.writerspace.com/chat

The winner of yesterday’s books is Tracey D., who said, “I’m looking forward in spending some quality time with my parents this summer. They are getting older and have a few health issues and time is just too short. Last summer, I worked 6 out of 7 days and saw very little of them….” Congrats! Please drop me an email at anyabast(at)gmail.com!

Today’s book……

Defined by magic. Ruled by desire.

In the Court of Edaeii, magic-imbued Evangeline is rewarded for her gift in manipulating emotion with a sapphire stone set into the perfect curve of her lower back. Her greatest rival in the royal court is the enigmatic Anatol, instilled with the power of illusion. He may better her in magic, but he is her absolute equal in passion.

They share something else—they’re both targets of low-born revolutionaries bent on overthrowing the palace of the privileged few. Rescued from the mobs by Gregorio, the brilliant revolutionary mastermind, they’re given sanctuary. But in this warm refuge, Evangeline soon finds herself torn between the magic of one man she has always desired, and the excitingly new and radical moves of another. For her, there is only one choice.

Evangeline, Anatol and Gregorio come together as one to explore the possibilities of love beyond reason, and to indulge in pleasure without limits.

Read the first chapter.

  1. I’m looking forward to reading both Jaded and Jewelled. I’m hoping to convince my bookclub to read Jewelled, I don’t know how we missed the announcement…

    I’m also looking forward to Nightfall by Ellen Connor.

  2. I’m waiting to get a hold of a couple more books for Kylie Brant’s Mindhunters series then I can read that.

    Of course I’m also always looking for anything new by Lora Leigh, either a breed book or SEAL/ Black Ops book

  3. I just received an early copy of Collide by Megan Hart that I can’t wait to start. I’m also looking forward to Changing the Game by Jaci Burton. It doesn’t come out for a couple of months though. I want to read Jaded but I need to read Jeweled first.
