He loves me, he loves me not, he loves meWhen your friends go missing and you don’t know if they’re dead or alive; when you tie your soul to the one you love; when you kill to protect and your family suffers, there’s only one thing you can do:Move to Montana.Farley Hope is special. She was prophesied to kill the forebears of her bloodline- a race of cold-blooded Reavers, men who steal the souls of the living to gain power. The Quorum had counted on Farley ending her own life in the process, but when Kayden came to her aid and helped save both her and Daniel, he undid their plans. Now the Quorum are displeased, not only with Kayden, but with Farley and Daniel too. Though her father is now dead, Farley’s troubles with the Reavers are far from over. An ancient Immortal, trapped for a thousand years, wants Farley for himself, and he will stop at nothing to claim her.With secrets that lead to anger and pain, that turn friendship to dust, the group must overcome the problems within their own circle before they have a hope of fighting off the powers that threaten their lives.
( Personal Note: The book cover is so very sexy. The model who plays Daniel is super yummy. I almost forgot how to BREATHE! )
This or That Author Interview w/ Frankie Rose
Reading: Young Adult or Adult? Young Adult
Purple or Midnight Blue? Purple
Reading at home or reading at a coffee shop? At home. I react too much to what I'm reading to not look like an idiot when I'm lost in a book. My husband kind of expects it from me, but the general public would probably think I was nuts!
Winter or Summer? Winter. Ironic, now that I live in Australia, but I love the snow and cuddling up in front of a warm fire. It would be my ideal evening, curled up with a good book in front of the fire.
Meeting Edward Cullen (not rob) or meeting Patch Cipriano (hush, hush)? Patch!! For sure. Patch is badass and has attitude. Edward's a bit of a fop, really, isn't he?
Sushi or T-Bone Steak? Nooooooo! Don't make me choose! My two favourite foods right here. I wanna say surf and turf so I can have both. Is that allowed?
Laptop or Tablet? Laptop. Tablets are great for some things but mostly annoying when you need to type or do anything that might require a USB!
Writing: 1st person POV or 3rd POV? Hard question. I actually prefer writing 1st person now. I wrote Sovereign Hope in third and then had to stick to it for the following books. My next book to be released is 1st person, and so will the one after that.
Zombies or Unicorns? Zombies! no contest...
Dream Vacation: Paris, France or Rome, Italy? I've been to both cities and I have to say I wasn't blown away by either. I love the mountains, and when I go on holiday I like hiking or skiing or something like that. I don't like hanging out in touristy cities for very long. That said, if I had to choose between the two, I guess Rome was cooler.
Stand Alone novel or series? Series! I love being able to sink my teeth into a story that's
spread over 3 or 4 books. Makes you feel like you're going on a journey, and you really
connect with the characters.
Winnie The Pooh or Eeyore? Funny, my grandparents told me I was nicknamed Eeyore as a kid because I was so miserable all the time. I was a complainer, apparently. In light of that, I'm gonna stick with my homeboy, Eeyore.
About The Author:
As a child, I was always accused of being bookish because I wore glasses- big, horrible, ugly ones with too-thick lenses. Those kids, the super smart ones who always know which tender insecurities to poke at in order to provokelife-long complexes, used to accuse me of reading too many books and that my eyes were going to rot out of my head (their words, not mine!) The truth of the matter was a little more embarrassing: I used to sit too close to the T.V. That was the reason why I had to wear glasses, but kids don’t really care about small, insignificant details like the truth, and so I was labelled a nerd. The label kinda stuck, and after some sage advice from my awesome nana (nana, you rock!) I decided that if I was going to be abused for my supposed literary obsession, I might as well develop one. I guess that’s how I got into books and reading at an early age. Since then, I’ve been ripping through books like they’re going out of fashion, which, thankfully, they’re not. Good thing, too, because I’m a writer now, and books are my business!Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged me on my journey- look for your names in the acknowledgements! And a big thank you to you, the reader. I hope you’ve fallen in love with Farley and Daniel just like I have, and that you’ll join them in the next book, Eternal Hope!

Scavenger Hunt Excerpt: Written specifically for the Scavenger Hunt and cannot be found anywhere but participating blogs.
Farley felt her face redden, which was _________ inappropriate. Daniel and Kayden were _______ she was watching, and for once their sparring lacked the flashy showmanship they usually employed to _______ her. For the two of them, nothing _______ beyond the dimly lit parameters of the hangar. Beyond the lunge, beyond the parry, beyond the block.
This was how it would really go down, if they ever meant to do serious harm to one _______. Movements fluid and graceful, there was _________ primal about their circling. Quick _______ of calculating eyes, green and blue, preempting the other’s next move. Kayden’s hair was darkened with sweat, but both their chests rose and fell with __________ regularity. In and out. Slow and steady. The stern, focused expressions on their faces said ____ were in total control.
Farley let the darkness wash over her and kept her presence hidden. The confrontation was too ___________ to interrupt. Bare chests, muscled and tanned; silver flashes of metal as their blades sang through the air. Even Cliff would have been impressed. Farley bit her ______ lip as Kayden darted _______ in a sure leap, thrusting out with deadly precision towards Daniel’s throat.
The ______ would have been a killing blow. Would have been, if it had even ______. Daniel sprang back and duck-rolled over the dusty floor, crouching into a defensive pose. With his knife ________, his eyes lifted to fix on Kayden, but they _____ quite made it.
Farley’s heart leapt to her throat. Those eyes, piercing and sharp, fixed on her _______. She swallowed and braced against the wall behind her, trying to camouflage with the _______. Kayden shifted forward, ready to take _________ of Daniel’s distracted position, but the dark-haired boy simply lifted his hand. A wordless gesture:
Robotically, Daniel rose, his _____ suddenly vanished, and dropped the knife into the dirt. Kayden’s apparent confusion only lasted a second; the moment he ________ it - that she was there - was _______. One second he was ________ Daniel’s creased brow, the next he had spun around impossibly quickly and was staring, too. Blue and Green. Farley felt her throat closing up. She opened her mouth to speak, but nothing came out.
Daniel brushed a hand back through his slightly curling hair, his face trained into a nothing __________. There was ______ he could do to hide the war in his eyes, ______. “So you’re back.”
Silence flooded the hangar. Farley took a moment to _______, pretending not to ______ Kayden’s fist clenching repeatedly ______ the handle of his knife.
“Yes,” she whispered, her voice _______. “I guess I am.”
