Cover Reveal and Giveaway ~ Flame by Mari Arden

I was asked to help with the cover reveal for this book and how could I resist?

I couldn't!

Don't be in such a hurry!

We'll get to the cover. I promise!

We are going to start with Author information first.

My name is Mari Arden (Mari- rhymes with safari). Teacher by day, author by night. I love my double life. You can also catch me at the gym attempting to sweat out all the sweets I eat when I write. Key word: TRY. I adore sushi and Chipotle burritos, and wouldn't it be paradise if they could be combined somehow?.... Well on second thought, maybe not. I'm one class away from my masters in education, and feel so fortunate to do two things I'm passionate about: teaching and writing. Adventurous? Come join my double life!

Here is the Book Blurb:

Some secrets change your life forever.

Have you ever felt invisible? I do. Everyday. I can't get close to anyone, and people can't get close to me. Everytime I feel a friendship beginning, something inevitably happens, and I become invisible again. Unseen. Ignored. It's been a part of me for so long that it's hard to imagine anything different.

Then the Saguinox arrive, and my life is forever altered. People are fascinated by these beautiful creatures who look and talk like us. They're alluring. Seductive. Intoxicating. And two of them are going to my school. Rhys is everything I shouldn't want, but his eyes are like something from a memory. I can't help but be intrigued. He's the only one who can really see me.

Some secrets you're better off not knowing.

I had been found on a cold winter night with nothing but a blanket, and ashes covering my skin. My mother saved me from death, and took me in with love. But she couldn't save herself. I didn't think heroes were real anymore until the day Kaiden saved me. I couldn't believe in miracles until the day he revealed I was the miracle they had all been hoping for. Deep inside I always knew my past mattered.

I just didn't know my life would depend on it.

Doesn't this sound great?

I can't wait to dive into this series! :-)

And now, without further delay, here is the star of this post:

  3. Hi! The book sounds great but the cover isn't showing up, all I see in the place where the pictures should be is an X in the top left hand corner. I did enjoy the blurb though, and thanks for the giveaway!

    1. Sorry Rachel. I don't know what the problem is. If you want to see the gorgeous cover, check out it's Goodreads page.

  4. I absolutely LOVE this cover. Very dramatic feel to it. Have to agree with an earlier post about it looking like she is in the middle of a dance. Reminds me of my daughter and her peers during the yearly recital.

    1. She must be a good dancer. I haven't seen a recital in years!

  5. The cover is H-O-T, hot!!! I absolutely love it! It's gorgeous, yet has some mystique and flare. I'm intrigued just by the cover. And the blurb makes it sound even better!
