This year I am hosting J.L. Weil!

-->J.L. Weil is the USA Today Bestselling author of New Adult and Teen Paranormal Romances, including the Raven & Divisa Series. You don't want to miss out on any of the amazing books by this author.

And today she sure has a treat for you!! We get an exclusive cover reveal for her new book FIRST SHIFT! First, here is a description to whet your appetite: 

Something wicked is shifting in Seattle.

Karina Lang has enough on her mind dealing with college applications, her mother’s ailing health, and busting her butt after school at the cafĂ©. Forget boys. Who has the time? The last thing she needs in her busy schedule is to be mugged by a band of thugs.

Maybe fate is trying to tell her something.

A mysterious stranger shows up just in the nick of time. Coincidence? Not in this life. Karina must face the startling truth about herself. And Devyn St. Cyr has the answers she needs. But uncovering the secret of her heritage threatens more than just the world as she knows it, but her life.

Falling in love is not the answer.

Regardless of her feelings for the dreamy and steamy Devyn, Karina finds herself on unsure footing, a hot target for every ambitious otherworldly creature. As she struggles with her rare gift, Devyn is there to support her, protect her, and challenge her. In order for Karina to survive, she must do what no other kitsune in a century has accomplished—acquire nine tails.


Are you ready for the cover reveal?? Here it is!

Now to the REALLY fun part....what you could win! 

Dark Breaks The Dawn is a fantasy re-imagining of Swan Lake with some new twists. I've always loved Swan Lake, it's my favorite ballet and that music. Wow. Also, swans have always been my favorite birds. (I guess I have that in common with Evelayn, the main character in the book.) So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I saw my cover for the first time -- I actually got emotional, I loved it so much. And that image, along with the story's roots in Swan Lake, and Evelayn's love for swans inspired the items in the giveaway. Are you ready??
