Hi, guys! The week is here! Breathless comes out Tuesday, April 30, and so far, it’s my favorite novella in the series. If this is your first time hearing about it, here are the details.
Too many secrets, not enough time.
Nick Merrick is supposed to be the level-headed one. The peacemaker. Since it’s just him and his three hotheaded brothers against the world, that’s a survival tactic.
But now he’s got problems even his brothers can’t help him survive.
His so-called girlfriend, Quinn, is going quick as mercury from daring to crazy. Meanwhile, Quinn’s dancer friend Adam is throwing Nick off balance, forcing him to recognize a truth he’d rather shove back into the dark.
He can feel it—-the atmosphere is sizzling. Danger is on the way. But whatever happens next, Nick is starting to find out that sometimes nothing you do can keep the peace.
You can also check out an excerpt of the novella by going here. (Opens in a new window.)
For the first time, I’m going to have a week long event here on the blog, with author interviews featuring Kelley York, the author of Hushed, and J. H. Trumble, the author of Don’t Let Me Go and Where You Are. Also, I’m featuring a guest post by Victoria Scott, author of The Collector. There will be prizes EVERY DAY, so be sure to come back here each day for a chance to win signed books and swag!
A few FAQs before I get to the contest details:
I don’t have an e-reader! How can I read Breathless?
You don’t need an e-reader! You can read it on your computer screen, on your phone, on your iPad, etc. Pretty much all e-book retailers have a method of reading books without a specific e-book device. If you can read this blog post, you can read Breathless. And the nice thing about novellas is that they’re short enough to read online.
I’ve never read The Elemental Series. Does this book have spoilers?
While this novella takes place chronologically after Spark, it is completely spoiler free for the entire series. If you want to read this one first, go for it. If you have a friend who hasn’t read the series but might enjoy this short story, tell them to give it a whirl.
Is Nick Merrick gay?
You’ll have to read the story and decide for yourself. I’ll admit that at the beginning of the novella, Nick is definitely unsure about what he wants.
And now it’s time for the first contest! To enter, all you need to do is preorder a copy of Breathless from your favorite ebook retailer. Here are some helpful links:
Or any other retailer where you find it! (The legal places, peeps, please.)
