Young Adult Giveaway Hop - Enter for a chance to win a copy of Syrie and Ryan James' new book, "Forbidden"

This Giveaway is now closed!  Thanks for entering!

I have been dipping my toes into the Young Adult novel waters, and was so pleased to find that Kathy at "I Am A Reader Not A Writer" was sponsoring a "Young Adult Giveaway Hop" this month! For my giveaway, I am offering a copy of Syrie James and Ryan James' new novel, "Forbidden."

About The Book:  (watch for my review coming soon!)

She should not exist.

He should not love her.

Claire Brennan has been attending Emerson Academy for two years now (the longest she and her mom have remained anywhere) and she’s desperate to stay put for the rest of high school. So there’s no way she’s going to tell her mom about the psychic visions she’s been having or the creepy warnings that she’s in danger.

Alec MacKenzie is fed up with his duties to watch and, when necessary, eliminate the descendants of his angelic forefathers. He chose Emerson as the ideal hiding place where he could be normal for once. He hadn’t factored Claire into his plans.

Their love is forbidden, going against everything Alec has been taught to believe. But when the reason behind Claire’s unusual powers is revealed and the threat to her life becomes clear, how far will Alec go to protect her?

 About The Authors:

 Syrie James loves paranormal romance and all things nineteenth century. She is also the bestselling author of four critically acclaimed novels: Nocturne; Dracula, My Love; The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen (Best First Novel 2008, Library Journal); and The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte (2011 Audie Romance Award; Great Group Read, Women’s National Book Association). The translation rights for Syrie’s books have been sold in sixteen languages. Syrie is also a screenwriter and a member of the Writers Guild of America and the RWA, and a life member of the Jane Austen Society of North America.

Aside from being Syrie’s firstborn, Ryan M. James has co­written two screenplays, directed an independent feature, and created the machinima webseries A Clone Apart. By day he works as an editor for the video game industry in Santa Monica, most recently on Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (Game of the Year 2009) and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Under cover of night, he conjures stories for print, screen, and web as a member of the Writers Guild of America. He and his wife live in Los Angeles about a stone’s throw away from Syrie
