So now that TEMPTED – book 3 in the Eternal Guardians series – is done and turned in, I feel like I can breathe a little and get back to a semi-normal blogging schedule (not that I ever follow a schedule, but you know what I mean). I really REALLY love where TEMPTED ended up. It builds on things that happen in ENTWINED (July 27th, 2010) and is going to be a great lead in to book 4 (which, right now I’m calling UNLEASHED, but when I have an official title, I’ll let you know). Anyway, I’m pretty sure I can share this with you (if not, oh well!), so here’s the cover copy for TEMPTED for those of you who are curious:

DEMETRIUS—He’s the hulking, brooding warrior his fellow Guardians avoid. Too dark. Too damaged. And given his heritage, he knows it’s best to keep everyone at arm’s length.

Isadora is missing. The words pounded through his head like a frantic drumbeat. For her own protection, Demetrius had done all he could to avoid the fragile princess, his soul mate. And now she was gone—kidnapped. To get her back, he’ll have to go to the black place in his soul he’s always shunned. As daemons ravage the human realm and his loyalty to the Guardians is put to the ultimate test, Demetrius realizes that Isadora is stronger than anyone thought. And finally letting her into his heart may be the only way to save them both.

I’ve seen the rough cover art for TEMPTED and I can assure you, it’s awesome. As soon as I can share the real deal, I’ll let you know.

So…what do you think?

    Hi Ina. TEMPTED releases in February 2011, about six months after ENTWINED. Then Book 4 will be an Aug 2011 release, another six months later. I’m really happy the books are coming out fairly close together so readers don’t have to wait a super long time.

    So here’s the ETERNAL GUARDIANS release breakdown (so far):

    MARKED (book 1) – Available Now!
    ENTWINED (book 2) – July 27, 2011
    TEMPTED (book 3) – February 2011
    UNLEASHED (book 4) – Aug 2011
    book 5 (untitled) – Feb 2012
