You guys all know how much I love Urban Fantasy, right? More than any other genre. More than cookies and chocolate milk. More, even, than blueberry muffins. But I constantly fear for the genre; most of the good old series are losing their steam, and there aren't enough new ones to make up for it. It is because of this that I appreciate Cecy Robson's The Weird Girls series more than I can put into words. The first book was wonderfully imaginative and original (my review) and I just know the second book will be, too. I'm delighted to share this gorgeous cover with you today.

Title: A Cursed Embrace
Series: The Weird Girls, #2
Release date: July 2nd 2013
Paperback, 368 pages
Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other twentysomething girls—with one tiny exception: They are the products of a curse that backfired and gave each of them unique powers that made them, well, a little weird.…
After Celia Wird and her sisters help master vampire Misha save his family, their powers are exposed to the supernatural community of the Lake Tahoe region. But fame comes at a price, and being “weird” isn’t always welcome.
To make matters worse, Celia desires the love of Alpha werewolf Aric, but his pack is bent on destroying their relationship to preserve his pureblood status. And once weres start turning up dead—with evidence pointing to the vampires—she must face the prospect of losing Aric forever. But the chaos only makes a new threat. An evil known as the Tribe has risen—and their sights are set on Celia and her sisters.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Cecy (pronounced Sessy) Robson is an author with Penguin's SIGNET ECLIPSE. She attributes her passion for story-telling back to the rough New Jersey neighborhood she was raised in. As a child, she was rarely allowed to leave the safety of her house and passed her time fantasizing about flying, fairies, and things that go bump in the night. Her dad unwittingly encouraged Cecy's creativity by kissing her goodnight wearing vampire fangs. Gifted and cursed with an overactive imagination, she began writing her Urban Fantasy Romance Series, Weird Girls, in May 2009. THE WEIRD GIRLS: A Novella and SEALED WITH A CURSE are now available. The second novel in The Weird Girls Series, A CURSED EMBRACE, releases July 2, 2013.
FIll out the Rafflecopter for a chance to win a signed copy of SEALED WITH A CURSE. (I'm not sure I'm ready to share Aric, but it doesn't seem like I have a choice.)
