A Cursed Embrace Cover Reveal + Giveaway (INT)


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
Publisher: Signet
Paperback, 368 pages
Pre-order: The Book Depository
                  Amazon

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.

  3. Cecy Robson's The Weird Girls series already grabbed my attention with beautiful cover. I don't know how I missed your review, but I'm glad to hear it's good. I may give it a chance. It's good to come across new uf series, the old ones are so long, I have hard time starting them. :)

  6. I like Urban Fantasy and Paranormal but I can't seem to read them more then I do. But if there's romance, count me in! These books sound great and the covers are pretty cool too.
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  8. Oooooo this series sounds AWESOME Maja!!! Both covers are really pretty, love the flourishes on the title font:) I have to say I'm definitely looking forward to meeting Aric, I'm always in the mood for an alpha werewolf:)

  9. Whhaaattt...?? You like Urban Fantasy?? hahaha... Maja, you're the Queen of UF. :P And if you say this is a fantastic series then this definitely needs to go on my list. Love that new cover too!

  10. I love that both covers have the same "theme". I hate it when they change covers after one or two books in a series. I've heard about it before and added it to my TBR list but didn't find the time to read it yet. Vampires and werewolves, I'll never get bored reading about them! Thank you for the international giveaway :)

  11. I totally agree with you about UF. I haven't read that many but I just know of a handful and the one series that I keep up with is, in fact, losing their steam.

    But I'm glad Cecy appears now and I've read great things about this series, with covers to die for! The first one is my favorite but this one is gorgeous too, the colors are so perfect.

    Fingers crossed, I'm really looking forward to this new series :)

  15. Totally love the new cover! Plan on reading this book very soon but signed copies are always cherished!

  16. YES! Thanks so much for the giveaway. I also love UF and I've had that first book on my wishlist for a while now. Can't wait to dive into this series! Love the new cover too!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the covers for these series! Gosh, I really need to pick up Book 1, don't I? Thanks for the reminder, Maja - I'll be bumping it up my TBR at once! :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. I know how much you enjoyed the first one and it does sound like a really great series, even if UF isn't my top genre. I'm glad you enjoy UF so much and still find some faith in new books because sometimes genres are in fear of becoming too repetitive.

    Stunning cover with the colours around the girl who looks rather menacing. Thanks for the giveaway! :-)

  19. Ooh I really like it! I actually think I prefer this cover to the first book's cover. Also... why can I never pull off that facial expression? ;)

    Thanks for sharing, Maja!

  20. I really love this cover! I remember reading lots of good things about the first book and I really do love UF as well! I have a lot of catching up to do, but at least this is one series that there aren't 17 books to read first so it's not so daunting. Definitely going to give them a try!

  25. Lol! The first thing I thought was, dude check out her abs! I'd kill for abs like that!

    ReplyDelete
  26. She looks so hot it makes me jealous - I wish I looked like her! That's one of my favorite things about UF books, there is almost always a hot guy or girl on the cover.

    ReplyDelete
  27. One of the many reasons I love coming to your blog is you keep introducing me to amazing new books I probably would have never heard about otherwise. This series sounds AWESOME! Love the sexy but tough feel to these covers too. I can't wait to meet Aric! I always have room for another werewolf love interest in my TBR pile. :-)

  33. The 'first time in print' circle thing is VERY strange.
    Other than that, though, I do like the cover- she looks like a badass.

  35. I love this cover!! Like it even more than the first one. I so enjoy good UF and Cecy's books, based on every single review of and blog post about them that I've read, certainly fit the bill! And, yes, I have been stalking this book on pretty much every blog it's visited, so I was thrilled to see you were covering this too, since I have just recently started following you :) I have the novella but I want to wait to read it until I have book 1 in my grubby hands because I know I'm going to want to read it right away! Thanks for featuring the cover reveal and offering the giveaway, And I'm so glad to hear that you loved Sealed with a Curse!
