That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
It's not an outrageous book cover. No nude bodies. No hard bodies at all *cue rolling of my eyes as I was actually seeking a hard six pack tapering to a hmmm...wrapped up with a curvaceous bombshell with a generous set of whoa... (quickly pretending the bombshell was me)* This book cover caught my eye for it's simplicity and because it features my favorite color as the sands of time: purple. YAY for purple!
Ahem...I said YAY for purple everyone! *cue staged applause*
Now that I've made all the fuss, here it is, in all it's plain glory.
MUNDAHLIA is as follows: When our era ends, theirs begins.
Perfect. Just perfect. Now you go and make me have to find out more because this is such a tease. Now I want to know whose era is ending? Whose era will begin? I NEED MORE!
Ahem, sorry...calming down now.
So, on to the much longer description:
Rini thought going to live with her cousins in the city of Austin, Texas while her parents rekindled their marriage on a four month long cruise, was a step in the right direction. When she makes a new quirky friend, and stumbles upon a handsome nude young man named Jett in the enveloping forest surrounding her cabin, she thought she was only moving forward. Well, she was wrong.
Jett and his clan appear human, just like anyone else. But take a closer look, and you will see that they are indeed Mundahlians. Legendary hybrid beings with both human and animal qualities that have been kept a heavily guarded secret throughout time—until now. They are taking refuge in our world, fleeing from their hidden homeland of Mundahlia and its aging power-hungry King, who has set up a game between his many children. Whoever can bring them back to their world so they can be tried and executed shall receive the crown once he passes.
Upon finding their hide out, Bane, one of the King's sons, and on a hunt to win the crown, sees an opportunity to shatter the blossoming relationship, lure the family back to Mundahlia, and frame Rini for the murder of a Mundahlian—thus, breaking the pact signed long ago with the humans, and reigniting an ancient war for the majority of land and control. A triple deed that will surely earn him the power he craves.
In the wake of his devious acts, which leaves Rini heart-broken and injured, Bane whisks her away to Mundahlia to be convicted of the crime he had forged. Jett, with help from his family and friends, sets out to stop the trial and rescue Rini before it is too late.
Will they make it in time?
Or will a new era begin.
A Mundahlian Era.
Wow...okay, got a lot happening here. I see the romance, the conflict and the danger. Of course there's a power hungry someone who just has to take advantage of the meek. *grrr*
So back to where this all began. Choosing this book as my Smashwords find for the week wasn't my fault. Blame it on the purple :-)
