How gorgeous is that cover?
Convinced she’s a part of the witness protection program, sixteen-year-old Jewel Rose is shuffled around the globe with her family like a pack of traveling gypsies. After arriving at lucky home twenty-seven, she stumbles upon a mysterious boy with magical powers claiming to be her guardian . . . and warning of imminent danger. Despite the obvious sparks between them, Jewel discovers a relationship is forbidden, and the more she learns about dark, brooding Roman, she begins to question who she can even believe—the family who raised her, or the supposed sworn protector who claims they've been lying to her all along.
As she struggles to uncover who her family has really been running from, she is forced to hide her birthmark that reveals who she is. With new realities surfacing, unexplained powers appearing, and two tempting boys vying for her heart, Jewel battles to learn who she can trust in an ever growing sea of lies, hoping she’ll make it through her seventeenth birthday alive.
Living in the witness protection program didn't make me feel so much protected as it made me feel cursed. Yeah, that makes me want to read this like right now!
Shannon's favorite line:
Hard to pick just one, but here's one I definitely like: "A spark ignited inside my body spreading warmth throughout, and I closed my eyes a moment, willing every contour of his face and luscious lips to be implanted in my mind forever... just in case." Wow! Awesome!
If you could be any character from the story, who would you be?
I'd like to be Jewel. I mean, there are some crazy times that she goes through that I'd like to fast forward on past, LOL, but I like the cool things that happen to her so much that I choose her.
Where can we purchase a copy of Spectral?
Where can readers find you on the web?
Just for fun: Jewel discovers her life has been a lie, so my question to you is what would you do if you found out nothing in your world was what you thought it was?
