Cover Reveal for Nicola Haken’s Take My Hand + contest reminder!

*Snoopy Dance* I am helping with two cover reveals today! I’m like a kid in a candy store… So excited I can’t keep still!

I adore covers… A good one can make me pick up an unknown author. A bad cover can slow me down from buying the book.

Here is Nicola Haken’s cover for her upcoming New Adult story, Take My Hand. I am a fan of purple and green and I love when my guy reaches for my hand… so I connected with this cover. *sigh* Then the synopsis. 😉 Check out the pretty and add it to your TBR list.

Take My Hand

Author: Nicola Haken

Expected Release Date: October 2013

Series: (Take My Hand #1)

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Twenty-four year old Dexter Michaels has arrived in the UK for a fresh start – leaving everything and everyone he knows behind in the states. Determined to put right some of the wrongs he’ll never be able to forgive himself for making and make his Aunt Sarah – the only person left who still believes in him – proud, he lands in London with the intention of working hard, getting his degree and keeping himself to himself. He can’t destroy anybody else that way…

His heart and his body have other ideas however when he finds himself sitting next to nineteen year old Emily Barton in his Psychology class. Moving down south to find her own New Life, Emily is shy, smart and beautiful – everything Dexter knows he should stay away from… everything he knows would be too easy for him to break.

But she makes him feel things he’d forgotten even existed. She makes him laugh, smile, care… forget. Without her trying, and without him realizing, Emily has wound her way into the one place he swore to keep locked away forever – his heart. But can she stay there when she discovers the dark past he’s so determined to keep hidden from her? Or will he destroy her too, just like he always expected?

(Not recommended for younger readers due to language, drug/alcohol abuse and sexual content)

I live in Rochdale, England with my wonderful family. I have two novels under my belt (Inevitable and Saving Amy) and have just finished writing Take My Hand – book 1 in a 3 part series – which will be released in October.

When I’m not playing with my imaginary friends I can usually be found looking after my four adorable (sometimes!) children (five if you include the dog, six if you include the hubby!) or studying towards my English Literature degree.

All in all I’m just an ordinary mum with an addiction to reading about hot book guys, writing about hot book guys and Pepsi Max!
