The Crescendo Cover Reveal and Giveaway!

Hello Muses and Fallen Friends,

I'm super excited to be bringing you today's cover reveal and giveaway! Why? Well, it isn't only because this is the reveal of the sequel to the Prelude, my New Adult Contemporary Romance. But this is also the book most requested by my readers. We live and read during a time when authors are getting beaten down for writing sequels. So imagine my surprise when my readers started leaving reviews and ratings that were all across the board.

Why did this happen? Well, because people wanted more Alek and Erin and Luca and Adriana. Even Nikolai struck a chord with people. I don't write about rock stars. I do, however, love those books. My musical characters are just as flawed, just as emotionally bent so many others, though. "Bad boys in pretty little packages" as one reviewer put it. I'll take that description as a compliment. LoL.

Alek and Erin struck a magical note with people, that place all authors hope to reach when we release our babies into the world. This is a GOOD thing. I did not set out to write a trilogy. There's no hair-pulling cliffhanger in the Prelude. I'll be honest here. As I began writing the Crescendo, I wasn't sure where to start. It didn't take long for me to figure it out. As usual, my readers never let me down. I used their advice as my guide. And soon, the bones for this novel were formed. More Alek and Erin is coming your way. Readers are happy. I have a New York Times bestselling duo of editors on my team now. Life is good. :D

Thank you so much for making the Prelude an International Bestseller. I have a loyal group of readers, fans, and people who've become good friends. Between both facebook fan pages, I now have almost 20,000 likes from you all. I am humbled and amazed. Thank you for helping me to make my dreams come true.

And now, I'm proud to give you THE CRESCENDO!

He taught her how to walk outside the line. She taught him how to leave the past behind. In the end, fate brought them both together.

Six months ago, Erin Angelo was hired by Alek Dostov, the charismatic Maestro who hired her design firm, the same man who healed the wounds of her tragic past.

In the highly anticipated, reader requested sequel to THE PRELUDE, Alek and Erin are preparing to embrace their new life and love for music while nurturing Erin’s blossoming singing career. But when a mysterious figure from Erin’s past walks back into her life, Alek and Erin’s belief that their love will conquer everything is put to the test. As Alek continues to struggle with the ghosts of his past and recent family troubles, Erin finds a way to reconnect with her fiancée. The couple set out on a tour of Italy, taking Alek’s music group to the next level.

But Alek’s mother, Katerina, has other plans in mind. She orders the tour manager to go along with them. Now, they will face new challenges while dealing with the pressures of their careers.

Passion, excitement, adventure, danger, and a Maestro with more swagger than a rock star. THE CRESCENDO lifts you up to a high you won’t soon forget.

A great story line and witty banter.

Chrystina Williams said...

I love romance because it is a fantastic escape from life :) The happy endings are what I keep going back for, and although I like to see a couple struggle, I want to see them beat all odds in the end. So I'd like to see more struggle, but with that all important HEA.

I would love the paranormal romance genre to get rid of the emo vamps.

dv8 said...

I like the thrill of blossoming desire.

Omima said...

I'd like to see more tragic endings in romance novels.

Are UK residents eligible to win the Amazon dollars?

KaSonndra Leigh said...

Especially when you get to watch it grow right? :-) Thanks for stopping by Amy.

KaSonndra Leigh said...

What's a romance without an HEA right?

KaSonndra Leigh said...

It's kind of like a fantasy in a way.

KaSonndra Leigh said...

So important, the ending is. Although I have read a few romance novels lately where the heroine doesn't get they guy and vice versa, but it still worked.

KaSonndra Leigh said...

See that's why I feel like romance and fantasy have so much in common. Against all odds love will find a way. **sighs**

KaSonndra Leigh said...

Thanks for stopping by Donna

KaSonndra Leigh said...

Oh yeah. I truly believe that love stories, romance, and the hot couples in these books should have at least one really smokin' hot love scene.

KaSonndra Leigh said...

A must have!

It's ALL about the HEA!
