OF TRITON BLOG TOUR: GIVEAWAY and Five Things You Didn't Know About Rachel

Today I have the awesome honor of being a host for the OF TRITON blog tour. I absolutely adore this series and it's author and am excited to share with you a bit of information about one of my favorite characters, Rachel. That woman will always hold a special place in my heart and I cannot wait until you find out some more information about her, but is it really her?  Things that make you go hmmmmmm...... Please check it out, for you will NOT be disappointed.

Also, I have an awesome GIVEAWAY for the paperback of OF POSEIDON and a hardcover of OF TRITON and an OF POSEIDON book mark!!(US and Canada only)

In this sequel to OF POSEIDON, Emma has just learned that her mother is a long-lost Poseidon princess, and now struggles with an identity crisis: As a Half-Breed, she’s a freak in the human world and an abomination in the Syrena realm below. Syrena law states that all Half- Breeds should be put to death.

As if that’s not bad enough, her mother’s reappearance among the Syrena turns the two kingdoms—Poseidon and Triton—against one another. Which leaves Emma with a decision to make: Should she comply with Galen’s request to keep herself safe and just hope for the best? Or should she risk it all and reveal herself—and her Gift—to save a people she’s never known?

Ravenous Reader: This is who I envisioned Rachel to look like


1.) What you do know: Rachel loves wearing high heels.
What you didn’t know: Some of those high heels have razor blades hidden in the soles for those “just in case” moments in life. (Such as being tied to a cement block and thrown into the Gulf of Mexico, for instance.)
2.) What you do know: Rachel is ex-Mafia.
What you didn’t know: Rachel used her family “connections” to assist several governments in discreetly disposing of half a dozen international terrorists.
3.) What you do know: Rachel likes to cook.
What you didn’t know: Rachel swore she would never cook for any man—until she met Galen.
4.) What you do know: Rachel has many aliases.
What you didn’t know: One of them is Leigh Bardugo.
5.) What you do know: Rachel doesn’t have children.
What you didn’t know: Or does she?
