Coming up blood roses!


So much good news today! So much to celebrate (if you're joining me on Friday for Vikki's weekly hop)


First! Here's a beautiful, but deadly, cover reveal! Nicole Zoltack's BLOODLUST, a NA epic fantasy romance.


In a world torn by prejudice and hatred, six races struggled for supremacy.


Desperation…
Barbarian-Princess Ivy is unwilling to allow her father to provoke the other races into war and forms an unlikely alliance with Lukor the goliath to save her people from utter destruction.

Betrayal…
Unbeknownst to her, Lukor blames the barbarians for murdering his sister and plans on sabotaging her goal.

Bloodlust…
Almost despite each other, they grow to respect each other on their journey to decode secret messages from the trolls. But nothing Ivy can do will prevent the war as her father is blinded by Bloodlust and incites it himself. Not even killing him and becoming Barbaroness can stop the tide. And when Bloodlust claims Ivy, forcing her to kill everyone in her path, she must make a choice to destroy even Lukor, who she may have started to fall for and him in return.

It comes out Feb 24th! Add it on Goodreads!

Congratulations on winning, and good luck with all the upcoming conference events. I wonder if the unofficial state flower of West Virginia is still the satellite dish, as it was when I was there in '93.
