Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop: Win a copy of Call of the Sea #PNR #CalloftheSea


Welcome to my little corner of the world wide web. Let me start by thanking you for deciding to give my link a click. I’m happy to have you here and just as happy summer is almost here!! Memorial Day Weekend is right around the corner — one of my favorites of the year. Picnics, BBQs, camping, the un-official start to summer. Love it all!

As a way to kick off the summer season and celebrate the impending release of my debut novel (on June 21, 2012) I decided for my part in the giveaway hop, I’m would offer up an eBook copy (your choice of .epub .mobi or pdf)  of my debut novel, CALL OF THE SEA. Win it before you can buy it, as they say.  🙂

Back of the Book:

There is no denying the call of the sea.

Elysandra Winters has always yearned for a life of adventure on the rolling seas and is willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill her dream. When her Privateer father continually refuses to allow his only daughter to sail, Ellie defies him, disguises herself as a boy, and goes in search of a captain who will give her a chance to prove her worth.

Thanks to the cursed selkie blood coursing through his veins, Daniel O’Rourke needs the sea to survive. After giving up on his humanity and spending three years in seal form, he decides to give his human side another chance. Daniel goes in search of a job and a sense of normalcy, earning himself a position aboard Captain Winter’s ship, The Siren’s Call. However, his new captain’s first assignment has nothing at all to do with sailing, and everything to do with his headstrong young daughter.

Years later, when the leader of a band of bloodthirsty pirates murders Captain Winters, Daniel and Elysandra’s lives come crashing back together with the force of a hurricane. Both experts in deception, they must find a way to trust each other in order to quell the raging storm between them or have any hope of hunting down the captain’s killer.

Six Sentence Sunday: That Blissful Moment Before The First Kiss #sixsunday #writing

Welcome back and thanks for chosing to stop by for your Six Sentence Sunday fix. I always love having visitors. 🙂

Since I received my copyright in the mail from the Library of Congress, I decided to include six sentences from my soon to be released debut novel, CALL OF THE SEA.

Rather than set the scene on this one, I think I will let the post speak for itself. 🙂 Enjoy!

Her calloused fingertip traced his lower lip and her eyes filled with wonder.

Daniel’s hands surrounded her waist before he realized he’d moved. Her scent, a heady mix of lilac and peppermint spice, wafted up to him. His desire surged. “Ellie?”

The question hung in the air between them for endless seconds.

Welp, that got my engine running this morning. How about you? Comments always welcome. Be sure to add CALL OF THE SEA to your Goodreads TBR pile. You can find it here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13423867-call-of-the-sea

Cover Reveal: Call of the Sea, by Rebecca Hart (That’s me!) #CotS #coverlove

I cannot believe the day has FINALLY arrived. It has been near torture waiting to share the cover art for my debut novel with you all. But, time marches on, no matter how slowly, and the 20th of February has arrived. YAY!

Ladies and Gents — the cover for my novel, due out in June 2012 from Inkspell Publishing.

From the Back Cover:

There is no denying the call of the sea.

 Elysandra Winters has always yearned for a life of adventure on the rolling seas and is willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill her dream. When her Privateer father continually refuses to allow his only daughter to sail, Ellie defies him, disguises herself as a boy, and goes in search of a captain who will give her a chance to prove her worth.

Thanks to the cursed selkie blood coursing through his veins, Daniel O’Rourke needs the sea to survive. After giving up on his humanity and spending three years in seal form, he decides to give his human side another chance. Daniel goes in search of a job and a sense of normalcy, earning himself a position aboard Captain Winter’s ship, The Surf Runner. However, his new captain’s first assignment has nothing at all to do with sailing, and everything to do with his headstrong young daughter.

Years later, when the leader of a band of bloodthirsty pirates murders Captain Winters, Daniel and Elysandra’s lives come crashing back together with the force of a hurricane. Both experts in deception, they must find a way to trust each other if they are to have any hope of hunting down the captain’s killer.

I absolutely LOVE it. The girl fits Ellie so perfectly, and the designer, Naj also managed to give me a little Daniel (selkie) out in the ocean by the beautiful ship.

Be sure to add the novel to your Goodreads To-Read list.

What do you all think? Would love to hear your thoughts.

Six Sentence Sunday: The Curse of the Awkward Silence #sixsunday

Thanks for stopping by for another installment of Six Sentence Sunday. This week’s post is special for me, as the cover reveal for my debut novel is tomorrow. (A Hearty SQUEE for that)

In honor of the unveiling of my paranormal romance, this week’s six sentences comes from the soon to be available (Inkspell Publishing, June 2012), CALL OF THE SEA.

Without waiting for an answer, she[Ellie] headed down the dirt road, keeping her gaze focused on the path ahead and as far from the distracting Daniel as possible.

On a good day, the trek to Newquay was long. The trip with Daniel that morning was pure torture. Neither spoke a word, the silence between them stretching into an impenetrable chasm. Each time Ellie considered breeching it, her thoughts fled, palms got sweaty, and her ears burned. She’d already made enough of a fool of herself on the beach, she saw no reason to add to the humiliation.

Hope you enjoyed the snipit. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments, and click the banner at the top of this post to visit with the other participant sites.

Thanks again, my friends, and Happy Sunday!
