Special thanks to Xpresso Tours for organizing this cover reveal!


Francesca Sabatini came to America to take in the sights, celebrate her high school graduation, and have fun wasting time before college starts in the fall.

That’s not what happens.

Fresh off the plane and barely on American soil more than a handful of minutes, Francesca’s face is recognized by TSA scanners to be a match for a child who was kidnapped twelve years ago.

Brody Mason remembers the day Fiona Sullivan went missing during a family vacation in Italy and it’s haunted him his whole life. So when Francesca shows up at the Sullivan farm down the road, he’s compelled to figure out if this girl really is his long lost friend.

But Francesca knows she’s not Fiona Sullivan. She knows exactly who she is. At least she thinks she knows – until Brody Mason relentlessly pursues her and she begins to have feelings for him. Maybe being Fiona isn’t so bad?

Reality becomes blurred, secrets are revealed, and life will never be the same when the final questions are answered: Is she Francesca or Fiona? And where does she really belong?

        “You OK?” Brody asks.
I nod as I remember to inhale. “Yeah, but I’m not sure what to do with you now that you’re here.”
He grins so wide I have to laugh. His hand comes up to my mouth and covers my lips as he bends down to whisper in my ear. “Shhh, quiet now, you’re gonna get me busted.”
And then he takes my hand and leads me over to the bed, because that’s the only place in the room to sit, besides the desk chair, and he doesn’t look interested in sitting in that old wooden thing and neither am I. I figure if you invite a boy into your room in the middle of the night, you should at the very least let him sit next to you.
He pulls me to the bed and looks at my shorts and t-shirt. “Mmmm, I like this,” he says running the hem of my shirt between his thumb and forefinger.
Oh, God.
“You’re nervous?” he asks. “You want me to leave, Fiona? I won’t stay if I’m making you nervous.”
“No,” I say quickly. “That’s not it. I mean, yes, I’m nervous, remember? No time alone with boys of any kind. This is new territory for me.”
“Well,” he says, lying back on the bed a little and then pulling me towards him. “I’d just like to say how sweet I think it is that you’ve been saving yourself for me all these years. “
I laugh again.
“I mean, really. Pining over me since you were six, it’s just so damn sweet.”
“Is this how you get lucky with all your girlfriends?”
“Yeah, it is,” he says seriously. Then he takes my hand and squeezes it. “But you’re not about getting lucky, Fiona. I’m not even going to kiss you tonight, let alone try for a home run.”

New Adult Addiction


J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).

She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.

    A wicked sense of humor and willingness to be sensitive when necessary and an alpha male when required. . . :-)

    There’s a lot of things that can make a hero sexy…a lot of it has to do with how he treats the girl.
