I’m super excited to be unveiling the cover of Ryann Kerekes’ debut YA novel, The Cirque. This title will be released on March 2, 2013. The cover was designed by KaNaXa.
The more she learns about Gabriel, the scars on his body, the foster homes he grew up in, and his fascination with knives, she knows she should run the other way, but that boy’s like crack, oh so bad for you, yet addicting as hell. When he’s arrested and forced to deal with his past, she has to choose between putting her own life back together and dealing with her parents, or taking a chance on Gabriel, as no one else has.
The Cirque is a contemporary young adult romance.
And because Ryann is so awesome, she’s letting me give YOU an exclusive teaser! So if the blurb and cover didn’t make you want to add this to your TBR, does this help?
I looked down shyly. Why was he asking me that, of all things? And which day exactly was he referring to? There had been many times I’d wanted to kiss him.
“I don’t know. I guess I thought about it.” I swallowed hard.
He brought his hand up to my jaw carefully while he watched my eyes. His thumb caressed the side of my face, and he slid his fingers down my neck and behind my hair. I knew he could feel the way my pulse jumped beneath his fingers and I blushed at his attention. A sense of wonder and curiosity reflected back at me in his eyes.
“And what else did you…think about?” he asked, continuing to send shivers down my back with the way his fingertips brushed my hair back from my neck.
I didn’t want to tell him that I thought about how his lips were perfect and his eyes tortured me and I longed to feel his body pressed against mine.
“Are we done here?” I asked instead.
“Yeah.” His voice was low and so close to my ear I could feel his breath heating my skin.
Ryann Kerekes writes young adult novels with a strong dose of romance. She lives in Minnesota with a super cute husband and two puppies, one of which may be part monkey. When not writing, she enjoys reading, hiking, laughing and day dreaming about kissing scenes. The Cirque is her debut novel.
