Title: Rivers Author: Jennifer Rae Gravely Series: Orders of the Sky #2 Genre: New Adult Cover Reveal Publisher: Blue Tulip PublishingI’ve always been fascinated by ghosts. They’re simply lost souls looking for the conclusion to their story. After years of chasing the phantom of Stone into the night, I’ve sought to live and love again in the new chapter of my life. I’m not the naïve girl I once was. I know what I want, what I need. But like the tortured spirits wandering the earth, can I find the happy ending I crave or will the apparitions of the past destroy any chance of everlasting bliss? “How’ve you been since our last meeting?” “You mean our first.” I tilted my head. “That too.” He displayed the teeth of a tiger. “I hope you’ll believe me when I say I’ve wanted to see you again. I was waiting for the right time.” He paused, a wild look in his eyes. “And it looks like I found it. You look fabulous. Can we pick up where we left off?” “Where was that?” His arms encircled my waist and his lips found mine. The tides of emotion roared like the ocean in my ears. I closed my eyes and allowed the waves to carry me away. Swaying on my feet, it was good that when he broke the embrace he still held me by the shoulders or I would’ve collapsed. “Now, you offered me food,” he said. “Can I take you up on that? I really did miss dinner traveling.” “Sure,” I said, out of breath from drowning. The night passed like a swiftly flowing river.
