*Trumpet music!!* COVER REVEAL TIME!! 

Isn’t it beautiful?! After 12 long months of hard work, I’m so excited to bring you the official cover of “Bound” (The Guardians, #1) So many people have been… incredible – and by that I mean insanely calm and supportive – of me and this whole process. I can’t wait to let readers have at it on the 23rd of January, 2014 and to launch in person on the 25th of January here in Brisbane, Australia!

‘No good deed ever goes unpunished, Mellea…’

Mellea Wendorn hasn’t exactly had a normal life. Misfortune seems to follow her, and her family, wherever she goes. 
However, when Mellea stops to assist a mysterious young man suddenly her prior hardships seem trivial.

His name is Leo. He is a Successor, a child of the Guardians of Selestia. 

He is royalty. 
He is handsome. 
And he wants Mellea completely to himself. 

Unable to escape the Guardian’s laws, Mellea must learn the ways of the royals. She is convinced her life can’t get much worse. But when a timeworn Guardian enemy arises from the shadows, Mellea must make a choice that will change her destiny forever.
