Children's Book Week, Day 3: New YA paranormal romance series by Latina author Alisa Valdes


Children's Book Week continues with Alisa Valdes...

Bestselling author Alisa Valdes Rodriguez is best known for her women's fiction. Now she's also dabbling into the young adult market with this her new paranormal romance series, The Kindred. The first book, Temptation, hit the shelves on April 24th. I read the first three chapters free on Kindle and I have to say, the story is quite engrossing. I plan to download the complete book soon. 

Let's support this talented Latina author! Be sure to check out her website and blog and read an excerpt of her newest novel, Temptation

Book description:

His touch was electric.
His eyes were magnetic.
His lips were a temptation. . . .
But was he real?
Shane is near death after crashing her car on a long stretch of empty highway in rural New Mexico when she is miraculously saved by a mysterious young man who walks out of nowhere. She feels an instant energy between them, both a warmth that fills her soul and a tingle that makes her shiver. But who, or what, is he? For the first time in her life, she believes in the term "soul mates"—Travis is her destiny, and she is his. But she soon discovers that Travis is dead and strict rules govern kindred spirits of different dimensions. Even a kiss could destroy both their souls. And while Travis is almost impossible to resist, temptation proves to be the kindest enemy they encounter.
In this part romance, part supernatural thriller, true love discovers it may not be able to surpass all—especially the power of pure evil.
