BOOK BLURB:
I’m free. Fucking free!

I’m in college with my best friends and far, far from home!

With my Scheuermann’s disease as the excuse, my father kept me locked up at home all through high school. Here in Deepsilver, I can finally be me, Pandora, so—

Why the hell should I hold back?

They accept our fake IDs at Smother, our local haunt. I’m the life of the party, everyone loves me—hell, I could get away with murder in this place! Drunk off my ass, I dance on the bar, and—

I’m on top of the world!

I need to get my shit together, though. If I don’t pull off good grades, my father won’t pay my tuition. There’s no way I’m moving back into his “fortress.”

At the bar, I set my eyes on a gorgeous stranger. My plans don’t involve him long term; one night should be enough. But Dominic is more than I bargained for. God, I’m so drawn to this man. My skin hums at his touch because—

He expels the shadows of my past and replaces my pain with desire.

Perfect Dominic. Beautiful, graduating, soon-to-move-on-with-his-life Dominic.

I’m a wild child. A hot mess. Not grownup and focused like him. He’s addictive, and I am weak, but—screw this; I can wean myself off him! With the right antidote—

Addictions can be broken.

Buy the Book!
  

GUEST POST

Why I write in this genre


Hi there!

My name is Sunniva Dee, and I write New Adult romance… for a reason. 
It might have started with my first real, serious crush on a boy in first grade of elementary school—not joking—because ever since, I’ve seen the world through the rosy filter of romance. If a movie doesn’t have at least a tiny bit of love in it, I tend to get bored, and the days I choose to read books with no romance whatsoever, are sad, sad days. 

As everyone, I am many people. Now, I am an adult set in my ways, with a job and a house and children and pets. And yet my personality consists of a multitude of traits. What I adore playing with in my books, is what I—we—were in college. Silly and adorable, we acted out our freedom and made mistakes at breakneck speed. Sometimes we stumbled through our dramas and our emotions, while at other times, we were hell bent on the directions we were taking, focusing on our future careers and making good choices.


In hindsight, my college years were as forming for me as they are for the characters in my novels. My friends, my boyfriends, the intense heartbreak, the angst, the bliss, and the freedom—all of it is ingrained forever in my heart and mind, an eternal inspiration for new characters, plotlines, and books. 


This is why New Adult, this new genre, is such a perfect fit for me. With all of its subgenres, it’s got room for everything. Like Paranormal, the way I write it in SHATTERING HALOS (released February 22nd 2014) and STARGAZER, to be released November 21st, or the straight, genuine, back-to-the roots style I use in PANDORA WILD CHILD, and in the upcoming LEON’S WAY, to be published, hopefully in December.


I have a new-releases-only newsletter that goes out to all subscribers before I announce my releases anywhere else. If you want a reminder of my next book, I usually publish 2-3 a year, you can sign up here: http://bit.ly/sunnivasreleases

Craves the Angst: thank you so much for having me! It’s been a pleasure chatting with you and your followers!


xoxo

About the Author...

I write New Adult fiction with a paranormal twist and don’t shy away from romance and heart-wrenching passion when necessary.

I moved from Norway to the United States in 2001, and the first awesome five years I spent in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles. Then I read “The Book,” aka Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, which spurred my husband and me to move cross country to beautiful Savannah, Georgia.

I’m currently on my seventh year in the Deep South, where I enjoy the heat and the humidity. Besides writing, I spend my time with our “petting zoo” as in an opinionated parrot, a herd of cats that are experts on keyboard shortcuts, and puppies that…uh, bark.

I hold a Master’s degree in languages, with concentrations within literature and linguistics. I taught at college level for a decade before settling in as a graduate adviser at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Writing is my passion, my joy, and my addiction. When I’m not writing, I read.
Shattering Halos is my debut novel, and its standalone sequel, Stargazer, is due out later this year.
