Today I have the privilege of helping out with the cover reveal for Katie Hamstead's next release, BRANDED, coming out this month from Soul Mate Publishing. (The cover looks great, right?)
I was lucky to get to read the first fifty pages or so of this when Katie had it on submission, and I'm excited to read the rest! It sounds fast-paced, has deep emotional beginnings, and I can tell it's going to be a heck of a journey for the main character.
And now, a blurb, along with the cover:
Terrorists have invaded Sydney, and Allison King barely escapes her brother’s wedding reception alive. She and her siblings flee, but their parents are killed by firing squad.
Now Ali’s on the run and terrified. While searching for other survivors, she is captured by the General who leads the invasion. He’s smitten by Ali, and when she refuses to submit to his whims, he brands her for death. In a wild act of defiance, she snatches the branding rod and sears the mark onto his face. Marking not only him but also sealing her fate. Ali manages to escape and flees into the bush once more where she finds a group in hiding. Even with the scars left by the General, Ali learns to love and falls in love with the young man who found her—Damien Rogers.
But the General is hunting her. When he discovers their location, and finds her with another man—Damien—his wrath is kindled and his obsession is inflamed. Ali must put herself on the line or the General could kill her family, those who help her, and most significantly, the man she loves.
