Jacey thinks her life is worthless, when she finds herself in a psychiatric hospital after a failed attempt to end her life; her wounds miraculously healed. Devin, who claims to kill on touch, is also there. When Michael arrives, bearing telekinetic powers, he insists the government, and an even darker, more powerful force, wants them dead.

In a desperate attempt to escape for their lives, the three teens find they must confront an even greater adversary, themselves – and with a Prophesy forced upon them, they must find a way to accept their fate, or rebel together, as one.

Today we have a chance to peak at Rachel Deagan’s soon-to-be-released cover for The Prophesy! I love the look and feel of this cover, don’t you? Leave Rachel a little love in the comments to let her know what you think. 🙂

Rachel grew up in a small town Massachusetts where she most of her time writing about strange paranormal creatures instead of paying attention in class. She has always been considered the ‘dreamy’ one with her head in the clouds. She now lives in Nevada with her two sons, a cat and a rat named Sam.

Marty Green has two loves in life: horses and basketball. But suffering a stroke during his first college game throws a wrench in his plans. After months spent in the hospital, recuperating under the zealous care of his overprotective parents, Marty realizes he needs to be on his own, so when he’s offered a job at a ranch owned by his doctor’s good friend, he takes it.

When veterinary assistant Quinn Knepper sees Marty for the first time, his heart nearly stops. He’s smitten, and Marty appears interested though shy. There are just two problems: Quinn’s father wants him to hide his sexuality from the world, and Marty’s Wyoming Senator father is a homophobe with no idea his son is gay—which Quinn learns when the senator proposes an amendment banning gay marriage.

Dealing with two unsupportive families is a heavy burden, but Quinn vows to make it work. Unfortunately, that may mean putting his life on hold while Marty overcomes his emotional isolation—unless, of course, Marty sacrifices his happiness to his father’s political ambition and ends the relationship before it gets started.

What happens when a Tarot reader meets a skeptical cowboy? A wild ride

Susan Pell escaped from a nasty relationship and found peace living alone (if you don’t count the two match-making ghosts who are the original owners). Just when she decides to enter the dating pool again, in walks Max Lancaster, a sexy cowboy who happens to be her neighbor. Max has been given a free reading in the hopes that Susan will be able to predict his future. The attraction between them is instant, but his obvious disgust with her profession makes Susan want to have her way with him then strangle him for being such a close-minded fool. No matter that the ghosts say he’s the one, Susan’s not buying it. Avoiding him doesn’t help, nor does dating someone else. When Susan vows to forget him, fate (with a little help from the ghosts) take matters into their own hands.

Susan loved how the orchards changed color in the fall from green to yellow to orange and red. And, in the spring, they came alive again, bursting with color: snowy white and different shades of pink. The peace and quiet gave her time to think, heal, regroup. It took time to grow accustomed to the quiet and vast open space. Her nearest neighbor was a good half-mile away. Coming from five years in Los Angeles where the biggest lot in her part of town was less than a quarter acre and the quietest time of the day could never rival this all encompassing silence, it took a lot of adjusting. But, it certainly beat Los Angeles. How she had managed to live there for five years without going crazy, she would never know. Maybe it was because of Don.

An eagle’s cry pierced the air. Susan sighed. Best not to think of Don. That part of her life was over and done with, and it wouldn’t do any good to replay it in her mind.

The stained glass, butterfly wind chimes hanging in her living room tinkled in the stillness of the room. It was the ghosts again, admonishing her to move on and forget about the past, but how could she? He’d been every thing she’d thought she’d ever wanted in life. He was handsome, smart, had a great sense of humor and was great in bed. What woman wouldn’t want that? "Yeah, but you weren’t the only one he slept with," whispered a voice in her mind.

Who the hell are you and what do you mean attacking me in my territory? I would suggest you be very careful with your answer if you plan to still be in existence this time tomorrow.” I could hear the seething blood rage in my voice again but couldn’t seem to care right then. He was attacking us, trying to take me away from Declán! Somewhere in the deepest recesses of my mind I noted his eyes yet that detail only made this all the more confusing.

You’re feeding on a Guardian! Are you insane?” The stranger’s voice was seething with nearly as much venom as mine for some strange reason. Most that know Declán was a Guardian – a natural born vampire hunter – also referred to him as my human mate . . . Why should he care what we were doing? Of course, I was still not sure why Declán had done that in the first place – cheating!

Possibly,” I mused.

Shaking my head after a moment I continued, “I know who and what he is. He is much more than just a Guardian, he’s also my boyfriend. Well, one of them. He is not harmed, just swooned a little.” Who was this guy and what right did he have to barge in like this? While I had to again consider Declán’s sanity, I guessed, it was none of this guy’s business!

I felt Declán’s hands snake around my waist from behind, wrapping me tightly against him. I thought he might be more worried for our intruder than about. “Anya, dear, why are yous two fightin’ o’er me?” I could hear the slight slurring that his voice took on every time he was bitten.

Because he attacked us. Why are you asking inane questions?” Really!

I wasn’t attacking you. I was trying to stop you from killing a Guardian. I only just found out one even existed.” The stranger was twitching, obviously not calming.

She wasn’t hurting me, whoever you are,” he mumbled holding up his hand with the strange sharp curved thimble thing on his thumb still. “It was my fault. Thank you for your concern though.”

Moving so he was pulled against my side, I looked at his face carefully. I could still hear the slurring just as I could feel how excited his body still was. My voice held the strange assailant so I wasn’t too worried about taking those extra few seconds.

Your sanity for doing that aside, do you know your little defender here?” Maybe it was someone Declán had met recently, though I doubted it.

No. I see the strange colour of his eyes though. If you don’t mind, I wanna sit for a minute while you argue out who has the right to bite me.” I so wanted to wipe the smirk that was now plastered on his face – off. Ugh! He slid down into a sitting position staring from me to the stranger and back again.
