SCAVENGER HUNT PUZZLE

(If you get stuck as you are moving through the hunt, click through to this page.)

ARE YOU READY??? Here we go…



First--for those of you coming from other blogs, this is ME!



I'm Mari. I live in Austin, Texas and I write books. You might know me for my Blood Coven Vampire series, an eight book, Buffy'esque tale of two twin sisters, Sunny and Rayne, and their adventures with the undead. The series began with BOYS THAT BITE and ended last September with BLOOD FOREVER. You can learn all about the series here. And if you win this Scavenger Hunt you will a copy of BLOOD COVEN VAMPIRES VOLUME ONE which contains the first two books in the series--or whatever Blood Coven book you so desire.

I also have a brand new series starting this September. It's called SCORCHED and I like to call my "Terminator with Dragons" book. Yeah! We're actually revealing the cover of Scorched for the first time next week! Yay! In the meantime, go mark it TBR on GoodReads. I'll wait.

Are you back? Great! Now for our Scavenger Hunt guest author!

A big welcome to... LEIGH FALLON, author of Shadow of the Mark - a captivating love story set against the lush backdrop of Ireland.


Shadow of the Mark is the sequel to Carrier of the Mark. And here's the blurb:

Megan knew she was destined to be with Adam from the very first moment she saw him and now they are determined to be together. But Megan and Adam are Marked Ones, and a romance between two Marked Ones is strictly forbidden...and could cause worldwide devastation. 
Forbidden love story? Exotic setting? Um, yes please! And also, where can I buy myself that cover gown. Seriously! 

So now! On to Leigh's special bonus content. For this Scavenger Hunt only! She has provided us with her own special Shadow of the Mark playlist. So turn up your speakers and check it out! (Don't worry, I'll wait and jam along side you.) When you're done it'll be time to move on to the next stop of the Scavenger Hunt. But not until you enter for a chance to win an ARC of Scorched!
