Taken By Storm by Angela Morrison Excerpt | Promo Blitz

Photobucket

I don't usually particpate in promo blitzes, but this is one book that sounds completely interesting. When I got the excerpts for the blitz, I couldn't decide between them! All three had fantastic qualities. In the end, I went with the shortest one, since it's adorable. But first, here's the summary of Taken by Storm:

Book cover of Taken By Storm by Angela Morrison

Mormon girl Leesie has life figured out until devastated Michael lands in her small town high school. He needs her like no one has before. A rare journey into a faithful LDS teen’s intimate struggle.

"[Morrison] handles the topics of religion and premarital sex gracefully without passing judgment. The message has less to do with religion than learning to respect and cherish others while staying true to one’s own beliefs.” –Publisher’s Weekly, starred review

Brand new paperback and reformatted ebook with fully scalable fonts. Includes bonus, never-before-published scene, "Airport Good-bye!"


Excerpt:

I’m lost to his firm chest,
his slender fingertips, his long wavy hair,
his mouth sucking my bottom lip—
The world spins, the stars shift,
and I can’t see anything except his smoky
gray eyes gazing into mine.

You scare me, whispers
from my mouth across his.

Good, he breathes into me.
I need you to save me.
-Excerpt from Taken By Storm by Angela Morrison
