Cover Reveal Epicness: Sara B. Larson's DEFY + a Giveaway!

Today is the 14th day of June and, in true Valentines' fashion, we decided to do something EPIC.

I mean really, truly EPIC.

Valentine Sara B. Larson's YA Fantasy DEFY will be the very first Valentine book to debut next year. Like the VERY FIRST. How so? Her official release date is...

JANUARY 1, 2014!!

That's kind of the best way to celebrate the new year, yes? We couldn't be more excited! Just check out this description:

A warrior and a protector, the prince's best guard is also a girl in hiding. No one knows who she really is--or so she thought. But when her world suddenly changes, and two men begin vying for her heart, one girl must stand up against a terrible evil or risk losing everything.

Right? RIGHT?? A girl warrior-in-disguise, a steamy romance, court intrigue. All the fixings of a kick-butt, edge-of-your-seat, swoon-so-hard-you-fall-over fantasy that is, as mentioned above, EPIC.

But I know what you're here for. You're here for the equally epic cover reveal, so without further delay, behold the second cover to grace a Valentine book -- the lush and deadly cover for Sara B. Larson's DEFY!

  5. This cover so perfectly says what your book is: lush setting in the jungle (pretty green leafy background), romance (the rose at the top of the dagger), and a story about a warrior (the awesome dagger). I can't wait for the rest of the world to experience this amazing story!
