Love can happen in unexpected places and ways. So in honor of St. Valentine’s Day, here are some young adult fantasy reads that have unexpected romances or romances that happen in unique ways!
Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
This book is told from 3 points of view—the princess who ran away from her wedding, the prince who goes after her, and the assassin sent to kill her. However, the story is told so masterfully that when the princess is interacting with the prince and assassin, you don’t know which is which! You’ll be on the edge of your seat!
A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan
In this retelling about the cursed daughter of King Midas, don’t trust anyone. You never know who’s hiding secrets and who might think the girl with the ability to turn things to gold might be worth her own weight in gold.
Caraval/Legendary by Stephanie Garber
These two books will also keep you guessing as to who our heroines might end up with. Who can you trust? Whose relationship is real? Who’s telling the truth? Garber will lead you into the world of Caraval and delight your senses as you try to figure out the answers to all those questions.
Doon by Lorie Lagdon and Carey Corp
This YA retelling of Brigadoon has some swoon worthy princes from Scotland, but things get complicated when you’re leaping through time. Pick up this series to see who ends up with their prince!
Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddix
This is an oldy but a goodie. This Cinderella retelling talks about what happens after the ball. Everyone expects Cinderella to stay in love with the prince she just met…but what if love takes an unexpected turn?
I can’t believe this day is finally here! A Touch of Gold, my young adult book about the cursed daughter of King Midas, is finally available in stores starting Tuesday, August 14th…although I’ve heard it’s already on shelves in most Barnes & Nobles!
It’s taken 8 years from when I started writing the book to reach this point. So many people helped me along the way, and I can’t thank them enough. This truly is a dream come true.
In hopes of continuing that dream, I have a few favors to ask.
First week sales are really important not just because they help me make bestseller lists but because they effect my rank on Amazon, and a lot of smaller booksellers look at Amazon rankings to decide if they want to carry the book. There are lots of ways you can help with my sales ranking. The first and best way is to buy the book!
You can order the book from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your local bookstore.
You can also call your local bookstore and ask if they’ll be carrying A Touch of Gold.
You can also request your local library branch carry A Touch of Gold.
The next best thing you can do is to review the book on:
You may have to wait until Tuesday to review it on Amazon, but that is the platform where reviews are most needed because once an author reaches 50 reviews, certain algorithms kick in to help boost the book’s visibility on the site. You also don’t even have to have read the book or have bought it from Amazon to leave a review. Something simple like, “It’s a great book,” counts!
Additionally, just getting the word out there about the book will help tremendously too.
You can tell any teachers that you know. Ask them to buy a copy for their school library or ask them to tell their students about it.
