Good morning lovelies! I'd like to welcome author Mertianna Georgia who is joining us today with a fun post about her new release, Syn in the City. She will also be offering a giveaway at the end so stick around!
First I’d like to say thanks so much, Crystal, for having me on your blog. Today I’m here to talk about my new Urban Fantasy release and the trouble my heroine, Cara, gets into when not one, but three sexy supernatural men vie for her attention.
Syn In the City features Cara Augustine, a witch who’s doesn’t have any powers -- a huge disappointment to her supernatural family. She’s born on the same day as her two cousins, Evika and Sonya, who are also her best friends. On their twenty-first birthdays, Evika convinces Cara to go out in San Francisco to celebrate their joint birthday. In an abrupt change of events, Cara’s powers decide to manifest and they turn out to be the rarest abilities. Cara is a synemancer, a witch who can draw energy from other supernatural beings to create an immense source of power. Unfortunately Cara’s power has a mind of its own and attracts a variety of supernatural men to it can grow in strength. To complicate matters further, Cara’s cousin Evika goes missing the night of their birthday celebration and Cara is now being chased by deadly, demonic creatures.
What intrigued me about the story, aside from the magic aspect, were the three men drawn to Cara by her power. They are very different from each in personality, looks, and even nature but the one thing they have in common is their attraction to her:
Roman Balthazar is tall dark and dangerous in way only a Nightkind magician can be. Nightkinds are vampire-like beings who came to earth from another dimension. When he discovers Cara he decides they were meant to be together. Forever.
Tom Hunter is a handsome blond surfer dude and a werewolf. He thinks Cara is super hot, but finds an innocent flirtation turns into a lifetime bond when he accidently becomes her familiar.
Paul meets Cara on an airplane trip. Lucky for everyone on board he’s one of the few wizards who can be around modern machinery and not cause it to malfunction. The auburn-haired British wizard is immediately drawn to Cara and tries to help her control her newfound abilities.
What I like about this heroine is her sense of humor and her resilience, in her words…
“Despite my determination to think about everything later, thoughts swirled in my head. Maybe I should look at this as my chance to date some guys, as in multiple. Why did I keep thinking everything was such a disaster? So some incredible, beautiful men wanted me. I could think of several women who'd love to be in my shoes. Yeah, the whole cousin-best-friend-sucked-into-mirror-hell, homicidal monsters, smitten magicians, and accidental familiars put a crimp in the positive side of things, but a girl's got to look at the silver lining, you know?”
So what about you? Would you want to be in Cara’s stiletto heels with three gorgeous men chasing her? Or is that just too much to handle and you’d rather be a one-man woman?
