Cover Reveal! Persuasion by Martina Boone

Persuasion (Heirs of Watson Island, #2) by Martina Boone
Release Date: October 28th, 2015
In this second book in the Heirs of Watson Island trilogy—where Beautiful Creatures meets Gone With the Wind—Barrie must rescue her beloved and her family from evil spirits. 
Grieving the death of her godfather and haunted by her cousin Cassie's betrayal, Barrie returns from a trip to San Francisco to find the Watson plantation besieged by reporters and ghost-hunters. Some are hoping to see the ancient spirit who sets the river on fire each night, while others are chasing rumors of a stolen shipment of Civil War gold that may be hidden at Colesworth Place. Chaos descends as Cassie hires a team of archaeologists to excavate beneath the mansion ruins. But more is buried there than treasure.A mysterious, magical man appears at Watson's Landing, claiming the key to the Watson and Beaufort gifts and the Colesworth curse also lies beneath the mansion. 
With a mix of threats and promises, he engages Barrie and Cassie in a midnight visit, but the spell he conjures has potentially deadly consequences.While Barrie and dreamy Eight Beaufort struggle to make sense of the escalating danger and their growing feelings for each other, Barrie has to figure out not only whom to trust, but which gift is more reliable—Eight's or her own. With millions of dollars and the fate of the founding families at stake, she must choose between what she feels deep in her heart and what will keep her loved ones safe.
I am thrilled to show you all this gorgeous cover for Martina Boone's upcoming novel PERSUASION. It's no secret that I adored COMPULSION, the first book in the Heirs of Watson Island  series, as I named it my favourite book of 2014! It was mysterious and romantic and utterly captivating, also the first Gothic novel I read. I also loved the cover, like a lot, and I was wondering if the second cover would be able to live up to the first. I am not disappointed!

If you haven't read Compulsion you absolutely should, you can download it from PulseIt on February 7th, but get it quick because that's only for a limited time. You should buy the hardback though because it looks gorgeous on my shelf.

Martina Boone was born in Prague and spoke several languages before learning English. Her first teacher in the U.S. made fun of her for not pronouncing the "wh" sound right, so she set out to master "all the words”—she's still working on that! In the meantime she’s writing contemporary fantasy set in the kinds of magical places she'd love to visit. 

If you like romance steeped in mystery, mayhem, Spanish moss, and a bit of magic, she hopes you'll look forward to meeting Barrie, Eight, Cassie, Pru, Seven and the other characters of Watson Island.

Has anyone read Compulsion ? Did you love it as much as I did?
