 Excerpt
I turned away, bag in one hand, my purse in the other. Two hundred dollars in my pocket and no idea where I was going next. I just knew I had to get away. Phoenix was no option. I never looked back, never heard the truck start, never heard his voice again.
I walked out of the parking lot, down the street and down the entrance ramp to the interstate. It only took a few minutes with my thumb out for a big rig to stop. I ran up to the truck, opened the passenger door, swinging up into the cab.
“Where you headed little lady?” Drawled the driver.
“The question is where are you going?”
“I’m headed to Salt Lake.”
“Well, if you don’t mind some company I sure could use a ride.”
“If I had minded the company I wouldn’t have stopped.” He drawled again only this time with a wide toothy smile.
I threw my bag up in the sleeper, stowing my purse at my feet. I stuck my hand in my jacket pocket and felt the money. My eyes started to fill with tears.
“You OK there?”
“Yep, I’m OK. Just something in my eye.”
“Something like a broken heart?”
“You might say that.”

Cover Reveal The Golden Apple by Michelle Diener




Welcome to the Cover Reveal with a Double Giveaway for Michelle Diener's second fairy tale retelling:
The Golden Apple
An Adult Fantasy Romance based loosely on the Princess on the Glass Hill
Coming March 24, 2014


Kayla's world has been turned upside-down...

Her father has made her the prize in a deadly, impossible tournament, and Kayla has retaliated in the only way she knows how; by choosing her champion beforehand. But taking control of the outcome changes the game completely, and when the real reason behind the strange test becomes apparent, Kayla realizes not just her life, but her entire kingdom is at stake.

Rane's honor is torn in two...

In order to save his brother, Rane will do whatever he has to--including deceive and betray a princess. He knew nothing about this tournament would be easy, but when it turns into a deeper, far more sinister game, Rane is forced to see it through to the end, or leave his brother at the mercy of their enemy.

Now their fates are entwined, and they must venture into the deep, dark forest together...

Kayla and Rane are bound to one another by an enchantment and Kayla's actions. But the sorcerer forcing them to do his will may have miscalculated, because no-one comes out of the Great Forest unchanged. No-one.


From Michelle Diener about the cover:

I have always been really lucky to get great covers for all my books, historical and fantasy. The cover fairies smile on me, time and again. What I really love about The Golden Apple, though, is the rich, Brothers Grimm feel to it. Like my fantasy novel published last year, Mistress of the Wind, The Golden Apple is a fairy tale retelling. Mistress of the Wind involves a white bear and icy winds, and so my cover designer and I went for a winter look to the cover, and I absolutely love how it turned out. But with The Golden Apple, I wanted the lush colors of summer, the shadow of the wood, and the gleam of the golden apple--I wanted the fairy tale feel. My cover designer really hit a winner with the title font on the cover of Mistress of the Wind, and it works just as well for The Golden Apple--it has that fairy tale, Brothers Grimm thing going on. One of my friends told me there is a sensuality to the heroine on the cover of The Golden Apple, and I agree. There is a lot going on there, but it is still simple and uncrowded. I am so happy to share the cover with everyone today. Each cover involves hours and hours of work and thought and tweaking, and this one just hit all the right notes for me. I hope you like it just as much as I do!
