Book Spotlight: The Watcher by Lisa Voisin (Blog Tour & Giveaway)


The Watcher by Lisa Voisin already has a 4.6 star rating from almost 50 people on Goodreads and it just came out yesterday. Needless to say, this YA Paranormal Romance is doing well for itself. So I wanted to bring it to everyone's attention because this book just might be worth the read. There is also a Tour Wide Giveaway that you can enter below for a chance to win some great prizes.

I have read The Watcher and will be posting my review soon.
Summary
Millennia ago, he fell from heaven for her.

Can he face her without falling again?

Fascinated with ancient civilizations, seventeen-year-old Mia Crawford dreams of becoming an archaeologist. She also dreams of wings—soft and silent like snow—and somebody trying to steal them.

When a horrible creature appears out of thin air and attacks her, she knows Michael Fontaine is involved, though he claims to know nothing about it. Secretive and aloof, Michael evokes feelings in Mia that she doesn’t understand. Images of another time and place haunt her. She recognizes them—but not from any textbook.

In search of the truth, Mia discovers a past life of forbidden love, jealousy and revenge that tore an angel from Heaven and sent her to an early grave. Now that her soul has returned, does she have a chance at loving that angel again? Or will an age-old nemesis destroy them both?

Ancient history is only the beginning.

  1. This book sounds right up my alley! I love YA paranormals... I love that you live near to the mountains. I took a cycling trip thru Canada (the Glacier Parkway from Banff to Jasper) and still dream about the beautiful scenery I saw while on my trip. Thanks for the contest! Those e-book sleeves are a wonderful idea! (I have 2 kindles and a nook!)
