Hello, dear readers!  I am sooo excited today to bring you the cover for Kelly Keaton's newest book Embers in a Dark Frost.  In the author's own words, "the book is fantasy. It’d be categorized in the store as Adult Fantasy. It’s heroine driven. Inspired by Irish mythology. It's a quest/self discovery type of story that also includes a romantic/sensual storyline. The book is not YA or Happily Ever After romance. So they’d have to like the fantasy genre, adult fiction, and be okay with the sexual content. (It is NOT erotica), but there are a couple sex scenes."  I've been told that the story might fall in that new category new adult we've all been hearing so much about...or devouring, as the case may be.  :)  This cover is gorgeous and I hope you all agree:

So, what's the book about?

The Fire Breathers have come. The Underworld calls. A choice must be made…

With her feared half blood and flame-colored hair, DEIRA D'ANU is a constant reminder of human betrayal and the war that claimed the light from Innis Fail. Now, darkness and frost creep across the land, strengthening the Lord of the Underworld. War is imminent—an allegiance with the Fire Breathers is vital. When their champion, Balen, sees Deira, he believes she is the key to finding the light and stopping the dark frost. But the Underworld calls to Deira, tempting her to turn her back on a world that never cared and betray the champion willing to sacrifice everything to keep her safe and save his world from darkness.
