Uncovering hidden secrets can sometimes kill you . . . or worse, steal your soul.

Anastasia Tate has a secret. She can feel the emotions of others through their life energy auras. Not a welcome gift for a teenager. Especially when a sinister presence begins stalking her.

Viktor Castle also has a secret. He’s tasked with protecting humanity yet cursed by an ancient evil to destroy it.

After Viktor saves Ana’s life, her abilities grow stronger. Drawn together, she senses Viktor has answers to lifelong questions. Only he shuns her at every turn, knowing he has saved her only to put her in more danger. As Ana struggles with her attraction to Viktor, he tries everything to bury his unexpected feelings for her. But they must find a middle ground. For only together can they combat the dark forces threatening both their lives . . . and their souls.


Congrats to S.A. Larsen on your release, Marked Beauty!  (Released October 17, 2017). 

Today, on the blog, we have a special guest post from author S. A. Larsen as she shares with us a note about Marked Beauty.  Enjoy!

Dear Reader,

I think you’re cool. Not just because you’re reading this little note from me or maybe even reading my book (Eek!!!), but because you’re here daring to dream and explore. Life is much richer that way. And that you’re even interested in reading my book, whoa . . . I’m totally blown away. So when you thumb through Marked Beauty to read I want you to know how very special of an act you are performing. No joke. It is such an honor to have you follow the lives of the characters I’ve created. I am humbled beyond words.

Marked Beauty is about being a fighter and the refusal to allow life’s struggles to harness who you are. We all have good qualities and some we need to work on. That’s why living out loud and daring to dream big is so important. Just as Ana and Viktor are each a work in progress, so are we. And despite the fantasy and paranormal elements threading their tale, they live in an average world like you and me. Both must accept who they are and move beyond their fears because they matter. And so do you. You are you, and that is enough. So Be the Marked Beauty You Are today, tomorrow, and always.

I hope you find Marked Beauty entertaining and, at times, moving. Your thoughts are always welcome, too! They’re my inspiration to keep this tale going. So drop me a message, anytime.

Happy Reading,



Thank you again to S. A. Larsen for sharing with us, as well as, to Entangled Teen and Chapter by Chapter for including Read. Eat. Love. in the blog tour for S. A. Larsen’s Marked Beauty.
