The Captive Series, Book 5, Title and Cover.

 
The Captive Series, Book 5, Jack's story.

I thought I'd give an explanation of why I chose the apple blossom for this one. I wanted to stick with the same theme as the others but also separate it by not using a rose again. The apple blosso...m means hope, if a person dreams of an apple or an apple-blossom, it prophesies a long life, great success, and a steadfast faithfulness and presence of one’s lover throughout the ups and downs of life.

I thought it was pretty appropriate for the book :)

Coming Spring 2014!

    A year has passed since the war against Jack’s father that freed the humans from their roles as blood slaves and servants to the vampire race. Having left the palace behind in order to ensure that the outer towns are obeying the new laws, Jack struggles to come to terms with the grief and haunting memories that drove him from the palace in the first place. He’s content to lose himself in the outer lands and the obscurity that they offer him. That is, until he encounters Hannah.

   Growing up in the small town of Chippman, Hannah had long ago accepted the fact that she would never leave it. When Jack walks into her life, and turns it upside down, she quickly realizes that not everything is what she’d believed it to be. Knowing that Jack will reject her if he learns the truth about her, Hannah struggles to fight her growing attraction to him. For though the town of Chippman seems normal on the outside, its residents harbor secrets that they’ve taken great pains to keep hidden. Secrets that have forced the town to live under the rule of the one man that could tear Jack and Hannah apart forever.

  1. Ooh, this sounds good, Heather! And I LOVE the cover, I think the Apple Blossom was great in separating it from the others, but keeping the same theme helped to connect them also!

    The Blurb sounding really good! I can't wait to go on Jack's journey's with Hannah, but I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY...lol, Hope that you change your mind and write another story in Aria's POV with her and Braith!!! I NEED MORE, OF THEM, PLEASE, I BEG YOU! ;)

  4. You should write another book about Aria and Braith and their lives after the war!! Like the big formal wedding!! And perhaps Arianna could be pregnant!! I love this series so much, I can't let it go yet. I'm looking forward to Jack's story too but I would love more Aria and Braith! You are an amazing writer and I love The Captive series already but I would love it more with another book of the new king and queen. Please consider this, I'm a huge fan or your work!!!! I'm such a nerd that I dream of this becoming a movie and picture myself as Aria. I wish. Only in my dreams. Thanks for viewing my response. You're my favorite author! It means a lot!!

    1. There will be at least 2 more. One will be a prequel and the other will be about another character. I don't want to reveal who until after Redemption is out. I'll keep writing them though as long as come of the characters want their story told :)
