Laura Howard: Return of The Ascendant by Raine Thomas


Return of The Ascendant by Raine Thomas

I'm super excited to welcome my awesome friend Raine Thomas. She's been a huge source of inspiration to me since the beginning of my writer's journey!

Raine's most recent series starts with Return of the Ascendant. If you'd like to win an e-book of ROA, leave a comment below including your name and email!


Expecting to enjoy another typical college night at a frat party with friends, Kyra Vaughn’s plans derail when she’s almost killed…twice. Her savior, a tall, sexy stranger who calls himself TaeDane, claims that he’s the personal bodyguard for the Ascendant of Alametria. She’s convinced he’s crazy.

Especially when he insists that she’s the Ascendant.

With dark enemies hunting her down, Kyra has no choice but to trust her supposed bodyguard. Ty vows to help her remember her past and return her safely to Alametria, but someone seems intent on interfering, challenging his abilities at every turn.

As Kyra’s memories emerge, she remembers that Ty is more to her than he’s let on…much more than he’s allowed to be. She’ll also discover that there are many things about her planet and herself that she’d rather forget. In the end, she’ll have to make a choice: cling to the life she knows, or risk it all to become the person she’s destined to be.

Look for Book 2 coming July 21, Rout of the Dem-Shyr.

And now, it's Trailer Time! Turn those speakers up!!!
