SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Today, I am hosting Shaila Patel on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!

See below for Shaila Patel’s exclusive content:
Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a blast, and I wish you ALL could win. At the very least, I know you’ll discover some new reads and terrific authors. For my exclusive content, I’m sharing a preview of ENDURING DESTINY, Book 3 in the Joining of Souls series (coming out May 30th). This book has truly been a labor of love and has let me indulge my love of travel. The story takes Lucky and Liam from the United States to Ireland and then to India. I can’t WAIT for you all to read it! I hope you enjoy the excerpt. Happy Reading!
The force of being torn away from my nightmare left me trembling and gasping for air. Liam was phased too, and his presence in our dimension comforted me for a heartbeat before his anger registered. It chilled my bones. Alarmed, I tried to shake off the heavy blur of sleep but couldn’t–until Liam’s roar cut through it.
And the dream came back to me.
And don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, hosted author’s name, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 19. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the green team and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!
