Cover Reveal for Stella Price’s new book

I can’t wait to read this! I am so excited to have Stella here today to talk about her newest book to be released soon.

Welcome to the page Stella. Tell us about Eternal Echos please.

Im so excited to announce that my first ever book, Eternal Echoes will be available October 8th 2013! This book is close to my heart for so many reasons, but biggest is that this is the first book I have written alone! Its a post apocalyptic paranormal romance, set 50+ years in our future. Humanity has changed, gods have resurfaced and the world is a shadow of what it is now…

Wanna see the Cover?

Yes, I did it myself, and I love it. The lovely sexy male on this cover was photographed by None other than Jenn LeBlanc, from The Illustrated Romance!

So… Shall I give you a blurby?
Ariston Dago is a sentry, a protector for his people. He watches the
waters of his territory, keeping his god and his race safe both above and below
the murky depths around Venice, Italy.
When he’s compelled to save a human that falls from a transport, his
life is forever changed, because the human he saves, Teagan Moss, is his mate,
the first human to ever mate a Dagonite. 
 
Teagan Moss is the kind of woman to shoot first and
then question the body later. when she wakes with a Hydro bomb strapped to her
body, she knows someone is going to pay for trying to kill her, and that she is
going to need the help of the sexy exotic Dagonite to find out who exactly
needs that bullet in their brain. What she doesn’t count on, is the scorching
attraction she feels for the male who is so certain she is his.
Thrust into solving the mystery surrounding the attempt on his mate’s
life, Ari and Teagan uncover more than the answers they are looking for, and
the truths they unearth could send the world into another war.
And how about an excerpt?
It wasn’t the body falling from
the 734 transport to Thebes that caught Ariston Dago’s eye, or the arms and
legs flailing in the moonlight just before it crashed into the deep water
beyond Venice’s inner harbor. It wasn’t the first time that had happened, and
he knew that soon enough one of the salvage teams would fish what was left of
the body out of the water. No, what caught him was the voice in his head that
sounded like an alarm
Save her.
Ari shook his head, trying to
clear it. It wasn’t the first time he had heard voices and it probably wouldn’t
be the last. The thing was, you had to know what voices to listen to, and this
one, this one was new to him. Powerful and demanding. He took notice.
“Shit.” he motioned to the
splash. Even though it happened, it was rare, and they knew better then to try
and save the person, the majority of the time they were already dead and were
food for the darker things that resided in the waters.
Tobin nodded. “Yeah, not alive,
it looks like a woman. Human too.” He offered and lowered the binoculars. “You
wanna take this one, or should I?”
Now why would the voice demand he
save her? It bore looking into; especially since he knew without a doubt it
wasn’t that bitch Calendula’s voice urging him into some sort of ambush. No,
this was a male’s voice, faint, like a whisper, but commanding.
Save her.
Ari shrugged. “I think I should…”
he said before he dove into the murky waters and swam towards the body that was
sinking fast. A human wouldn’t be able to handle the rapid decent, not with their
underdeveloped lungs and lack of gills. Yes, the voice was right, he had to
save her.
This was the hard part about
being a Sentry. You never knew what was going to fall into the ocean, friend or
foe. And with humans, you doubly didn’t know. Not that human beings were eager
to infiltrate the area or be eaten by the mega leviathans that called the
deeper depths around Venice home and acted like a natural line of defense.
His problem was that while he was
a Sentry, he was also chosen by the gods in ways he never quite understood. So
things were never quite cut and dry.
Whoever the woman was, it wasn’t
going to matter unless he made it to her first.
He propelled himself through the
water, his eyesight sharp as he scanned. The impact had triggered the underwater
lights, providing him extra illumination to locate her. And as fast as he was
going, he couldn’t find her.
He scanned again, darting his
eyes from the large strands of seaweed that rose from the depths. Nothing. The
smaller schools of fish played in the lights and the reflective metal that
lined the shelf to help keep the waters bright were doing their job, but he
still didn’t catch any movement. It was then that he saw her rapidly descending
form, almost out of sight of the lights.
Once she crossed the lower
threshold, if the pressure didn’t kill her, she would wish it had. The lights
did more than help the Sentry’s see… it kept the monsters that prowled these
waters at bay.
I see her! Shit something is strapped to her. 
Bomb? Tobin asked mentally.
Don’t think so, it looks like a keystone or some sort of weight.
Someone is trying to kill her.
Grab her. A reported death in our waters would fuck everything up. If
we have to dispose of the body…You know what this will do to us otherwise.
Ari did know. His people were
already having issues, they didn’t need more. He dove, calling on all his
reserves of strength. He had one shot, to get under her and catch her before
they did, otherwise it was going to be one fucker of a day.
He rode the current, letting it
push him and he slipped just under the lights and then turned, letting his body
shoot him up like a rocket through the water. He felt the disturbance before he
saw the threat and hauled ass, determined to get to the girl.
A mega angler, its jaws open, sped
from the opposite direction, intent on grabbing the prize first. Ari was not
going to lose to a goddamn fish and pressed off, getting ready for battle,
knowing full well it was going to be a close call on two levels, and he didn’t
have anything that would handle the fucking coming for them.
Toby, shoot a pulse cannon toward the southwestern quadrant, and quick.
He had one shot to do this right.
He felt the explosion as it hit
the water, the shockwave hitting the angler just as he was about to reach the
girl. The angler stunned, it gave Ari the second he needed. He grabbed her and
shot a smokescreen of ink, confusing the fish as he ascended, quicker now as
the girl in his arms was awake and fighting for air.
He turned her towards him, seeing
her face surrounded by a cloud of red hair, her eyes dark and filled with
terror, her hands tearing at what was strapped to her abdomen as she fought to
break the surface.  Pretty didn’t cover
it when it came to this one. For a human she
was stunning.
He looked up. Even at top speed
he wouldn’t make it, not without damage to his extremely beautiful damsel in
distress. She was going to die if he didn’t do something. He just hoped what he
was going to do wasn’t going to get him slapped.
Ari looked her in the eye. Trust me… he projected to her as he
moved closer and kissed her, opening her mouth as he did. She struggled, losing
the rest of the air she had, and then he exhaled, filling her with the oxygen
he expelledwhen underwater.
Seconds went by as he breathed
for two, and she calmed, her body molded to his and he felt a shot like
lightning through his body. They broke the surface a minute later, and he
pulled away so she could breathe on her own. He got a good look at her, her
hair silken like a sheet behind her head, her features almost elfin in the
moonlight. Sweet lord…
She sputtered, coughed, which was
normal for anyone going from the more pure O2 that the Dagonites manufactured
when underwater to the tainted air of the surface world.
“Calm… I got you female… calm.”
She coughed again and shook her
head. “Get it off!” she weezed. “Dragging me down…Off!” She coughed again.
He was happy to oblige her,
ripping at the binding that was still weighing them down with several of his
tentacles, letting the offending weight fall. Whatever it was, the underwater
probes would find it, and figure out what the issue was.
“Thank you,” she said before she
leaned in and kissed him full on the mouth, and promptly passed out in his
arms. Again, the feeling, like lightning, zinged through his body, making his
chest hurt and his tentacles curl. This was not what he needed right now, not
with a human.
Saw that. You think she’s going to freak when she finds out your not
human?
I don’t think it’s going to make a difference either way. It might have
been gratitude, but I think I just found my female.
And you just happened to save her, with the glorious help of your
brother, from being food for a leviathan? Yeah that doesn’t seem right. Fate
doesn’t play like that Ari… nor does it give Dagonites humans as mates. 
Well his brother was right on
that end of it, but the feeling, the growing need… Yes he was a Sentry, and
yes, he rescued people for a living, but in all the years he had been at the
job not one woman had elicited such a response from him on such a primal level.
Words whispered through his head,
the voice again, and he knew now, without a doubt who it was.
Ariston… protect her… she is special… she is unique…
Dagon rarely spoke to his
children, but they all wished to hear his strong voice in their heads, guiding
them to their purpose. Ari felt humbled, and energized with a new sense of  being. He didn’t question, but answered his
god by clutching the female tighter, and swam back towards his post. If his god
said he was to protect her, then that was what he would do.
Well? What do ya think? Will ya be picking it up in October? Dont forget to ADD it to your TBR pile at GR!
