Zoku's Hope
Angel Crest Series Book 2
by Chelsea O'Neal

~ Cover Reveal! ~



After Jaiden found Daniah in Juniper, they returned to Garnet City. Daniah is destined to become Queen of Zoku, a race of angel half-breeds who protect the humans from a soul-stealing evil. Now, Daniah is learning of her abilities and responsibilities as queen. Just as things seem to be going smoothly, a group of Zoku show up to help, led by an angel, Shelly.

Mallory has been on her own for most of her life, trying to protect and save those around her.  She is Toyek, and she's been hiding in plain sight while fighting for her life. She is intent on finding her friends' daughter, whatever it takes, when an innocent trip to the supermarket takes an interesting turn.

Orion has been hired to find a female and, as a Tracker, finding people is his specialty. He finds much more than he was looking for when he runs into the beautiful Mallory. While pursuing both his target and the resistant Mallory, he finds himself fighting to defend Princess Daniah and the Zoku.

Can Orion and Mallory work together to help Daniah be the hope the Zoku so desperately need? Or will a few surprises and a tragedy be all it takes to break the united front of the Zoku fighting against the evil Meikal?

~Excerpt from Zoku's Hope~

I smile slightly and huff out a breath, “Trev, how could you?” I ask, then figure I might as well go ahead and say it. “I have tried to avoid you as much as possible since we got back; makes it kind of hard to talk.” I watch his eyes go wide.

He opens his mouth to say something then closes it and looks at me with an odd look on his face. “Why would you avoid me?” 

I sigh and close my eyes for a moment, then look at him and decide to go for broke and get it out there. “When we were in Tabul, after you kissed me, I freaked. I thought I wasn’t able to protect you while being so close to you. But I thought it over and decided that maybe we could try being together. I was going to tell you that I wanted to be with you and not just as a protector, but you told me it was a mistake, and that it wouldn’t happen again.” I shrug, then finish, “I figured you regretted the kiss and didn’t really like me. Since we have gotten back, I’ve thought about you a lot, and I guess it is easier to avoid you than to see what I can’t have all the time.” I hold my breath for a moment, then force myself to take calming breaths and will away the heat in my cheeks.

I watch as Trevor blinks a couple of times, then blinks again before he smiles widely at me. I feel tears prickle, wondering why he has to be cruel about my feelings, but before I can do much more than feel embarrassed and hold my tears back, he takes hold of my chin with his thumb and fingers and makes me look at him.

“Can you see me OK?” he asks, and I have a lump the size of Grazier in my throat, so I just nod. “I have been in love with you for years. I wanted you when we kissed, and I have wanted you every moment of every day since I had that small taste.”

I search his face for the truth in his words and feel my stomach explode with butterflies. I feel lighter than I have in months. I feel hope and happiness rise
up in me. Trevor just said that he loves me!

She loves to chat with readers so please feel free to

We are celebrating Olivia's newest release "Ripped". 

Excerpt: Lyv is a curvy and optimistic girl who can’t wait to finish high school and run away from her drunk mother. Emotional abuse is what that woman dishes out best in the family’s Long Island diner. 
Lyv’s only support is her best friend Ten, a passionate guy from the right side of the track. But Ten has already moved on to college so there’s only so much he can do to help her get through her senior year and then he’ll soon be going away to study in Europe for a term. 
When the Christmas holidays come around, Ten takes Lyv out for a night on the town. 
That’s how Lyv meets Alexander, a talented rising rock star. Spark flies during this chance encounter. 
Just before the start of his first tour, Alexander shows Lyv how to welcome the New Year with a hot and heavy night of passion.
Life is finally looking up for Lyv … That is, until she finds out she’s pregnant. 
With the two guys in her life out of reach, a baby on the way and an abusive mother, Lyv has some tough calls to make. Can she make the right ones?

This is a great story in so many ways. Think YA meets NA and explode into a world that you can't help but love. Lyv is such a fantastic character. She lives in a world that is emotionally abuse (her mother), but works hard and always has a smile and brings sunshine to everyone else's world. She's got a fantastic best friend Ten (aka Tennessee). He's got his own issues with his mother but overall he's got it a bit better than Lyv. They find each other when they are children and because of Ten's influential family, Lyv's mothers restaurant finds itself on the "map" so to speak. So even though she'd love to tell Lyv "NO" on hanging out with Ten, she doesn't really have a leg to stand on and she knows it. 
Ten takes her out one night where they both meet Alexander. Both of them think he's hot but Alexander only has his eye on Lyv. They miss each other that night but Alexander doesn't give up and he finds Ten and sets something up so he can have some time with Lyv. They get along great and end up having a fantastic night together before Alexander has to move on for a Band Tour. Not too long after that Lyvv discovers she's pregnant. She doesn't care what happens between her and Alexander...she wants the baby no matter what. The only problem? Her Evil stepmother. I won't tell you what happens with the baby but that part of the story doesn't have a happy ending. 

Lyv makes it back to New York and manages to call Ten, who comes to rescue her. At this point she's already 18 and she stays with Ten and his two roommates Oliver and Andrew (who happens to be Alexander's older cop brother). She finally finds a home and things are looking up for her. Ten is sweet and takes care of her and Lyv kind of babies the entire male group. She ends up with Alexander again when he comes back for awhile, before leaving on tour again. 

I don't want to say too much. Lyv does find her own Happily Ever After. It might not be in the traditional sense but real life is hardly perfect and folks don't always get the HEA they think they want. Its still a happy ending though and the guy meant for her is a good choice. Solid and dependable and attractive and he has a very sexy side in the bedroom! ;) 

Anyways, if you enjoy YA/NA stories this is definitely a story to pick up.
