I discovered this book a couple of days ago and not only the cover but the plot seem really good and engaging.

Name: Destined
Author: Jessie Harrell
Release Date: 17th November, 2011

Official blurb:

When Psyche receives a prophecy gone horribly wrong, she learns that even the most beautiful girl in Greece can have a hideous future. Her fate? Fall in love with the one creature even the gods fear.

As she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy, Psyche must choose between the terrifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she's come to expect out of life: you cannot escape what is destined.

Destined is a fresh and heartachingly romantic retelling of the Cupid & Psyche myth from debut novelist, Jessie Harrell.

The awesome part about this? I'm going to interview the author, Jessie Harrell, in a few days and post my review about the book too, woohoo! So stay tunned for that ;)

What about you, beautiful people? What are you waiting for?
