Sylvia of Amaretto Flame takes over Tattooed Books!

Hi, all! My name is Sylvia and apparently I'm taking over this blog today to tell you a little bit about myself and my family. I am a character in Sammie Spencer's Amaretto Flame (the first in the Eagleton Coven series), and I'm a member of Eagleton Coven. Unfortunately, the story focuses on my coven sister Olivia and not me. *Grumbles*

So Olivia did something you just. never. do. She made a big mistake, and our high-priestess Ivanna banished her to a human town for a summer. It totally SUCKED because the Venator (witch hunters that kill our kind) were actively attacking Wise Ones nearby. Since Olivia has this insane power, it's best to have her nearby if you're going to get attacked by a hunter. While she was in the human town, Olivia met Jackson Vance. I don't know what kind of guys YOU like, but Jackson is pretty dreamy. He's got this messy copper hair, amaretto-colored eyes, and ... y'all, he SINGS. I mean, I guess I understand why she sort of 'took a liking' to him. She made a few other human friends too, which is weird. I mean, Olivia is one of those people who opens up to no one other than the coven.

Anyway, while she was there, we figured out that the Venator were hunting for a specific person, and the oracle helping us thought that person might be Everett. Everett is our coven brother and he's Olivia's very best friend. He's definitely her favorite. I mean, I don't care. Whatever. I'm just saying. So, she tried to come back to Eagleton to protect Everett but Ivanna refused to let her. We almost had a full-scale revolt here! I'm talkin' serious stuff.

As she tried to figure out what the Venator wanted, Olivia stumbled onto a HUGE secret. I can't tell you because the other coven members are standing here with their magick fingers all pointed at me like they're going to turn me into a weasel or something. What I will say is that the secret put a serious kink in Olivia's plans. She then had to figure out how to save all of us, plus the human friends she had made. Let's just say that stuff got SUPER deep for a while. I want you to read the book, okay. I'm dead serious. You can get it on Amazon for your eReader and if you don't have one of those, download the Kindle for PC app they have there.

You can also have a chance to win the book! The blog owner will choose one commenter to win it, and if you follow us on the whole blog tour and comment on each post, you'll have a chance to win other awesome stuff. Please follow us.
