Randi Cooley Wilson's REVELATION Blog Tour

(The Revelation Series, Volume One)
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
Published: May 1st, 2014
Eve Collins starts her freshman year at college blissfully unaware that one revelation will challenge everything she’s believed to be true about her family, life, and future, and right in the midst of it all is Asher St. Michael.
Mysterious and aloof, Asher is appointed to protect Eve at all costs. Bound by his oath of loyalty to mankind, loving her is forbidden.
Dark and enigmatic, Gage Gallagher may be even more dangerous to Eve than the demonic army that hunts her.
Caught in the middle of a centuries old war, Eve must choose sides knowing that the wrong choice will cost more than just her life.
Can Asher and Eve fulfill their destinies or will their love destroy everything?
Revelation is a journey of self-discovery, love, and sacrifice.
Available at: B&N   iTunes   

This is volume one of a series.
“Cold?” A deep, cocky voice greets me. I look up to see Asher leaning against a black Aston Martin DB9, my dream car. Damn if he isn’t looking every bit as delicious as he normally does. I really need to get my head examined. My lips form a tight line. “Why do you care?” It comes out harsher than I meant it too. Why does this guy get under my skin? The unnerving guy holds his stance, his scrutiny still focused on me. I try to ignore the burning sensation his gaze causes as it settles into my skin. I’m definitely not cold anymore. Asher breaks the awkward silence after a few moments. “Do I make you anxious, Eve?” “No.” I shiver but for a different reason now. My name sounds like a prayer on his lips.
Nodding his head in understanding, he prowls over to me like a predator who has its prey in their trap. “You sure?” he whispers.
Holding my position, I lift my chin and attempt to show him he doesn’t affect me. “Yes.”
Asher stops in front of me, bends down and forces me to look him in the eye. My eyelids flutter just the tiniest bit at his body’s nearness to mine. Damn traitorous body.
The corners of his mouth lift smugly as moves closer. So close I can feel his minty warm breath on my lips. Chuckling quietly, he takes off his jacket and my heart begins doing back flips. His shoulders are really broad up close. Slowly, he leans forward, wrapping his leather coat over my shoulders and engulfing me with warmth and his intoxicating scent.

I read. I write. I adore boots. I love scarves (especially hand-knit ones). My favorite color is yellow. I prefer dark chocolate. I require coffee (hate tea). Red wine is essential to life. I wear tons of bracelets (usually at the same time). I have tattoos (locations are secret). I believe that earth-shattering love exists and when you find it, it will move your soul like nothing else.

Book characters are similar to real people. Some you meet and connect with instantly. Others you get to know over time and maybe a few glasses of wine. Then there are the few that turn you off from the instant of introduction.

When I sat down to write this guest post, I tried to come up with a clever and safe way to introduce you to the main characters of Revelation without spoiling their stories.

After racking my brain, I finally decided the best way to get to know them would be to hold a Q&A with them outlining their favorite things.

Following each character’s answer, you’ll see an author’s comment. A little unknown fact about either the series, or the character that provides a sneak peak!

Their answers (direct from their mouths) are below. Enjoy!!! None of the answers the characters provided are spoilers for the book series.

Q: What is your favorite color and why?

Eve: “Indigo Blue, because it’s the color of Asher’s eyes.”

Asher: “Black, for obvious reasons. Although, hazel is nice too (winks at Eve).”

Gage: “Also black but my reason is simple, I look hot in it.”

Callan: “Um, definitely green.”

Abby: “Green as well.”

Keegan: “Red without question.”

Kenna: “Red.”

Aria: “I have two, pink and black. It’s super hard to decide.”

Author’s Comment: I made Eve’s eye color hazel in honor of my daughter who has the most beautiful shade of hazel eyes, I’ve seen to date.

Q: What is your favorite snack food?

Eve: “Nachos, fully loaded. No beans though.”

Asher: “French fries covered with bacon, sour cream, and chives.”

Keegan: “Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese Dressing.”

Kenna: “I don’t really snack.”
