Cover Reveal: Beautiful Curse by Jen McConnel

Swoon YA authors have been busy! Isn’t the cover for Beautiful Curse awesome? Totally up my goth-girl, emo alley.

Beautiful Curse
Release Date: December 2014
Swoon Romance
Summary from Goodreads:

Sixteen-year-old Mya Jones is cursed.

She is, hands down, the most beautiful creature on earth. But beauty can wound,
and Mya finds herself reviled and shunned by her peers. If there is even a
chance that she could start over, Mya longs to take it, no matter the risks.

So when the strange Mr. Merk offers her a new life away from home, Mya is
hesitant but hopeful. Only she didn’t count on the mysterious Ross, or her
feelings for him.

BEAUTIFUL CURSE is a contemporary retelling of the myth of Psyche and Cupid.
