Book Blitz: Finding Thor by Kai Strand - Excerpt + Giveaway

Finding Thor by Kai Strand
Published: 12th March 2015

Tragedy has left Cara Cassidy broken and the only thing keeping her from giving in completely is her guilt. Until Nik Rock.

Nik stirs up feelings in degrees she has never experienced, and causes her to do things that most assuredly give him the wrong impression – like kiss him before their first date. Somehow, he breaks down the walls around her emotions until she has no choice but to forgive herself and feel again.

But a mysterious, troubled past follows Nik, and Cara may prove to be his weakest link.

When a royal princess shows up looking for Nik, and an international gang arrives looking for missing jewels, Cara lands in mortal danger. Will she be able to save herself? What will happen to her newly repaired psyche if she loses Nik?

Romance, mystery, and high stakes – just another day in high school.

A deep voice, as rich and warm as homemade hot chocolate, said, “Let me assist you.”

A charming retort of gratitude already forming on her lips, Cara looked up to find the boy from the park crouching to pick up her spiral notebooks. She gaped as fear doused her like a bucket of briny seawater. Her hand, reaching for a textbook, quivered like a leaf in the wind. Somewhere in her mind she recognized that his expression and mannerisms were non-threatening, but she wanted nothing more than to flee.

She scurried to the back of the room, slid into her chair, and scrunched down, wishing she could disappear.

As the boy returned to his own seat at the front of the class, the tilt of his head seemed to indicate all his senses were tuned to her. She could almost see his ears expand to take in every sound she made. Really, she couldn’t see his ears, because his silky black hair fell in shiny waves to just above his shoulders.

When she sucked in her breath, because she realized she’d been admiring his hair, his chin angled toward her ever so slightly. Raking a hand through her own hair, she looked around the room to see if anyone was as wary of him as she was, but everyone else ignored him.
