Kim Karr’s Mended Tour {+Giveaway}

MENDED Cover PhotoI’m delighted to be participating in author Kim Karr’s amazing blog tour for her soon-to-be released, MENDED.

To celebrate this upcoming release, Kim is giving away one print copy of MENDED to a lucky reader at Thoughts in Progress. Please see the end of the post for details.

Here’s a brief synopsis of MENDED

Music has the power to heal, but not all broken hearts can be mended.
        Always in control, Xander Wilde considered life on the road to be a perfect fit for him. But when disaster strikes on the band’s latest tour, fate intervenes…and a newly single Ivy Taylor, the only girl he has ever loved, steps back into his life.
        After moving past her painful breakup with Xander years ago, Ivy was poised to become the next big name in music…when suddenly she withdrew from the limelight—the same day she announced her engagement to her controlling agent, Damon Wolf.
        Xander knows he should keep his distance. But once they’re on the road, he can’t resist pursuing her for a second chance. Yet a jealous Damon can’t let her go—and he’s keeping dangerous secrets that could destroy them all. 
        When the three of them come together, everything falls apart.  But if Xander and Ivy can hold tight to the bond that connects them, they just might have a chance to reclaim the powerful love they thought they had lost forever....

MENDED (ISBN: 978-0451470676) is Book #3 in Kim’s The Connections Series and is 320 pages long. It is available to pre-order at the following locations: Amazon, iTunes, Barnes and Noble, and in paperback.
