Cover Reveal: Sweet Peril, by Wendy Higgins

Hey guys! I'm really excited to be part of the cover reveal for the sequel to Wendy Higgins' Sweet Evil! It was one of my favorite reads of 2012 and when the future of the series was uncertain I was extremely worried about never getting to see how Anna and Kaidan's story continues. I was so relieved when I heard that Harper is going to continue publishing the trilogy!
But now, without further ado, the cover for Sweet Peril!

I think it's absolutely gorgeous! I love how it takes up elements of the first cover but also makes it clear that the situation is now different. Anna's expression is no longer innocent and unknowing. I also like that both her and Kaidan are dressed in the same color. I'm reading that as a connection. They are no longer exact opposites. However, they aren't openly touching so it's clear that they can't really be together. The color of the sky implies that the overall situation is dire but not without, maybe, hope? Anyway, those are my thoughts. I'd love to hear yours in the comments!

Here's the book blurb:
Anna Whitt, daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a claim. She’d been naive about a lot of things. Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

Sweet Peril will be released on April 30, 2013 by HarperTeen.
Book 3 of The Sweet Trilogy, Sweet Reckoning, is slated for spring/summer 2014.

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences?

This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.

Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She's aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but Anna, the ultimate good girl, has always had the advantage of her angel side to balance the darkness within. It isn't until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He's the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?
