TEASER TUESDAY: Georgeann Swiger

Welcome to another installment of TEASER TUESDAY. I'm so super excited to have the lovely Georgeann Swiger here with us today. She'll be sharing an excerpt from her paranormal YA, CLOVEN. Let me tell you, this is one awesome book!! (I had the pleasure of editing it!)  


I walk toward a weeping willow in the far corner of the garden and push aside the slender branches. A stone bench is next to the trunk. I make my way to it and sit.

Micah opens the branches and steps under the canopy with the long branches closing behind him. “You’ve discovered my hiding spot.”

A gentle breeze rustles the leafy curtain that hides us from view. “I like it here.”

“I’ve sat on that bench a lot lately.” He looks up at a crook between two branches high in the tree. “Sometimes, I like it up there.”

The branches curve like a recliner, creating a perfect spot to sit back and relax. I lay the tulip on the bench and stand, wanting to try out Micah’s spot in the tree. Before I start climbing, he grabs me around the waist and pulls me against his chest. “You’re not going up there.”

I bite my lip and smile. “Why? You think I’m going to fall, don’t you?”

“I wouldn’t let you fall.”

The slight curve of his lips winds into his eyes. His focus is on me and nothing else. My stomach tightens as he inches closer. He’s going to kiss me again. And I won’t stop him. I want to kiss him more than I ever wanted anything in my life. When he leans in, his lips flutter over mine as gently as the butterfly that brushed my neck.

I open my mouth, encouraging him to kiss me harder, deeper. He timidly accepts the first taste inside my mouth. Slowly, he relaxes, taking his time with the kiss. He treats me like a fragile doll. To show him he can’t break me, I crush our mouths together to explore the depths of the kind of kiss that feels like heaven, but is forbidden in the Kingdom. My body tingles as his hands find my hair, and then my face. He cups my cheeks, pulling my mouth tighter against his. This more intense version of kissing is something he apparently likes as much as I do.He kisses me until I can’t breathe. When my lungs start to burn, I back away, gasping.

“You’ll always catch me,” I say, panting.



What would you do if the only things standing between you and the angel you love were another angel and the fiery pits of Hell?

When Anya and Micah declare their love for each other, the battle for the souls of the star-crossed angels stretches across the heavens. With Heaven forbidding their love, Micah vows to protect Anya by sentencing himself to Hell.

But Anya won’t let him go without a fight. She goes into Hell after him, only to discover an angel from Micah’s past is willing to do anything to keep Micah in Hell.

With love and lies blinding Micah, Anya fights to get him to face his demons and return to Heaven, even if it means hearts will be broken.

The battle for the angels begins where it left off. Between Heaven and Hell is forbidden love..
