Hello lovelies, and welcome to my blog! You’re hunting on Team Blue right now, and I’m Kat Ross, your hostess for this leg of the game.
I’m a fan of villains with justifiable axes to grind and heroes who lie, cheat and cuss. I suppose you could call my books historical fantasy/paranormal suspense, but they’re unruly offspring and generally refuse to stay in one genre. My YASH giveaway book, A Bad Breed, crosses a gothic retelling of Beauty and the Beast with vengeful Rosicrucian cults and French man-wolves and women who DO NOT PLAY.
A bit about YASH
This bi-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors…and a chance to win some awesome prizes!
On this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize–one lucky winner will receive one book from each author on the hunt in my team! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 120 hours!
Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are FOUR contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the BLUE TEAM–but there is also a red team, a gold team and a purple team, for a chance to win a whole different set of books! If you’d like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page.

Today I’m hosting C.M. Boers!
Obscured was C.M.’s debut novel. What began as a way to spend her free time slowly transitioned into a passion for writing. She’s currently working on her sixth novel. The best is yet to come!
You can find C.M on Amazon, Facebook, Instagram and Goodreads, as well as her website.
Wagering Home by C.M. Boers
Ever wonder what it would be like if you had the chance to start over? To restart your life from the moment you opened your eyes?
That’s exactly what I got.
After a horrible car accident, I woke up in the hospital with no memory of my past, surrounded by strangers – or rather, my parents. Moments in time, memories made, all gone…as if they never existed. Time passed, and my body healed while my mind remained locked, leaving me with a blank slate. Life around me returned to normal, and I was simply expected to climb aboard.
Except, I was barely hanging on. Resigned to the fact that my memories might never return, I broke up with my boyfriend, packed up all my things, and headed to Colorado, where I’d planned to attend college in the fall. There, I could start over, be myself, away from watchful eyes and sympathetic looks.
However, I never expected to meet Jack. Falling for him wasn’t part of the plan.
Also not part of the plan: having to choose where I belonged once my memories came flooding back. They say home is where the heart is…but which part of my heart is right?
Fans can find Wagering Home on Amazon, where you can also read it in Kindle Unlimited!
And now for your Exclusive Content!
Here’s a brief excerpt from Wagering Home:
He pulled his phone from his pocket and held it out to me.
I shot him a questioning glance.
I reached to take it and my fingers brushed his as he pulled his hand away. He quickly shoved his hand back into his pocket.
“Guess you didn’t need fate after all.” I pursed my lips at his smiling face.
“I don’t know. This kind of feels like fate.”
And now….ON WITH THE HUNT
Okay, dauntless hunters, you need to know that my favorite number is….
Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the Blue Team and you’ll have the secret code to enter for the grand prize!
