New Release Alert! Beast and Bloom (Seasons of Magic: Petals & Sirens #3)

She thought the mountain monsters were just stories… then one saved her.

Kanella is about to get everything she’s ever wanted: a home for herself and her father, wealth they haven’t seen in years, and a marriage to the love of her life. But then her father falls deathly ill, and the only thing that can save him is a flower that may not even be real. And when she sets off to find it, alone, she finds herself trapped in a mythical temple by a monster instead.

Now she has a chance to find the cure she needs—if she can only escape the monster. Yet as she gets to know him, he seems less like a monster and more like a friend. But time is running out for more than Kanella’s desperate attempt to save her father. As the secrets mount in the temple, she may just be able to set everything right again.

But if she fails, she will lose more than her father. Forever.

Beast and Bloom is part of a standalone series of novellas, Seasons of Magic. If you like seasonal stories, unlikely friendships, and atmospheric tales, then you’ll love Selina J.

About Selina J. Eckert

Selina writes cozy stories about women who can not only overcome their circumstances but also grow and overcome the demons that live within their own hearts and minds. She loves to write stories about magic, because, hey, who couldn’t use a little magic in their life? And more than anything, Selina’s books are full of warm feelings and cozy vibes. Couldn’t we all use a little more warmth?

Selina believes that stories are a way for us to connect to each other, to understand and empathize, to realize we are not alone and be encouraged. This is why she writes.

Outside of her writing life, Selina is many things. She is a neuroscientist. An artist. A musician. A wife. A daughter. A sister. A reader. A dreamer. A book addict.

And, of course, a full-fledged nerd.
