Title: Aftermath by Jenna Lynn Duncan
Series: book #2 in the Hurricane series
Details: released July 14th
Spotlight Event Organized by: AToMR


Adriana can’t decide which is harder- living in post-Katrina New Orleans or living with two immortal brothers. Ana and Hayden are finally together but Hayden’s brother Luke is trying to come between them… and he has never been known to play fair. Ana is still attempting to cling to her normal life despite psychic visions taking over her dreams. With Mardi Gras season approaching and a vision of a murder, Ana will find out if she can really change the future or if she’s just upsetting a very delicate balance. What she could never predict was just how far Luke would go to satisfy his obsession…

Excerpt from Aftermath (Hurricane #2)

“Forget it, Ana. Just tell me then that there is no hope and I will leave you alone.”

Silence was thick as I tried to drag a coherent thought from my brain.

“For someone who talks a lot, you’re sure quiet now. All you have to do is tell me that there is no hope that we will ever be together and I will be out of your life. I’ll stop trying to ‘woo’ you or whatever the hell you said I was doing.”

“I can’t” I breathed.

“You can’t?” He asked with wrathful incredulity. “It’s easy. If you can’t even tell me there is no hope, then there must be a part of you that wants to be with me.”

Title: Hurricane by Jenna Lynne Duncan
Adriana couldn’t decide what was worse—that Hurricane Katrina was heading for New Orleans, or that she might not survive her kidnapping to see its potential effects. She had trusted Hayden, even fallen for him, and now he and his brother Luke were taking her deeper and deeper into the Bayou. Why had two of her classmates, the mysterious Boudreaux brothers, kidnapped her? Why had Adriana’s dreams started predicting the future? Most importantly, would she make it out of the Bayou alive…

A portion of the sales from 'Hurricane' will be going to the New Orleans Area Habitat Humanity for Humanity.

Jenna-Lynne Duncan graduated from the University of St. Thomas with degrees in Political Science, International Studies and Middle Eastern Studies. She is the author of the popular young adult series Hurricane. She is currently working on a fourth Hurricane novel as well as another YA series.
