The Bloodstone Saga Tour

Welcome to the tour for The Bloodstone Saga!!

This is a series of books by Courtney Cole. I have a guest post an some info on the final book of the series, The Bloodstone Saga: My Tattered Bonds.

It is always darkest before the dawn. Harmonia has certainly found this to be true. She has faced more than any one person, goddess or mortal, should ever have to.

She has lost her soul mate time after time, lies and deceit have surrounded her and in fact, she has even been misled about her very identity. Yet she has always emerged with strength and grace. But now she will face the unthinkable. Her daughter has been taken and Harmonia will risk everything to get her back.

In this epic series finale, all will be revealed. The only question remaining is…Who will be left standing?

Find the book on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.

About Courtney Cole:

Courtney Cole is a YA novelist who loves thunderstorms, cake batter and insane amounts of coffee. She wrote her first story at the age of 9, although thankfully it has remained hidden away in an old cedar chest beneath musty blankets. Her more recent efforts are much better.

Find her on her website, Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads.

Courtney has written a guest post about knowing when you're soul mates. 

You Know You're Soul mates When...

You know, this is an interesting question. But, it brings to mind one of the most romantic things I’ve ever heard someone say.

Several years back, I was reading an interview given by singer Rob Thomas (Rob—if you ever read this, please, pleeeease do a Matchbox 20 reunion album!) and he was talking about when he first got together with his wife, Marisol. He said after he kissed her for the first time, he knew right then that he would never kiss another woman. How romantic is that?? It makes my heart swoon. But I think it’s an accurate analogy of a soul mate. When you are meant to be with someone, you just know it. Your heart knows it. I’ve listened to my various friends throughout the years waffling back and forth over how they felt about their boyfriends— and my thought is… if you aren’t sure how you feel about someone, then they definitely are not “the one”. When you find the perfect person for you, you will know it. There will be no question.

When I first started dating my husband, there was an immediate connection. I couldn’t get enough of him- of being near him, laughing with him, talking with him, etc. And to this day, a decade later, I feel the same way. I think that’s how it should be. He feels like home to me. And that’s how you know when you’re with your soul mate.

Thanks! I know I certainly agree with those sentiments.

Look at those Greek drachma, gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. I'd love to win one :)



I so agree about the soulmate. I knew almost right away that my husband was the one. After three weeks, he told me he loved me. And he does feel like home. A hug from him can chase away my biggest worries, my strongest fears. He is home to me. Eighteen years and going strong.
