Spotlight on Entangled's new EMBER TEEN Imprint! | excerpt, reveal & giveaway!

Many of you have probably heard of digital publisher Entangled, or perhaps some of the books they publish, like Prophecy Girl or Jennifer L. Armentrout's Lux series, which seems to be in my Goodreads feed every time I log in... A lot of their books have had strong YA cross-over appeal, so Entangled decided to make the most of that by launching their own YA imprint, called Ember Teen! Here's what they had to say about it:
"Our fires burn brightly for our readers and as a way to say thanks to our readers we've launched our latest division of Entangled Teen and it's name is Ember. We have two exciting launch titles: Darker Days by Jus Accardo and Chaos by Christine O'Neil. Read away!" Entangled Teen Ember is a division of Entangled Teen that specializes in digital-first YAs"
To celebrate this new imprint, Entangled is having an Ember Teen blog tour, with tons of reviews, guest posts, interactive tidbits and of course, giveaways. Today, I'll be showcasing their 2 launch titles, as well as giving you a bit of a more in-depth look at one of the titles, Darker Days. Click through to check it out enter to win!

Published August 19th 2013 by Entangled Teen Ember
My name is Maggie Raynard. After sixteen years being just plain me, suddenly, when I lose my temper, my fingers become weapons of mass destruction. Turns out I'm a semi-god, descended from Aphrodite. Sounds cool in theory, but when I accidentally put my ex-boyfriend in a coma, things go downhill pretty fast.

Now some new guy named Mac Finnegan has made it his mission in life to continually piss me off. I'm stuck learning how to use my new powers while also dealing with regular high school problems, and with this annoying and super-hot—guy all
up in my business, I'm about to flip out.

But it gets worse. I just learned there's this watchdog council of semis who keep an eye out for any bad apples. They think I'm the baddest one in the bunch and want to take me out before I do any more damage. My nemesis Mac might turn out to be my salvation, only he's got secrets of his own...and they may just kill us both.

A little sin can be deadly...
Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business.
Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course...
When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.
Seven deadly ones, in fact.
They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they're recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing...
There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.

Now, in just a second you're going to have a chance to enter to win prize packs from both Christine and Jus, but first, check out this exclusive excerpt of DARKER DAYS!

At first, all I saw was a mass of black hair. I smelled fabric softener and the faint, lingering hint of chocolate. When I tried to move my legs and found them stuck, I pulled back.
Oh, hell in a hail storm…
Now I understood why Mom sounded so pissed, and under the circumstances, I really couldn’t blame her.
My leg wouldn’t move because it was wrapped around Lukas’s.
“Whoa. Whatever it is you’re thinking, this isn’t it.”
Lukas stirred. When he opened his eyes and saw me, he paled and tried scooting away, but we were too tangled. He tumbled off the couch to the floor, pulling me down, too. I landed hard with my arm folded awkwardly behind his back. Something metallic under the couch caught my eye. I untangled myself and pulled it out, giving it a quick shake. “Oh, look. I found your keys!”
She didn’t look particularly thankful. “Not my keys.”
I managed to stumble upright and stuffed the key ring into my back pocket. “I couldn’t sleep. Lukas was awake. I guess we fell asleep talking.”
Without taking her eyes from me, she said, “Lukas, do you mind giving us a moment?”
Ah, craps. I knew that tone. The demon crap was about to hit the fan.
With a quick nod, Lukas scurried from the room. He got to the doorway and looked back once with a frown before disappearing around the corner.
Mom stepped around the couch and came to stand in front of me. “Would it be redundant for me to ask what the hell you’re thinking?”
I forced a smile. “That’s a dumb question. I don’t think, remember?”
“Seriously. This wasn’t anything. I couldn’t sleep. He couldn’t sleep.”
She narrowed her eyes. “You looked pretty sleepy to me.”
“It really wasn’t what it looked like, you know. I felt bad for the guy. Trust me, it was painful. He’s seriously annoying. Likes to insult me every chance he gets.”
“So annoying that you curled up on the couch with him?”
I rolled my eyes. “I was on the other end of the couch. It was probably the teddy bear syndrome.”
Eyes wide, she asked, “The what?” I’d stumped her with that one.
“Don’t give me that look! You know exactly what I mean. You fall asleep on a plane or in a car or something, and end up with your head on some stranger’s shoulder.”
She opened her mouth, probably to tell me I looked as full of crap as I felt, but the phone rang.

Christine O'Neil was born and raised in Connecticut, where she spent most of her childhood outdoors catching salamanders, frogs and colds. When she wasn't terrorizing Mother Nature, she was curled up under the covers with her nose in a book. As an adult, she's stopped stalking amphibians, but still loves books. When she isn't reading, she likes to spend her time people-watching. In fact, she's probably watching you RIGHT NOW O_O She's also pretty obsessed with writing YA books, but if she had to pick another profession she would be a ninja...or a Professor of the Dark Arts. Christine also writes adult romance under the pen name Christine Bell.
