Ta-Da! Most Beautiful Words! #MMromance #Coverreveal

A very special thank you to Brooke Albrecht who put together my lovely cover and to Will Parkinson who set up the cover reveal. :) And to YOU for stopping by to check it out. Isn't it pretty? <3

Book Name: Most Beautiful Words
Author Name: Raine O’Tierney
Cover Artist: Brooke Albrecht
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press


Twelve-year-old Autumn's world is shattered when her beloved Great-Pop, Tommy Johnson, suffers a stroke that leaves him comatose. With everyone around her resigning themselves to the inevitable, Autumn is the only one not willing to give up. She and Great-Pop have more secret stories to share with each other, after all. More stories about Roy McMillan—the great love of Tommy's life whom he lost fifty years ago.

Autumn struggles to keep Great-Pop on this side of death's door. But how can she compete with the beautiful and mysterious Valley—a place of surreal magic where the sun never fully sets? Especially when there's someone familiar in the Valley who will do everything he can to keep Great-Pop from returning to her.


“So what’s my prize?”

“I’m gonna let you kiss me,” Roy said with a big, devious smile.

“Yeah?” Tommy asked, thinking he was being put on. “All right, I guess I’ll take the consolation prize then.”

“That leaves me with the grand prize by default.”

And he leaned in, and as sweet as anything Tommy had experienced in his whole life, Roy kissed his slightly parted lips. Even when Tommy stiffened, Roy did not pull back. Instead, slowly and deliberately, he gathered Tommy to him with a hold that was loose enough for him to escape from, but tight enough to be a real, romantic embrace. He kissed Tommy until he had to draw breath, and even then he did not let him go all the way.

“You… really wanted to?” Tommy asked, his head spinning. In that moment he had a single, solitary regret. It wasn’t coming out here to shoot arrows, and it wasn’t that he hadn’t pulled out of Roy’s embrace or even that he’d been kissed. It was that he hadn’t kissed Roy first. Because Tommy liked the kissing. A lot. And he wanted to do it more.

  1. It might be a cliché and perhaps so many people will say the same thing but I think the most beautiful words that I have heard is that 'I love you' and the wonderful feeling that overcomes you when they are said for the first time and you feel the same and respond, and then each time from then on. What a soppy romantic!

    Oh but the description of the story looks so sad even the beautiful cover where I imagine its Tommy so alone after loosing his great love Roy. Thank you for a chance to win your book.
