Defy 
(Malice #3) 
by Amity Hope
Publication date: May 29th 2015
Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult

Tristan and Samara have been best friends since they were kids. Somewhere along the way that friendship turned into something deeper. Sam knew Tristan better than anyone…but as it turned out, she didn’t know him as well as she thought she did. Now that Tristan’s secrets are out—and he’s embraced his magic—there should be nothing standing in their way.
But in the small town of Granite Falls, where magic abounds, life is never simple.
The Council is out for revenge.
So is Tristan’s father.
Sam, Tristan, and their friends just might get swept away in an age-old magical battle. A battle where the “good guys” might not be so good.

Do you read the same kinds of books that you write? What authors have influenced you?

I have a fairly eclectic taste in books. I like a little bit of everything: Romance, mystery, suspense, and of course, I read a lot of young adult romance.
That said, my favorite genre is young adult. I read a good mix of both YA contemporary romance and paranormal romance.
Most of the books I’ve published to date have been YA contemporary romance. However, paranormal is by far my favorite. I love books that can pull you out of everyday life. I think paranormal romance does that in a way that no other genre can. There is just so much more an author can do with paranormal romance. They can really take the reader anywhere.

My favorite authors are Kim Harrison and Richelle Mead. I’ve read everything they’ve written. I’ve actually read several of their books twice. That’s not something I do often because my TBR pile (like everyone else’s) grows by the day. I believe that of all of the books I’ve read, these two authors have influenced me the most. I aspire to someday be as wonderful at world building and storytelling as these two amazing ladies are.


Malice (book1) is free and Avenge (book 2) is only .99 cents
