I need your attention right now.
I just finished a book. Only it wasn't just a book, it was a magic book. I mean, it's a book about magic, but it's also a book that IS magic! You know how there are a lot of books that you like, but there are only a few special books that you just want to read over and over? This is one of those books.
I LOVED Compulsion.
I finished it a couple of days ago, and I haven't been able to think of anything else! The setting. The Mystery. The characters. THE ROMANCE! It was just complete perfection.
So it is with GREAT PLEASURE that I kick off the I Have A Compulsion for Magic blog tour, and introduce you to this incredible book. But let me make something perfectly clear.
Eight. Belongs. To. Me.
So step off.
Ehem. Anyway. Where were we?
Oh yes. Compulsion.
Throughout the tour you'll find a variety of author guest posts. To go with the theme of Compulsion, and the tour theme, Martina Boone asked a few of her fellow author friends questions ranging from what kind of "every day" magic powers they wish they had to what magic powers do their characters wish they had, and more. You don't want to miss what authors like Leah Cypess, Jodi Meadows, Beth Revis, Megan Shepherd, Kimberly Derting, Kami Garcia and more have to say.
Want to get a sneak peak into Compulsion? Don't miss out on reading a couple excerpts, and finding out more about the characters, world, and the story Martina created. You can find out which tour hosts will be sharing interviews, and excerpts from Compulsion, here. Be sure to find out more about Compulsion, and see what authors Jennifer L. Armentrout, Wendy Higgins and Claudia Gray said about this amazing book.

(Heirs of Watson Island #1)
by Martina Boone
Simon & Schuster, Simon Pulse
Three plantations. Two gifts. One ancient curse.
All her life, Barrie Watson has been a virtual prisoner in the house where she lives with her shut-in mother. When her mother dies, Barrie promises to put some mileage on her stiletto heels. But she finds a new kind of prison at her aunt’s South Carolina plantation instead–a prison guarded by an ancient spirit who long ago cursed one of the three founding families of Watson Island and gave the others magical gifts that became compulsions.
Stuck with the ghosts of a generations-old feud and hunted by forces she cannot see, Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy. With the help of sun-kissed Eight Beaufort, who somehow seems to know what Barrie wants before she knows herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her family’s twisted secrets. What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a river that turns to fire at midnight, a gorgeous cousin who isn’t what she seems, and very real enemies who want both Eight and Barrie dead.
