Punished Release Day!

Hi All,

I hope you're having a happy Monday, because it's the release day for Punished and as such, a very happy day for me indeed! :)
I've been waiting for this day for a long time... and it's finally here!

You can buy it on Amazon here, Barnes and Noble here and KOBO here.

In case you haven't seen the cover yet, here it is:

If ever there was a cover true to its book... it's this one.

Without further ado, here's a short snippet from Punished:

       Soon Leila was dancing with a strange man, but Mary didn’t care. She kept dancing, kept enjoying the rare moment where worry didn’t weigh heavily on her heart and spirit. Now, she could be sexy, could finally feel good about herself and let others see
        A hand grabbed the back of her shirt and pulled her back, causing her to stumble. Layers of dancers gyrated between her and Leila, whose eyes were on the redheaded man she swayed with.               Good. Mary didn’t want her to worry.
        She turned to face whoever had grabbed her.
        It was the dark man. She’d been right—his eyes were as black as the starless sky outside.
        Mary didn’t care that her head didn’t quite reach his shoulder, or how he was almost twice as wide as her. She shoved him back, hard. She was done being manhandled. No man would ever touch her again without her permission. He actually stumbled, and he smiled. It was a real smile, with dimples that could barely be seen from behind his stubble.
          You won’t be able to hear me, he signed.
          He could sign?
          You and your sister need to leave.


What do you think?
Seriously, I'd love to know you guys' opinion about the excerpt and the book itself. And please, if you do read it, please write an honest review!
