It's important to build a little suspense in a cover reveal, right?
First the author's bio:
C. J. Anaya began writing short stories for family and friends when she was thirteen years old. This soon morphed into an extensive project every year during Christmas as a way to create a fun and inexpensive Christmas gift.
Her passion for reading and writing led her to following her own dreams of becoming a published author. She was born in Utah and raised everywhere else. She even lived a few years in Brazil, enjoying the people, the culture and learning the beautiful language of Portuguese; a language she is still fluent in to this day. As a result of her exposure to varying peoples and cultures, her interests became varied as well.
As a mother of four children she is now a singer and a songwriter, a baker and a cake decorator, a dancer and a choreographer, a girl with a degree in Criminal Justice and a first time published author of YA paranormal romance and fantasy. She is also married to the most deliciously, handsome looking Latino. As always, she has plenty to write about.

Now, this book is actually the second in a series! Did you know that?
Here, let me explain,... no, I take that back,
here is the book blurb:
Forced into a strange, dream-like state, Hope Fairmont is reliving her life as Mikomi, Princess of the Kagami Empire and The Healer of the world. Life as an Imperial Princess is rife with danger, betrayal and intrigue as Mikomi joins forces with a rebel group of samurai warriors in order to usurp the throne from her tyrannical father. To win this seemingly hopeless war, she must train with Musubi, a warrior in the rebel army, and learn the art of the sword without revealing her identity as The Healer.
Unbeknownst to her, Musubi has his own secret identity and personal agenda which carries dark consequences for Mikomi's future. Neither one can afford to share their secrets with each other. Nor can they ignore the powerful chemistry building between them.
To complicate things further, she must hide her dealings with the rebels from her betrothed, Masaru Katsu, who has arrived at the palace in order to train her in the art of healing the veil before she ascends as a full kami on her eighteenth birthday. Her betrothed is not the cold-hearted warrior god she expected, but how can she spend eternity with a deity she may never love? Determined to avoid the future her parents and Katsu have planned for her, she spies on her father and his generals, collecting intelligence for the rebel army in the hopes that one day all of Kagami will be free and the future will be hers to control.
