MFT Book Giveaway: Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs

Maybe you’ve seen this gorgeous cover on shelves at the bookstore, or maybe you’ve seen the buzz around the blogosphere.  Whatever it may be, if you have been unable to get your hands on this one, here’s your chance!  Tracy Deebs is generously giving away one copy of Tempest Rising and some swag to one lucky person!


Tempest Maguire wants nothing more than to surf the killer waves near her California home; continue her steady relationship with her boyfriend, Mark; and take care of her brothers and surfer dad. But Tempest is half mermaid, and as her seventeenth birthday approaches, she will have to decide whether to remain on land or give herself to the ocean like her mother. The pull of the water becomes as insistent as her attraction to Kai, a gorgeous surfer whose uncanny abilities hint at an otherworldly identity as well. And when Tempest does finally give in to the water’s temptation and enters a fantastical underwater world, she finds that a larger destiny awaits herβ€”and that the entire ocean’s future hangs in the balance.

You can find Tracy Deebs on her website:

  1. I love this cover and have been looking forward to reading it. Thanks for the giveaway, count me in.


  2. Mermaids are definitely one of MFT! And that cover is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for the giveaway! (I’m not sure if I’m more excited about the book, or the swag :P)

  3. I can’t recall the last time I read a mermaid story, well aside from children’s picture books. Got to love Ariel. So please count me in.


  4. I love it when a writer tackles a mermaid tale! And this one seems to be an amazing one! I LOVE the cover and think the story inside it will be just as equally fascinating!

    Thank you for the giveaway!


  5. I have not read any mermaid books as of yet and for some reason have resisted it. I would love to win a copy of this book and see what it is all about. Thank you for sharing today and for the lovely giveaway opportunity.

  6. Great giveaway hon. Mermaids are a new creature for me. I never read a book about mermaids. But I have been hearing great stuff about this and yes, the cover is stunning. I am considering making it my desktop wallpaper. Great stuff, thank you hon :)
