Blog Tour: 25 Days of Book Boyfriends: Jackson Deveaux (Character Profile +Excerpt + Giveaway)


Welcome to my stop on the 25 Days of Book Boyfriends Blog Tour hosted by Teresa of Readers Live A Thousand Lives, Jessica of Lovin Los Libros, and Chelsea of Starbucks & Books Obsession

I am very pleased to introduce you all to my book boyfriend: Jackson Deveaux!
The only guy I have eyes for in The Arcana Chronicles by Kresley Cole.

Full tour schedule here.


#1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole introduces The Arcana Chronicles, post-apocalyptic tales filled with riveting action, the dark mysticism of Tarot cards, and breathtaking romance.She could save the world—or destroy it.

Sixteen year old Evangeline “Evie” Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future—and they’re still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux.

But she can’t do either alone.

With his mile-long rap sheet, wicked grin, and bad attitude, Jack is like no boy Evie has ever known. Even though he once scorned her and everything she represented, he agrees to protect Evie on her quest. She knows she can’t totally depend on Jack. If he ever cast that wicked grin her way, could she possibly resist him?

Who can Evie trust?

As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of twenty-two teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it’s not always clear who is on which side….

Excerpt
He shook his head hard. "Non. Got something I need to say, me."                                 
I'd never seen him this brooding. "Go on, I'm listening."                                               
"When you got captured, I didn't know..." He trailed off. "If it'd be like..."                   
"Oh, Jackson, no. I was okay. I'm unharmed."                                                               
"Didn't know if I'd get there too late," he said with a shudder. Then he crossed over to me, until we stood toe-to-toe. "Evie, if you ever get taken from me again, you better know that I'll be coming for you." He cupped my face with a bloodstained hand. "So you stay the hell alive! You doan do like Clotile, you doan take that way out. You and me can get through anything, just give me a chance" -his voice broke lower- "just give me a change to get to you." He buried his face in my hair, inhaling deeply. "There is nothing that can happen to you that we can't get past."                                                                                                   
I couldn't stop myself from asking, "When you say we...?"                                            
He pulled back, gazing down at me, his eyes blazing. "I'm goan to lay it all out there for you. Laugh in my face - I doan care. But I'm goan to get this off my chest."                                                                                                                                   
"I won't laugh. I'm listening."                                                                                          
 "Evie, I've wanted you from the first time I saw you. Even when you hated me, I wanted you." He raked his fingers through his hair. "I got it bad, me."
