Jill Daugherty's Courage Series Virtual Book Tour @samijolien @jilldaugherty)

 Courage and Other Demons (Book 1) Synopsis:

The end of the world will start in the suburbs of Denver with a faery transfer student from 

Ireland. If you think that’s totally ridiculous, then you understand how Maggie O’Neill feels. In all 

of her sixteen years, faeries were something you read about in children’s books. They didn’t 

actually show up on your doorstep. They didn’t kiss you and make your knees go weak and 

whisper sweet nothings in your ear. Until Simon Brady, that is. Simon changed everything. He 

makes her heart race and her skin burn with excitement, but he has also changed her core 

beliefs about the world and made her see it as a dark and dangerous place filled with monsters 

that belong only in the lines of faery tales. There is no doubt in Maggie’s mind that she loves 

Simon, but can she see past who he is and find a place for him in her heart?

Cassandra's review-  The taste for a paranormal romance that is not too out of the box is satisfied with this read. The characters are believable and easy to follow.  The story will leave off with you having to read book two or wait forever not knowing....  

Abandoned Courage (Book 2) Synopsis:

Maggie O’Neill had a rough junior year… She fell in love with Simon. She found out Simon was 

a faery. She spent some time with her dead ancestors. An evil faery with control issues came 

after her and brought his groupies to kill her. …but that was nothing compared to what’s in store 

for senior year. She’s the new girl at faery boarding school and is subjected to something she 

never thought she’d have to deal with in her entire life—mean girls. To make matters worse, 

she’s seeing less and less of Simon, her faery guard is smothering her in their efforts to protect 

her, and the evil faery is still stalking her, determined to kill her before she can kill him. She 

starts to wonder if she’ll make it to graduation. Then the unthinkable happens and she wonders 

if she’ll be able to survive even one more day.
Defining Courage (Book 3) Synopsis: 

Eighteen-year-old Maggie O’Neill is a high school dropout. If her parents knew, they’d probably 

kill her, but that’s the least of her worries. Balor—the evil faery from hell—is still stalking her, 

someone is still betraying her, and the mean girl at school is still mean. The worst part of her 

life, however, is figuring out how to live it without Simon. Will Maggie discover a way to defeat 

Balor? Will she ever be able to out-snark the mean girl? Will she find Simon? Tune in next 

week—uh, read the book—to find out.

Jill Daugherty lives in Denver with Bailey, the world's cutest dog. By day, she works with gifted 

children and their teachers. By night, she writes. A lot. She is the author of the Courage series, 

which has received glowing reviews. At the insistence of her readers, she has started work on a 

spin-off series.

Find the fortune, break the curse!
The hunt is on for an ancient treasure tied to nine-year-old J.B.’s family history. He’s been having visions that make him sweaty, lightheaded, and certain he’s turning into some kind of freak—or worse, going insane. But things are worse than he imagined. The visions stem from a family curse. An ancient ancestor was accused of stealing the massive Granville fortune, and now J.B.’s entirely family will suffer.
To break the curse, J.B. must find and return the Granville’s stolen property. But he’s not the only one searching for the treasure. As he sets out on his journey through a dark and foreboding forest, he’ll battle his worst fears and fight terrifying creatures along the way. And when he meets two others who share the missing pieces of his visions and suffer from the same curse, the three soon realize they need to work together to break the curse before it’s too late.

Samantha Verant
Samantha Vérant is a travel addict, a self-professed oenophile, and a determined, if occasionally unconventional, French chef. Over the years, she’s visited many different countries, lived in many places, and worked many jobs— always on the search for the one thing that truly excited her. Then, one day, she found everything she’s been looking for: a passion for the written word and true love. Writing not only enabled her to open her heart, it led her to southwestern France, where she’s now married to a sexy French rocket scientist she met over twenty years ago, a stepmom to two incredible kids, and the adoptive mother to one ridiculously expensive Bengal cat. When she’s not trekking from Provence to the Pyrénées, tasting wine in American-sized glasses, or embracing her inner Julia Child while deliberating what constitutes the perfect boeuf bourguignon, Samantha is making her best effort to relearn those dreaded conjugations.
