SILVER by Talia Vance (Flux, September 8, 2012)

 Beauty is pointless when no one's looking.

Brianna Paxton has been invisible to guys since the eighth grade. She’s pretty enough, it’s just that no one bothers to look. There’s almost nothing that can’t be explained with science, and Brianna has a theory: she’s missing the pheromone that attracts people to one another. Brianna’s theory is shot to hell in one frozen, silver moment, when time stops and Blake Williams not only sees her, he recognizes something inside her that she’s been hiding from even herself.

Before Brianna fully understands who and what she is, she accidentally binds her soul to Blake. Forced to find a way to reconcile forbidden love and her bloody heritage, Brianna discovers that there's nothing pointless about her, and Blake may be in the most danger of all.

But wait there's more:  In addition to the great prizes you can win by completing the questions at the end of this leg of the race, I am going to give away three pre-orders of Silver to three lucky North American resident who leave a comment here! Leave a comment and then check back on May 9, to see if you are a winner!  And don't forget to add Silver to Goodreads.
