Blog Tour and Giveaway: Maven by S.A. Huchton

The Revolving Bookcase is pleased to feature an author and book new to us: Maven by S.A. Huchton! Despite having a jam-packed reading schedule after an amazing BEA this year, I read the blurb for this one and just had to read it - it combines two of my favorite genres: Sci-fi and New Adult Romance! How could anyone not be intrigued by that combination?! I didn't get a chance to finish it in time to post the review here, but I'm about a third of the way in, and I cannot wait to see what happens next. I'll get my full review posted sometime next week, so be sure to check back for that. But, for now, read on for some more information and a fantastic GIVEAWAY from the author!


Maven (The Endure Series, Book 1) S. A. Huchton June 3rd, 2013 284 pages (print)
How far would you go for love?

Since losing her parents at 14, young prodigy Dr. Lydia Ashley has focused on one thing: an appointment on the Deep Water Research Command Endure. Now 21, she’s about to realize that dream, but nothing is how she imagined it would be. Her transitional sponsor forgets her, her new lab is in complete chaos, and, as if that weren’t enough, she’s about to discover something so horrific it could potentially destroy all life on the planet. 

Daniel Brewer, a noted playboy and genius in his own right, may be exactly what she needs… Or he may make everything worse.

Has she finally found a puzzle she can’t solve?

  1. I haven't read a lot of sci-fi romance but I like the creativeness used to develop the story. The sci-fi romance books that I've read I have liked.
