Trailer Tuesday: The Jewel

I love reading books by new authors.  You never know what you're going to get. They have unlimited potential, so of course this trailer made me excited for the book. Plus and an author that I really like gave it 5 stars, so it does have that going for it.  My only problem is the cover makes it look like it's book 4 in The Selection series, which isn't doing it any favors.  Still, check it out. and let me know if it makes it on to your too read list.

The Jewel means wealth. The Jewel means beauty. The Jewel means royalty. But for girls like Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Not just any kind of servitude. Violet, born and raised in the Marsh, has been trained as a surrogate for the royalty—because in the Jewel the only thing more important than opulence is offspring.

Purchased at the surrogacy auction by the Duchess of the Lake and greeted with a slap to the face, Violet (now known only as #197) quickly learns of the brutal truths that lie beneath the Jewel’s glittering facade: the cruelty, backstabbing, and hidden violence that have become the royal way of life.
Violet must accept the ugly realities of her existence... and try to stay alive. But then a forbidden romance erupts between Violet and a handsome gentleman hired as a companion to the Duchess’s petulant niece. Though his presence makes life in the Jewel a bit brighter, the consequences of their illicit relationship will cost them both more than they bargained for.  Quoted from Goodreads
