About this author

JUS ACCARDO spent her childhood reading and learning to cook. Determined to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps as a chef, she applied and was accepted to the Culinary Institute of America. But at the last minute, she realized her true path lay with fiction, not food.

Jus is the bestselling author of the popular Denazen series from Entangled publishing, as well as the Darker Agency series, and the New Adult series, The Eternal Balance. A native New Yorker, she lives in the middle of nowhere with her husband, three dogs, and sometimes guard bear, Oswald.

I’ve put this post off for over a week now, worried that, like so many times before, something would happen to steal away this newfound feeling of lightness. Of peace. But, I think it’s time to accept that we’ve been granted a miracle. A disastrous and seriously disheartening post-chemo PET scan for my Mom turned things bleak for several weeks. The doctors believed they’d found more cancer. But...

“He sat up straight, eyes wide, and touched the tip of his index finger to his cheek. "What was that?"
I blushed. "A kiss."
"That's what a kiss feels like?"
"Well, technically. There are a lot of different types of—"
"Show me."
"Show you what?"
"Show me some other kinds."
"You're asking me to kiss you?"

“Current relationship status?” Her voice cut like an arctic chill blowing through the room.
“If you mean me, then you’re not my type. If you mean my dad, he’s single, but I don’t think you’re his type either,” I said with a small smile. Mercy didn’t find it amusing. A small blue vein in her forehead started throbbing like crazy....“Actually, come to think of it, I don’t think he has a type. I’ve never seen him with a woman.
Mercy, I hate to break it to you, but there’s a very real possibility my dad is gay.”

“I backed us up against the wall. “How I feel? You want to know?” I ran my hands over his face and tangled them into his messy hair. “This is unlike anything else. I’ve bungeed off buildings, I’ve skateboarded off roofs. I’ve even gone train surfing. Nothing comes close to the high I feel when I’m with you. You’ve been through horrible things, and yet you’re one of the kindest, truest people I’ve ever met. At first I thought it was because you were
safe. I could feel something for you because you couldn’t hurt me. Not the way Alex did. But it’s more than that. It’s you. Who you are. The way you are. Everything from your smile to the way you always say exactly what’s on your mind. Your soul, Kale.”

Mada I've read and reviewed(on my blog, in Romanian) Touch a few months ago and now I think I'm going to die until september :)). The days seem so long until Toxic is released. Can't wait to read it.
I absolutely loved Touch, Kale and Dez. They were amazing and you are an awesome writer. Touch is fabulous.

Aww, thank you so much! So glad you're enjoying. I don't have a date for the Hungarian release yet, but I'd imagine it's 2013 :)


Krisztina Hello Jus,
Thanks for accepting my friend request. I'm reading now Touch and I can't tell you, how I love this story! It is amazing! And Kale.. how can be a character so doubled-personality? Together a relentless "assassin" and a so naive young boy? You make my days, when I read his questions and his reactions for everything.
Although I haven't finished the first book, but I have bought Untouched yet and tomorrow I will pre-order Toxic as well!
I hope Hungarian release is not so far away, so my friends can read this novel soon - many of them wait for it impatiently:).
Thanks for this great book and this wonderful experience!
Huggles,
Kriszti from Hungary
