BLOG TOUR - Run To You Series by Clara Kensie


 Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes!
This is my stop on the Run To You Series Blog Tour which is being hosted by YA Bound Book Tours!

(available February 1, 2014)

Part One in the riveting romantic thriller about a family on the run from a deadly past and a first love that will transcend secrets, lies and danger…

Sarah Spencer has a secret: her real name is Tessa Carson, and to stay alive, she can tell no one the truth about her psychically gifted family and the danger they are running from. As the new girl in the latest of countless schools, she also runs from her attraction to Tristan Walker—after all, she can’t even tell him her real name. But Tristan won’t be put off by a few secrets. Not even dangerous ones that might rip Tessa from his arms before they even kiss…


 (available February 8, 2014)

Tessa Carson has unlocked her heart and her secrets to Tristan Walker—but Tristan has secrets of his own, and his might just mean the end of Tessa’s family. Unaware, Tessa embraces falling in love and being herself for the first time since she was attacked when she was only eight years old. But secrets can’t be run from forever, and sometimes love is too good to be true…


(available February 15, 2014)

Betrayed, heartbroken, and determined to save her family, Tessa Carson refuses to give in to Tristan Walker’s pleas for forgiveness. But her own awakening psychic gift won’t let her rest until she uncovers the truth about her family and her past. And Tristan is the only one who can help her sift through the secrets to find the truth hidden in all the lies…

I had so much fun choosing my dream cast for RUN TO YOU! It took me a ridiculously long time, but I finally found my perfect cast:

Tristan, the charismatic, devoted hero:
Brenton Thwaites (The Giver, Maleficent)

Tessa, the guarded heroine with lots of secrets:

Taissa Farmiga (The Bling Ring, American Horror Story)

Jillian, Tessa’s rebellious big sister:
 Sasha Pieterse (Pretty Little Liars)

Logan, Tessa’s rational little brother:
Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson, The Perks of Being a Wallflower)

Wendy, Tessa’s distressed mom:

Nina Siemaszko (West Wing)

Andy, Tessa’s careworn dad:
Jeremy Davies (Lost, Justified)

Dennis Connelly, the villain:
 Ed Harris (too many movies to list)

Now that I’ve chosen my dream cast, I can’t stop looking at them! What do you think?

About the Author
Clara Kensie grew up near Chicago, reading every book she could find and using her diary to write stories about a girl with psychic powers who solved mysteries. She purposely did not hide her diary, hoping someone would read it and assume she was writing about herself. Since then, she’s swapped her diary for a computer and admits her characters are fictional, but otherwise she hasn’t changed one bit.

Today Clara is the author of romantic paranormal thrillers for young adults. Her first book, RUN TO YOU, a three-part serial from Harlequin TEEN, begins February 1 2014 with weekly releases. The sequel, also a three-part serial, begins June 1 2014.

Her favorite foods are guacamole and cookie dough. But not together. That would be gross.

  1. Thanks for having me on your blog today, Jen! I loved picking my dream cast. I've known these characters for about four years, and, with the exception of Ed Harris as Dennis Connelly, I'd never picked a cast for them until I wrote this post. I literally spent an entire afternoon sifting through IMBD and Google to find the perfect people. The hardest to cast were Tessa and Tristan. It was agonizing! Taissa Farmiga and Brenton Thwaites aren't that well-known yet, but soon they will be. And now, no matter how famous they become and how many movies they make, they will always be Tessa and Tristan to me. :-)

  2. I LOVE Taissa Farmiga and she is so close to what I saw in my head as I read. Great post!

  3. Wow, allodoxophobia! That's amazing! I've been a fan of Taissa's since season one of American Horror Story. I don't know why it didn't occur to me back then that she would be perfect for Tessa. I hope she becomes a big star!

  4. Great post! Love the cast, especially Tristan :) I've heard lots of great things about this series and am so in love with the cover design.. I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed here :) Thanks so much for the awesome post and for hosting the contest :)
