About The Guardians: Book Two in the MORE Trilogy


Ava’s life is . . . complicated.

After all, it’s not every day a girl learns she’s not entirely human, or unlocks hidden powers strong enough to make even the First Race sit up and take notice. After surviving an attempted kidnapping and standing up to the Race’s Ruling Council, Ava Michaels returns to college and what she hopes is a normal life. But Ava quickly realizes that for her, normal may not even exist anymore.

In fact, the Council wants her under their control, and they’re not the only ones. The mysterious Rogues have a plan of their own, and it turns out Ava’s a big part of it, whether she wants to be or not.

On top of that, her new relationship is tested in ways she never expected. Her boyfriend, Caleb Foster, has disappeared—accused of betraying the Race—and Ava herself stands implicated in a crime she didn’t commit.

Clearing their names will mean uncovering a web of deceit and intrigue with Ava woven right in the center. To unravel the strands, she joins forces with some unlikely allies; a Protector who once haunted her nightmares, a young girl with secrets as unexpected as Ava’s, and a group of rebel Guardians who have their own fight against the Council.

Together they stand in a battle to find the truth, bring Caleb home, and secure Ava’s freedom—not to mention save her life.

T.M. Franklin’s Guest Post:

When I’m Not Writing…

Like most (if not all) authors, I do love to read when I’m not writing. It can be a challenge to find time when you’re actually working on a manuscript, though. I also like to stay away from books in my genre while I’m writing—especially books with similar themes—to avoid being influenced in any way.

I enjoy a lot of different genres, but I find lately when I invest in buying a book, it tends to be young adult. Here are some of my faves at the moment.

Yes, yes, YES! I am addicted to this series. I read Divergent and Insurgent, by Veronica Roth, in about a weekend this summer and at this writing am anxiously awaiting the final book in the series. (Although by the time this posts, I will hopefully have read it and flailed sufficiently about how much I loved it!)

Another series I’m enjoying is this one by Stephanie Perkins. Anna and the French Kiss is my absolute favorite (Etienne. Swoon.) but I loved Lola too. Isla doesn’t come out until next year (Sob!) so I’m counting down the days!

 I started reading the Outlander series years ago, and I think I paused after Drums of Autumn. Lately, I’ve been feeling the urge to give this a go again, especially with word of the new TV series. Now, this isn’t YA, but it’s an amazing series – really well-written, but man, is it a commitment! These books are beefy (I think Outlander is 800+ pages) and when you start reading, you don’t want to stop!

When I need a laugh, it’s got to be the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich. These are books that never fail to make me laugh out loud (much to the annoyance of my husband.) I haven’t read Sizzling Sixteen yet, so that one’s probably next on my list.

Finally, since I published, I’ve gotten to know a lot of other authors, and I read their books when I have a chance. Some I’ve really enjoyed recently: Lessons Learned by Sydney Logan, Ghostwriter by Lissa Bryan, Where We Fell by Amber Johnson, and Sempre by JM Darhower. Can’t wait to read more from these talented ladies!

What books are you obsessing about lately? Let me know in the comments!


Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing the reads you’ve been enjoying, T.M.!

About the author:

T M Franklin author picT.M. Franklin started out her career writing non-fiction in a television newsroom. Graduating with a B.A. in Communications specializing in broadcast journalism and production, she worked for nine years as a major market television news producer, and garnered two regional Emmy Awards, before she resigned to be a full-time mom and part-time freelance writer. After writing and unsuccessfully querying a novel that she now admits, “is not that great,” she decided to follow the advice of one of the agents who turned her down—write some more and get better at it. Her first published novel, MORE, was born during National Novel Writing month, a challenge to write a novel in thirty days.

She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Mike, is mom to two boys, Justin and Ryan, and has an enormous black dog named Rocky who’s always lying nearby while she’s writing. Whether he’s soothed by the clicking of the computer keys or just waiting for someone to rub his belly is up for debate.

In addition to MORE and The Guardians, Franklin penned the Amazon best-selling short story, Window, as well as another short story, A Piece of Cake, which appears in the Romantic Interludes anthology.
