~Photo Friday~ Misleading

Angel's Trumpet 

These grew wild in my garden in Maryland. I described them to my mom and she said I should look them up because it sounded like Angel's Trumpet. They're sometimes called Devil's Trumpet. Why? 

This beautiful flower contains a dangerous toxin, as it is related to deadly nightshade. In fact, every part of this plant contains the toxin.

Book Trivia: Due to this flower's deceptive appearance, I featured it on the very first mock-up of one of my book covers. Which book was it? The commenters with the correct answer will be entered to win an eBook copy of the book in question. Entries will be accepted until 11:59pm (eastern time), January 31. The winner will be announced the following day. Everyone is eligible, provided you are willing/able to download from Smashwords.com. 


As always, happy reading, writing, and blogging! 

For more info on Datura and its physical/psychological effects, this Wikipedia article is surprisingly informative, with plenty of reliable sources.

I already own Deception, so I'm not in this to win it. I really just wanted to say that I enjoyed the book and thanks for writing. :)
