The Rules: Choose a cover (or two, or three), preferably new-ish, and share what you like about it. Grab my graphic or don’t (just so long as you link back). I’ll be posting Cover Love every Monday but feel free to post yours on whichever day works best for you.
|I like the girly-ness of this cover. I’m really diggin’ the growing para chick lit trend.
I like the wolf. Duh. 😉
The puffy clouds and moon pulls everything together nicely.
|Flirting Under a Full Moon
Flirting With Fangs Trilogy #1
by Ashlyn Chase
April 1, 2013
Cocktail waitress Brandee Hanson has just been dumped via a text message. Dejected, she sits down with psychic Sadie who offers to cheer her up with a free tarot card reading. Sadie gets a premonition that Brandee’s true love is about to walk into her life. Brandee watches the door and in walks “One Night Nick.” A handsome playboy. Just what she doesn’t need.
Nick Wolfensen is a werewolf and a paranormal private detective. He and Brandee have been attracted to each other and flirting for some time. Brandee is put off my Nick’s reputation. He’s called “One Night Nick,” for a reason. What people don’t know is that he’s avoiding emotional involvement so he’ll be free when he meets his true mate.
His latest case is time sensitive, so he consults the psychic who practices out of a booth in his favorite bar. He’s been hired to find a kidnapping victim who has her own paranormal ability, although she’s unaware of it. The pre-teen is a fire-starter. Her power will erupt during the first solar eclipse after she reaches puberty—in other words, in nine days. Sadie narrows down the location of the girl to the theater district.
Cocktail waitress Brandee overhears enough to know that Nick is talking about her little cousin Katie who’s gone missing. Who else has white hair at the age of twelve? She wants to help, but he sees her as only getting in the way. Brandee’s passion is photography, and when she’s on her own time she can go wherever she wants, right? How can he tell her not to practice her techniques for taking night photos on her evenings off? So, she shadows him.
When Nick shifts into a wolf to use his powerful sense of smell, Brandee can’t believe her eyes. She tries to convince herself it’s just a trick of the light, but she doesn’t really believe that. Her camera will tell her the truth, so she snaps a few pictures.
|This cover is absolutely stunning. I’m not a big fan of angels but I like this one.
Check out the tat on her leg! I missed it the first time around. Very cool!
Is it just me or does the model’s body position look unnatural? I think her legs & arms could have been arranged a bit better.
|The Second Sign
by Elizabeth Arroyo
February 7, 2013
|Bred to believe in the war between angels and demons, Gabby has come to the conclusion that love is responsible for war, jealousy, and all the other deadly sins she can think of. So when she’s exiled to the middle of nowhere for getting kicked out of her fifth school for fighting, she doesn’t expect to meet Jake. Much less fall in love. But Jake is quickly drawn to the eerie beauty of her violet eyes while Gabby is unsettled by their undeniable connection.
When a demon guardian comes to collect her soul, she refuses to give it up. She’s not a demon. She can’t be. Her father and twin brother are angels. The demon gives Gabby twenty-four hours to decide her allegiance, and then starts killing her short list of friends, leaving a message behind: She is the Second Sign.
As Gabby and Jake begin to unravel the mystery behind the Second Sign, she learns Jake may be the key to saving her soul. But it means a sacrifice has to be made that will change their lives forever.
|You gotta love a chick who can pull off tight leather pants!
The air around the model looks like it’s bubbling with power. I like the glow, swirling leaves and her wild hair.
The sword is an attention grabber, that’s for sure!

|Spread throughout the dark corners of our world lies the Shadow World, a society of vampires who feed off the living. In Austin, Texas, one woman must rise from the ashes of tragedy and confront an ancient evil before it destroys everything she holds dear…
After a heartrending night of loss and blood, Miranda Grey-Solomon, vampire Queen of the South, now stands in the ruins of her life determined to pick up the pieces and move on. David, her husband and Prime, is missing and presumed dead, and Miranda is lost without her soul mate by her side…But she has little time to grieve as enemies both old and new emerge to test her yet again.
Between vampires trying to take advantage of a Queen without a Prime, incursions by a mysterious organization of humans calling themselves the Order of the Morningstar, and the continuing threat from those within the Shadow World who have already tried to destroy her, Miranda and her allies are running out of places to turn. In order to save her territory and the ones she loves, Miranda must look to the ancient past, to the first days of the vampire race, and uncover secrets about the Signets that could change the course of history
