Hmm, I have been hoping for a really, really good cover to post for the last month or so, since this last while has been a bit iffy. Some have been ok, some cheesy, and some downright ass-ugly. Pretty much what I have found this go round, actually.
I actually don’t mind this first one…pretty, but sort of a flashback to the old historical romance bodice-rippers of yore (Lord, did I just yore in a sentence?!?). Er, yeah, so this is Winterblaze from Kristen Callihan‘s Darkest London series, which is due out on February 26th.
I am not quite sure about this one. I don’t hate it, but it seems to be going for the same vibe as Winterblaze (above), but doesn’t quite pull it off. I am not sure if it is the grainy effect, or the bad font for the title, but Gilded, the second book from Karina Cooper‘s St. Croix Chronicles, isn’t a great cover. It will be hitting the shelves on December 26th.
This one is Jaguar Fever, the second book from Terry Spear‘s new Jaguar series. I actually don’t mind this one, since the photoshopping is well done and everything is clear and easy to read. Pretty much standard, with intense shirtless dude, smoke and animal in the background, but it works unlike the next one…
Yep, saved this one for last. Good lord, this is so very, very wrong. I think that Pamela Palmer‘s A Love Untamed holds the distinction being the only book whose cover model scares me. There’s intense, and then there’s serial killer mug shot scary. I stopped reading this series a while back, and this one won’t make me want to pick it up again. This Feral Warriors novel will be released on December 26th.
