Cover Lover – Vengeance Road

It has been a week or two of cover reveals, and this time around it is Christine Feehan‘s Vengeance Road. This is the second book of her Torpedo Ink series, and it will be released on January 29th. I really do like this cover the more that I stare at it – and yes, I have been staring.

Breezy Simmons was born into a ruthless motorcycle club—and now that she’s out, she’s never going to be that girl again. But when her past catches up with her, Breezy must go to Sea Haven to seek out the man who almost destroyed her. The man who chose his club over her and left her feeling used and alone.

As vice president of Torpedo Ink, Steele is ride or die for the brothers he lived through hell with. He never thought he’d find something as pure as his feelings for Breezy, or that keeping her safe would mean driving her away with cruel words that turned her love for him to ash.

Now, Steele won’t let her walk away twice. He’ll do whatever it takes to make Breezy his woman again—especially when he learns the real reason she came to him for help, and that the stakes are higher than he ever could have imagine.

Ok. I have to say it. Breezy? Uh, sure. I have heard worse names (as long as she doesn’t control the wind. Then all bets are off). Lora Leigh has some doozies – Gypsy Rum and Candy Sweet McQuade come to mind – but Christine has a couple of eye-rollers, too. Airiana the Air elemental always makes me snicker. What are your most cringe-worthy character names? Any that stand out?

    The Black Dagger brotherhood names. I can’t. And I won’t.

    Simply because they had no backing. And we’re kinda cartoonish.

      Surprisingly, I got used to the BDB names. The extra H in a few of them (like Ehlena, I think is how you spell it) did get on the nerves sometimes, though.

        You see I would have found it a regular practice if I fell for the characters. But I didn’t. I couldn’t make it to Zsadist and he was the only one I was very interested to meet.

    For me, as far as Feehan goes at least, it’s her use of ‘honey’.  Every female lead she writes calls her man ‘honey’.  I think my eyes got stuck rolling back reading Dark Sentinel!  LOL!!  Been a fan for years, but come on…………….

      I call that a Feehanism. I caught the whole “Honey” thing a while back, and it bugs me big time. It makes me feel that pretty much all of her female leads sounded the same, had the same kind of voice. Add in that they all lived to learn to cook for their man, dressed the same, and all had long, dark hair, and voila. Feehanism.

    Isn’t weird names the usual American thing? I’m not surprised to see it in American books. I mean, these are the people who name their children after food, places, events etc. and that’s just the names in English.
