Cover Lover – 4 New Titles

Just a couple of quick mentions before I get to the covers. I wanted first to thank the gals at All Things Urban Fantasy for inviting me to be a part of their Cover Art Coverage post this week. It was fun to have someone else do all the hunting and posting and just throw in my two cents, for what they were worth. Also, my updating of the release dates for 2013 will be complete tomorrow night, so if there were any books you had your heart set on you might want to check and see if the release dates changed. There were a few that were pushed back, and a few disappeared entirely (like Kresley Cole‘s second Dacians book).

On to the covers. I am a bit lazy tonight, so looks like it will be only four for this post. This first one is from author Jaime Rush, and it is the prequel novella for her new series starting up later this year called The Hidden. The novella is called Dragon Mine, and it will be released on June 4th.

This second one is from Dani Harper. She is starting a couple of new series this year (and then returning to her Changeling series), and this cover is for First Bite. It kicks off her Dark Wolf series, and it will be released on October 15th.

Number three caught my eye right away, and is my favorite of the group. The second book of Amy Raby‘s new Hearts and Thrones series, Spy’s Honor, will be released on October 1st.

And finally for tonight is the cover for Shadow’s Curse, the second book in Alexa Egan‘s Imnada Brotherhood series, which will be out on September 24th.

New Series Alert…

Man, things are so screwed up that I forgot it was Monday, so it is a bit late for the New Series Alert post.  This first new one is from Alexa EganDemon’s Curse is the first book of the Imnada Brotherhood.

demon's curseSynopsis…

A rising star on the Covent Garden stage, Bianca Parrino believes she has everything she wants. Independence. Wealth. And a life finally free of her violent, abusive husband. But when her close friend, Adam, is murdered, and Bianca is suspected in his death, she is unwittingly drawn into the search for his killer, and soon must question everything she believes—about her friend, about herself, and about a world she never knew existed.

A member of the mysterious race of shape-shifting Imnada and part of an elite military unit, Captain Mac Flannery gathered intelligence during the Napoleonic wars. As a result of a savage massacre, Mac and the men he served with are cursed. Now one of them has been found murdered, and Mac suspects the existence of the Imnada has been discovered at last. His only link to unearthing the truth is the beautiful actress who turns up unexpectedly at Adam’s funeral.

Before long, Mac has more to contend with than Bianca’s overt mistrust, his ill-fated attraction to the haughty and beautiful actress, and his ongoing search for an end to the curse. Because Adam’s killer is back, and Mac is next on his list.

The Imnada Brotherhood reading list can be found HERE.

The second new one is the much anticipated Alien Huntress spin-off from Gena ShowalterLast Kiss Tonight is the first book of the Otherworld Assassin series.

last kiss goodnightSynopsis…

A twisted menagerie exists, and otherworlders are the main attraction. Any time this zoo is about to be shut down, it vanishes and reappears somewhere else. When Solo’s latest mission is compromised, he wakes up in a cage, the newest “animal” on display.

Vika is his new handler—as well as the zoo owner’s daughter, and she’s been tasked with Solo’s care and feeding. They are supposed to be enemies, but they become lovers… until his feelings for her are used against him, and he’s put to the ultimate test.

The Otherworld Assassin reading list is HERE.

Unfortunately, it also seems that this week brings the end of a series, as well.  Blood Winter has recently been announced as the last book of Diana Pharaoh Francis‘ Horngate Witches series.  Sales for the well written series just weren’t what they should be, according to the author.
