Cover Coveting()

Wow!! I’m so behind on all the latest covers!! It’s amazing when you’re doing one thing to update your blog all the posts just seem to get out of control.  So you might be seeing heavy cover spamming for a bit.

Also notice that the Author’s Thoughts bit is going goodbye.  It’s to hard to haunt down what the authors think, and often times they don’t have anything to say. (There’s still quite a few kinks here. So, sorry about that!

All cover art is not final!

Love the creepy green/swamp feel of this cover. The best colors are always picked!

So she heads south to a swanky beach town, along with her baby sister, Bria, for a weekend of fun in the sun. But when an old friend of Bria’s is threatened by a powerful vampire with deadly elemental magic, it looks like Gin will have to dig the silverstone knives out of her suitcase after all. But this time, her special powers might not be enough to prevent her from coming home in a pine box…

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Jane Jameson, Book 4

Shera’s Thoughts: 

Clearly the sexiest of the covers yet!

Book Description:

Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of all things marital, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend Gabriel are coming along smoothly. But the road to wedded bliss gets bumpy when a teenage acquaintance is fatally wounded in front of Jane’s shop and she turns him to save his life. The Council pronounces Jane responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

Jane’s kitchen at River Oaks barely holds enough Faux Type O to satiate the cute teen’s appetite and maintain Gabriel’s jealous streak at a slow simmer. As if keeping her hyperactive childe from sucking the blood out of the entire neighborhood isn’t enough to deal with, the persnickety ghost of Jane’s newly deceased Grandma Ruthie has declared a war on the fanged residents of River Oaks. Suddenly, choosing monogrammed cocktail napkins and a cake that she can’t eat seems downright relaxing in comparison.

Tensions inside the house are growing…and outside, a sinister force is aiming a stake straight for the center of Gabriel’s heart. Most brides just have to worry about choosing the right dress, but Jane fears that at this rate, she’ll never make it down the aisle for the wedding all nice girls dream of…

Thanks for posting the cover for WICKED AS THEY COME! There is actually a steampunk circus, and plenty of blood. But no horror, unless you count the vampire rabbits.

Glad to post it. It's a most interesting cover.
