Gonna say it, there’s always something off about the men on the covers.

However, I still love it! This is a great couples cover. It definitely fits the series well.

It needs to be said. Total damsel cover.

Other then that minor complaint I love it!!! It’s so sweet and beautiful. Plus, it’s in total keeping with the series.

Add it: Goodreads | Amazon

Shera’s thoughts:

This is awesome-Urban-Fantasy-sauce! No boobs, butts, and other female parts trying to seduce readers. Nope this gritty cover pulls you in and punches you in the face!

Yes!

Shaman Rises by C.E. Murphy

shamanrises Series: Walker Papers, book 9

Love that the covers keep adding the Native American jewelry.  The brilliant white light is cool, but overall this cover isn’t stunning.

Fits the series well though.

skingame Series: The Dresden Files, book 15

Add it: Goodreads | Amazon

Shera’s thoughts:

Another series who’s covers make me happy! I love that each new cover still looks like Harry. Every time I see someone wearing one of those hats Harry is the first guy I think of!

the burning money is really awesome and the fact that he’s holding his staff and rocking the gun is nerd fodder!

Steal the Sun by Lexi Blake

Previous book(s) in series:

Goodreads | Amazon


steal_the_sun Series: Thieves, book 4

Add it: Goodreads | Amazon
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Shera’s thoughts:

Finally this series has success! This book is sexy!

It seems a little strange that her hair matches her dress, but it’s also a bold move.

Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins

Previous book(s) in series:

Goodreads | Amazon


Sweet Reckoning Series: The Sweet Trilogy, book 3 

Add it: Goodreads | Amazon
Genre: Paranormal Young Adult

Shera’s thoughts:

The success to a “dress cover” is how dramatic the colors are. The style of the dress is a yes! However, that color looks like she tried to bleach her red dress.

It’s OK and it fits the series well.

The Ring & the Crown by Melissa de la Cruz

Previous book(s) in series:

Goodreads | Amazon


The Ring and The Crown Series: N/A 

Add it: Goodreads | Amazon

Shera’s thoughts:

Stunning! Just wow! The flowers in the hair thing was part of Xia’s latest album and I love it on the girl.

The typography is simply amazing, the background is like a beautiful mosaic of colors.

The Sylph Hunter by L.J. McDonald

Previous book(s) in series:

Goodreads | Amazon


The Sylph Hunter Series: Sylph, Book 4

Add it: Goodreads | Amazon
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Shera’s thoughts:

Couple covers are always hard to do. This one is OK. But it’s trying to hard.

Just like this dance move translates out onto the dance floor, “I’m hot, do you understand! So sexy!” While the rest of the women in the room groan a little bit at the cheesiness of it all.

The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness

Add it: Goodreads | Amazon

Shera’s thoughts:

Gosh I love these covers. The text is right in front looking all cool! Then the covers! Ah! Just love the how the astrology charts are added to each new cover.

Well done. 

The Given by Vicki Pettersson

thegiven Series: Celestial Blues, book 3

Add it: Goodreads | Amazon

Shera’s thoughts:

Love that the woman on the cover is the only thing in color. The is hot, yet exceedingly creepy staring at her like that.

Love the positioning of the text and the font choice, makes it feel like an cold school mystery.

The Hunt by Stacey Kade

Shera’s thoughts:

Another example of how designs can really make a cover! Just looking at them you know it some has some type of magical air/weather theme. It utilizes silhouette nicely.
