April & May Cover Of The Month

May 2, 2009

Since I didn’t get a Cover of the Month posted for April I’m going to have 2 Cover of the Months this month.

the first Cover Of The Month is…

Bad to the Bone by Jeri-Smith Ready


Turn On. Tune In. Drop Dead.

If you’re just joining us, welcome to radio station WVMP, “The Lifeblood of Rock ’n’ Roll.” Con-artist-turned-station-owner Ciara Griffin manages an on-air staff of off-the-wall DJs—including her new boyfriend Shane McAllister—who really sink their teeth into the music of their ‘Life Time” (the era in which they became vampires). It’s Ciara’s job to keep the undead rocking, the ratings rolling, and the fan base alive—without missing a beat.

For Halloween, WVMP is throwing a bash sure to raise the dead. They’ve got cool tunes, hot costumes, killer cocktails—what could go wrong? Well, for starters, a religious firebrand ranting against the evils of the occult preempts the station’s midnight broadcast. Then, when Ciara tracks down the illegal transmission, the broadcast tower is guarded by what appears to be…a canine vampire? And behind it all is a group of self-righteous radicals who think vampires suck (and are willing to stake their lives on it).

Now Ciara must protect the station while struggling with her own murky relationship issues, her best friend’s unlikely romance with a fledgling vampire, and the nature of her mysterious anti-holy powers. To make it to New Year’s in one piece, she’ll need to learn a few new tricks.…”

Why did I choose this cover? Well, you all know I love dogs, so seeing a Mastiff on the cover (I think it’s a Mastiff, forgive me if I’m wrong) of a book just makes it even better and it sorta looks like Bear aka Bubba Dog… okay maybe not, but if the dog had big floppy ears and didn’t look so mean then it would… hey I can dream right? 😀 Plus, I really like the whole “smokey-fog-dark” effect.

This book isn’t even released yet… the release date is May 19, 2009! I’m so excited because it’s only 5 days after my birthday so I’m definately going to be going out to buy it along with the first in the series, Wicked Game.

the second Cover Of The Month is…

Burning Alive by Shannon K. Butcher


“There are worse ways to die…

They are the Sentinels. Three races descended from ancient guardians of mankind, each possessing unique abilities in their battle to protect humanity against their eternal foes–the Synestryn. Now, one warrior must fight his own desire if he is to discover the power that lies within his one true love…

For too long, Helen Day has been haunted by visions of her own death, surrounded by flames as a dark-haired man watches her burn. So when she sees the man of her nightmares staring at her across a diner, she attempts to flee–and ends up in the man’s arms. There, she awakens a force more powerful and enticing than she could ever imagine.

The instant the Theronai warrior Drake touches Helen, the anguish he has borne for years fades away. He is determined to know why this beautiful, fearful woman has such power over him. The answer lies in his very blood–and in Helen’s as well. For together, they may become more than lovers–they may become a weapon of light that could tip the balance of the war–and save Drake’s people…”

Why did I choose this cover? Two things… first of all there’s a hot, sizzling, half-naked man… second there’s a sword… nothing better then a man holding a sword… am I right? 🙂

This is the first book in an all new-series called The Sentinel Wars Burning Alive releases in just a few days… on May 5th! I’m looking forward to seeing what the future covers are going to look like… 🙂
