Series & Cover Discovery

Yesterday I was happy to be directed to the new cover of Kresley Cole - Pleasure Of A Dark prince and it is making its way through blogosphere. Though like many of you it is a bit pink-ish my mind is in the gutter when it comes to the notion of the cover model's hand's being bound at his back. At Leslie we defintely thought it a possibility when a Valkyrie is involved *wink*

So I'll give my two cents in the cover discovery today. Sometimes a cover and series discovery go hand in hand and I just found myself one this week *lucky me* The first one is also a debuting author who I discovered this week via my RT magazine, just like Annette McCleave she instantly pigued my interest and I was off on an information hunt. I just love the bold colors and dark vibe coming off from the cover and of course the hunk in leather pants ain't doing wrong in this picture either :)

The war between good and evil has raged for millennia,but now evil is winning,and The Marked Souls are caught in the middle…

After an accident left her near death, Sera Littlejohn is struggling to piece her life together again. But when a violet-eyed stranger reveals a supernatural battle veiled in the shadows, Sera is tempted to the edge of madness by a dangerous desire.

Ferris Archer takes Sera under his wing now that she is talyan, possessed by a repentant demon with hellish powers. Archer and his league of warriors have long risked their demon-shattered souls to stop darker spirits from wreaking havoc. But they’ve never fought beside a female talya before, and never in all his centuries has Archer found a woman who captivates him like Sera.
With the balance shifting between good and evil, passion and possession, Sera and Archer must defy the darkness‹and dare to embrace a love that will mark them forever…

Thanks to Donna {Fantasy Dreamer} I did a quiz to find out by what demon I was possessed by and it was an interesting one:

An ENIGMA class demon has possessed you.
Secretly, you always knew good and evil were more than abstract concepts. Too bad you're proving it with your blood, tears and tattered, demon-mottled soul. Worse, now that your half-closed eyes have been blown wide open, you can't help but notice there are more mysteries lying in wait. Good and evil were easy compared to the intricacies of the human heart. You and Sera Littlejohn from SEDUCED BY SHADOWS, Book 1 of the Marked Souls, would take fiendish delight in torturing the narrow-minded alpha males around you. Hey, there should be some perks for eternal damnation.

The second cover discovery is one I made via Twitter (such a seductive source of information *wink*) I clicked on a link and hello, goodmorning and goodnight, come to mama...Nathan Kemp will always do it for me but I also love the tribal emblem surrounding the title. This cover is very pleasing for the eyes :D And though this is not a series I am really looking forward to reading this :D

Excerpt

Paperback: 352 pages
Publisher: Brava (December 29, 2009)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0758234287
ISBN-13: 978-0758234285


Cynthia Eden delves into the dark realms of the Others, where desires and dangerous games await the unsuspecting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Assistant DA Erin Jerome has a secret. Make that two. One: She's not entirely human-she's Other, desperately trying to keep her supernatural strength under wraps. Two: she's got a killer stalking her-an Other rogue set on "gifting" her bloody corpses, not to mention nights lying awake in terror. Small wonder she's been having bad luck with men.

But the bounty hunter on her new case isn't worried about any of that. Jude Donovan is a shapeshifter himself, and the new DA's midnight hair and addictive scent tell him all he thinks he needs to know: She's gorgeous, she's definitely not human, and she's bringing out the animal in him in a really good way. He might have to track a psychotic Other stalker through half of Louisiaian. But he might also get the chance to watch Erin's wild side come out and play.

  9. All of those look like great reads. I picked up a Kresley Cole book at the library mainly b/c of the cover-had a hard time getting into though b/c it was book #3 in its series.
