Cover Hussy Club meeting #1: Paranormal at its finest!
I’m so psyched to have the Cover Hussy club convene for the very first time and it delivered some hot stuff!! We even had one hussy travel all the way to Germany to find a cover…of a dragon…oh yeah!! Since this week is still in the spirit of paranormal romance Cecile and I thought it would be a nice idea to send our cover hussy princesses out there to find some PNR covers of the first order…and they came back with some old and something new. I myself have found a new series for 2011 that has my addiction spinning out of control.
Well, let me zip my lips for now and present you the covers of the hussies and I just want to mention, you can vote on the (right) sidebar cover poll which one you love the most! It will be up for fourteen days :)
The first one comes from Cammy (@envyious):
Why? Because Gena Showalter is an amazing writer, though I seem to be in the minority when I say I prefer her Alien Huntress novels to her Lords of the Underworld! Oh and back to the cover, well, I like how it teases us (damn you smog! get out of the way! *blows repeatedly* I see how that can be misconstrued lol But I AM a cover hussy princess now come on ;) ) and he has a mother fkin WHIP. It's a NAKED. HOT. GUY. WITH. A. WHIP. How is that not hot? Punish me please?
The second entry comes from Minx:
Dragon Love: This is the German cover of You Slay Me by Katie MacAlister and I want to know... WHY DIDN'T WE GET THIS COVER!!! Dark, moody, defined, sexy, everything Drake is meant to be. Add to that dragons, the hint of opened jeans and I am a very happy girl!
Princess Minx Hussy aka Jules xx
The third entry is from Nanny:
HeartSong: It's a naked hunky guy... do I really need to say more. Ok I will. This actually caught my eye, not only due to the naked dude, but because everything works so well together. The city background is subtle and doesn't really pull all the attention. You can tell it's a paranormal just by glancing at it the dark colors, the full moon, dark night city and hunky naked dude, all work together. It just scream shifter.
The fourth one is delivered by Gina:
Let me start by telling you a little secret-- I love tattoos! LOVE! Especially on a man.
This cover stopped my search immediately. Strong back, broad shoulders, perfect skin, jeans slung just low enough to make you think dirty, hot, naughty thoughts and of course, the tattoo inked across the shoulder blades. Who cares if this guy is a demon. If all demons are built like him, consider me a demon slave willing to do anything to trace that tat with my tongue!
Hussy Gina Gordon
And the last one is found by me, High Queen Hussy Leontine:
Is anyone else lost for words? I mean, first comes the tattoo, then my gaze traveled along those muscular arms, then the back with the great shoulders *slightly starting to pant here* and then both hands wrapped around the hilt of his sword, oh yes, my cover hussy is on full alert now. Even the title; TOUCH IF YOU DARE...well isn't that a challenge for this hussy if I ever seen one, cause I am brave enough to touch!! everything just works for me, the guy, the colors, the font, this cover does what a great cover needs to do; it invites me to pick it up and read the blurb.
Happy cover hussy day to everyone. And please, feel free to share the title of the cover you drooled over lately!
