Hot guys. Top hats. Steampunk. Carnivals. Vampires.

Bloodthirsty rabbits.

All that and more.

Edit to add - Delilah Dawson gave me the link to her blurb. *seriously drooling now*

WICKED AS THEY COME, the first in the Blud series.

When Tish Everett forces open the locket she finds at an estate sale, she has no idea that a deliciously rakish Bludman has cast a spell just for her. She wakes up in a surreal world where Criminy Stain, the dashing proprietor of a magical circus, curiously awaits. At Criminy's electric touch, Tish glimpses a tantalizing future, but she also fore...sees her ultimate doom. Before she can decide whether to risk her fate with the charming daredevil, the locket disappears, and with it, her only chance to return home. Tish and Criminy battle roaring sea monsters and thundering bludmares, vengeful ghosts and crooked Coppers in a treacherous race to recover the necklace from the evil, Blud-hating Magistrate. But if they succeed, will Tish forsake her fanged suitor and return to her normal life, or will she take a chance on an unpredictable but dangerous destiny with the Bludman she's coming to love?

Whose addiction isn't humming in the veins when reading this? I don't need much to get excited but what is given really needs to pique my interest!! Job well done for Delilah S Dawson!! For some reason it screams adventure to me and I don't know about you but Crimeny Stain...if that is a characters name I want to get to know him!! If it is a he...there's not much info around yet!!

What do you all think of the cover. I'm going gaga over it. Especially the guy, jeez, talk about mysterious much!! I want to know who this guy is, now!!

Book #1 in the MAKE ME series:

Lacey Walsh has had an extremely bad day. Not only did she catch her boyfriend porking his secretary after business hours, but upon fleeing the scene of the affair, she finds herself crashed into a guard rail and trapped by blankets of snow. There’s only one solution to her problem -- Mike’s Wrecker Service. Contacting owner and Adonis, Michael Gilchrist, may or may not cause more turmoil than relief. She’s lusted for the gorgeous Dom ever since she first laid eyes on him. Trouble is, he doesn’t do vanilla and she’s not a submissive...or is she?

Michael has hungered for Lacey ever since they shared a casual drink and conversation at the local bar. She’s smart, beautiful, and everything a man -- and Dom -- could possibly ask for. Unfortunately, upon learning of his sexual preferences, she split and never looked back. Being around her will surely be hell and he doesn't know why he’s willing to torture himself. Still, he can’t help but notice her reactions to him, or the fleeting glimpses and blush-stained cheeks as he rescues her from the snow and ice.

When Michael finally gets the opportunity to push Lacey’s boundaries, she responds in a way neither of them anticipated. Their newfound connection is strong...until a flame from Michael’s past returns, shatters the fragile trust he and Lacey have only just developed, and threatens to destroy something neither wants to surrender

The moment I saw this cover I thought the artist was a resident in my imagination cause this is what a sexy shower scene looks to me. Plus, did you see the biceps on that man? I can totally see them wrapped around me *cheeky grin*

Ashton Burke is a legendary adventurer who has spent the past ten years roaming the globe to forget the girl he left behind. His devil-may-care life is interrupted when he's hired to rescue his brother's kidnapped fiancée from a sultan's harem. Too late, he discovers she is none other than Clarinda Cardew, the very same girl who made off with his jaded heart a decade ago.

The last thing Clarinda wants is to be trapped in a palace of sensual delights with the man whose irresistible kisses still haunt her sleepless nights. Although he vows he is only doing his job, Clarinda quickly realizes that allowing Ashton to rescue her may put her yearning heart in even greater peril. In a journey that takes them from the delicious intrigues of a sultan's court to the glittering ballrooms of London, Ashton and Clarinda resume the steps of their dangerous dance only to discover the most seductive pleasure of all may be love itself.

I have to confess the historical trend of ladies with half open corsets and...stuff have never done it for me but this one just speaks to me. the hair, the dress, the look in her eyes and the background give it a rich and lush vibe I enjoy. Don't think I will pick it up to read but from all of the historical romance covers I see fly by on twitter this one just grabbed my attention.

That's all I have for the cover gallery this week. I'm 3 weeks away from going to NOLA and the GayRomLit. *sings; I'm so excited!!* My to-do list is still not under control *screams* as in; I still need to find a dress, peejays - cause the one I have will not be fit to flash fellow GRL ladies LOL and an SD card - I will be shooting pics at every possible opportunity. I need to find a way for my handbag luggage to become a Mary Poppins bag so I can fit in all the things I want!! By the time Janna and I will be on our plane to NOLA I will be zen again ;)
