Lusting for Covers (5)



Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers.

Here's what you do:

1- Take the graphic (left) to use on your post. Remember to give credit to the original host (TBQ).

2- Choose your own book cover that you've fallen in "lust" with in the past week. It can be new, old, a reprint, or even a book that is not yet out-- it's all up to you! If you find a cover that catches your eye, then showcase it on your blog, and let others see the pretty covers out there.

3- Copy the direct link to your own L4C post into the comment section on my post (when in doubt, use this link and then scroll down to find the post), and allow others to come and see what you picked!
(OPTIONAL):

4- Besides posting the picture of the book cover you chose, it's nice to provide the book summary, title, author, or a website link for the book. It's not required, but it can help you readers' to add more books to their own list! A brief "Why I choose this cover" is also appreciated, but not required.


NOTE: PLEASE link back to my blog (http://tbqspersonalbookpalace.blogspot.com) somewhere in your post, letting viewers know that it is my meme, not something you are trying to call your own. Failing to do so, with the intent of actually calling this your own work, will result in trouble! I hate threatening, but really, is it so hard to post a link that says "This meme is hosted by TBQ."? Link love is great, and actually quite easy-- please use it!

Here's my candidate for the week:


Author: Jean Johnson
Publisher/Publication Date: Berkley Trade (April 6, 2010)
Summary (Amazon):
All-new! Fairy tales retold with an erotic edge, by the national bestselling author of the Sons of Destiny series.
Jean Johnson sneaks between the covers of such classic fairy tales as Beauty and the Beast, Puss n' Boots, and Sleeping Beauty, and refashions them into bedtime stories for adults only. With clever gender twists, hot fetishistic turns, other-worldly desires, and explorations into forbidden territories, Bedtime Stories reveals a veritable garden of sensual delights that gives new meaning to the term "happy ending."


WHY?
First off, I'm already a huge fan of Ms. Johnson, ever since her very first Sons of Destiny novel, which debuted a few years past. By now, she's an auto-buy author for me. Now, the cover is great-- very eye catching, what with the swirls and vivid, vibrant red colors. Of course, I'm not overly found of staring at the naked woman, I'd prefer if it was a guy (though that would look a bit weird for this cover idea and book....), but getting past that, the cover as a whole is very beautiful, in my opinion. Plus, the story grabbed my attention-- an erotic retelling of beloved fairy tale classics? Count me in! :D


What cover are you currently lusting for? Tell me, I want to know! Follow the directions above on how to post your own Lusting for Covers, and leave a comment telling me what you think of  Bedtime Stories's cover.







Enjoy!




Until Next Time,

  2. Here's my cover that I love the most. Guardian Angel by Lise Fuller. And here's a blurb. You can check out my website for a link to the book and an excerpt. www.lisefuller.com

    Someone needed to protect her…

    With her partner dead and his dangerous associates after her, fear made Marie run—and drove her right into the arms of Jake Colder, the sheriff of the small town where she sought refuge. The sexual attraction between them is instant and intense, but even the taste of heated nights spent with Jake’s gorgeous hard body wrapped around her isn’t enough to let Marie relax her guard. If Jake knew what she’d done, he’d arrest her, exposing her to the deadly greed of the men who pursued. Still, as hard as she tries to stay away from the hunky sheriff, some inexplicable force keeps pulling them back together.

    And that someone was Jake.

    Jake knew Marie needed his protection. He’d been warned by the ghost of his great-great-grandfather, the family guardian for over a century. Whatever the trouble was, there was one thing he was sure of—he wanted Marie in his life, in his bed, forever, and no one was going to hurt her on his watch.
