Lusting for Covers (64)

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 (code for it is below) 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 Mr. Linky widget at the bottom of this post and allow others to come and see what you picked!
4- (OPTIONAL): 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.

Also, if you wish to post your links or talk about L4C on Twitter, please use the tag #LustingForCovers so that we can easily find all tweets about it. :)

Grahpic HTML--grab and post!

NOTE: PLEASE link back to my blog ( 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:
When Passion Lies by J.K. Beck
Publisher: Bantam (May 29, 2012)
Series: The Shadow Keepers, 4
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Summary (
Tiberius is a vampire dedicated to protecting his kind—and the secrets of the shadow world. Now, as his quest to become head of the Alliance draws within reach, a shattering new threat puts him to the ultimate test. It’s a nightmare of grim proportions: a dark plot to bring about the mass extermination of human and shadow alike. And it forces Tiberius to turn to the woman he loved and lost, the lover he still desires but doesn’t trust.

Caris was Tiberius’s mate for centuries—until a fateful mission changed her forever. Her tortured secrets drove her into the arms of his rival, but desperation has brought her back. As a horrifying new weapon of mass destruction is about to be unleashed, Tiberius and Caris harness the power of their immortal and passionate love. But will it be enough to battle devastating odds and a ruthless enemy with the ambition to destroy them all?

Where to Buy*:
More Info:

I've only had a chance to read one of Beck's books in this series (When Blood Calls, book 1) and I loved it! I never did write a review for it though..oops.

So not only am I looking forward to this one because it's a series I've tried and liked already, but the cover's great--lots of blended colors that catch the eye and of course the required yummy male chest. :)

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 the cover for When Passion Lies.

I am soooo behind in my series reads and this is one of them. :)
I have trying to catch up on my review reads this weekend and feel better --I've read like 4 books in a week. **wipes sweat off brow**
Great Cover!

Don't worry, that's me all over! :) I think there's probably 20 series out there somewhere waiting for me to pick them up again! :)

That's great! After all that hard work, you deserve a chocolate break and a book for pleasure (not review). :) I've been trying to do the same thing, I think the last 10 books I've read (over about 3 weeks time) have all been ones to review...and my pile still looks as daunting as ever! Yikes...

Thanks for stopping by!

:) Oh yes, very drool worthy! And even though I only read book one, I still highly recommend checking out this series--I know I am anxious to finish the series myself!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
