Here's my candidate for the week:

Instant Gratification by Jill Shalvis
Publisher: Kensington (November 6, 2012) [Reprint]
Series: Wilder, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance

In Instant Attraction, Jill Shalvis introduced Cameron, Stone, and T.J.--the sexy, daredevil brothers who run Wilder Adventures. And for Stone Wilder, the thrill of a lifetime is about to arrive in a surprising package. . .

The Doctor Is In Deep
Wishful, California, is 3000 miles from Dr. Emma Sinclair's last job in a New York City ER. It may as well be another galaxy. Here, running her father's clinic for a summer, Emma treats bee stings, stomach flu, and the occasional pet cat. Plus, she has to contend with patients like Stone Wilder: gorgeous, laid-back, and irritating beyond belief. The man laughs at her. A lot. And Emma loathes him. All except that tiny part of her that wants to throw him on her examining table and break every doctor-patient rule in the book. . .

When Stone tries to help Emma learn to loosen up a bit, he pictures white-water rafting or scenic mountain hikes. Not a mind-blowing affair that shakes them both to the core. Emma's sure she has no place in a town like Wishful, but Stone knows different. Emma belongs here--in this town, in his life. And convincing this strong-minded, stubborn, sexy woman of that fact will be a challenge no Wilder man could resist. . .

Where to Buy*:
More Info:

The cover seems simple, right? Well, that's one of the things I love most about this one. It's not crowded, it's not too busy...

Plus, it's sweet, and I don't mean that in a "sugar-coated" kind of way. The simple romantic embrace/kiss, when done right, can do wonders for a book cover. :)

I've never read any of Jill Shalvis' novels, but they are all on my list. And although this is a reprint, I personally like this cover a little better than the old one (see here).

What about you? Do you like the simple covers like this? Or do you prefer the older cover for Instant Gratification?

Interesting that they are moving away from the male covers for this trilogy. Really looking forward to reading the last one.
