Here's my candidate for the week:
Awaken the Curse by Alexa Egan
Publisher: Pocket Star (November 20, 2012)
Series: The Imnada Brotherhood, Prequel
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Now available only as an eBook, the dark and sexy prequel to the Imnada Brotherhood series about a clan of shape-shifters and telepaths living secretly as humans for centuries.
One very passionate and very scandalous kiss separated university student Justin McKeegan and professor’s daughter Kate Lacey. Now five years later, Justin, the new Lord Duncallan, receives an unexpected summons from Kate’s father begging him to come to Wales. When Justin arrives, he finds Professor Lacey has vanished while studying a mysterious ancient obelisk and everyone blames the nightwalkers; sinister creatures said to haunt the surrounding remote Welsh mountains. Do these legends point to the existence of the Imnada; a race of shape-shifters said to have died off a thousand years ago? Or is the professor’s disappearance the result of a very human villain? Justin and Kate are determined to find out the truth, knowing it may be the only way to find her father.      

Even as they work to unravel the mystery, they find that they’re not the only ones interested in the obelisk and the lost race of Imnada. Treasure hunter Gilles d’Espe believes the ancient dolmen is the focal point of the shape-shifters’ power and would do anything to lay his hands on the last of four silver disks he needs to unlock the dolmen. A disk that hangs around the neck of Justin McKeegan. While Cade, a local villager, is determined to refute both the claims of nightwalker sightings and the power of the dolmen as superstitious nonsense.      

Justin and Kate soon find themselves fighting for their lives.Yet every hour they spend together makes it harder to lay aside the bitterness of the past and a very new and very real temptation…

Where to Buy*:  
More Info:

When Alexa posted this on her Facebook page, I knew what cover I was posting today! :)

Just look at that--are you telling me you wouldn't let him into bed with you? Possible cold feet and all?

He's kind of scruffy (sorry, he didn't have time to shave yet..I was distracting him. *wink*), he's nicely toned, and I love the tattoo on him! I like that the cover was done in grey and white tones--I think any other way might take away from the model's great look. :)

This will be the prequel novella to Alexa's debut series. Remember, I Lusted after the cover for book 1, Demon's Curse, a few posts ago. And she stopped by during my big Blogoversary event, too. :) I can't wait to read this series, it sounds great--too bad we have to wait so long!

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 Awaken the Curse?

:D Yes, it's almost a must for Lusting for Covers!


The_Book_Queen said...

Oh, all right-- we'll share, right girls? :D

I agree--it is perfect just the way it is, almost rare even in good covers. There's usually something that I would change, even if it's just a small thing.
