Here's my candidate for the week:

For Desire Alone by Jess Michaels
Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd. (November 6, 2012)
Series: Mistress Matchmaker, 2
Genre: Historical Erotica

Behind their passion lurks a dark truth that could destroy their love.

Mistress Matchmaker, Book 2

A mistress should never be foolish enough to fall in love with her protector, nor trust him with her financial future. Mariah Desmond did both, and now her dearly departed protector has left her with nothing.

Forced to seek another protector, she’s determined that this time, she’ll lead with her survival instinct—not her heart. But when she attends one of Vivien Manning’s infamous parties, the familiar face of her late lover’s best friend throws her for a loop.

A painful past taught John Rycroft that he’s not fit to be anyone’s knight in shining armor. His soft spot—make that a hard spot—for Mariah is precisely why he’s kept his distance. Yet the sight of her flirting with a bevy of men vying to become her next lover makes something inside him snap.

As John hauls her bodily away from her suitors, Mariah’s indignation melts away in the heat of the sizzling sexual chemistry. She quickly finds it isn’t easy to navigate John’s stormy emotional waters. Especially when his abusive father’s quest to get his son back under his thumb puts her life in danger.

Product Warnings
Contains intensely sexy scenes of two people falling into bed (a lot) and in love.

More Info:

I saw the cover first, dug up the summary last.

Guess which one hooked me? Yep, cover. The summary? Just the whip cream on top! :)

I LOVE this cover, it's sexy without showing too much, classy in a way, I guess. Who doesn't want to come up behind their man like that and nibble, holding him hostage (though he's obviously a willing "hostage")?

I haven't read Jess's other books, but I have read a few of her older books written under Jenna Peterson (a few years back) and enjoyed them. I can't believe I "forgot" about her books, but now they are back on my radar!

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 For Desire Alone?
