Here's my candidate for the week:

Irresistible Force by D.D. Ayres
Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks (August 26, 2014)
Genre: Romantic Suspense

When adrenaline runs high, so does the force of desire…

For Shay Appleton, it’s love at first sight when a gorgeous stray dog is brought into the animal shelter where she works. She just knows he’ll make a terrific watch dog—and with an abusive ex who won’t let go, she needs all the protection she can get. But Shay never suspected that her new pet is actually a trained police K-9 named Bogart—until Bogart’s even more gorgeous, human partner shows up on her doorstep.


 Officer James Cannon is one tall, strong alpha male who’s convinced that Shay stole his dog. But once he gets closer to the suspect, he realizes that this stubborn, independent woman not only needs a guard dog, she needs James as well. It seems that someone from her past is stalking her, and threatening her life. When danger meets desire, will James risk his career and his best friend…to protect the woman who’s stolen his heart?

God, his arms! Look at those muscles and that tatt! *swoons* I want him! 

I can't blame the dog for staring up at him like that. Nope, not one bit!

Kame's Pick

Grimm Consequences by Kate SeRine
Publisher: eKensington (April 17, 2014) 
Series: Transplanted Tales, 1.5
Genre: Paranormal Romance

You reap what you sow...

Saying Nate Grimm has a dark past is an understatement. Fortunately, no one's bothered to look too closely at the Fairytale Management Authority's lead detective and part-time Reaper. And that's the way Nate wants to keep it. For after centuries of torment and loneliness, he's finally found happiness with the hot and hard-charging love of his life, Tess "Red" Little. 

Of course, his love for Tess is the reason there's a posse of Reaper judges after him, led by a sadistic bastard acquainted with Nate from once upon a time. Now, Tess will pay the price for Nate's transgressions unless Nate severs his ties to the transplanted Tales--and Tess--forever. His enemy has the advantage in speed, malice and brutality. But the Reapers have underestimated the depth of Nate's love and devotion. And the fury of his wrath. . .(

Kame: OMG – not a plot that interests me but LOVE this over.

I have concerns about the gun placement – but his back and that Tat…WOW.
Love the color love the scruff….love it all.

TBQ: Wow . . . I, I want to trace all those tatts! :) 

But, I agree, the placement of the gun? Better hope he can control that gun, we wouldn't want a gorgeous ass like that to be blown off! LOL

You guys and your tatted guys. This week I went with a grease monkey. LOL. I just wanted to say something like that. I hope you all have a great day.

Kame said...

Okay TBQ - how did I miss that book of yours - hmm might have to read that one

Trish Dechant said...

TBQ~ Both covers are delish--you know my weakness for tatts. My only complaint with covers with tatts, is when they photoshop the tatt in. I know not every male model has tatts....but damn, I love it when you run across a REAL tatt on a model. LOL
And of course, my male model for this week's L4C is probably photo shopped as well. :(

Here is my L4C:

*sigh* It's true, 99% of them are photoshopped, and of those 75% are crappy photoshopped. If it's really bad, I just picture it done right in my mind instead. Helps me to cope. :D

The_Book_Queen said...

:D I came across it on Heroes and Heartbreakers and had to share! :) It does sound good, doesn't it?

The_Book_Queen said...

What can I say? :) Ooh, a grease monkey, huh? *click*
