Yes, yes. I know. I’m shirking Six Sentence Sunday again. I can’t help it. Today, I’m bringing you not one but two cover art reveals. Both of these are slated for released in August 2012 and I’m very proud of not only the artwork but the stories really make me happy. One, The Heat of His Kiss, is the last of my completed (as in completely during the frenzy) NaNo works. The other, Talbot’s Ploy, started as a piece for an anthology but it blossomed into something much bigger.
Without further ado, here are the covers and blurbs.
BLURB: When Mandy Weaver witnesses her fae brethren Justin find his beloved and life mate, her own eternal time clock ticks down to the last seconds. She hasn’t many moon cycles left before her choice to return to the heavens where she belongs is ripped away.
All because of a curse bestowed by Aphrodite and carried out by her son Eros. But Mandy can’t settle for the first man who charms her out of her clothes. If it’s not true love, she will be forced to live among the humans forever with an insatiable need for intimate contact every full moon.
To make matters worse Eros—the god responsible for damning her kind to the moral world—wants her for his own. Can she resist the man who caused her exile or submit to his charms?
BLURB: Talbot Sauvageot has kept his wicked lifestyle underground for several years, going from one lover to the next. Decedent rake to females by day, passionate lover for his latest male companion at night. When he is forced to flee Paris or face the guillotine, Talbot realizes none of the men he has bedded over the past years burns at his soul like his dear friend Maxime LaRue.
Forced into seclusion in the forest of Bois de Lunor, he receives an invitation from Maxime for their yearly gathering at his estate in Varanguebec. One that Talbot has avoided the past few years. Refusing to submit to a life without love, Talbot schemes to discover if his childhood friend shares the same taste in pleasure as he.
Will Maxime submit to Talbot’s ploy or cast his friend in the shadow of death?
