New Cover!!!

I just got this this morning. It’s the cover for my June 2011 anthology with Jamie Denton and Lucy Monroe. What do you think?

I don’t have the “official” back cover blurb for my story yet, but here’s my version:

ACAPULCO HEAT

Sun, sand, skin and plenty of sex, that’s the name of the game in beautiful Acapulco.

Bodyguard Finn Tierney’s new gig in the sultry city is nothing short of perfect. Too bad he can’t stand it. Hired to protect supermodel Lauren Kauffman during her very public, very sexy cosmetic shoot on the beach, Finn’s itching for a serious assignment and the chance to get away from the hot bod who’s set her sights set on him. Their mutual attraction has been brewing for some time, but he’s got no use for the super wealthy, isn’t about to become another diva’s boy toy. His no-fun-at-work motto might get him booted out of her bed, but when danger strikes, she won’t be able to shake him. And when he discovers things aren’t what they seem and that she’s more than a pretty face and smokin’ body, all bets are off. Lauren Kauffman’s about to take Finn for a ride he never saw coming. And there’s no telling who will survive.

Those of you who read STOLEN HEAT will recognize the heroine in Acapulco Heat. It’s Pete’s sister. So…just for fun (and because I’m feeling generous)…tell me what you think of this new cover and I’ll enter you in a drawing for an autographed copy of STOLEN HEAT!

    I love the simplicity of the cover. Easy on the eyes and it looks like it’s got a great story behind it! 😆

    Simple, yet eye-catching. I love the way the title curves around the model’s toes.

    Hmm…I’m not a fan of it. I see you are sharing the book with others and the cover can’t be specific to your story, but it has a “Desparate Housewives” feel to it for me.

    And it’s unrealistic that one would have a bra wrapped around their toes while lying face down on a bed. Would have been cooler to see a trail of clothes, guns, badges leading to a bed, in the dark with just feet/legs showing at the end of the trail….I’m just saying… 😉

    I think the cover looks good for just having legs =) Normally I go for beef cakes on the cover but the gun got my attention. I normally read paranormal but this book sounds really good. Is this a stand alone or should people read the first book you wrote before this one?

    I like it, especially the contrast between the white and the red.

    I think the cover works for the time, spring/summer release. It definitely looks like a beach or poolside read.

    Kind of a lot of white. The stories sound great. I wish there was a dishy guy, or some hint of a dishy guy.

    Tanya, it’s an anthology, so there are three stories in this book, each written by a different author. My story – Acapulco Heat – is a stand alone, meaning you don’t have to read STOLEN HEAT first to know what’s happening. But Lauren (heroine in this anthology) does show up STOLEN HEAT so those of you who read that will recognize her.

    This novella was super fun to write. I really enjoyed it. While (as you all know) I love paranormals, a fast-paced love-on-the-run story can be just as exciting.

    The cover is beautiful and very sexy. It says a lot with just a few props.

    Love it Elisabeth. It’s simple & sexy & a nice change from 2 people in a clinch. The Stolen series remains one of my faves & it’ll be nice to revisit one of the characters.
