Cover Reveal + Fellow Blogger Giveaways + Valentines

Posted by Ing on 12 February, 2011 // ★★ 5 Comments ★★

been waiting for the cover reveals for Maya’s upcoming highlander
historical trilogy.  The covers were revealed this week and they did not disappoint!  If you’ve read my previous posts you know that Maya Banks is the BOMB in my world.  She’s an author I adore, stalk, worship…whatever you want to call it, I love her books.  I can’t wait to read
these books.  I’m even more excited because my favorite author of
Historical Highlander books Monica McCarty gave the cover quote so that
just sealed the deal even more for me.  They’re so pretty!


Cover Blurb: 

Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a
warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for
battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is
his—until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin
may be the salvation of Ewan’s clan, but for a man who dreams only of
revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer. 

Though the illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin
possesses prized property that has made her a pawn—and wary of love.
Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril, only to be
forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan
McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband finds
her craving his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under
his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin’s strength, spirit,
and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons—and embrace a love that
means more than revenge and land. 

Cover Blurb: 

Fiercely loyal to his elder brother, Alaric McCabe
leads his clan in the fight for their birthright. Now, he is prepared
to wed for duty, as well. But on his way to claim the hand of Rionna
McDonald, daughter of a neighboring chieftain, he is ambushed and left
for dead. Miraculously, his life is saved by the soft touch of a
Highland angel, a courageous beauty who will put his fealty to his clan,
his honor, and his deepest desires, to the test.

An outcast from her own clan, Keeley McDonald
was betrayed by those she loved and trusted. When the wounded warrior
falls from his horse, she is drawn to his strong, lean body. The wicked
glint in his green eyes ignites a passion that will follow them back to
Alaric’s keep, where their forbidden love draws them deeper into the
pleasures of the flesh. But as conspiracy and danger circle closer,
Alaric must make an impossible choice. Will he betray his blood ties for
the woman he loves?

Cover Blurb: 

Caelen McCabe’s young, reckless
heart nearly destroyed his clan. Now putting family loyalty above all
else, he steps up to marry his older brother’s jilted bride and salvage
the uneasy alliance between two clans. While beautiful Rionna McDonald
is a fit wife for any man, Caelen trusts no woman, especially not this
sweet temptress who torments him with white hot longing. 

As the sacrificial lamb in her father’s power game, Rionna will do her duty but protect her heart and her pride from another man’s
humiliation. Despite everything, the heat in Caelen’s touch melts her
defenses and she craves the sensual delights of a husband who guards his
emotions as fiercely as his clan. But when the ultimate battle for the
McCabe legacy is upon them, Rionna’s true warrior spirit emerges. She
will risk the wrath of her father, the fury of her enemies, and her life
to prove to Caelen that his wife’s love is too precious to lose.

Jaci Burton also revealed the cover of her upcoming romantic suspense thriller for MIRA publishing.  This woman is seriously getting some great covers.  I would love to be at one of her cover shoots.  This one sounds good and the cover is very NICE.  I love how he has her against the wall like that!  SHIVERS!

Cover Blurb: 

No one said coming home would be easy. But for Dante Renaldi, it’s murder.

Before the Special Forces hero has even unpacked his bags from twelve
years of active duty, he’s embroiled in murder—corpses bearing the
brutal trademark he’s seen only once before—on the worst night of his

The last time Detective Anna Pallino saw Dante Renaldi, they were in
love. Now, he’s part of the connection to a string of fresh homicides
and a horrible assault Anna only survived thanks to him.

More than anything, Anna wants to trust Dante. But as the bodies and
the coincidences stack up, Anna will have to decide, and fast: Is the
man she owes her life to the very same one who wants her dead?

Now on to some giveaways that I think rock.  Two of my fellow bloggers are doing giveaways and highlights on authors I’ve never read before.  I’m highlighting these two giveaways because they did such a great job pimping these authors that both are now on my list of authors I need to check out.

First up is a giveaway countdown that Crystal at Reading Between the Wines Book Club
is doing in preparation for Jeaniene Frost’s upcoming novel.  So if you’re a Frost fan definitely head over there.  She has some great guest post, quotes from the books and fan arts and lots of other great goodies over at her blog.

Next up is a countdown to Julie Anne Long’s upcoming release What I did for a Duke that Barbara at Happily-Forever-After is doing.  She has an awesome interview with the artist of the cover, interview with the author, and a great review of the book.  Plus her giveaway is AWESOME!

So that was what I wanted to share today with you all.  This weekend some of you will be wined and dined by your significant other in preparation for the DAY OF LOVE on Feb. 14th.  I’m not much of a Valentine person.  I’ve finally convinced my hubs that I really won’t be mad if he didn’t do any of the stuff like flowers and all the other things for V-day.  I just don’t care…lol!  So we’re off to watch this movie instead!  How freaking cute is that title? Anyone going to see this movie?  I’m very excited.  Too cute.

For those that do celebrate, I want to wish you Happy Valentines Day!  I hope you ladies or gentlemen enjoy your day.
