Top Off Tuesday: Ubiquitous romance cover, FTW!

Posted 27 May, 2014 | Mary @ TheBookSwarm | Features, Top Off Tuesday | 17 Comments

Before we get to the hot men, just an FYI: I’ll be in NYC this week at BEA so I won’t be around the blogosphere like usual. I’m still posting for much of the week, just not commenting (my hotel does *not* have free WiFi. WTF, people? Get with the times!). Anyway, I’ll be back next week with news and pictures (Ellora’s Cavemen, anyone?).


Started by FeliciaChristi and Amanda, Top Off Tuesday is where a bunch of us share hot-hot-hot book covers (some we’ve read, some we’ve just drooled on). Head over to Felicia’s blog to share your ToT link and see what everyone else is swooning over.

Man’s strong jawline (but no face) — check.
Photoshopped tats — check.
Greased-up chesticles — check.
Pet-worthy abs — check.
Yay for ubiquitous romance covers!

Paranormal romance
128 pages, ebook
Expected publication: July 1, 2014
Publisher: Forever Yours


Adopted a few weeks after birth, Ivy Morales suspects that she might not be totally human. Fully aware that one whisper of such insanity would land her in a mental institution, she keeps the outlandish thought to herself. But there’s no ignoring the increasingly vivid and stunningly powerful dreams of an ancient blood feud that plague her nightly—or the darkly erotic turn those dreams have recently taken.

Drawn to Mexico for Spring Break, Ivy unwittingly stumbles right into the path of the same evil presence from her mysterious dreams. Kidnapped and held hostage, she has only one chance to survive. She reaches out to the wickedly sexy man from her dreams and prays he’ll answer her call for help.

Welsh dragon shifter Ian Madoc struggles to understand the strange dream connection he shares with this unknown woman. In all his centuries of life, he’s never experienced anything like it—and it unsettles him. When the dreams turn to pleas for help, Mad rushes off in the middle of the night, hell-bent on saving the young woman he fears may be his mate.

But rescuing Ivy from the clutches of the Knights is only the beginning of Mad’s problems. When Ivy’s true identity is revealed, old secrets and a close friend’s betrayal put him at odds with the rest of the Brotherhood. Protecting the dragon species is no longer his top priority. He’ll do anything to keep Ivy safe, even if it means walking away from the only life he’s ever known.

  1. Wow if that writing wasn’t on the cover we could see how low his pants go. I can see that cut of his hip on the side. Not fair.

    Bummer about no free WiFi at your hotel. Some places like to milk you for every service. Have lots of fun at the BEA, Mary! 🙂

  2. Greased-up chesticles LOL and YUM! Hope you have an amazing time at BEA Mary! Wish I could be there (I mean to meet awesome bloggers of course, but primarily so I could ogle Elora’s Cave guys). Share lots of pics when you get back! 🙂

  3. LOL, the chesticles are rather fine on this one. I love how the image gives us all that yumminess from his strong jaw done to the title cover up as Kimba mentioned 😉
