Oh, is he handsome. And charming. And sexy as all get out. Dr. Lisa Maxwell isn’t the type to go home with a guy she barely knows. But, hey, this is Italy and the red-blooded Rafe Sullivan seems much more enticing than cataloging a bunch of dusty artifacts.
After being fully seduced, Lisa wakes to an empty bed and, worse yet, an empty safe. She’s staked her career as an archaeologist on collecting the three Furies, a priceless set of ancient Greek reliefs. Now the one she had is gone. But Lisa won’t just get mad. She’ll get even.
She tracks Rafe to Florida, and finds the sparks between them blaze hotter than the Miami sun. He may still have her relic, but he’ll never find all three without her. And they’re not the only ones on the hunt. To beat the other treasure seekers, they’ll have to partner up—because suddenly Lisa and Rafe are in a race just to stay alive.
I am so totally thrilled with this cover. I can't stop grinning. It really captures the heart of the book well - sexy, suspenseful, mysterious all in one. In the story, the heroine, an archaeologist, is on the hunt for three stone reliefs of the three Furies - those winged creatures with snakes in their hair from Greek Mythology that tormented evil doers. So the stone Medusa-type head in the foreground is perfect. And the cover copy and top "steamy" photo really capture the romance well.
December 30th seems so far away and so close at the same time!! I don't know how I'm going to stay sane between now and then.
If you're published, what's your favorite cover to date? And if you're prepublished - or a reader - can you think of a book that had a phenomenal cover you just loved?
