Close Quarters

The cover is finally here!


Isn't it gorgeous?

This is Roman Chernichenko's story. His family thinks he's a top Army scientist, but in reality he's a member of the Atrati and they call him Geronimo because he leads other warriors and he'd rather kill than count coup.

Oh my goodness... gorgeous! And yes, I've pre-ordered it. :-)

Thanks, Judy! It's so perfect for the book. I think it's one of my favorite all time covers for my books. (My favorite is still the 1st book, The Greek Tycoon's Ultimatum, because the cover so PERFECTLY represented the story and was absolutely gorgeous besides.) But this one is definitely in the running for that honor. :)

Of course, I had to check my copy, and you're right, the cover is perfect for that story. You really do have so many delish covers. :-)

Congrats on the lovely cover, Lucy.

Thanks, Jane! I've been chomping at the bit to see it since I found out they brought in a cover model to shoot for it. Only...they didn't use his face. They so rarely do on my covers, which is fine by me. The only face that totally fits the hero in my opinion, is the one And Able.

LOL Judy! You are right, though. I've been lucky. Not one of my covers has ever made my cringe, though a couple have been so far from the book concept I wasn't sure where they came up with cover art. :)

Judy said...

Made me think of the covers I've seen where the hero/heroine was blond but in the story they have dark hair, or vice versa. I've never gotten rid of a book because of the cover, but I have kept books because of the cover. :) And Able is yummy. Oddly enough, I really love Ready's original cover.

Ready is a great cover! Thanks!
