It’s that time again! Cover share. I love this one. It also carries on the themes from House of Death so nicely 🙂

Book two of Agamemnon Frost

Edgar Mason is ready to embark upon his new life at Agamemnon Frost’s side. But all is not perfect. His Martian overlord, Pandarus, has implanted a dark voice in his mind, a voice that urges betrayal. And though Mason can keep close to Frost, there’s little room for romance under the watchful gaze of the engineers from Station X.

That changes when Mason and Frost reopen their investigation into their old enemy’s whereabouts. Posing as double agents and investigating cryptic rumors of “hollow ships,” they find him impersonating a London banker and worm their way into his confidence.

But their success brings them trouble in spades. Pandarus takes them into the belly of his ships, where he plans to transfigure them into mindless automata. And with Earth on the brink of invasion, Frost’s old flame Theodora reappearing and Pandarus’s brainwashing growing more effective, Mason and Frost will find their bond tested as never before.

See how it all began in Agamemnon Frost and the House of Death.

Agamemnon_HouseODeath_final

Isn’t it rather nice? 😀

And here’s the blurb. This first of three novellas is out 16 August from Carina Press.

Book one of Agamemnon Frost

Liverpool, 1891

Decorated artilleryman Edgar Mason was forced to find new work when the British Empire replaced its foot soldiers with monstrous machines. Now he waits on the Liverpool elite as a personal servant. He has just one rule: he won’t work for fashion-addled dandies.

Agamemnon Frost, however, is far from the foppish man-about-town he appears to be. He’s working to protect the Earth from an alien invasion being planned by a face-changing creature known as Pandarus. And on the night he plans to confront the aliens, he enlists Mason to assist him.

For a man to love a man is a serious crime in Victorian England. But when Mason meets Frost, his heart thunders and his blood catches fire. And when Pandarus drags the two men into the torture cellars beneath his house of death to brainwash them, Mason’s new passion may be all that stands between him and insanity.

The trilogy continues with Agamemnon Frost and the Hollow Ships.

Cover Love: DARK DEALINGS…

There are monsters in the city. And one of them is her…

Ava Kalle’s empty soul devours magic. And her hunger is deadly. She’s sharp, quick and can live in shadow, making her work as a spy for the Mages a natural choice. She lives on the fringes of society and likes it that way.

But when the man she loves takes another woman for his mate, the darkness in her heart unravels and she’ll do anything to get him back. She makes a dangerous deal with a fire elemental, Heyerdar, who has a vested interest in agreeing: together they’ll use forbidden magic, harnessing their sexual energy to drive the couple apart.

But soon their pact pushes them both into a dark sexual obsession. One that Ava may not be able to control…

Cover Love: Bitter Harvest

Isn’t it nice? Here’s the unofficial blurb:

It’s 2050, and humans are an endangered species. Lieutenant Robert Sutton has survived the collapse of civilization by luck, his wits, and a chance mutation that makes him immune to the nano-virus that has wiped out millions. Now, his compound of survivors is surrounded by the infected, who are driven by the need to spread the contagion through sex. It’s only a matter of time before they attack. So when Sutton is assigned to interrogate a prisoner who claims to have overcome the infection, he immediately suspects a trap…

Nicholas Rider may have survived the virus, but he’s a changed man, ruled by his desires. But his need for Sutton is different. Rider craves an end to his overwhelming needs, and Sutton could be the man to do it.

Secure in his belief that he’s invulnerable, Sutton can’t understand or resist his intense attraction to his prisoner. Will Rider be his downfall—or his saviour?

BITTER HARVEST is out 19 March from Carina Press.

Cover love: Touch of a Dragon

Touch of a Dragon won Loose Id’s Hot Hooks Competition back in February.  It’s out 24 August 2010 and here’s the unofficial blurb:

Half dead under a heap of rubble, Leona Munro isn’t going to turn down that offer. Yet accepting, spins her life out of control. She is the Chosen and what that means no one will say
Thrown into the world of the magic she secretly craves, Leona must find the strength to survive. Too many people want to use what she is to their own advantage in the war between technology and magic. She can trust no one…least of all the sinfully attractive Samuel Blake.

Cover Love: Gambit

I’ve been waiting all week to show this off 😀 To say I squee’d is an understatement!

And the blurb. It’s still unofficial. So it may change:

Captain Chae Beyon is a hustler; a mercenary pilot; a wounded woman who prefers her men to be easily thrown aside.

Daned Traern is a first-caste Ladaian bound by tradition and DNA to protect his race. He’s willing to align himself with the hot space captain if she’ll get him home in time to ensure the right candidate is crowned—and so prevent a bloody war.

Disguised as her sex toy, he’s erotically bound to her through living gold, alien tech designed to increase pleasure. But when Daned frees himself, their passion only increases. A passion that risks binding them together permanently.

But there’s more at stake than their need, and Daned convinces Chae to help him. She is dragged into a world of insane princes, hidebound tradition and sentient stones, as hired killers hound them across the quadrant.

And that’s just the start of her day…

Cover Love: Painted Promise

My email has been evil this past week and so I didn’t get this in my inbox until EC’s art dept sent it again asking if I’d seen it…but I have it now *grin*

Painted Promise is a part of the Alluring Arts theme.  Here’s the unofficial blurb:

Thirza Girard is a clone.  Her mirror image founded a thousand year dynasty that spans the quadrant.  The Girard family power is no accident.  The original Thirza did a deal with an alien, a Tashen-Dar, who could manipulate probability.  He changed reality so that Thirza and her descendants are favoured with opportunity, the chance, if they grab it, of achieving great wealth and power. However, it comes at a cost.

Paint – an organic technology – binds the alien, Zaid, in the bowels of the planet. Paint has captured him as an image for a thousand years.  The time of binding is almost at an end and Thirza Girard’s clone must pay the price for the power her family has enjoyed.  She must rebind him, capture him again in paint, or pay another, more carnal price.

Cover Love: Emergence

I seriously love and huggle Kanaxa. Here’s the cover she did for Emergence. It’s out with Samhain 15 June *grin* I also made ‘Red Hot’ status with this novella. Which is worth another quick bounce, lol

She just wanted to forget. What she gets is her destiny.

Life as Jaime Dalton knows it is almost over. Come morning, she—the forbidden offspring of a human and a gryphon—will be owned body and soul by the First Dragon, ruler of the mythoi. He will control everything. What she wears, what she eats, when she sleeps. And with whom.

Determined to have a final fling, she seeks out the comfort of a stranger’s arms. Except he turns out to be “stranger” than he first appears.

Kaden Rhodes knows what it’s like to be owned. Before he follows his orders to escort Jaime to the same fate, he can’t resist joining her in one last act of defiance. Before the night is over, though, he finds she has inched her way under his skin.

Their connection is hot, fast, completely irresistible…and they’re playing with fire. Discovery will render them useless to the First Dragon. And those marked useless end up dead.

Warning: This title contains wild sex, dark violence and irascible dragons who shift into brooding men. Oh, and the utter perversion of mythology.

Cover Love: Shapes in the Blood

I meant to post this yesterday…anyway, here it is and the unofficial blurb 🙂

Aila Parry is a disaster waiting to happen.

Bad luck dogs her, has followed her all her life, ever since her grandmother’s heated warning when she was only three years old.  Food spoils, metal stresses and breaks, equipment fails…and people are wary of her, forming strange hatreds, or worse shunning her completely.  Men run scared.

Which is why her colleague, Nathan Ahern’s, carnal interest stuns—and delights—her.  But Nathan is not all that he appears to be.  And the only need he has for Aila is the desire to spill her blood.  Matt Kinnon, a tempting stranger, a man compelled to guard the human race from creatures like Nathan, offers her protection.  And more than that.  His dark beauty tugs at her, promising an irresistible — and forbidden — wickedness.

But can she trust herself with a man who is as much a demon as the one who wants her dead?

Out 4 May 2010 from Loose Id.
