New Covers!

Yes, I know it's been forever since I posted anything.  And I can't even promise that I'm going to do better in the future.  But since I'm here, how about a look at my new book covers?  The last three Cooper Security books for 2012 will be out in August, September and October, and here are their covers:


Secret Assignment - August 2012

Shannon Cooper came to Nightshade Island to carry out a mission. But she can't do it without the mysterious Gideon Stone. The enigmatic, battle-hardened former soldier is much more than just the island's caretaker. And the powerful feelings he's awakening go deeper than fleeting desire.

Former special ops, Gideon has seen danger up close and personal. Now, protecting Shannon from deadly mercenaries is his first priority. But who will shield him from the onslaught of emotion the beautiful computer tech is arousing? As a storm hurtles up the Alabama Gulf Coast, mirroring the passion raging through his defenses, Gideon will do whatever it takes to survive…and explore a relationship as impossible as it is irresistible.…

Secret Keeper - September 2012
Although a missing Annie Harlowe and her entire family were at the forefront of a Cooper Security investigation, Wade Cooper never expected to stumble upon the half-conscious beauty in his own backyard. Thankfully, Annie had somehow escaped her captors. Unfortunately, she had no memory of the past three weeks. Before long, the memories slowly began to return—and the threats to her life turned deadlier. And although her well-being was becoming more than just an assignment, Annie’s safety remained the battle-scarred marine’s top priority. Still, for a man who’d avoided the risks a relationship was bound to bring, could Wade really walk away once this case was closed? And what could his future possibly hold if he did?

Secret Intentions - October 2012

Although he was trying to crack a global conspiracy,former soldier Jesse Cooper had an even more important mission: keep new hire and girl-next-door Evie Marsh safe. Shocked to learn Evie could be the key to bringing down this secret plot, the head of Cooper Security had to stifle his attraction to her. After all, the case was on the line—and so were their lives. But between dodging bullets and staying one step ahead of the enemy, temptation became impossible to resist. As a man made for danger, Jesse thought sweet Evie had no place in his world. Then, in the heat of the moment, she proved she'd always have his back—or die trying.…

Cover for May book!

I've actually had this cover for a while, but I'm under a wicked deadline (and just got line edits for my August book, which will be due any time now). Anyway, here's the cover for SECRET AGENDA. I kind of hate that they didn't put the heroine on the cover, as she's a fiesty redhead with loads of attitude, and I'd have liked to see how they portrayed that.

Instead, we get sexy former Pentagon lawyer Evan Pike on the cover. Can't say I've got any complaints about that!

One thing I'm not that happy about, though is the back cover copy:

He'd faced down danger multiple times, but now Pentagon liaison Evan Pike had to deal with the ultimate confrontation. Telling Megan Randall that her late husband had been murdered by his own government was difficult. Keeping their association strictly about business, however, was proving impossible. Especially once Megan's life was put in jeopardy.

On the run with a stranger, Megan wondered how her quiet life had changed so drastically. Having Evan as her protector was comforting and she knew he'd do anything to keep her alive. But he was also a man who had her questioning her belief that she'd never love again. And that was even more dangerous....

See, the problem with that blurb is that it makes Megan sound like some innocent flower of a widow whose life was quiet and event-free before Evan blew into her life, when in fact, Megan works as a security agency operative and is far more at home carrying a weapon than Evan the lawyer is. She's strong, feisty and utterly capable of taking care of herself, and for a fair amount of the book, she's keeping Evan out of trouble.

So I hope the blurb doesn't turn off readers looking for a kick-butt heroine.

Just got the cover for my April book, Secret Hideout. I love the feel of the image—two lovers, isolated and in danger. Perfectly captures the tone of the book. I particularly love this book because it plays on one of my favorite themes—partners who become lovers. Hey, there's a reason I was a Mulder and Scully 'shipper, right?

So, here it is.

Pretty good representation of the hero and heroine as I imagined them, and the weathered cabin is also spot on.

I hope y'all love this book as much as I loved writing it.
