She talks about some of the less-than-stellar covers she’s seen on sci-fi romance books. Books that are very good but the story isn’t at all reflected in their covers.
I think that Carina Press does a pretty darn good job with their sci-fi romance covers (just take a look over on the right hand sidebar at some of the truly eye-catching covers). I’ve loved all my Carina Press covers…even though so far in all my sci-fi romance covers my characters have been naked…hmmm. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
I have a new sci-fi romance hitting the virtual shelves on 31 March. AT STAR’S END is an action-packed adventure about a treasure hunt to find the last remaining fragment of the Mona Lisa. I wanted the action-adventure and the romance all reflected in the cover and luckily for me, the cover artist listened to all my suggestions.
The result: a fabulous cover and a very happy author!! And yes, my characters are naked!
Oh, and if you have a favorite sci-fi romance cover (or one you don’t like!) then let me know below.
Dr. Eos Rai has spent a lifetime dedicated to her mother’s dream of finding the long lost Mona Lisa. When Eos uncovers tantalizing evidence of Star’s End—the last known location of the masterpiece—she’s shocked when her employer, the Galactic Institute of Historic Preservation, turn its back on her. Left with no choice, Eos must trust the most notorious treasure hunter in the galaxy; a man she finds infuriating, annoying and far too tempting.
Dathan Phoenix can sniff out relics at a stellar mile. With his brothers by his side, he takes the adventures that suit him and refuses to become a lazy, bitter failure like his father. When the gorgeous Eos Rai comes looking to hire him, he knows she’s trouble, but he’s lured into a hunt that turns into a wild and dangerous adventure. As Eos and Dathan are pushed to their limits, they discover treasure isn’t the only thing they’re drawn to…but how will their desire survive when Dathan demands the Mona Lisa as his payment?
