Divine Temptation by Nicki Elson

Nicki Elson stopped by Cover Girls to share the release of her new book and the amazing cover! She's a wonderful person, and we're happy to hand over the post to her.
Take it away, Nicki...

Thanks, Dani & Jax, for having me over on release day for Divine Temptation! It’s exciting to get to celebrate my new book at a brand new blog. Since it’s all about covers here, I thought I’d tell you a little bit about how Divine Temptation’s cover relates to the story itself.

I expected to shy away from any images of faces on the cover because I just didn’t think there was any way any guy was going to be able to capture Evan, the angel, the way I see him. But this model totally did. It’s not just his physical appearance that’s dead on, it’s the intensity of his stare and the way he stands protectively by her, like a good guardian angel should.

And then there’s Maggie. This woman’s expression alone can pretty much tell the whole story - her quiet struggle with her growing feelings for the angel, which she knows are wrong, the attraction that she knows she should resist…but does she succeed? That is the question, isn’t it? And you can bet I’m not going to answer it here. *insert evil laugh*

Divine Temptation by Nicki Elson

Maggie Brock has everything under control.  Even her divorce, though painful at the time, only registers as a minor blip in her carefully constructed universe. Life in Prairie Oaks has once again returned to a smooth, predictable pace…until an angel shows up in her bedroom.
The angel is just as bewildered as Maggie about why he’s been sent to her, but their unsuccessful efforts to gain understanding of the mystery fade to the background as their relationship grows. Soon, Maggie’s biggest problem becomes the angel himself, as her feelings for him develop into something less than saintly.
While Maggie struggles to keep her desires pure, a nefarious being lurks in the shadows of Prairie Oaks, watching and waiting for the opportunity to fulfill his ambiguous purpose. Preying on her conflicted emotions, the demon manipulates her at every opportunity, but the one to deliver Maggie directly into his hands is the last person she’d expect.
Wow, Nicki! That cover is hot and intense- two things that make a great cover! Congrats on your release! We wish you all the best!

We will be breaking down what we love about the details of each cover from A to Z in the month of April. We will give our own opinions of the selected covers.

And how did we select the covers? We took turns filling out our A - Z list. Jax went first then Dani until the list was completed. Viola!

Eye of the Soul Cover Reveal

Terri Rochenski is part of The Warrior Muses's #atozchallenge #minion team with our very own Dani.

Terri's WiP has been in the works for over 5 years. In which time she has moved twice, gotten married, and had two kids.

When J. Taylor Publishing offered her a contract for the 2-book series, Pool of Souls, she jumped out of her skin. Book #1, Eye of Soul, is set to release on October 7th of 2013, and book #2, Secret of the Soul, in October of 2014.

"I have been DYING to share the cover of my debut fantasy novel, Eye of the Soul..."


That should be Hyla’s first thought as her people are chained and imprisoned for no imaginable reason. 

Instead, Hyla finds herself traveling through a land void of Natives, with human soldiers pillaging in desperate pursuit of her, and in search of the mystical Pool of Souls—home to the one man who can save her people.

Or so she believes.

Led by her faith in the deity Fadir, Hyla is met along her journey by Jadon—a human male and fierce King’s warrior, and his childhood best friend Conlin—one of the few Natives aware of his Fadir-given Talents.

Protected by Jadon, guided by Conlin, and with an unfailing belief in the purpose of her pilgrimage, Hyla carries on. 

Like her, though, another searches for the Pool, and should he gain access first, everyone she loves, and everything she knows, could be lost.


And what a beautiful cover it is! The model is gorgeous! And the details in the background are perfect. Love how the color schemes blend into each other so well.

We can't wait to get our hands on this Terri!

Blog Reveal and Alex's Top Ten Movie Countdown Blogfest

No, no, we're not assuming that we're cover girls. It's the covers of books we prefer. (But we must admit, being an actual Cover Girl would be pretty awesome.) 

We've known each other for 20 years and counting, but it seems like a lot longer. Maybe in a past lifetime? We pretty much know what the other is thinking or feeling and find that our souls call to each other as well. It might sound weird to most, but to us, it's natural. 

So what better way to celebrate this than to open a joint blog together? We wanted a place to talk about and support: books, covers, reveals, bloghops, authors, bloggers, etc. And that's what you'll find at Cover Girls. When you have a moment, you can click on the tabs above to learn more.

Speaking of bloggers and bloghops, we decided for our first post, to join in on a super fun blogfest hosted by Ninja Captain Alex! 

Click HERE for details and to view other bloggers participating in this fun hop!

Since our individual blogs (Dani @Entertaining Interests and Jax @Bouquet of Books) list our favorite movies, for our joint-blog we decided to rate the movies we've actually watched together.

10. Twilight
9. New Moon
8. 1408
7. Eclipse
6. Final Destination 3
5. Black Swan AND Daybreakers*
4. Texas Chainsaw Mass
3. Fast & Furious
2. Black Swan AND Daybreakers*
1. Star Trek 

*Jax prefers Black Swan at #5 and DayBreakers at #2
*Dani prefers Daybreakers at #5 and Black Swan #2

Thanks for stopping by our blog, and we hope you'll visit again!
