It feels like a while ago that I messaged my friend, graphic design artist and all-around brilliant human being, Michele Mason Holmberg, she of the fabulous gorgeous sexy Sanctum Trilogy book covers, and hit her with a million ideas all at once about my new book, DUTCH, and my website and my web series and all kinds of other nonsense that she wasn’t really interested in but listened to anyway. Why? Because she is good like that, and maybe she smiled as I babbled away – but most likely she rolled her eyes – and when I finally shut the fuck up for about three seconds, she gleaned the most important info from my rambling:
I needed a cover for my erotic romance about a deadly assassin named Dutch tasked with killing someone named Juma nine times.
The book was ridiculously sexy
and just as dark
and my cover needed to express all of that.
Without depicting a man
Because that kind of erotic romance cover, and you know the one I’m talking about, was exactly what I did not want for DUTCH. And since I promised I wouldn’t talk about Michele that much in my post, all I’m going to say is she delivered in epic fashion.
Take a peek and decide for yourself.
It’s gorgeous, non?
And brilliant and perfect and dark and sexy and really, just everything I wanted for a cover and more.
So yea me and yea Dutch.
I think we’re off to a pretty fucking stellar start.
Next stop – the October 12th release day party.
For the curious and uninitiated, here’s a blurb on DUTCH, The Keeper Series Book One:
Arrogant, handsome, and detached, deadly assassin Dutch Mathew has an insatiable appetite for bourbon, cigarettes, and women. A Keeper for The Gate, the shadowy organization designed to control Death and her Poochas, those reclaimers helping the dead cross back to life, he has three simple rules for anyone sharing his bed: no talking, no kissing, no touching.
Juma Landry is all about talking and kissing and touching. The more talking and kissing and touching, the better.
And as one of Death’s Poochas, the best in fact, she is Dutch’s next assignment. He is tasked with ending each and every one of her nine lives but with her sharp banter, beautiful smile, and hips made for all kinds of wickedness, she isn’t going to make that easy.
Set in New York City and Trivandrum, Dutch, The Keeper Series Book One, is a unique and sexy urban fairytale – a must read for anyone who likes their raunch with a twist of romance and a hint of magic. Watch for it to hit shelves October 12, 2015.
