Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward
Book Description from Penguin Publishing Website:
Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, seductive cloth as her brother. Imprisoned for eons by their mother, the Scribe Virgin, she finally frees herself-only to face a devastating injury. Manuel Manello, M.D., is drafted by the Brotherhood to save her as only he can-but when the human surgeon and the vampire warrior meet, their two worlds collide in the face of their undeniable passion. With so much working against them, can love prove stronger than the birthright and the biology that separates them?
Vampire Mine by Kerreylyn Sparks
Book Description from Amazon.com:
Nothing on earth can make this vampire fall in love . . .
After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He’s been watching his friends—those poor romantic fools—plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache.
Until Marielle . . .
She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past. Marielle hopes to heal his broken heart and earn her way back home, but suddenly she has these . . . feelings. This strange yet pleasant physical yearning—for a vampire! Is this the work of a demon luring her into hell, or has this angel found heavenly bliss?
Okay, so this month I couldn’t resist two covers because there are some fantastic paranormal releases coming up! You’ve been living under a rock if you haven’t heard of the release of Ward’s latest Lover Unleashed for the end of this month, but there’s also a more underrated series by the wonderfully talented Ms. Sparks that has it’s release date on the same day. Both series are highly addictive and both are complete opposites of one another…but hey, that’s what eclectic tastes are for, right?
And now on to the covers…the covers for Ward’s series have always been sexy and this one is no exception. They manage to show so little, but yet still look so gorgeous. This time we do have the sultry glance of the female with the glowing eyes. It’s crazy sexy! And I was amazed by the fact that I saw blue people on the cover and didn’t immediately think of Avatar. I think that is enough in itself to prove how great this cover is! 😀
And I love Sparks cover too. It displays a battle that has been the backdrop for wonderful love stories since the beginning of time…yes, good and evil. And don’t you just love how the angel seems to look as, if not more, evil than the vampire??? Love it! They both look like a force to be reckoned with! Of course, they still manage to look crazy sexy too! Not an easy feat. And let’s not forget that Vampire Mine is also a play off of Ward’s title Lover Mine!
See how I brought that full circle? lol Pretty neat, huh?
