How many of us love to stand in a bookstore and just stare at all the gorgeous book covers? Go on raise your hand you know you do! But we aren’t supposed to judge a book by it’s cover. A really pretty cover; however, can drag us in all the same. We’ll be picking out some of our favorite covers and displaying them here for you. To be honest, we may not know whether or not the book is any good but if the cover is anything to go by…..

In Bed with a Highlander by Maya Banks
Book Description from Maya Bank’s Website:

Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his—until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan’s clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

Though the illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn—and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril, only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband finds her craving his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin’s strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons—and embrace a love that means more than revenge and land.

Lisa’s Thoughts: Isn’t this cover simply to die for??? Sigh. I think the excerpt on the cover says it best: wickedly delightful! I love how it has a somewhat contemporary feel, but still stands out as a highlander historical. I’m not even a big fan of plaid, but the blue plaid in the background is beautiful! This cover is simply gorgeous!

I’d like to thank Tanya @ Among the Muses for letting me know about this video through her blog! Tessa Dare made a trailer for Maya’s new Highlander series which is so hilarious. I was laughing so hard I started crying. Tessa is just all kinds of awesome, I can’t get over it! My favorite part has to be the vaporizer during the ‘through the mists of time’ scene. But the ending is pretty cute too! See which part is your favorite…

What do you think of the cover?

    Oh what fun, I sure wish I had a child, I don't remember my Ken (or was that GI Joe) being so buff. I love the cover of the book but the video was just too cute. No kilts huh? by the way I dated a Scotsman and I know the answer.

      Because kilts didn´t exist in the 12th century. They were only used in the 16th century. 🙂

    I loved the cover and really enjoyed the story, although I've seen some mixed reviews, so I'm excited for the rest of the series. I love that the next two will be out so soon- waiting for books is hard!Despite having seen the video everywhere this is the first time I sat down to watch it- too cute!
