Those are fellow Harlequin author Candy Havens’ words on her blog on Monday about her new BLAZE cover for “Take Me If You Dare” (Feb 2010). It’s wild, it’s sexy–and yes, it’s got a half-naked guy on the cover with a gal who is definitely in control.
Check out Candy’s cover: The heroine is in a dominant position with her hand on his knee. But he’s not taking it lying down, as you’ll see when you check out her blog. Very appealing and very cool. You just know this couple is going to be volleying for position in a win-win situation.
Which makes me ponder the question: do you notice the body positions of the hero/heroine on the cover? If so, does that influence your buying decision? Any turn-ons or turn-offs re: book covers? I’d like to know your opinion.
And don’t forget to check out Candy’s website for info on “Take Me If You Dare,” her workshops and her contest.
