New Cover!!! Laid Bare

Coming August 4 from Berkley Heat

Unexpected Desire…

It’s been ten years since clean-cut, sexy-as-hell police officer Todd Keenan had a white-hot fling with Erin Brown, the provocative, wild rocker chick next door. Their power exchange in the bedroom got under his skin. But love wasn’t in the cards just yet…

Now, life has thrown the pair back together. But picking up where they left off is tough, in light of a painful event from Erin’s past. As Todd struggles to earn her trust, their relationship takes an unexpected and exciting turn when Todd’s best friend, Ben, ends up in their bedβ€”and all three are quite satisfied in this relationship without a name. As the passion they share transforms Erin, will it be enough to help her face the evil she thought she had left behind?

    yummy cover……um, shouldn’t it say, if you every secret desire was laid bare? Instead of were? Or does it just sound funny to me?
    really yummy cover though!

    That is one amazing TOTALLY hot cover Lauren. As a reader I’d pick that one off the shelf even if I didn’t know of your work.

    Very nice. πŸ˜€

    Beautiful! For some reason I’m drawn to the color of her hair…and those tattoos!

    Intriguing blurb too. :mrgreen:

    Hey Lauren, I don’t want you to think I was picking apart your cover…I totally wasn’t! Ack, I’d hate for you to think that! 😳

    Beautiful cover!

    Also, the “were” on the cover is correct. It’s the subjunctive mood. You use “were” instead of “was” when using an “if” statement to espresses wishes or possibilities.

    @ Karen – it’s very lush I think. Eye catching. Thanks!

    @ Eyre – thank you and thanks for the grammar check – I thought so but then I was like, uh, I can’t remember, LOL

    Seriously. This has got to be one of the best covers I’ve ever seen. There are so many details but they all blend together beautifully and don’t overwhelm. Congrats!

    @ Emma – thank you. It’s really one of my favorite all time covers and frankly, the one I think captures the voice of the story the best of all I’ve ever received.

    @ Greta – thank you, I’m loving it too!

    @ Karin – thank you!

    @ Lacy – I’m so happy they did that! She starts the story with dreds but when we move forward to the future she’s always got funky hair and one of the do’s she has is that yellow with red tips!

    @ April – thank you! That’s what I like to hear, LOL!

    @ Nadia – thanks!

    @ Fedora – thank you!

    @ Jackie – no this one is a contemporary menage. Totally different. In fact, today I learned I just sold the follow up to this one as well! And yes, I have had some major cover magic lately!

    @ Brandy – thank you! I love the entire packaging of the cover, the whole concept is just so pretty and striking.
