While I was at Alison Kent's blog today, I noticed she had up a cover for her August Blaze, Kiss & Makeup. It has a different look than some of the Blazes that I've seen recently, so I headed over to Amazon to take a look. Here are four covers for the August Blaze releases that seem to be the start of a new look. It's a look I rather like. They're also going up to 6 books a month in July (I think that's the month they start), instead of the usual 4 that they have had.
First up is Kiss & Makeup by Alison Kent. It's in the Hush miniseries that started with Jo Leigh's Hush and will have Thrill Me by Isabel Sharpe in June. It's an every other month thing.
I like the look of the cover, even though I went "huh?" at the sight of an actual room key on the cover in this day and age.
Next up is Jacquie D'Alessandro's Why Not Tonight? and again, I like the cover.
It looks like it's going to be a 24 Hours miniseries book. I'm looking forward to seeing how that miniseries will do. It's got to be hard to pack a good story in a 24 hour timespan.
Almost done. Here's Who's On Top? by Karen Kendall.
I like the imagery of her hand on top of his here. And it's sexy, but not in your face sexy. Nice. It also seems to be the first of a three-book miniseries by her that will continue in September and October.
And last, but not least, here's Texas Fire by Kimberly Raye (whose website doesn't seem to work at the moment).
Oooh...a cover with Texas in the title and no cowboy! It's kinda cute and makes you wonder why on earth a piece of sexy lingerie is hanging inside an old barn.
Well, that's all. This was sort of a drive-by cover post. I'm curious to see if anyone else likes the newer covers. Maybe I'll update it when I see more covers out.
Found the last two covers for August. So here they are!
Kristin Hardy's U.S. Male. I think this is in the middle of another miniseries. Which begs the question, is Blaze becoming a little too miniseries happy? From what I could see, it looks like Kimberly Raye's book is part of a miniseries too. Hmmm...
Well, I admit the cover is kinda cute.
On to the last one. Dorie Graham's The Morning After.
I really like the colors on this one. All the greens with the red kinda reminds me of the Garden of Eden and the forbidden apple. Cheesy, but true. AND...I think I see a miniseries logo there too. Bah.
Well, don't know much else about these books, but I do like the covers. We'll see how many I actually buy. I've already got a shelf full of Blazes that I need to read. Ack! Definitely Alison's, since I plan to follow the HUSH series. Maybe Jacquie's to see how the 24 hour thing goes.
