Well here's something to look forward to this summer - romance novel cover models with their clothes on!
Starting on May 24, 2011, and releasing back-to-back-to-back months, veteran author Stephanie Bond is giving readers a new single title series via Harlequin (specifically, Mira Books). Here's a brief premise of what the series is about (from Bond's newsletter):
"The trilogy centers around three brothers who unite to rebuild their hometown in the Georgia mountains that was destroyed ten years ago by a tornado. All is going well until their workers threaten mutiny because there are no women! So the brothers place an ad for single women with a pioneering spirit looking for a fresh start…and then they wait. The books will be released in June, July, and August and the titles are BABY, DRIVE SOUTH, BABY, COME HOME and BABY, DON’T GO"There's a wee bit more nitty-gritty on her web site.
I'm not a huge single title contemporary girl, and Bond tends to run hit or miss for me, but this series premise sounds interesting, and the covers are delish. Guys. Wearing clothes. And tool belts! So much pretty to look at, my eyes might pop right out of my head.
Do you think My Man would mind if I blow up these covers and hang them in the Bat Cave home office?
I'd hang them up poster-size in my work office, but something tells me I wouldn't get any work done. Uh, ever again.
Just a hunch anyway.
