One of the most fun things about being an author is seeing the cover art for the first time. This time the cover art for the latest anthology I’m in, HOT SEDUCTION, SIX SIZZLING TALES, was designed by Leia Shaw. Leia is not only one of the authors, but the woman who put our anthology together. Leia asked me and four other authors to come up with full length “new adult” stories that sizzled. And then designed the above cover to visually “sum up” what our stories are about.
Read the book blurbs below and tell me if you think the cover fits the stories. (And then read next Friday all about my attempts to come up with the perfect blurb.)
