It's all in a "Crimson" Book Cover...



When Crimson Romance first released Magic Moment, I received many compliments on the book's cover. My mom commented that the man and woman "gazing at each other over the ocean" was a "romantic moment." During my blog tours, many comments related to the impressive book cover, and my reply was that I'd pass the comments over to the Crimson folks. What it all adds up to is Crimson Romance has some awesome behind the scenes folks who come up with remarkable book covers. Covers that compliment the book and give readers an idea of what's on the pages.

Most readers will browse through a book if the cover is attractive. Recently, I was going through Crimson's catalog and realized that the book cover creators probably seldom get a well-deserved "shout out." I had the idea of putting together a list of impressive Crimson Romance book covers, but the list was getting too long.

Eventually, I've narrowed it down to my top five (in no particular order). Let's give a round of applause and "high five" to the fabulous folks at Crimson who conceive this awesome book covers.

The White Lily
by Susanne Matthews

The Harvester is out there...watching, waiting, biding his time.

FBI cult specialist Lilith Munroe lives in dread that one day the man who tortured her when a case went bad will find her again. So leaving her sanctuary in Quantico to join the Harvester Task Force in Boston is her version of hell. But the Harvester is kidnapping babies, and Lilith's profiling skills may mean the difference between life and death for the most innocent in society.

Australian millionaire and former member of the New Horizon commune Jacob Andrews returns to the United States searching for his sister. Instead of the happy reunion he expects, he discovers she is dead and his twin brother may be responsible. He agrees to lend his law enforcement skills to help find his former cult leader before the man can implement his plan to kill millions.

Now uneasy partners, Jacob and Lilith must learn to trust each other even as they fight their growing attraction. But when Lilith's greatest fears materialize, will Jacob be able to set aside his anger and save the woman he loves?

Ringing in Love
by Peggy Bird

With a business to grow and a teenage son to raise, Catherine Bennett doesn't have time for a social life. Besides, after her husband left her for another woman, she's not exactly thrilled at the prospect of opening up her heart again. But when she leases office space in Dominic Russo's building, she can't keep her mind - or her eyes - off her new landlord. Only problem is he happens to be a known womanizer . . . and her professional rival.

Unfortunately for Dominic, Philadelphia's most eligible bachelor is definitely in a dry spell. He hasn't dated in months, contrary to the rumors, but convincing career-minded Catherine that there's more to him than his reputation will be a challenge. Since she's determined to focus on work, he offers her an irresistible chance at winning a huge contract if she partners with his company.

But will mixing business and pleasure make for a happy New Year's Eve?

Summer Promises
by Laura Simcox


Scenic designer Carly Foster just started her last summer theatre job, and at the ripe old age of twenty-nine, she promised herself it would be a working vacation in the mountains of New Mexico – with no romance allowed. She’s finished with the “drama trauma” of theatre romance: her love life has never been beyond Act One because she can’t stay away from tortured artists. Not this time.

But luck is so not on her side: she’s stuck in a touristy ghost town with a charming bodyguard who’s flirting with her just to relieve his own boredom: Asher Day, the producer’s brother recently returned from New York City with an armload of empty canvasses and a vanload of attitude. A sexy painter who won’t talk about his past? So typical. But Carly is determined not to experience a repeat of her past relationships. If only Asher could live up to his wounded artist persona, she could kick him to the curb and stick by her goal to stay away from the type of guy who stomps on her spirit.

But the magnetic pull she feels from Asher is irresistible: he has inner strength and compassion, not to mention a heart-melting wink and kisses that leave her sleepless. If Carly can’t keep the drama in the theatre and out of her personal life, not only will she have bags under her eyes, but her heart will never survive the summer.
