Cover Reveals! Entangled Publishing Launches Covet

Entangled Publishing is celebrating their Covet line with these cover reveals! I’m curious about these and intend to read a few.  Which ones look appealing to you?

Gone With The Wolf, Kristin Miller   

CEO and alpha werewolf Drake Wilder has given up the search for his one true love. When he discovers that she’s a secretary in his company, Drake’s primal instincts kick into overdrive.

What he wouldn’t give to have her fingers rake over his body instead of the keyboard…
Free-spirited bartender Emelia Hudson wants nothing more than to make her Seattle-based bar succeed. But when profits decline, she slips into a dress suit and secures a nine-to-five. After learning that her bar has become property of Wilder Financial, Emelia is determined to get some answers.

Two can play the ruthless business game. If only her attraction to the boss wasn’t so intense…

When Drake’s twin brother senses that Drake has found his match—and now inherits their father’s billion dollar estate—he hatches a plan to take Emelia out. Drake vows to protect her at all costs, but he might have to pay with his own life.

 


The Awakening: Aidan, Abby Niles   

Is the gift of eternal love a blessing or a curse?

After years of counseling grieving shifters, psychiatrist and half-shifter, Dr. Jaylin Avgar has become jaded on shifter mating. She wants to marry a human and forget about the love for eternity crap. Then she meets Aidan O’Connell, an infuriatingly laid back shifter who represents everything she doesn’t want. Yet, the more he pursues her, the more she craves a future with him. Only one thing stands in her way: death. Can she overcome her fear of losing Aidan to the one guarantee in life?

Millionaire consultant, Aidan O’Connell knows he’ll one day meet a woman who’ll awaken an unrelenting mating instinct. Unfortunately, that woman is Jaylin, who has no qualms about telling him that he and his so-called eternity can shove it. When she pushes him away, he takes a drastic step so she can no longer escape. The close proximity throws the instinct into overdrive. Can he control the need engrained in him until he’s certain she will reciprocate the bond, or will a moment of weakness doom him to hell on earth?


The Demon’s Song, Kendra Leigh Castle

The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. At least, that’s how it seems to Sofia Rivera when her attempt to help a friend ends in a blood-soaked confrontation with creatures that aren’t even supposed to exist. With a group of rogue vampires determined not to leave a single witness to their violence hot on her heels, Sofia finds herself saddled with an immortal bodyguard—Phenex, the fallen Angel of Song.  

While the vampire king roots out the corruption threatening to take down his underworld kingdom, Sofia will have to deal with a fallen angel whose dark beauty is often at odds with his ornery nature. Slowly, Sofia and Phenex give in to the strange attraction neither can deny. And as the darkness closes in around them, Phenex begins to wonder whether even the wickedest Fallen might find his own happy ending…and his heart.


Tall, Dark, and Divine, Jenna Bennett

Being the Greek god of love doesn’t mean you believe–or want–anything to do with that sappy emotion. Sure, Eros runs his matchmaking business, Made in Heaven, but finding his own love has never been part of the equation. When he spots the sweet baker who works across the street, he vows to match her with someone else before she stirs his sullen heart.

Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right. What she needs is Mr. Right Here, Right Now, and this so-called “Greek God” she’s heard is on the rebound sounds like the perfect kind of distraction. But picking up the bitter workaholic is easier said than done…especially when he seems unreasonably determined to match her with someone else.

Can a woman looking for love—and the matchmaking god who wants her to find it with someone who isn’t him—have a shot at a happy ending? May the best god—or mortal—win.


Deceiving the Witch Next Door, Melissa Bourbon Ramirez

Down-on-her-luck witch Storie Bell never thought the biggest threat to her future would be Reid Malone, the very man she’d run from years before. After striking it rich in Texas shale, he’s back in town, and he seems hell-bent on getting in the way of her bookstore’s grand opening. A witch trying to blend in in a small southern town is hard enough, but now he’s seriously testing her strict No Kissing Mortal Men policy. But even witches don’t have a spell for that.

Reid knows there’s much more to Storie than meets the eye. But right now he has only one mission: to infiltrate her shop so he can snatch the elusive secret ingredient to his father’s million-dollar moonshine recipe. Once he does, he can go back to the city and get out of his small hometown, a place in which he has no future.

But as the days go by, he can’t help falling for Storie in every way…and every encounter brings him closer to finding out what happens when you try to deceive a witch.

 

About Covet:

If there’s one thing we know about paranormal romance at Entangled, it’s that it breaks rules. All kinds of rules. And that’s where the Covet imprint comes in. Covets are firmly grounded in the contemporary world, but each novel brings in supernatural twists, breaking the contemporary and paranormal rules alike.

Covets have all the sexiness, emotion, and happily ever after that readers have come to expect and love from Entangled. With our launch this month, we’re bringing five titles to the forefront of this rule-breaking imprint. Greek gods, witches, demons, shifters, vampires … there’s something for everyone.

To find out more about our launch titles, chat with authors, participate in special events, and to find out what books you’ll be coveting next, visit the Entangled website(entangledpublishing.com), follow us on Twitter (@CovetBooks), and LIKE our Facebook page.  We have lots of exciting events coming up, and Round Two of our launch in May!

Interview with Erin Nicholas, Author of Hitched

Please give a warm welcome to Erin Nicholas! Erin is the author of Hitched, the fourth book in the Promise Harbor Wedding continuity.  Erin is the final author to stop by to chat about this Samhain series, so please enjoy, and don’t forget to check out the links after the interview so you can order a copy of all four books for yourself!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Erin Nicholas] Wife, mom, romance writer, wine lover, dark chocolate connoisseur, coffeeaholic, sarcastic, bossy Princess

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about Hitched?

[Erin Nicholas] I’d love to! Hitched is the fourth book (of four) in the Promise Harbor Wedding series. The series starts at a wedding that goes all wrong and follows the members of the wedding party from that point. Book one is the jilted groom’s story, book two tells us what happens when the Maid of Honor disappears, the Best Man gets into trouble in book three and then book four is the bride’s story. The run-away bride’s story to be specific!

Gavin Montgomery is the hero of book four. He arrives in Promise Harbor just before the woman he loves says I do to someone else. He can’t let Allie get married without telling her that he’s still in love with her and the only chance he has is, well, in the middle of the ceremony.

From there they’re on a crazy adventure to see where their hearts take them and if they can make things work this time.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

[Erin Nicholas] Three good friends and a glass of good wine! But seriously, our editor, Lindsey Faber at Samhain, first suggested a multi-author series with the four of us. We were all really excited, but we all had lots of other things going on and it took us awhile (2 years!) to really get a solid idea and to get going.

When we started brainstorming, we knew that we wanted a central event of some kind tying our characters and our stories together. We threw out lots of ideas, but the one that stuck and really got us all excited was a wedding. From there we each took a member of the wedding party and we were off and running!

I don’t know why, but I’ve always been intrigued by that part of the wedding ceremony where they ask “does anyone know of a reason why these two should not be wed?” I’ve always thought “what if” someone stood up and actually said “because I’m in love with her.” I eagerly volunteered to write the bride’s story, knowing that I wanted to finally use that “what if”! From there I got to create this woman, the bride, by asking things like “how did she end up the star in a wedding that she doesn’t really want?” “Who is this guy who’s interrupting the wedding?” “Why aren’t they together?” “What’s their history?” “Where has he been during this whole engagement that he’s just now showing up?” And a whole bunch of other fun questions!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe Allie?

[Erin Nicholas] generous, dependable, conflicted

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If Gavin had a theme song, what would it be?

[Erin Nicholas] I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) by the Proclaimers

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing Allie is never without.

[Erin Nicholas] Her cell phone and planner

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things will you never find in Gavin’s bedroom?

[Erin Nicholas] Any other woman (or man) besides Allie, a suit and tie, anything flowery, ruffle-y or lacey

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is Allie’s greatest regret?

[Erin Nicholas] Allie is a very practical person and when she makes choices the pros and cons are carefully weighed. So I don’t think she’s really aware of any regrets, until she has some new insights thanks to Gavin. Then I think she regrets not trusting the people around her to be stronger or braver or smarter than she’s given them credit for and taking everything on by herself.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are your greatest creative influences?

[Erin Nicholas] People. I am so fortunate to know and get to be around amazing people all the time. Everyone has a story and it’s so wonderful to hear about true stories of enduring love and bravery and sacrifice and triumph. I love getting to know people and asking them about their lives and their experiences.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things do you need in order to write?

[Erin Nicholas] Coffee, a pink ballpoint pen (for notes or for longhand writing at times), and photos that act as inspiration for my characters.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?

[Erin Nicholas] Wow, that’s hard. I love to read, but don’t always have as much time as I’d like. And depending on my own deadlines there’s sometimes a big gap between a book’s release and when I actually pick it up.

Hmm… to me this would mean a book I was anxious to get back to when I had to put it down, a book that I thought about when I wasn’t reading, and characters that I can easily conjure even long after I finish it. One book that comes to mind in recent months is High Risk, by Vivian Arend. I always love Viv’s writing and the whole premise in this novel, with the search and rescue team, was just really fun.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had to pick one book that turned you on to reading, which would it be?

[Erin Nicholas] LaVyrle Spencer’s Separate Beds

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

[Erin Nicholas] Hang out with my family, read, movies, lunch with girlfriends

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?

About the book:

And she thought the bridesmaids dresses were her biggest problem…

Promise Harbor Wedding, Book 4

Allison Ralston would rather be anywhere other than this wedding. Even ifthe wedding is hers. Especially since the wedding is hers.
But Allie’s determined to restore her family’s happiness, and if tying the knot with longtime family friend Josh Brewster is the way to do it, then she’ll walk down that aisle, toss that bouquet and drink that champagne. Oh, she’ll definitely drink the champagne.

There’s only one thing that could get Gavin Montgomery back to Promise Harbor. And she’s about to say I do to another man. Now he’s back to claim what’s his—even if he has to do it in the middle of her wedding.
Allie is shocked—and okay, a little turned on—when Gavin literally sweeps her off her feet. Safe in his arms, she succumbs to fatigue, stress, and yes, the champagne, only to wake up in his bed. In Alaska.

Now that he’s put four thousand miles between Allie and all her responsibilities, Gavin’s determined to show her that they can make a life together. If he has his way, the next wedding Allie will be planning will be theirs.

Warning: Contains a guy so in love he’s willing to break up the wedding of the season, a bride who just needs to get to, well, anywhere else, and enough hot sex to take them from New England to Alaska and back again
