Cover Reveal: Forged by Desire by Bec McMaster

I adore Bec McMaster’s London Steampunk series. And I’m looking forward to the next two books that she has in store for us. Book 4 in the series titled Forged by Desire is scheduled for release in September 2014. Bec McMaster shares with her readers the book’s gorgeous cover.

*Squeals* I love this cover! It’s so beautiful and I just love how the colors really give off that steampunk London atmosphere that’s the background for the world that Bec McMaster has created.

 

Here’s the book blurb from Goodreads:

Captain Garret Reed of the Nighthawk guard has a deadly mission: capture a steel-jawed monster preying on women. He hates to put his partner, Perry, in jeopardy, but she’s the best bait he has. Little does he realize, he’s about to be caught in his own trap.

Perry has been half in love with Garrett for years, but this is not exactly the best time to start a relationship—especially when their investigation leads them directly into the clutches of the madman she thought she’d escaped…

 

I can’t wait to read Garrett and Perry’s book. Bec McMaster did such an outstanding job with My Lady Quicksilver and I’m looking forward to what she has to offer her readers with this next installment in the series.

Eye-Catching Covers

It’s been said that you should never judge a book by its cover and I guess I adhere to that. I definitely read the summary first no matter how I like or don’t like the cover. Nevertheless, the book cover is a part of the book and it is what draws your eyes in at the outset.

Here are some of the covers that caught my eye this month. Click on the covers to learn more about these books.

I love the contrast of the dark red, violet, and black against the almost pale pastel blurry background. Irresistible, indeed.

I feel wistful looking at this cover. It sure does say where the story takes place but I love the silhouette of the city and the couple.

I love this painted cover. It makes me want to meet and learn more about this ‘man above reproach’ as the author dubs him. It’s a nice deviation from the usual HR covers.

Isn’t this cover just beautiful or what? I love how the petals imitate the winding staircase or the other way around. And the black and white contrast really works.

I love the brightness and lightness of this one. It sure does complement the ‘glow’ part in the title. And I love the eye make-up on the girl because it does make her seem like she’s this other-worldly being who’s glowing, which she probably is and probably does.

I’ve seen a dichotomy cover before and was not really a fan but this one works for me. It might be the feeling that I’m getting, which is that these two people, even though they are lying leisurely in their own worlds, so to speak, they want to break out and explore another world outside their own at the same time.

Then, there’s these two covers. They’re colorful and magical, but a little creepy at the same time. The facial expressions reflect exactly what the title says.

 

So there you go. Eye-catching covers this month. What about you? What covers caught your eyes lately?
