Cover Love!

After Cara's blog yesterday nothing I do can possibly compete so....I'm showing off my new cover which I freaking love!! It's exactly like I envisioned and that never happens. Don't get me wrong, I've loved almost all my covers but this is just like I pictured!


I don't even have a tentative release date yet but I can still share what this story is about. It's actually a heavily revised version of a book I recently got my rights back for. When I say heavy, I mean heavy. This used to be a light romantic suspense with one fully consummated scene, but now it's a very erotic suspense with a new secondary storyline I hope readers will enjoy. So what's it about?


After being widowed at a young age, Jade Hadley is tired of her celibate existence and is determined to add a little romance and sex into her life again. When her deceased husband’s sexy best friend admits his long time attraction to her, her entire world is thrown off kilter.


Security expert David McIntyre is in love with Jade and has been from the moment they met. Unfortunately for him, that was the week she married his best friend. For years he’s stayed silent, giving her time to mourn. When he discovers she’s dating again all bets are off. When someone targets her to die he realizes he has more problems than he bargained for. Seducing her isn’t the problem. Convincing her that what they have together isn’t purely physical, however, is. It might even prove to be a bigger challenge than trying to keep her alive.


Have a great weekend everyone!

Your cover is so romantic, Savannah, with just enough eroticism to pull in the reader.

Love the erotic suspense storyline! I'm curious--is there an island locale in your story? I can almost feel that sensual, warm tropical breeze when I look at your cover...

Savannah Stuart said...

Hey Jina! It's not an island but the story is in St. Augustine, FL near the coast :)

Gorgeous! I've yet to get a cover that matched the image in my head (but I'm a designer so my visions are annoying specific, right down to the kerning between the letters) but I can only imagine it's best kind of voodoo. Also, shirtless man in jeans? Sigh.

Wynter Daniels said...

What a great cover! Congrats. Having read the original, which I really enjoyed, I can't wait for the new hotter version.

That's truly beautiful! I love my cover for Quivering Thighs. It's aslo a couple on the beach, but they're laughing and smiling. That's why I love it. So often the models don't look happy at all, and I write comedy!

Kaylea Cross said...

Yeah! I love David!!! Cannot wait to read this. Congrats :)

Savannah Stuart said...

Cara, actually, that's one of the reasons in my cover requests I always include a note that I prefer side views of characters. I'm probably not as specific as you in my cover wants but their faces never look like I think they should so if they're turned or blurred, it's easier for me to imagine :)

Savannah Stuart said...

Aww, thanks Wynter! :)

Savannah Stuart said...

Ash, I don't think I've seen that cover of yours but I do like your new cover for The Werewolf Upstairs. It's very cute!

Savannah Stuart said...

Ha, Kaylea, wait til you read the dedication of this one. There *might* be a mention of your love for David ;)

Dalton Diaz said...

This is a premise I LOVE in books, and what a treat for you to get to revisit old friends.

Can't wait to read it, so give a mighty shout when you get that release date, please.

Dalton Diaz said...

Oh, and holy moly, that cover is hot - and I'm not talking about the FL sunshine!

Michelle Polaris said...

You are very lucky to have your personal vision come true on the cover. It's beautiful. And how wonderful to be able to take a great story and grow it into an even greater one. Congratulations!

Savannah Stuart said...

Thanks Dalton, it's one of my fave premises too. Anything that has friends to lovers I go crazy for :)

Savannah Stuart said...

Thanks Michelle. It was fun revisiting these characters again :)

What a gorgeous cover, Savannah. Congratulations :)
