Two New Reviews!

YAY! And BIG THANX to Pudgy Penguin Perusals (click on the title of this post to go there) for giving me TWO great reviews in the past couple of weeks!

Here's part of what the reviewer said about The Wild Sight:

"I loved the setting and the budding sensual romance between the two main characters. The mystery of who really is Rylie's father and why he abandoned them. Also liked the lesser characters a lot; Donovan's father Dermot and his sister Doreen. They really add to the plot as Donovan suspects they know more than they are saying about the day Donovan's mother disappeared. There is an element of the paranormal in this book too that really fit into the story in a big way."

And here's part of the review of The Treasures of Venice:

"I loved the setting; rich descriptions transported me right into the scene.
Two concurrently running plot lines centuries apart; one in the present with characters who may be the reincarnation of the characters from 1485 time line.
The intrigue and adventure of the characters', main and minor, dangerous search for the jewels from renaissance Venice."

Surprisingly, she is one a the few who did not like the cover of TToV. I guess the jeans were a little too low-slung, and too much bare chest revealed. Oh well... Luckily we all like different things!

I'm anxiously awaiting the cover for The Wild Irish Sea, which will be released SIX MONTHS FROM TODAY! HURRAY! Considering the current cover trends, I expect the cover will have a bare male torso on it somewhere. LOL!

Do you judge a book by its cover? What kinds of covers are your favorites?

Well done on the reviews Aunty Cindy I loved both books from start to finish and I love the covers of both of them as well. A cover will make me pick up a book and read the blurb on the back but it is usually the blurb on the back that will make me buy the book or recomendations from my friends and from blogs.
Can't wait to see the cover of your new book

Have Fun

Congrats on more great reviews. I love stepback covers, but I also like the silhouetted covers seen on many romantic suspense books.

Hey Helen,
I never get tired of hearing you say that you love my books! ;-) I'm anxious for the new cover also, even though I don't think I've ever bought a book based on the cover. Like you, I buy a lot based on recommendations from friends.

I LOVE those step-back covers too! SOMEDAY, when I'm up there in the big leagues...
