Cover Reveal for Craving His Best Friend's Ex Katherine Garbera

One of my favorite parts of publishing is when I get an email from my publisher with the first glimpse of my cover.  I'm never exactly sure how my characters look, I feel them more than see them when I'm writing.  I definitely know their hair color, eye color, if they have a six pack or chubby thighs. :) But the way those features all come into play are sort of nebulous to me until I get the cover.

I was recently talking about covers with my good friend Eve Gaddy.  She always likes images that show her characters smiling at each other and I'm like ugh, no, I hate it when they are smiling.  I think it's because I really like an emotional book. One that packs a lot of punch right in the heart.  Of course, they will be happy and smile during the book but I want to see the moment before they find the happy-ever-after on my cover. I want that intense longing, the wanting each other but know that it's not going to be easy to fall in love with each other.  I want them to both be aware that the attraction between them is going to cost them.  That falling in love with each other will mean that they will never be the same.  Whew! That's a lot to ask of a cover. :)

Fortunately, the art department at Harlequin Books always delivers that for me.  And without further ado, her is the cover for Craving His Best Friend's Ex, my August release from Harlequin Desire.


What do you think?! 

What kind of covers do you like? Tell me in the comments below. I'm giving away autographed copies of The Tycoon's Fiancee Deal and Tycoon Cowboy's Baby Surprise to one lucky commenter.  

Happy Memorial Day!

Katherine

  3. Gorgeous cover. I can't wait to read this. As to what I like in covers -- that's hard to say as I can read a book with a plain cover having only the author name and book title. If I pay attention to a cover, I like it to reveal a little about the book.

  8. I prefer covers where you don't see the entire face of the characters. I like to use my imagination. It kind of ruins it for me when the models don't match my image of the characters.

    1. May, me too. If you see too much of their face sometime it ruins it!
