Clash of the Covers 07-06-09

Welcome to the new and improved Clash of the Covers (COTC)! We’re changing things up a bit and moving COTC to Mondays. We will be keeping the Clash open all week and announcing the winner on the following Monday. Our selections will continue to be eye-catching, with embedded links in the covers to either the author’s website or a buy link. Whenever possible, we’re going to let the author’s know that their covers are in our contest. So if we are lucky, we might even get a surprise guest (or 2, or 3) in our comment section!


So, here’s the contest for this week. It’s tough. I think they’re all gorgeous!


Dawn’s pick:

What Dawn says: I’ve always loved this cover. When I filled out the cover art form for my own novel, Heaven Scent, I sent this cover with it. Basically I said, “I want something like this. Thank you.” LOL What can I say? I’m still stuck on male torsos. Is there therapy for that?


Barbara’s Pick:

What Barbara says: The second I saw this cover I knew I had to put it up on the Clash. I love the quality of light filtering down through the trees. I love the hero’s tense stance and I love that he’s a mysterious, possibly dangerous silhouette. This cover made me want to take a walk in the woods, heart racing, pulse pounding, waiting to see what might step out of the shadows. Love it!


Suzanne’s Pick:

What Suzanne says:The cover artist who did this, Natalie Winters, also did Spyder’s Web. Ever since I saw what a great job she did for me, I’ve been on the lookout for her work. She doesn’t disappoint. I love the use of fog on this cover. The token man torso is really eye catching (yeah Dawn, I think we both might need to join that support group 🙂 ). The wonderful tattoo makes me want to learn more about him and his story. Great cover! 

 Now it’s your turn. Which one is your favorite?

    Yep, the Fury…
    I think it’s the creases in the jeans and the exposed forearms… Num.

  2. As always, great picks ladies! Oh how I love the clash. I’m so glad it’s going to be a week long contest from here on out. All these wonderful covers make EtS such an intriguing place to be. I’ve already discovered several new authors:>

  3. Natasha A. says:

    I have to go with Cat of a Different Color.

  4. I have to go with delicious male torso and the Big Cat.
    Though, I really like The Fury, the more I look at it…
    Still… Pumas… yum-meow…

  5. Cat of a different color is really HOT!

  6. Amy S. says:

    The Fury – Sloan McBride

    Love the colors on this one!

  7. cathiecaffey says:

    That was hard! I ended up with going with Sloan McBride’s THE FURY. Loved how real and rugged those jeans were. And they look so good on him 🙂

  8. Anna Hackett says:

    The Fury – the jeans, the tattoo, the body under the jeans…all very sexy.

  9. Cyntia King says:

    Definitely The Fury for composition and emotional response.

    The fog punches up the title and the title typeface is eye-catching.

    The long, lean male torso shows just enough – and leaves just enough to the imagination – to make you hungry for more.

    Love the tattoo – again just enough without jumping off the cover.

    And it’s sexy!

    • Everyone, thank you so much for your support. I was thrilled to see the cover when I got it. It totally encompasses Dagan, the hero of the story. Yum, and Grrrrrr was all I could say.
