Seductive Museum: My favorite cover for October 2009

Thursday, October 29

My Seductive Museum Cover Art pick for the month of October is....All Jacked Up by Lorelei James


I've loved all of the covers in the Rough Riders series by Lorelei James. All of them are bold and always seem to capture the spirit of the characters in each novel. They also have a very unique and distinctive look that is a signature brand for the Rough Riders series. I know if I were to see this cover from afar in a bookstore, that it would be a Lorelei James Rough Riders book.

With the colors, graphics and fonts it gives a subtle hint that this book will be set in the American west.  I always think of those saloon pictures that you can have taken while on know the ones where you get to dress up and pretend you lived in the wild wild west, except these have a modern twist that eliminates the "cheesy" aspect of those photos and leaves you with a sexy and sultry memorable impression. 

The cover for All Jacked Up does not show the hero's face Jack...and I like that.  I can picture him in my mind how I want him to look.  The woman in the photo embodies exactly how I would have pictured the heroine Keely.  I like that the photo seems intimate, like a stolen moment in time, without being overtly sexual or graphic.  I think it is pretty much perfect....much like all of Lorelei's Rough Riders series.  

If you haven't read them yet I highly recommend them, but be forewarned, you should read them in order, and fall is the perfect time to read them as the weather gets colder, because these books definitely bring the heat!  Lorelei James is one of my favorite authors and never disappoints.  She is my go to author for sexy, steamy, emotional romances with lots of heart.

All Jacked Up, book #8 in the Rough Riders series, releases next week as an e-book on Nov. 3, but is available for pre-order at Books on Board(click on the cover to pre-order). I hope you join me next week for an interview with Lorelei to discuss this book and a whole lot more. 

  • Share your favorite romance novel cover from any of the romance novels you’ve read this month, and remember this has nothing to do with the actual content of the book…just the cover.

  • The romance novel can be a new release, a current release, or an older book. As long as it is in print, it is available for purchase (no preorders), and is classified as a romance then it qualifies (historical romance, contemporary romance, paranormal romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance...).

  • Present your book cover art on the last Thursday of the month (barring any special events) on your blog using the Seductive Museum icon and following these participation rules. Tell us what you love about the cover, and then link your choice to the current Seductive Museum Gallery.

  • The following week I will compile a list of the submitted book covers and I'll have a poll where you can vote for your favorites. At the end of the year I will list the top book covers for each month and you can vote for the top 5 covers of the year. Once the masterpiece of the year has been chosen we will honor the author and the cover artist with an award.

You picked a homerun with Lorelei. I love the series, I didn't find them until about year ago but I quickly read everything she had and I am chomping at the bit to get All Jacked Up. Thanks for featuring Lorelei, I don't think she is as mainstream as she deserves. Have a great day!

Hi Angela,

I just found Lorelei this year, and like you once I read Long Hard Ride I was addicted and didn't read anything else until I had read her backlist and became one of her adoring fans that eagerly anticipates each new release.

Can't wait for her Blacktop Cowboy series...I definitely think she will get mainstream recognition with her new series!

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
