Cover Spotlight: Burning Dawn by Gena Showalter

by Gena Showalter, author of Burning Dawn

My heart always seems to skip a beat when I receive an email from my editor and the subject line reads, “Book cover!” My palms sweat and I chew on my bottom lip as I open the attachment to see what image the art department has selected to represent my story and characters.

Two words can describe my reaction to the BURNING DAWN image. Hormone overload. I drooled. I pet the screen. I contemplated licking the male model. How could I not? He seduced me with his eye-smolder, but forever sealed the deal with his touch-my-woman-and-die-horribly vibe. I even told my editor I needed to meet the guy—for promo reasons only, of course. Readers would love it, I just know. (hint I’m still waiting for a yes hint) (hint readers help me out hint)

I’ll give as many hints as necessary to make this happen LOL

I hope you adore the cover as much as I do. To me, the guy perfectly encapsulates everything about the hero of the story—tormented yet sizzling, Thane is the most ruthless assassin in the skies. As for the heroine…well, I’ve been told there’s a girl somewhere on the cover, perfectly encapsulating the vulnerable yet feisty Elin, but I haven’t been able to pull my gaze fromThane’s face to check.

Be sure to let us know your thoughts!

About the Book

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with a sizzling Angels of the Dark tale about a winged warrior renowned for his ruthlessness, and the woman who becomes his obsession….

A tormented past has left Thane with an insatiable need for violence, making him the most dangerous assassin in the skies. He lives by a single code: no mercy. And as he unleashes his fury on his most recent captor, he learns no battle could have prepared him for the slave he rescues from his enemy’s clutches—a beauty who stokes the fires of his darkest desires.

Elin Vale has her own deep-rooted scars, and her attraction to the exquisite warrior who freed her challenges her every boundary. But Thane’s unwavering determination to protect her means she must face her greatest fears—and enter a world in which passion is power, and victory means breathtaking surrender.

    […] Gena Showalter recently blogged about her uber-enthusiastic reaction to the cover reveal of her latest Angels of the Dark paranormal series and – holy crap! – we can see why she loves it. Burning Dawn is now available for pre-order with a release date of April 29, 2014 and please note that the paperback version is significantly less right now than the Kindle version if you are open to the format you receive it. This series features violent angels on the brink of darkness who each find a woman who helps them find meaning in their fight for goodness and light – so good! […]
