Cold-weather covers for a warm season
First, the absolutely gorgeous cover for Bedding Down, a collection of erotic romance (or is it romantic erotica?) novellas with a winter theme. Sophie Mouette's contribution is "Hidden Treasure," a fun story that involves a Victorian house-museum, costuming, and clumsy criminal capers as well as sweet hot sex, and and we're proud as can be to be part of this collection. Appropriately, it's not out until December, but you can always pre-order!
Next is another wintry novella, "Pirate's Booty". This one is due out from Phaze on August 18. Two parallel stories--a New England pirate in 1712 trying to win back the childhood sweetheart who scorns his criminal career and a contemporary novelist and historian who let their different takes on colonial pirates get in the way of sexier common interests such as spanking and bondage--are drawn together by two things that haven't changed since the colonial era: Block Island, Rhode Island gets isolated from the mainland in blizzards. And there's nothing like getting snowed in together to force a bickering couple to find a way through their differences, and into a nice warm bed! (The cover's so new it's not even up at the Phaze website yet, but I'll link when it goes live.)

And since I'm bombarding you with pictures, how's this for an intriguing cover? The Mammoth Book of the Kama Sutra is one of the most unusual projects I've been involved with, and it looks like it's going to be gorgeous.
