Who Loves Good Timing?

I think the title kind of says it all. I mean, I could've titled this blog: Who DOESN'T Love Good Timing? but that seemed too negative so I went the other way. (I'm stalling.) But really, it's not very often I'm scheduled to blog when I also have a new cover and new release in the near future, so I'm glad this month timed out perfectly.

I don't know about you, but life's been kicking my ass lately. I've been spending crazy hours at the hospital with my sister after her 2 day back surgery (and even an unexpected day in the ER with my aunt) so to say my brain is fried is putting it mildly. Truly, I'm up to HERE with hospitals. (Imagine my hand waaaaay over my head!)

I'm so thrilled that I get to share some great news by way of a cover reveal! Yay! Here's my new gorgeous cover for A Little Danger! It's the latest installment in my Adrenaline Highs series and the first novella in the series as well. I am seriously in love with it!
What do you think?
The heroine is a little older than our hero and she's very conflicted with crushing on a younger guy. And really... he's not even that much younger in the scheme of things. Here's the blurb:


Elena Fraser is on her way to the airport to catch a flight to New York for the premiere of her daughter’s movie. Before limo driver Bill “Fido” Fidelo can make it to the freeway, a 7.1 earthquake collapses the overpass above and traps them. With nothing but time between frightening temblors, Elena and Bill learn more about each other, including the fact they’ve lusted after each other for years. 


Understanding they might not survive, Elena and Bill look to one another for solace and companionship. Bill tries to convince Elena that their seven-year age difference means nothing to him, and Elena soon realizes that life is too short to put off living. 


The passion they discover is enough to torch the limo they’re trapped in, but can rescuers save them in time, or will a final aftershock bury them before they have a chance to build a life together?  

I hope to get this novella out in April, but it might take a magic wand since more hospital time is in my future. LOL. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me, people! 

Back to the cover... I LOVE the way she's looking at him. Like she might eat him up in one bite! Oh, but I LOVE the colors too!  What's your favorite thing about the cover?

Beautiful cover! There is such passion in that gaze they're sharing.

Sorry about the things life's been throwing at you, and hope great things are around the corner, especially with this shiny new release! :D

Hi Dee
Sounds like a great story. Earthquakes are so believable in CA! And I always love an older heroine story. Wishing you all good things. :)

Dee J. said...

Hi Anne Marie,
Thank you! I agree! I just love the way she's looking at him. I'm looking at this new release to give me a little more joy. Haha. Thanks!


Hi Charlene,
I've been toying with the earthquake idea for a long time, so I thought I'd just do something about it! My editor has never been through one and she said she felt like she had after reading this story. That made me happy! I love Elena and Bill! They are smokin' hot together. Thanks for coming by!

Samanthe Beck said...

Hi Dee,

I can just picture you with your hand waaaay over your head! I hope your sister makes a speedy recovery and you say goodbye to hospitals for a long, long time.

On the plus side, you have a gorgeous cover that's every bit as sexy and dangerous as your story. Love the colors, the hot-and-heavy couple front and center. I'm excited for April!

Hi Samanthe,
From your mouth to God's ears! I'm sitting in the hospital as I type this! I am so DONE with them. I keep looking at the cover to cheer up. LOL. Thanks for coming by!

Great cover, Dee! Congrats on the upcoming release. Hope hospitals will soon be a thing of the past for you.

Robena Grant said...

Sorry about all of issues you've been dealing with. It's strange how life does that. It gives you one serious thing to deal with and then adds a bit more.
Anyway, love the cover. Congrats! The colors are eye-catching, and it tells a steamy story. ;)

Toni Anderson said...

Fabulous cover, Dee! I'm not surprised the heroine wants to eat the hero up. Excellent cover! Congrats--and sorry about the hospital visits. :(

Allison Morse said...

Great cover! And the story sounds sexy and suspenseful. I can't wait to read it.

I hope everything with your family turns out well and there are no more hospital visits.

Dee J. said...

Hi Marcelle,
Thank you! I hope you're right! Nothing I'd like more than to never visit another hospital! Thanks for dropping in!


Hi Robena,
Thanks! I love the colors too! And life is definitely weird. The ups and downs are great at testing us, aren't they? Ugh. Thanks for coming by!


Hi Toni,
Thank you! I really love the way the two of them are looking at each other. I see some steamy windows in their future. LOL. Thanks for stopping in!


Hi Allison,
Thanks! Glad it sounds good! I hope you're right and this is the end of the hospital visits for a long time. Thanks for dropping in!

What I like about the cover, Dee? Lots of things--the colors, the fonts, and your name in lettering as big as the title, and the fact that the H and H look sexy with their clothes on.

Dee J. said...

Hi Jean,
OMG! I love all those things too! Haha. You know, I hadn't thought of it like that, but you're right! It's a crazy sexy cover and all their clothes are on! (Well...mostly! His are on the way off, but still!!!) Thanks for swinging by!

Tanya Hanson said...

Hugs and prayers that things slow down a bit and that your sis's recovery is soon and quick.

I love "older" heroines...isn't it funny though, no one would think a hero seven years older is that big of a deal. Grrrrr.

Great cover. xo

Dee J. said...

Hi Tanya,
Thanks! I hope you're right, and life evens out a little. I would not complain about that. Haha. I agree about the age difference thing. I hope the double standard doesn't so much apply anymore... Thanks for coming by!
