Scent Of A Man – the cover

Hi y’all,

Just got the cover through for my February release, SCENT OF A MAN, so had to share it *VBG*.

This story is a fantasy, so I love the way the scene and the colors that have been used evoke the setting and “feel” of the story. And as for the hero…. Yep, indeedy. Very, very happy with it!

What do you think?

(Available 1st Feb 2011 from Red Sage Publishing)

Joseph is a highborn Anglian noble living in a harshly religious society where the Council and their clerics enforce chastity, and women are oppressed and treated like chattels. Overnight, Joseph undergoes a rare transformation and becomes a Scentinel, a man who exudes powerful sexual pheromones that make him irresistible to females. His people believe he is evil and will execute him on sight. He’s on the run, starving and desperate. He has nothing more to lose–or so he believes.

He’s rescued by Liliana, a “morally corrupt” Europan woman with an agenda. She’s a creature even rarer than Joseph, a Null who can neutralize Scentinel pheromones. Her mission is to do whatever it takes to bring Joseph safely to Europan shores. There, he’ll join Empress Vashti’s elite band of Scentinel spies — provided he survives his training with his sanity intact, and learns how to suppress his pheromones at will. And falling in love with the man she must ultimately betray was never part of Liliana’s plan.

    Sonya — hi there! It’s changed quite a bit since you read the sample…. in a really good way, I hope!

      If the changes got it published they must be good (or bad depending on the character ) – Can’t wait even more now because it will be all new!
