More Covers!

I had a great time with my son and his fiance on Saturday. Cake tasting went well and they found the perfect bakery, I think. Lunch was awesome. CPA Boy is one lucky guy :-)

Oh yeah, while we were at lunch, Wizard texted Fiance and asked her,  “Is Witch turning into Monster-In-Law yet?” Naturally she answered  “Yes.”

By the way Wizard, good luck finding your toy helicopter that you love so much. Just saying…

I know you’ve seen the first cover, but I’ll post all three covers so you can see them together. They were designed by super talented Patricia Schmitt aka Pickyme. She is not only amazing at creating covers, but professional in every way and so easy to work with. I’ve also included the book blurbs and probable release dates. But first, here is the tag line for The Plus One Chronicles:

A wicked proposition…

A sensual possession…

A dark obsession…

The Plus One Chronicles: Searing passion and fiery vengeance collide in three explosive books.

Feb 26 2013 Expected Release Date

Rich, sexy and volatile, Sloane Michaels has a dark agenda that keeps his heart on ice. His extreme wealth gives him the control he craves and his skills as an ex UFC fighter the tools he’ll need to extract his ultimate revenge. But when the woman he never believed he’d see again crosses his path, Sloane is caught between the vengeance he needs and a sexual conquest he craves.

Kat Thayne has been in survival mode for six years, hiding behind the sweet creations for her bakery. But when a random carjacking brings her face-to-face with her darkest fears and hottest fantasy, Kat is forced out of hiding and offered a dangerously passionate proposition. One she knows she isn’t strong enough to refuse.



May 28 2013 Expected Release Date

Savagely sexy billionaire Sloane Michaels ruthlessly controls his life and everything in it. Even his sex partners are carefully negotiated plus-one arrangements, including his latest, the fiery bakery owner, Kat Thayne. But Sloane’s control is challenged when his mentor becomes seriously ill, and his need for Kat, his need to possess her at all costs, rivals only his single-minded goal of vengeance for the murder of his sister.

After surviving an attack six years ago, Kat Thayne escaped her fears in the protective world of her beloved bakery. Then Sloane Michaels storms into her life, making her feel beautiful, strong and sexy. Yet as Kat pushes her boundaries and uncovers a dangerous secret in her past, Sloane’s controlling side emerges. Worried that Sloane will possess her mind, body and soul, Kat fights to keep her hard won independence. But just as Sloane demands her complete surrender, she discovers he has a dark side that could destroy them both.


September 24 2013 Expected Release Date

Sloane Michaels is obscenely rich, jaggedly handsome and obsessed with love and vengeance. But he can only have one, and it’s tearing him apart. The fiery baker who resurrected his heart or retribution for the twin sister who was his best friend his only family. But when Kat’s life is threatened, Sloane is forced to make a choice. Will he kill the one who murdered his sister or die to protect the woman he loves?

Kat Thayne can’t bear to watch the obsession for revenge destroy the man she adores. She knows she should run from him and never look back. But when she becomes a target for a stone cold killer, Kat has nowhere else to turn. She goes to Sloane for help, and in an instant she’s swept back into his world…and his bed. But as the fiery passion consumes them once again, and Sloane’s addiction to vengeance resurfaces, Kat is forced into the decision of a lifetime.


And there they are! I’m going to do my absolute best to say on my release schedule.

So how was your weekend?

    WOW! They are lovely covers. Tricia does such fine work. Love those blurbs too. You have me excited to read them :).

    I’m glad cake tasting went well (as if eating cake wouldn’t ;)). Happy they’ve found a good bakery too. My daughter-in-law struggled (she hates butter creme) but in the end all worked out well.

    Sounds like Wizard might have been in search mode yesterday trying to find the helicopter :).

    Nothing really happened here this weekend. So it was good :).

    Have a great day!

    Yay for cake testing! And I totally can’t picture you as a Monster-in-law. Heh, good for you on taking Wizard’s helicopter. That’ll teach him. ;o)

    Those covers look awesome, Jen. Let me know when you want the buzz to start ramping up. Tweets will be tweeted. Faces will be booked. Also, I’ll hit you up for a guest post over at The Guide. Your ‘street team’ will be good to go.

    Speaking of which, my guest poster today is our lovely fellow witch, Silver James – so stop on by! She’s talking about her leap into self-publishing, and it’s an awesome post. =o)

    Beautiful Cover work. And the story tags. OK I have to wait till they are written to read them. Write faster……No No put the selfish reader away. :lol:

    Helicopter What Helicopter?? :twisted: Men just don’t think about how fast we take revenge.

    I usually read in the laudry room. No one else at home wants to go there and do clothes so I am left alone. But I did not get any reading done. My son came down with the flu and my husband left on Sunday to go to Morgantown WVU hospital to see a specialist related to his diabeties. So reading had to wait while I put on the Florance Nightengale hat.

    Viki, Trish really is amazing. I love working with her.

    What did your daughter in law end up having on the icing? Stabilized whipped cream icing? Or maybe a fondant?

    Wizard deserves it. Although the truth is I burst out laughing when Fiance read me the text.

    Glad your weekend was calm–no disasters, illness or stitches is always a good thing.

    B.E., thanks, I’d love all the promo/word of mouth I can get! And I’ll definitely get to your blog to see Silver’s post. I wrote it down so I won’t forget. I’d love to guest post too. Carla’s arranging a blog tour, once I have those dates, then I’ll get with you on it.

    I sure hope I’m not Monster in Law! We really love her :-)

    Oh Kat, so sorry your son is sick! There’s so much of that going around. I hope he’s feeling better and you don’t get sick. I also hope your husband’s trip to the specialist is helpful for him.

    The first book is done, just going through the final proofreading now then off to the formatter. I’m getting started on the second book and hope to write it fast since I know the characters and story pretty well now. the wild card is my work for the Entangled publisher–that can throw my writing schedule for P-1 (my abbreviation for Plus One) off.

    Wizard loves that little helicopter!

    Holy cannelloni, Jen! Those are some hot covers and dang if I can’t wait to read those stories! You’re going to kill me by making me wait. But I will. Wow. Just…wow!

    Glad you found the perfect bakery. You need to remind the fiancee that the men in your life tend to gang up on you. She should totally stand with you! The girls need to have each other’s backs. Just sayin’… ;)

    P.S. I think that copter should stay disappeared for a LONG time! :twisted:
