We Are Over the Moon!

October 8, 2010

Robert Appleton and I are toasting each other across the Pond. We just received the awesome cover for our about-to-be released mystery sci-fi CLAIRE DE LUNE and wanted to share it with you. Trace Edward Zaber designed it and captured the book’s theme to perfection.

BLURB:
You’re invited to the galaxy’s most prestigious beauty pageant. Clothing optional. Romance and danger…fully provided.

Cocky young detectives Gerry Rappeneau and Sebastian Thorpe-Campbell arrive at the premier lunar resort expecting a week of eye candy and long massages. With a half-billion-credit purse up for grabs, this year’s pageant is the focus of a hundred worlds. And beauty isn’t the only thing in the eye of the beholder.

One contestant, Evelyn Lyons, is attacked and her assailant killed. Surely a simple case of a stalker gone mad, as nothing bad ever happens at the Selene contest. So the brochure says.

The closer Gerry gets to Evelyn, the more he is convinced she’s hiding something. His meticulous character sparks with her wild, sassy nature, and they embark on a torrid affair. Their forbidden romance isn’t the only thing set to ignite in Pont de Reves.

Sebastian’s infatuation with demure Claire Villiers, another contestant, threatens to put all four of them in harm’s way.

A deadly trail of corporate conspiracy, monstrous assassins and hot bikini wax is more than anyone bargained for in this incendiary erotic mystery. Get ready for some serious heat on the dark side of the moon.

Rob was the mastermind of this book and I am forever grateful he included me. Check out his website and blog Mercurial Times to learn more about this talented genius.

I’ll be back next week with another surprise from P.A. Brown. Until then…

Happy Writing!

    You’re right, he did capture it to perfection. Between that cover and the blurb, CDL is off to a *great* start.

    Hey, are you and Robert interested in a dual interview about the middle to end of November? I’ll ask the questions, send it to Sloane, she can answer them her way and send it on to Robert, who can add his own unique comments and send it back to me.

    This is truly a beautiful, beautiful book and I can’t wait to read it. What’s the due date again? 😉

    Thank you for the great offer, Beth. We’d love to do it.

    Our baby appears on November 7.
