Tawny Taylor's Mark of the Beast & Tag Lines

This is a book being released by fellow Romance Diva, Tawny Taylor. It's coming out July 26th. I'm putting it up because I like the cover. Yes, I'm shallow like that sometimes. ;) But seriously, hot cover, no?

I also like Tawny's tagline - Red Hot Fiction With Sassitude. Anybody want to come up with a cool tagline for me? Just generall, do you think taglines work??

Here's the blurb:

City girl Abby Clumm wouldn't normally travel to remote cabins in Alaska alone. But with the expectation that her friend will be arriving shortly, she makes the journey to their rented cabin solo. Unfortunately, things don’t go as she plans--no real surprise there, when do they?--and her first night she finds herself alone in the boonies, a shotgun she doesn’t know how to use and a failing wooden door the only things standing between her and some kind of very hungry animal outside. She’s now caught in a battle for survival.

Research scientist Tarik Evert has no idea what’s wrong. He’s suddenly driven by a need so urgent it’s painful. The scent of a woman nearby beckons him, sends him staggering outside into the cold. And then somehow he’s at her door, not sure what just happened...or what is about to happen if she lets him inside.

He only knows one thing--the hunger that brought him to her in the first place.

So, have you seen any nice covers lately?

Gena Showalter's cover for The Nymph King is very nice. I really like this one for Tawny, though.

Emma Sinclair said...

That is a very nice cover.

I blogged about tag lines not to long ago. I love the "sassitude" tag line, BUT what I've found is that I can remember the tag line, but can't necessarily remember what author goes with what tag line.

So I'm not convinced they're really that helpful. In a bookstore its better to remember an authors name than a tagline.

Sara - I love that Nymph King cover too. Evocative and sexy at the same time.

Emma - hmm, good point about the tag line vs name. I guess the best ones would incorporate the name into the tagline?

I'm not particularly into tag lines. I think most of them are pretty pointless. Actually, I can only remember one off the topic of my head: Camy Tang's "romance with a kick of wasabi." I think they may only work if you've got especially branded fiction (like Camy writing about Asian heroines).
