Cover Reveal – White Water Passion by Dawn Luedecke @d_luedecke @SDSXXTours

 
White Water Passion
by Dawn Luedecke
Genre: Historical Romance, Western
 
The Montana Territory is one of the last outposts of the American
West—where adventure as grand as the wide-open plains is around
every corner, and passion as wild as the land itself beats in every
heart . . .
Elizabeth Sanders isn’t afraid of anything, except what will happen to her
beloved town if the Big Mountain Lumber Mill is destroyed. When she
overhears a plot to do just that, she vows to put a stop to it, even
if it means dressing as a young lumberjack to expose the saboteur.
There’s only one problem with her plan—her brother’s handsome
friend and fellow logger Garrett Jones, who arouses a desire within
her soul as fierce as the river rapids.
When Garrett discovers that the odd new lad on the crew is in fact Beth,
he’s shocked. A logging camp is no place for a young
woman—especially the spirited beauty he’s admired for so long.
Keeping her safe is easier said than done, however, as the attraction
between them flares into true passion. As the danger mounts, Beth and
Garrett must work together to survive the last log run down the wild
rapids and claim any chance of saving the mill—and their chance at
a future . . .
 
 
A country girl born and bred, Dawn Luedecke has spent
most of her life surrounded by horses, country folk, and the wild
terrain of Nevada, Idaho and Montana. She enjoys writing historical
and contemporary romance and spends as much time as she can working
on her current manuscript. For more information

Blitz Tour for The Cowboy and the Vampire by Hays & McFall

The_Cowboy_and_the_Vampire_Banner_450_x_169The title of The Cowboy and the Vampire by Hays and McFall had me chuckling to myself. That made me feel like I had to participate in this tour for a vampire story of a different kind.

Let ‘er buck!

The Cowboy and the Vampire Reboot

 The phrase “you can’t judge a book by its cover” is a lie. It’s a damn lie. People do it all the time. Art is truth.

To mark the upcoming May 2014 release of the third book in The Cowboy and the Vampire Collection, the series was treated to a gothic western makeover, with artwork commissioned exclusively for the series.

“We wanted to give readers something special and the new covers get right to the heart of the series,” said co-author Hays. “Go on and judge the books by these covers! They bring together the paranormal and the western elements perfectly, setting a dark tone with just a hint of the humor.”

“Each time you look at the images, you see something a bit different, even more of the opposites-attract romantic theme pops, and the overtones of simmering passion,” said co-author McFall.

Get caught up on the love between Tucker and Lizzie now before the release of book three.

“Strong writing, funny characters … riveting.” – Kirkus Reviews 

Welcome back to LonePine, Wyoming. It’s like any other slowly dying town in the modern American West. Except it’s suddenly lousy with vampires.

Cultures clash as the vampire illuminati ride into town to settle ancient scores, test loyalties and thrash out a new world order. Can the fragile relationship between a cowboy and a vampire survive lust, betrayal and country music?

Grab the reins and hold on tight as Tucker and Lizzie stampede through rural America and across the vampire afterlife, desperate to protect their unlikely love.

 A Tangled Publishing History

 The first book of this series, A Very Unusual Romance, was published in 1999, long before the vampire craze. With comparisons to Anne Rice and Zane Grey, the book gained a devoted following with initial sales of more than 10,000 print units. Fast forward a decade, and the publisher (Llewellyn) brought out the book as a second edition in 2010, aiming to capitalize on the Twilight mega-hit. Meanwhile, the authors wrote the second book in the series — Blood and Whiskey — bringing it out under their own imprint (Pumpjack Press, 2012). In 2013, they gained the rights back for the original book, and now, with book three poised for publication in May 2014, the restored Cowboy and Vampire series has been redesigned with exclusive art and is coming out for the first time in 15 years as a complete collection. Yippi-ki-yay!

About the artist

When asked about his biggest artistic influences, Aaron Perkins says there are too many to name, but when pressed mentions Gustav Klimt, Modigliani and the full-on art deco and nouveau movements, abstraction expressionism and surrealism. Aaron is also a big fan of concert poster art. That heady and diverse collection of inspiration shows up in The Cowboy and Vampire Collection covers.
