Senator Mine by Kerry Adrienne

What's the genre? What is it you like or don't like about this cover? Does it make you want to know more about the book? Does it make you want to BUY the book? Discuss.

  2. I L-O-V-E this cover!! I work with the cover artists and authors at Decadent Publishing and when this one came in, I was like Fierce in the last comment - licking and chewing definitely came to mind! Definitely in my top 5 covers that I've had the pleasure to "participate" in, LOL!

  3. This is a cool cover. It looks genuine, believable, and not cheap. I also like that the guy looks like a normal, good looking guy, and not a plastic super-model. He looks bad-ass, and gladiator-esq.

  4. This is a yummy cover. I like that it's very straightforward (not busy) because really you just need that intense man to look at. Gorgeous - and you can pretend that look is just for you. This is one of my favorite DP covers.

  5. I'm sorry folks, but I find this cover very off-putting. The man's skin is marbled and discolored. All that's needed is a little bloating and he'd look like a 3-day-old corpse.

    I hate to be so negative, but this really turns me off.

  6. thanks, guys! the cover artist is Mina Carter~ The genre is Time Travel (to Ancient Rome --that is where the engraving and marbling come in) The cover model is Francis J Cura (www.francisjcura.com) and he is an actor and opera singer, too, apparently. I adore the cover. Thanks, Mina!

  7. First glance, I really liked this cover though frankly, I had no idea of the genre.

    Typography is lovely, I like the color scheme, and I like his expression (and don't have a problem with the grunge-type effect on him).

    But his arm totally freaks me out. At first I didn't notice it, then it started to really bug me, and now all I can do is look at that arm. Part of it is a forced perspective problem, but he looks like he has an atrophied deltoid with a missing shoulder blade, then a hugely fat upper arm, and tiny forearm and hand. I think it's the biceps/triceps tie into the elbow that does it, almost as if the artist decided he wasn't quite muscular enough so artificially "inflated" that area. I think that's where the "bloated corpse" feeling Merrill wrote about comes in.

    If that arm was fixed, I'd like it.

  8. I can tell there is paranormal elements from his shimmery-marblesc skin. Very yummy indeed. The fact that it is set in Rome, I would buy it. Shameless fall of all things Rome here. :)

  9. I love this cover! The roman columns and the marble coloring reminds me so much of Ancient Rome.

  10. Good cover but lacks what type of genre.

    I sort of get a gay erotic feel to it.

  11. I thought Historical Fiction : Ancient Rome right away. I liked the cover. Good strong lettering. Wasn't sure what the 2 (gravestones?) were about. I got no hint that it was Sci-Fi, but maybe that's not significant. When I read Robin's thoughts about his arm, I took another look and I have to agree with her. Happily, I did not pick up a gay erotic vibe :)
