So What Do You Think of This Cover?

I spotted a surprise new release of Chosen As the Sheikh's Wife at Amazon this week.

Authors are never informed of special or re-releases. We either pick them up on the internet or a couple of copies arrive (eventually) in the post.

This is a novella, originally released in an anthology called 100 Arabian Nights for Mills and Boon's centenary.

It's part of a new series called Mills and Boon "Shorts" and while the cover doesn't scream "sheikh" it does have my name in large letters which is always a treat.

My other novella, The Temp & the Tycoon, was the most downloaded romance on Amazon a while back (it said so in the Daily Telegraph of all places) and it's still selling well. Here's hoping that Violet and Fayad's story hits all the same buttons.

Here's a picture of Fayad, if that helps!

And here's what the story is all about.

After a mysterious object that Violet Hamilton found under a floorboard is valued by a TV expert, Sheikh Fayad al Kuwani comes to find her.  He knows that her discovery of the legendary dagger known as the “Blood of Tariq”, together with the revelation of her ancestry, puts her in great danger.  The only way he can keep her safe is to put her on his private jet, take her to his desert kingdom and … marry her.

And here's a link -

Lovely cover, Liz!
Probably not a Sheiky Cover but still very beautiful.

The cover is very youthful, Liz. And Fayad is drop dead gorgeous.
Lovely surprise for you!

I love that they're releasing these as ebooks! And thanks for the picture of Fayad :)

Liz Fielding said...

Thanks, Teresa. I'll be interested to see how readers respond to the cover.

Liz Fielding said...

I though the cover had a "young" look, too, Barbara. I've noticed M&B have pared down the cover look for their eBook releases.

Liz Fielding said...

There are ten books available at the moment, Lacey and it's going to be an ongoing project according to M&B. Terrific way for readers to try a writer new to them.

I love the covers of these new shorts. I think they capture all the romance of M&B, but have that contemporary romance edge to them that could appeal to readers who might not usually pick up a Mills and Boon.
