Cover Deliciousness!

I got the final cover for Scandal yesterday: feast your eyes, peeps!

Cover of Scandal by Carolyn Jewel, Feb 2009, Hot shirtless man, lady in purple Empire gown that's falling off.

Cover Blurb

The earl of Banallt is no stranger to scandal. But when he meets Sophie Evans, the young wife of a fellow libertine, even he is shocked by his reaction. This unconventional and intelligent woman proves to be far more than an amusing distraction– she threatens to drive him to distraction. Unlike the women who usually fall at Banallt’s feet, and into his bed, Sophie refuses to be seduced. And soon Banallt desires her more than ever– and for more than an illicit affair.

Years later, the widowed Sophie is free, and Banallt is determined to win the woman he still loves. Unfortunately, she doesn’t believe his declaration of love and chivalrous offer of marriage– her heart has already been broken by her scoundrel of a husband. And yet, Sophie is tempted to indulge in the torrid affair she’s always fantasized about. Caught between her logical mind and her long-denied desire, Sophie must thwart Banallt’s seduction– or risk being consumed by the one man she should avoid at all costs…

    Thanks so much! I <3 this cover. It captures the emotion of the book perfectly.

    And Sophie and Banallt were a long time getting their story done right.

    A beautiful cover, with one comment: when we say the cover is hot, is that why their skin tones are so red? Will they be so red in the final version, or is this a function of my PC?

  5. Carolyn says:

    Susan/dc (and how are you these days?) I think that reddishness is a function of your monitor and video card. On the cover flat they’re not red and when I look on my iMac or PC it’s OK. You may end up waiting for the actual book to get the full effect.

    Great lettering, nice hands, and love the color of her dress. Hopefully this book is out soon; been looking forward to another Jewel historical for ages!
