The impossible quest for cover art…

It’s time to play, find that cover art! The first and second drafts of Irresistible Attractions, Rod and Cane Society 6, have been completed and I’ve contacted a graphics artist to design the cover. As always, I like to give her inspiration photos so she can “see” what I’m thinking. But first, I have to find the photos.

Join me on my quest for  a “sexy couple” (the search term).

Elvis! You ARE alive.

Is he trying to push her off the ledge or what?

Damn, I wish there was a motorcycle in my story.

Totally opposite MY story.

Geeks are in, but not this geeky.

I wish I’d found THIS when I did the cover of Body Politics. This is Stephanie and Mark to a T!

Argh…A little too much skin.

Sensual…or dead?

Feeling horny?

Alas, I did not find anything suitable from my search. I did send the artist links to some other book covers I liked.

The one picture that truly conveys the tone and mood of Rod and Cane 6, Irresistible Attractions, is one I can’t use. I would be thrown into the Amazon dungeon never to surface. This is a photo I’ve had on my Pinterest board for a while. Take a peek if you dare (NSFW).

Watch for Irresistible Attractions in mid May or June.

Irresistible Attractions blurb

rcs logoAn “oops” baby born late in her parents’ marriage, Hannah Laurie never received the love or acceptance she needed, but she’s determined to make something of herself. Living on a shoestring, she’s paying her way through college by working nights for a cleaning service. Among its clients is the Rod and Cane Society of domestic discipline practitioners. As Hannah cleans its mansion headquarters, with its bold display of implements and artwork glorifying discipline, she is drawn to idea of being spanked. Although she prides herself on following the rules, one evening while alone at the mansion, she surrenders to the impulse to try out the equipment in the secret disciplinary chamber.

Millionaire cybersecurity magnate Jordan Bevy, Rod and Cane’s disciplinary proctor, is responsible for ensuring the rules of the organization are followed to a T. Using the disciplinary chamber for personal pleasure is strictly forbidden. But when he catches the shy little cleaner girl trying out the equipment, what’s a fellow to do but bend the rules by giving her a hand?

But when their relationship deepens, their respective worlds collide and clash, throwing into doubt that a lowly cleaner girl can find acceptance in her rich boyfriend’s high-powered, monied world.

  1. I had to giggle at some of those, then I opened the one that would get you directly onto the Adult Tag Express – first class – making no stops along the way – and OMG…just OMG…

    And a pirate hat! I mean…a pirate hat! Yeah, that Don Draper pic? Hot but cover suicide. Figures.

    The quest continues. Love title choice 🙂

      The pirate hat cracks me up. What surprises me most is how many models look dead instead of sexy. Remember “heroine chic” from years back? The new trend must be necrophilia chic or snuff chic.
