Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Cover-Call! #UCM #shareyourcovers #MFRWAuthor


Osiyo~

Welcome one and all!

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS, however you might celebrate this season!

It’s time to wrap up 2017 and get ready to begin 2018. With that, I thought I’d post a new call for covers. 

I need lots and lots of covers to share from January 2018 forward!

Apologies, I don’t post erotica, or anything above a 4 heat level in content or cover image. You will find everything you need to show the world your covers at this link: https://calisarhose.com/uncover-monthly/

Please consider submitting your covers, and I’d appreciate if you would share the link with your loops and groups as well as this UCM showcase.

The next post will go live at midnight (CMT) Tuesday, January 2 (instead of Monday the 1st). We’d love to see new faces in the comments and in the showcase in the months to come.

Thank you!!! 

Now, meet our new family member, my five month old, three pound apple-head (notice how round and apple-like her head is?) chihuahua, Itsy-Bitsy Boop. Some of you might have heard earlier this Spring that my beloved Cocoa passed as quietly as she lived–and in my arms. It took a very painful eight months to feel my heart again, it seemed.

But then, I met Bitsy and my daughter gave her to me as an early, and ever amusing, birthday gift. No matter how much thoughts of my Li’l Miss Cocoa Rio still invade my days and nights, Bitsy is always ready to make me laugh and feel loved. And she’s ready for Santa! I’m just not sure if she’s waiting to offer the ultimate elf a gift of her monkey toy, or to taste him, or she’s hoping he might bring her a tasty snack. For his sake, I hope he brings a snack. Her little baby teeth are razor-sharp! 😆

Back to business! Welcome to Pen of the Dreamer, where I welcome guest authors with their beautiful covers on UnCover Monthly!

Go HERE to get the application, read carefully, then hurry and submit your covers! Remember, the early bird gets the prime slots. 😀

For now, enjoy more awesome cover art by the incredible authors and artists who make them possible for you to gaze upon each month.

It would be great if you leave a comment letting everyone know what you think about them and maybe even check out a few author links to meet those behind the books. Or just say hi. Don’t forget to tell your friends to stop by so they can appreciate some greatness, or get in on the fun, too!

This feature is only to highlight the authors and artists, instead of the actual book (though if you see one you want to buy I’m sure the authors won’t mind 😆 ). Enjoy this months’ covers to ogle and explore. If there is one provided, you can follow the artist links by clicking on the name, if there’s an artist link provided, to learn more about the amazing creators of these beautiful covers.

There’s a heat level rating for covers, one through four scale, for your benefit. You should never see a *5* rating on the Ranch since I don’t feature anything erotic in nature.

Some author links may be shortened due to the site format, but the hyperlinks are not. If any link does not work when clicked, please let me know so I can fix it asap. A note in comments or by email is good.

If there’s anything else you’d like to know about covers being revealed here, please don’t hesitate to let me know. You can leave it either in a comment or by my contact page https://calisarhose.com/say-hey/

After serving three tours in Afghanistan and one in Iraq, Stephan Granger is no stranger to risk and peril. When a woman shows up at his house rambling about ghosts, murder and assassins, his first inclination is to deem her wrong in the head and send her packing. But how does she know things that happened to him and his dear departed brother in their childhoods, secrets they never shared with anyone?
Soon after he invites her in to hear more about what really happened to Stuart, gunfire splits the air and shatters all the windows in the house. Someone is trying to kill them. Now they’re on the run from assassins while trying to find out who killed his brother and why they want him dead too.

Even amid murder and mayhem, sometimes you find love.

Her handsome boss rarely visits Snowflake Valley unexpectedly, plus he’s spending the holidays with his family. Or so she thinks…

A stormy Christmas Eve reunion leaves Michael seeking the solitude of his lodge, where he finds Amber in residence—and in trouble. Attempting to save her from her matchmaking family, he announces they’re a couple. His good deed backfires when they’re instantly included in each and every holiday event in town. So much for solitude. 

Only the more time he spends with the beautiful, cheery brunette, the more he yearns to make things real between them. But he and Amber want different things, and Michael could never be the family man she’s looking for.

Genre: Paranormal Romance       

Length: Novel- 109,000 words

Heat Level: 4    

Publisher: Hartwood Publishing

Cover artist: Hartwood Publishing

Release date: November 2017

For more than a hundred years, gifted humans of the uber-elite, ultra-secret Hell Runners Society have sworn to rescue lost souls from the First Ring of Hell. Thousands of misguided spirits have been saved and sent onto Heaven without one Soul Saver ever questioning the Society’s authority.

Until now.

Prudence Luckett trained almost her entire life to earn the prestigious position of Soul Saver. Just like her father. But once Jack Luckett became Chancellor, he wielded his power to prevent his daughter entering Hell’s First Ring. Her career stunted. Without explanation. Bent on circumventing her father’s orders, Pru swallows her pride and approaches Hell Runner’s only-ever demoted Soul Saver with a proposition. Though as arrogant and stubborn as he is sexy, she’s certain he’s like her—desperate to regain his good reputation as she is to create one.

Jesse Thorne rescued more souls than anyone else in the Society’s history, but lost everyone’s respect the day his former partner decided to punt the rules. Though forbidden by the boss, his partner chose to remain behind the Gate and search for the Legendary Door connecting Heaven to Hell. Jesse didn’t agree with his decision, but he kept his friend’s secret. The backlash resulted in accusations of negligence for leaving his partner behind. Worse still, he suffered a total shunning by all the other Soul Savers.

All, except one. The Chancellor’s irrepressible and smokin’ hot daughter, offering him a chance at redemption.
