Osiyo~

Welcome one and all!

As many of you may know, I began renovating UCM in January with new and exciting improvements. I had planned to get everything back up and working by February 1, but life decided that would not happen. Last summer I tore three tendons in my right shoulder and it took until February to get surgery approved through Worker’s Compensation. But, on March 24th I finally got the surgery and now I’m back in physical therapy, and feeling better each day. It still hurts to do a lot and I have more PT and a long recovery road ahead (so I’ve been told), but I’m able to work on the pc enough to get something accomplished when I need to, even if it takes a few days. :lol; So on this lovely June day, I welcome my guest authors with their beautiful covers to the new and improved UnCover Monthly!

In the meantime, go HERE to get the application, then hurry and submit your covers for 2017! Remember, the early bird gets the earliest slots. 😀

For now, enjoy more awesome cover art by the incredible authors, publishers 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 (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. 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/. :)

Grad student and New Orleans ghost tour operator Julie Deveaux is used to believing in things she cannot see. Although with her family history, spirits lurking beyond French Quarter galleries seem more plausible than true love or soul mates.

With romantic entanglements the last thing on her mind, Julie would do anything to complete her thesis research and exonerate infamous murderess Sophia Durocher in the process. Anything, that is, except further harass Sophia’s already spotlight-weary family.

However, a collision in Jackson Square puts her in the path of infuriatingly handsome fellow history-buff Griffin, and Julie is unable to ignore her attraction. After they accidentally exchange copies of a rare book, Julie gets insights into Griffin, revealing someone who grapples with the same big questions as she does. But when Griffin turns out to be the grandson of her thesis subject, Julie walks a dangerous line. He could be the key to all of the answers she seeks. But solving Sophie Durocher’s mystery could mean losing the one man who makes her rethink her belief in soul mates.

They spend one blissful night consummating their love, looking forward to a promising future together.

Yet Geoffrey vanishes the next day. Merryn is left lonely and confused as she clings to the hope that one day her husband will come back to her. Geoffrey finally returns almost seven years later. This new Geoffrey is a stranger to Merryn. He refuses to reveal where he has been and why he stayed away from the woman he loved.

Will her husband’s silence create a rift too large to heal, or can Geoffrey and Merryn recapture the love they once shared?

Join Geoffrey and Merryn as they fight for the love both have held in their hearts despite their years apart.

Release date: January 2016

Is it coincidence or karma that lands a stubborn loner in an animal shelter run by his soulmate? In this sensual contemporary romance novella (the third in the dog-lovers’ “Klein’s K-9s” series), two deserving people discover there’s so much more to life than work.

After a night of raucous partying in a North Carolina town, country music star Ryan “Rowdy” Gates is sentenced to two months of community service at the Jenkins Animal Shelter. The last thing he expects is to bond with the caring shelter workers and nurture an abandoned puppy. The biggest surprise, however, is seeing his secret high-school crush all grown up and in charge of the shelter. Fifteen years ago, she was way out-of-his-league. Is it possible life has handed him a second chance?

Shelter director Cindi Landon has dreamed of Ryan since she was sixteen. How can she supervise his court-ordered work when just being near him makes her body sing. He’s returning to Nashville in sixty days, and she’s not sure which she’d regret more—letting this chance to be with him slip away or starting an affair that could leave her heartbroken. But when she sees him bottle-feeding a tiny Basset Hound puppy named Buddy, Cindi knows it’s already too late to protect her heart.

Cindi and Buddy offer Ryan something he’s never had—a home, a family, and unconditional love.
