Blurb for JUST BREATHE:
He sacrificed his soul to the devil he hates to spare the heart of the woman he loves…
After a terrible accident rocks the foundation of their relationship, Gavin Cassidy, leader of the Sentinels who protect humans in Australia, and whale biologist Zoe Morgan call it quits on their short-lived affair. He can’t come to terms with the trust he inadvertently shattered, and being with him is killing her. Literally.
But love is a powerful motivator, and neither biology nor misguided oaths sworn to mortal enemies is strong enough to keep them apart, despite the fact their new paths are on a collision course that can only end badly. When Gavin’s illicit alliance with his most hated foe threatens to betray millions of innocents to ruthless Fyre Elementals, Zoe vows to sacrifice everything – including the whales she loves – to stop him from making the biggest mistake of his life.
I love Claudia’s covers!
This is both amazing and gut-wrenching. The care that went into this cover is awesome and well worth it. Gorgeous! I almost cried. Thanks so much for sharing the story with us. I have to add it to my TBR list now!!
Wow that’s a lot of work on the cover. I prefer to just go to a stock images site and pay like $20 for a picture.
I love the behind the scene action. Nice. Love the artwork.
That is a lot of work for a cover. I like the behind-the-scenes glimpse you showed us here…kinda in the spirit of “This is what you need to do to make a kickass cover.”
This was a fun post. I loved seeing the inside workings of cover art. 🙂
Thank you for sharing my newest “baby” with the world, Laura!
And thanks to everyone else for the sweet comments. I’m very picky about my covers, and I couldn’t find the right images I wanted, so I turned to the experts for help. I feel that the money I put in was well spent. 🙂
That painting is amazing! The book sounds fab too 🙂
Wow! What a great cover!
I love the cover… what a creativity.
LOVE IT. And love that Vonetta Barry does this for a living. I went onto her site – maybe I’ll get it done sometime 🙂
This is so cool! I’m especially interested since I’m reading Inhale. Right. Now. And loving it. Beautiful job all around!
