MONDAY COVERS IT. Jennifer Jakes', RAFE'S REDEMPTION.
Happy Monday morn! As always, the weekend flew by. I hope you enjoyed yours as much as I did mine. What better way to start out your work week than by taking a peek at a fabulous book cover and learning a few details about its creation. Today’s MONDAY COVERS IT feature is the book cover for Jennifer Jakes’, RAFE’S REDEMPTION.
From Jennifer’s lips to my blog…
“I am so happy with the way the cover for RAFE’S REDEMPTION turned out. It blends the cold mountain setting with the heat of Rafe and Maggie’s relationship. I’m a still a fan of faces on the covers -- IF the artist matches the author’s description of the characters. And my artist, Angela Anderson did a wonderful job!
RAFE’S REDEMPTION won Best Book Cover at Happily Ever After Reviews for the month of March.”
RAFE'S REDEMPTION at a glance…
He rode into town to buy supplies, not a woman.
For hunted recluse Rafe McBride, the raven-haired beauty on the auction block is exactly what he doesn't need. A dependent woman will be another clue his vengeful stepbrother can use to find and kill him. But Rafe's conscience won't let him leave another innocent's virginity to the riff-raff bidding. He buys her, promising to return her to St. Louis untouched. He only prays the impending blizzard holds off before her sultry beauty breaks his willpower.
She wanted freedom, not a lover.
Whisked to the auction block by her devious, gambling cousin, and then sold into the arms of a gorgeous stranger, outspoken artist Maggie Monroe isn't about to go meekly. Especially when the rugged mountain man looks like sin and danger rolled into one. But a blizzard and temptation thrust them together, and Maggie yearns to explore her smoldering passion for Rafe.
But when the snow clears, will the danger and secrets that surround Rafe and Maggie tear them apart?
Sky here. LOVE the cover, Jennifer. Thanks so much for sharing!

Contest winners are selected by me using the random generator shown below. Each commenter who follows the rules given each week-whether it's to answer a question or simply comment-is assigned a number according to when they left their comment. For example: Jane comments first, then Sue, then Maria. Jane becomes #1, Sue #2, Maria #3. If the contest requires an answer to be left and Jane and Maria answer it, Sue does not, then Jane and Maria have entered the contest. Therefore, Jane is #1 and Maria is #2. Make sense? All numbers are then entered into the Random Generator. The number selected is therefore the winner. Make no mistake, I welcome those of you who choose not to enter the contest. Kind comments are always well received by visiting authors! Thanks so much. ~Sky
