Being the cover hussy that I am, this meme is just one for me!
The cover that I picked this week is the one from Samantha Kane's Love in Exile.
Why this cover? This book is the sixth one in a series of historical romances about ménages and it was released in one of the last months of 2009. The other five covers are less dark than this one and all picture three models. The male model on this cover isn't perfect looking imo (I like that) but has again a gorgeous tattood torso (last week's model had one too). Only this tattoo is looking more like a tribal one, which are my favorite kind...
Gregory Anderson has reluctantly returned to England after more than seven years sailing the world and cataloging new discoveries. He's there to visit old friends and present the finding of his travels to the Royal Society.
Half-Polynesian Gregory is caught between two worlds. He isn't looking for love. He's only looking for a warm body with a modicum of wit and reasonable intelligence to help him get through the few short months he'll be in England.
Nat and Alecia Digby married when they were young and foolish. An arranged marriage to please their parents led them to take lovers, and their marriage was almost ruined before it began. But through the actions of a mutual friend and lover Nat and Alecia found their way back to each other. They don't want to give up the erotic games they learned to play and to enjoy, but they won't risk their marriage again by falling in love with someone else. And they won't hurt anyone else they love by asking them to endure the pain of being an outsider in their marriage.
When the three are introduced by a mutual friend they think it will be nothing more than a night or two of shared pleasure and erotic thrills. But the unthinkable happens, because love refuses to be forced into exile.
