YOU CHOOSE my cover art!

I think by now many of you know I'm doing a huge relaunch in September. The first of those relaunches is Maiden Behind the Mask. It is relaunching September 3rd and I have until then to decide....old cover or new? Actually, let me rephrase that....YOU have until then to decide!

Leave a comment with your cover art preference for this historical romance novel. Which one grabs your attention and doesn't let go? Which one is more appealing? Which one says, "READ ME?" YOU vote!

And a random commenter will receive an Ebook copy of the book when it is relaunched!

First, the blurb:
When Catalina Rodriguez is attacked by a would-be rapist and rescued by the dashing Ricardo Garcia, she not only becomes more aware of the handsome man, but also vows that she'll never be a damsel in distress again. Using the timeless method of blackmail, she convinces her uncle to teach her to fight and becomes a masked crusader in the night, saving other damsels from robbers and rough handling.

However, scandalous rumors and dwindling funds force Ricardo and Catalina to marry. Not immune to each other's charms, their marriage starts fiery, but when one of Catalina's nightly escapades results in dire consequences, she is forced to spurn her husband's amorous advances…or reveal a secret that could turn him away from her forever.

Ricardo’s not a man to be cuckolded or left in the dark. Is his wife having an affair with El Capitan, the masked savior? If so…they will both pay.

And now.... cover one?

Or cover two?

YOU decide. Leave a comment below. Thanks for participating!


  1. Cover 2 is really nice... but I'd lose the white spotlight in the lower right corner. I do miss La Reina, though. :)

  2. I like cover number 2 but cover number 1 appeals a bit more. One thing that doesn't appeal to me is the text in the upper right corner of #2. Maybe if it was lower? The woman in #1 looks more like a maiden than #2. They are both nice however. Any chance you can post a larger one for #2?

  3. I prefer cover 1 it looks more real to me. It portrays what the book is about more than 2.

  4. #2 gets my vote! A sexy maiden in a mask. :)

  5. I like both, but I am a bigger fan of #2!!

  6. I think it depends on what you want to showcase more. Number one feels more to me like it suits the feel of your blurb. Darker, mysterious. She has something to hide and her eyes tell me there's a deep seated reason.

    The second one is more playful and flirty, but I have a hard time connecting to it. Personally, I like number one, just because the image speaks to me. It really fits your blurb quite well.

  7. I love both, but book 1 reminds me of Zorro, which may or may not be what you're looking for. I think I'll vote for book 2, but I would remove the circle of light in the right bottom corner. Not too sure what that light is supposed to represent, but I find it's not adding anything.

    My two cents...

  8. I love number 2. :)

  9. I prefer #1. I do like the mystery and the association with Zorro. I would like to comment about why I think that #2 would be a mistake. If you want to emphasize the strong woman image, this is not the one you should go with. The blurb "Every Hero Starts As A Victim" tells readers that she's a victim and emphasizes that fact.
