Hey gals, I know there are some great book covers out there as well as some cheesy ones! I want to know if you have a favorite?

Post a picture of the cover or stepback.

I personally like stepbacks then I don't feel a need to flip the book over so my kids can't see the! LOL

Hi Dhestiny, a stepback cover is the one with two front flaps. Something like, on the main cover would be some artwork and then as you turn over, there would be another flap, with another picture. So its like two front covers!

Stepback covers are my absolute favs!

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Thanks, Sonia! I wondered what that kind of cover was called.

Some of LK's stepbacks are great, but can't find pics online of them! DANG IT!


message 8: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Those are beautiful, Heidi! WOW! And suggestive, too. Are those from her Soldiers series?

I've seen a couple stepbacks in books but can't recall which ones. I love beautiful book covers. Margaret Mallory's All The Kings Men series has beautiful covers, so does Bertrice Smalls Border Chronicles series.


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

Yep from her Soldiers trilogy.... Except the second to the last is from her new book coming out in Aug of this year called WICKED INTENTIONS, I can't wait for it!

Cheryl (ghemomma) | 900 comments Heidi- I like the ones on the couch that you posted. They are quite delicious!


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

Yep, Legend of the 4 Soldier, I'm sorry. LOVE LOVE LOVE all of her books and these stepback are so vivid, I thinkt hat whay i like them. Eloisa James has some good stepbacks too, will have to see if I can find them to post. SO does Victoria Alexander.


Cyn Mistress Kitty (beachlover) Ohhhh! Thanks for doing this thread. I LOVE setbacks especially Elizabeth Hoyt's. I've seen some great ones. I really liked the one with Kev but don't know how you can post it. I've seen some that are really cheesy too like Johanna Lindsay's with Fabio. LOL

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments See, I love those! I like visuals to go with the story. Now, if we could just get a visual of Mark's 10.5" ... umm... nevermind.

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments So, tell me about Sinful. It's says it's an erotic novel. What kind of sex does it have in it? Straight, homosexual, group, anal, oral, etc...

message 31: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments I've been putting off reading Addicted because it seems like it would be gutwrenching. Is it really emotionally draining?


message 32: by [deleted user] (last edited Mar 07, 2010 02:49PM) (new)

YES and YES .. it is totally emotionally draining .. but a dam good read .. its a little slugish to start with .. there is a hidden secret in the book .. that climaxes and when it does its "EXPLOSIVE" i couldnt guess what it was ..but im no sherlock holmes .. check my review

♥ Beth | 217 comments You will love Addicted Dhestiny! It is soooo good and worth the emotional pull, not to mention that Charlotte writes the best sex scenes I've ever read.

Ow yes .. she sure does... My fav is when she paint the explicit picture of lindsey i quote "stroking himself" ... you dont often hear that one!


Cyn Mistress Kitty (beachlover) Yes, I do like a man with a nice, firm butt (among other things).
Don't you just want to give it a little squeeze or slap?


Cyn Mistress Kitty (beachlover) Thank you Beth for these setbacks. I especially liked the first one. What does she have around her wrist? Tut, tut, was there a little bondage going on? Naughty, naughty.

...or a lick... *gasp* Did I say that aloud?


Cyn Mistress Kitty (beachlover) A little "alone time"? I laughed so hard that I think my neighbors will be showing up demanding to know what's going on.


Cyn Mistress Kitty (beachlover) I like the way you think.
