Much Ado About... A Cover!

I've been gnawing on my fingernails, squirming in my seat, totally anxious about what my cover for Stripped would look like. 

Don't get me wrong, at no time was I worried about receiving a bad cover.  I had every faith that Berkley would deliver something that held my vision.

They delivered above and beyond what I had expected!

And now I get to share it with all of you.  So... here she is!

I want to just frame it and hang it on my wall...  Oh wait!  It will be on my bookshelf (yours too!) in January!

And just to add a little more bonus to that beautiful cover, how about a bit of the official back cover copy?

Body of secrets...

As a member of the CIA's elite, Black Opals, Natalya Trubachev must live a lie, working undercover as the lover of Dmitri, a Russian mob boss.  His business is trafficking vulnerable Las Vegas strippers overseas for twisted sex games.  Natalya's business is to blow the ring wide open and bring down Dmitri and his American contacts.  But the stakes are raised when she learns that the next target is her own sister, Kate, a dancer in the famed club Fantasia.  Only now does Natalya realize how personal her mission has become, and how far she's willing to go to complete it.

Body of lies...

The manager of Fantasia is Brandon Moretti, an undercover detective who keeps a close eye on his girls, and an even closer one on his sinfully sensual hire.  For Natalya, working the club could be the break she's been waiting for.  But for Moretti, Natalya is a possible link to a killer.  Only he never counted on her being so lethally seductive or so dangerous to get close to.  As every forbidden pleasure between them is stripped away, his own secrets threaten their security, but its Natalya's that could destroy them both.
