A Bear and his Cover

Every once in a while, publishers tell authors what’s going on.

Things like shifting publishing dates, changing word count expectations, and radically changed deadlines.

But not usually.

So I wasn’t really surprised when I was bopping around B&N the other day and I ran into the cover for Kodiak Chained (December release), even though I’d never seen it before, had no idea it was out, and would have gladly shared my glee over it had I known.

On the other hand, that’s the kind of surprise I don’t mind getting.  Because, look!  It’s Ruger!  And look!  Isn’t his bear self just awesome? (I think his human self pretty much stands without comment.  Maybe a moment of appreciative silence?)

It’s interesting to see what they did with the blurb, too…it’s like being on the outside of the book looking in…

Kodiak ChainedOne mission. One night. One costly misstep….

Don’t miss this scintillating romance from Doranna Durgin! [note:  that’s me!  Scintillating!  wow!]

A mighty Kodiak shifter, Ruger is more than a Sentinel warrior. As a Healer, he willingly risks everything defending the sick and helpless. But after an ambush nearly kills him, he can do only so much-until a sensual lady black bear shifter arrives to provide him backup….

In human form, she is called Mariska. Feisty and self-assured, she has finagled her present assignment helping Ruger chase down a rising new threat. The moment Mariska scents the heroic, battle-scarred grizzly she knows he will be her only weakness…and greatest desire.

Mariska will do anything to aid Ruger-even if confronting the enemy puts everything she holds dear in jeopardy.

Ahhh, impending book release!  Can’t wait!

I hope you’ve had some good surprises lately, too!

    That would be pretty awesome. 8)

    Definitely a moment or two of appreciative silence. (There may be some appreciative humming and ‘yum’ sounds too.)

    Oh, my heavens. Now I know what I need to save up my nickels and dimes for. Doranna, I’m unemployed and have not bought a book in well over a year — libraries and free Kindles titles are my friend.

    But for this, I’ll find the money. Of course, it will probably lead to all kinds of wretched excess, since I confess I don’t own ANY of your titles yet….

    Ruth, the appreciative humming is especially appropriate for a bear. 8)

    Jennifer, we’re all for wretched reading excess here. But goodness, yes–I’m glad you have those libraries and the Kindle free titles! I do most of my e-shopping with backlist titles–that helps, too.
