Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers. Lusting For Covers is hosted by TBQ's Book Palace.

Here's what you do:

1- Take the graphic image above and include in your post. Remember to give credit to the original host (TBQ).

2- Choose your own book cover that you've fallen in "lust" with in the past week. It can be new, old, a reprint, or even a book that is not yet out-- it's all up to you! If you find a cover that catches your eye, then showcase it on your blog, and let others see the pretty covers out there.

3- Copy the direct link to your own L4C post into the Mr. Linky widget at the bottom of TBQ'S post over on her blog. This will allow other peeps to come check  out and see what you've picked. 

4- (OPTIONAL): Besides posting the picture of the book cover you chose, it's nice to provide the book summary, title, author, or a website link for the book. It's not required, but it can help you readers' to add more books to their own list! A brief "Why I choose this cover" is also appreciated, but not required.

**Also ~ If you wish to post your links or talk about L4C on Twitter, please use the tag #LustingForCovers so that we can easily find all tweets about it. :)

My Lusting For Covers Pick:

I picked Shayla Black's highly aanticipated (at least in my world, lol) upcoming release in her Wicked Lovers Series.

I have been waiting for Mine To Hold for what seems like FOREVER...alas, I am such an inpatient little book HOOR. Her books should come with warning labels--CAUTION ~ What you are about to read is very hot and  smexy...please have battery operated devices at the ready, lol. 

I have loved all of these books (Wicked Lovers), but hold a special fondness for Decadent, Wicked Lovers, Book 2.  Deke Trenton is one Alpha male that still makes me weak at the knees.

Shayla is a pro at capturing the emotional impact as well as sizzling chemistry that sizzles on almost every page.

Tyler Murphy was an LAPD detective, single and happy—until a near-fatal tragedy crippled his friend, fellow detective Eric Catalano. While he supported Eric, he also became a shoulder for Eric’s wife, Delaney, to cry on. But with one naughty suggestion from Eric, a drunken night with Delaney spilled into erotic abandon. Before it was over Tyler saw his best friend’s wife as a woman and yearned for more. When Eric struggled to deal with the aftermath, Delaney begged Tyler to leave. Crushed, he fled to Louisiana, hoping to escape his longing for the one woman he could never have again…and unaware of what he’d left behind.

A lover’s desire.

After two years of living with regret, Tyler finds Delaney on his doorstep, her husband having abandoned her long ago. She’s protecting a shocking secret and desperately needs refuge from a killer determined to see her dead. As they fight to stay alive and catch the stalker, they struggle to resolve the guilt of their past pleasures. But they can’t deny that what was once a spark is now a flame burning out of control. To possess Delaney — body and soul — Tyler must heal her pain and thwart the evil that’s a mere breath behind her…
