This is my first official contemporary (non-yaoified) romance, which is why I opted for a different style of cover for The Librarian’s Rake. I worked with a cover artist who gave me numerous choices but none captured the library pre-sex scene I wanted on the cover.
But this cover inspired me to add a scene which had been off page before I saw it. It’s a pivotal scene for one of the characters, and it melts me every time I see it. (I can’t wait to share it with you in the future!)
Many hugs, Z.
