If you have been following me on twitter or reading this blog for any length of time you will know that I adore Kit Rocha's Beyond series. I tried it out the series hesitantly and read the first book, Beyond Shame, almost out of the corner of my eye because it was all a bit too much: The O'kanes, rough and tumble bootleggers, extend their protection to a a young woman expelled from the repressive and hypocritical theocratic city next door who is trying to figure out what she wants for the first time in her life.
Beyond Shame left me curious and intrigued about where they were going with this story beyond hedonism, but after I read and loved Beyond Control I was sold. Because in Beyond Control I realized that beyond the sexiness and fascinating dynamics of Dallas and Lex's relationship all the politics and worldbuilding were going to matter because Rocha was going somewhere with it, and I wanted to be along for the ride. With each book their world expanded and the so did they story they were telling.
And it was an awesome ride, so when Bree (who writes with Donna Herren as Kit Rocha and Moira Rogers) asked if I was willing to host a cover reveal for their rebranding, I jumped on it. I don't usually do promo posts but I hope more new readers take the opportunity to try them and get to know and love the Beyond world like I do. I hope you enjoy reading a bit about Bree's process for putting together all these new covers and if you are interested in seeing them all check out the central post they will be updating with links to all the other covers reveals: Beyond Rebranding Cover Reveals
BREE’S COVER NOTES:
When I sat down to redesign the cover of Beyond Temptation, there was one thing I knew Emma was going to need—tattoos. Awesome tattoos. All of the O’Kane women have ink to a greater or lesser degree, but Emma is Ace’s apprentice and a tattoo artist in her own right. Finding a model with bright, vivid, colorful ink was fated!
The background of the cover is one of the more artistic ones of the new series, in that instead of an object, it’s an idea. Or rather, it’s code—a nod to Noah, who has hacked his way through Eden and the sectors to keep her safe and would do it again. And again and again.
(Just don’t zoom in and try to read it. It’s…not good code. LOL)
Hacker Noah Lennox lives in the shadows, fighting a one-man war against the corrupt leader of Sector Five. The only weak spot in his armor is his best friend’s sweet younger sister--the girl he swore to save, even from himself. With her brother dead and a target on their backs, getting her out of the sector--and out of danger--meant giving her up for good.
Or so he thought.
Emma Cibulski has made her own home in Sector Four, as a full member of the O’Kane gang and apprentice to their infamous tattoo artist. When Noah--the first man she ever loved--stumbles back into her life, it’s her chance to have it all. The spark between them burns hotter than ever, and this time her fantasies are far from innocent.
But can they handle the heat...or will Noah’s dark secrets drive them apart forever?
