I’ve been doing some cover tweaking. One of them is Starheart. Somebody said the current cover shown at left, with two lovers, looks a bit too much like a standard romance cover. And that’s not what Starheart is. As one reviewer said, it’s “A fun action/adventure, a murder mystery, a crime novel and a romance all in one.”
Here’s the blurb;
She’s lost her husband, her best friend is missing. What else has she got to lose?
Slightly shady freighter captain, Jess Sondijk, thought she had her life under control until Admiral Hudson’s Confederacy battle cruiser stops her ship to search for contraband. His questions reopen matters she had thought resolved. What if her husband’s death on his way back from Tabora wasn’t accidental? Jess decides to investigate, while keeping Hudson at arms’ length.
While he’s attracted to the lovely Jess, Hudson is also concerned about what might be happening on Tabora and how that may involve the Confederacy’s enemies.
Jess and Hudson’s interests collide in more ways than one. But while Jess is more than willing to put her life on the line to protect what’s hers, Hudson must balance the risk of inter-species war at worst and the end of his career at best, in a deadly game of political intrigue, murder and greed. At the end of the day, how much is he willing to lose for the woman he has come to love?
Like Morgan’s Choice, the romance is the icing on the cake, not the raison d’etre. So, what do you think?
The original or this one?
