IMPULSE (Southern Arcana #5)
RELEASE DATE: Nov 2012
GENRE: Paranormal Romance
Sera Sinclaire is a New Orleans rarity: a submissive coyote trapped in a town overrun by dominant shapeshifters. Worse, she lacks the willpower to deny the alphas-in-shining-armor who need her soothing presence, even when their protectiveness threatens to crush her hard-won self-reliance. The only shifter she doesn’t want to push away is Julio Mendoza, a wolf so dominant he’s earned a place on the Southeast council.
Julio doesn’t have the luxury of indulging in the vacation his psychic shrink insists he needs. He can’t turn his back on responsibilities he’s beginning to wish he’d never shouldered. When an obsessive ex endangers Sera, though, instinct drives him to get her out of town. Watching her come to life outside the city makes him feel like he’s finally done something right, and her touch ignites desire he doesn’t want to ignore. But soon, light-hearted flirting becomes a dangerous game of seduction, where every day spent falling into each other is another day avoiding the truth. Sera’s ex isn’t the only one who’d disapprove of their relationship. There are wolves who would kill to get Sera out of Julio’s life–starting with his own blood kin.
I’m on the fence on this book cover. I like the wolf in the background, the funky pendant and earrings the girl is wearing, her black top and the font used for the author’s name. I think her hips look weird though, and she definitely looks a touch too skinny. I’m also not sure about the swirls over the river and the two contrasting colours used. I would still pick this one up, I just don’t love it.
I’m in agreement with Laura. I like this cover, although I don’t think it’s the best one in the series (that gong goes to Crux) but it does look part of the series. Take away the models head (those lips are just too collagen-icky for my liking) and the floating wolf head, this would be a lovely cover, as everything else works really well.
