Sharron McClellan and Jody Wallace--More Friends with Books Out

I've mentioned releases for both Sharron McClellan and Jody Wallace in an earlier post, but this time I have blurbs and fabulous covers to go with them. One can't pimp one's friends too often. Okay, you know what I mean.

First up is Breathless (Silhouette Romantic Suspense, February 2008), Sharron's latest. That cover is smokin'! And the story? Even better.

Athena Academy’s darkest nemesis is gunning for her, but USMC Combatant Diver Jessica Whittaker is not easily intimidated. Without thinking twice, she volunteers to do anything to help bring down the school’s deadliest enemy.
Her assignment: an expeditionary mission aboard a sunken ship. Salvaging for clues on an abandoned vessel should have been simple. But a hostile force—and an unbelievably handsome diving buddy—have turned up the heat. If Jess ever wants to set foot on dry land again she’ll have to contend with her enemy—and her lover—or risk revealing her deepest secret.

As Sharron's friend and crit partner, I've read this story, and let me tell you, I will NEVER think of a ship's engine room as some dank, mucky place again. Read the book to see what I mean ; )

Jody's A Spell for Susannah (Samhain Publishing) was released as an ebook yesterday and will be available in print later this year. Is that a gorgeous cover or is that a gorgeous cover? Susannah is a retelling if the "Twelve Dancing Princesses" fairy tale.

Princess Susannah's work with fairy magic unlocks a delicious secret:Beneath the castle where she and her sisters live, there's an enchanted palace full of princes who love to dance. In a world where the nobility are fairy-cursed to bear no male children, it's a secret she and her sisters enjoy to the fullest. When the King and Queen hire Jon Tom to find out where their daughters go every night, Susannah finds herself wanting to share all her secrets-and her heart. But if Susannah's secrets go public, the fairies are going to come looking for her. And they won't be happy.

Jody never disappoints when it comes to fun, fabulous reads. I think Susannah will breathe new life into the fantasy romance genre.

I can't tell you how great it is to have such talented friends to brag about. Now go buy their books so I can get my pimpage cut ; )

It's a pleasure to pimp for you ; )

Both covers are amazing. Those sacrifices to the cover artist gods must have worked.

I agree, those are some great covers! Isn't Jody Wallace the person with a cat blog of sorts? I remember stumbling across her site once upon a time and laughing myself silly over her dry wit. For that alone I will buy her book...and Sharron's too. I'm glad to help keep you in whatever it is you're going to buy with your pimpage cut. ;)

Hi, Meretta!

Yes, Jody's also the Typing Slave behind Mean Kitty ( or She never fails to crack me up.

Please go buy their books! For their sake, not mine. Really :)

Thanks, Cathy! I'm putting Sharron's in my A-basket. I have an ARC of mine so no need to buy one.

Now where are the ferrets?
