Book covers that capture the essence of the story-Covergasm #giveaway #asmsg

Welcome to the Covergasm event hosted by The Herd Hops. This blog hop runs 6 - 13 June. We are sharing our favorite book covers and giving away prizes.

Picking favorite book covers was tough for me as I love all amy books. In the end I went for selecting covers based where the cover artist captured the essence of the story in the cover and this is what I came up with.



Historical Romance
Cover artist: Mina Carter

This cover capture the conflict and tension between Prince Emeka and the slave girl, Ezinne beautifully.

Blurb:
With the weight of a kingdom on his shoulders and his honor at stake, can a Prince truly love a slave?

Ezinne is dismayed when her mistress presents her to Prince Emeka as a concubine to cater for his every need for a few weeks. She’s a slave whose previous encounters with men make her fear their brutality.
Yet the more she gets to know the powerful yet honorable prince, the easier he breaks down the walls around her heart. She soon comes to want him more than she wants anything else, even freedom.
But Emeka is the heir to the throne and Ezinne is a woman with secrets that threaten not just their budding relationship but a kingdom.


***
Erotic Romance
Cover artist: Sour Cherry Designs

One of the keywords for this book is acceptance--Selina accepting her place in Benjamin's life and this cover captures it sensually.


Blurb:
Her body is his to command, her heart his to win.
Selina Moss bared her body to her husband and allowed him to see her and touch her like no one else has ever done. When a member of the family visits, she realizes there is still so much about her husband she doesn't know.
Benjamin's remorse about his family history drives his actions. Selina is his present and he'll do whatever it takes to protect her from being contaminated by his past, including revealing the shame that burns his soul.
But for Selina, finding out about Benjamin's past means investing emotionally in a man who's only going to walk away once their temporary arrangement comes to an end. Is she ready to bare her heart to him along with the secrets of their past?


***
Contemporary Romance
Cover artist: Love Bites and Silk 

The pose of the models is just Felix and Ebony--a man trying to understand what's going and a woman who seems to have the answers he needs.

Blurb:
Have you ever loved someone and didn’t even know it?
That’s the dilemma facing Felix Essien when he wakes from a coma to find he is married to the most beautiful and sensual woman he’s ever known. He cannot remember her or their wedding; he who had sworn never to get married or to give his heart to another. Yet, he feels an intense bond with her that he intends to explore fully.
Ebony can’t believe her good fortune when her paper husband wakes not remembering the temporary marriage arrangement with no intimacies he’d proposed, and is now the adoring husband she’s always dreamt of.
She plans to make the most of the passion blossoming between them. However, would he still feel that way when he regains his memory and realises she’s been keeping secrets and their marriage is not what he thinks it is?
