Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews
Cerise Mar and her unruly clan are cash poor but land rich, claiming a large swathe of the Mire, the Edge swamplands between the state of Louisiana and the Weird. When her parents vanish, her clan’s long-time rivals are suspect number one.
But all is not as it seems. Two nations of the Weird are waging a cold war fought by feint and espionage, and their conflict is about to spill over into the Edge—and Cerise’s life. William, a changeling soldier who left behind the politics of the Weird, has been forced back into service to track down a rival nation’s spymaster.
When William’s and Cerise’s missions lead them to cross paths, sparks fly—but they’ll have to work together if they want to succeed … and survive.
Like we decided a few weeks ago we will now choose our favorite covers in a genre for the next few editions of “The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me?” and tell you why we chose them. It would be awesome if you could tell us which cover in this genre is your favorite and perhaps we will all find some new to us cover candies we can obsess about.
This week we chose Contemporary Erotica covers for our fight … ahem .. discussion. This week we discovered something: we seem to read not nearly enough books in this genre. The only covers we could come up with were the one below and Susi had to work really hard to NOT only choose Megan Hart covers. But we have to say these ladies just write sooooo fantastic books …
