Usually on Tuesdays I have a Hot-Hot Hottie for you, today I decided to do something different and join Felicia from The Geeky Book Blogger's Book Blog, Amanda from On a Book Bender, and Christi from Smitten with Reading in a feature they host every Tuesday, Top Off Tuesdays.
The idea is to share the cover of a book with a "Top Off" that caught my attention, it doesn't matter if it's an old, recently release or not yet release book. It also doesn't matter if it's a very hot cover or one that made me roll my eyes, it just has to be a Top Off cover.
The cover I have for you today is the cover of Cold Iron by D.L. McDermott. I decided to share this cover because I really like it. Actually, I read the book because the cover caught my attention. I know the sword is covering part of the chest, but I think it gives it a stronger appeal. What do you think?
The Fae, the Good Neighbors, the Fair Folk, the Aes Sídhe, creatures of preternatural beauty and seduction. Archaeologist Beth Carter doesn’t believe in them. She’s always credited her extraordinary ability to identify ancient Celtic sites to hard work and intuition—until she discovers a tomb filled with ancient treasure but missing a body. Her ex-husband, the scholar who stifled her career to advance his own, is unconcerned. Corpses don’t fetch much on the antiquities market. Gold does. Beth knows from past experience that if she isn’t vigilant, Frank will make off with the hoard.
So when a man—tall, broad shouldered, and impossibly handsome—turns up in her bedroom claiming to be the tomb’s inhabitant, one of mythic god-kings of old Ireland, Beth believes it is a ploy cooked up by her ex-husband to scare her away from the excavation.
But Conn is all too real. Ancient, alien, irresistible, the Fae are the stuff of dreams and nightmares, their attentions so addictive their abandoned human lovers wither and die. And this one has fixed his supernatural desire on Beth.
