BDSM COVER FOR BDSM BOOK


Hoo-eeee, am I excited! Look at this brand-new cover that Ellora's Cave's artists just sent me for WHAT SHE NEEDS! This novella was released a few years ago with, okay, I'll admit, a so-so cover. The female model happens to be me, and it was a real kick for me to pose with the late, sorely missed Angelo, but it didn't truly convey the feel of the book.

New Cover!
This new cover kicks ass!

Here are some reviews WHAT SHE NEEDS garnered when it was first released.

Happily Ever After Reviews
5 Tea Cups and Recommended Read
“It packs a powerful punch. The sex scenes are sizzling hot, and offer a variety of BDSM, Ménage, and tender lovin’ scenes. The main characters are brilliant and the chemistry between Delia and Kurt sizzles from the beginning…I couldn’t put it down.”

Fallen Angel Reviews
5 Angels and Recommended Read
“The chemistry between this pair is off the charts, and the maturity they display when facing obstacles is admirable. I will admit to being brought to tears when these two had to come to grips with their pasts.”

Black Raven’s Reviews
5 Angels and Recommended Read
“My heart caught in my throat several times as I watched their relationship grow from a casual meeting at a bar to Kurt’s home and a hotter than hell ménage and finally into a relationship that most would envy.”

Romance Junkies Reviews
5 Blue Ribbons, Recommended Read
“Cris Anson really impressed me with WHAT SHE NEEDS. This is one of those stories that gets your heart racing and other body parts tingling – and that’s just the physical reaction…a truly beautiful story with just the right amount of heat, light hearted fun, and emotional angst to deserve a place of honor on your e-reading bookshelf.”

In case you missed it the first time around, here's the blurb for WHAT SHE NEEDS:

Older widow Delia Barnes is sporting a black eye when she greets fellow authors before an erotic romance convention, which she explains away by joking “I didn’t say ‘Yes Master’ quick enough.” Sitting at the bar, burned-out ad executive and former Dom Kurt Reinhardt overhears the remark—and interrupts to suggest maybe she needs “a new Master”.



Urged by her friends to accept the younger man’s invitation to learn some D/s basics—hey, an author needs to do her research, right?—Delia joins him to get first-hand experience at being submissive, starting with removing her panties in a corner booth. Later, she learns more than she bargained for when she spends a weekend at Kurt’s home…with his eager business partner added to the mix.



But an innocent misstep brings Delia’s world crashing down around her. Can she trust Kurt with her heart…and her life?

Now really, doesn’t the new cover convey Delia’s excitement at getting this up-close-and-personal training?

Old Cover
If you haven’t read it yet, I hope you’ll give WHAT SHE NEEDS a try. Ellora’s Cave already has the new cover up. You can buy it here.         

Or you can find it at other online bookstores (possibly with the old cover - it takes a few weeks for them to change things -  but it’s still the same great story):  Amazon    Barnes & Noble     All Romance eBooks 

Happy New Year to all!
