I’m excited to show off my cover for my debut novel, Touch Me Not. First, the semi-official blurb.
Touch Me Not:
In an alternate universe, where gender is less important than how dominant a person is, Jake Alric is the odd man out. While other subs spend their days trying to find their one true mate, Jake goes out of his way to avoid dominants. He’s seen the dark side of soul bonds, and all he wants is to be left alone to tend his small Montana cattle ranch in peace.
When an oil company starts buying up land all around town, Jake comes under increasing pressure to sell. A chance encounter brings him into contact with one of his potential mates, Henry Waterstone, son of the man trying to buy Jake’s ranch and a handsome dominant who pushes buttons Jake didn’t know he had. For the first time Jake is tempted by the true pleasure of being a submissive. But as Jake and Henry grow closer, a new player in the oil company rises up and threatens to sever their fragile connection. Suddenly the person Jake was most afraid to find becomes the one he’s most terrified to lose.
The color scheme and the silhouette of the oil pump really capture the book’s mood and theme. The characters are pretty close to what I imagined, too! Again, all love and cookies goes to the cover artist, April Martinez, and the talented folks at Loose Id.
Touch Me Not will be available from Loose Id 9/17.
