Scoundrel's Kiss Cover Copy

This morning, I received my back cover copy for SCOUNDREL'S KISS, which hits the shelves in January. I'd ask you to play count the romance cliches, but that might seem like I was making fun of it. I'm not. However, parts of it do make me snort. I think we romance writers use up all the ellipses that other genres shun. As for the cover image, we'll have to wait another few months.

Back Cover:

WHEN IT COMES TO TEMPTATION...
Turning his back on his old life as a rogue, Gavriel de Marqueda has joined a monastic order in Spain and taken a vow of chastity. Before he becomes a monk, he must pass one final test: help a woman who has lost her way. But when he lays eyes on Ada of Keyworth, he is tempted beyond measure by her sultry beauty and dangerous curves...

RULES ARE MEANT TO BE BROKEN...
Far from her home in England, Ada has been battling inner demons for more than a year. When she discovers that her only friend has abandoned her, she has no choice but to grudgingly accept Gavriel's help. But Ada is not fooled. Though Gavriel wears the robes of a monk, Ada sees that he is a virile man who looks at her with a hunger that matches her own--one that begs to be satisfied again and again...

"Readers will delight in this inventive foray into a legendary place."
--Susan Wiggs, New York Times Bestselling Author on What a Scoundrel Wants
