Season Two Cover Direction Winners

Thanks for participating in our first ever cover voting-bonanza. Our designers worked very hard to give you so many different choices for each of our season two titles. Here are the cover directions you thought were most swoonworthy! Thanks for telling us what makes you swoon.

What comes next? Now that we know what direction we’d like to take, our art department is hard at work tweaking these covers to make them the very best they can be. Stay tuned to see how they turn out!

First you picked the cover for VELVET, the novel by Temple West about love between a teenage girl and her vampire bodyguard.

Rich and KB's Caitlin in the Snow Cover

After losing both her parents before age 17, aspiring designer Caitlin Holte doesn’t feel like moving, starting a new school, staying with her estranged aunt, or…living at all really. But after a terrifying encounter with a supernatural force, she learns that the world is a lot more complicated than she thought. Also, her hot bad-boy neighbor, Adrian (who might have just saved her life) is actually a half-demon vampire.

Suddenly Caitlin is stuck with a vampire bodyguard determined to protect her. And Adrian has decided the best way to do that is for the two of them to pretend to be dating. Trouble is, Caitlin is starting to fall in love for real, while Adrian can never love a human. And then there’s the supernatural threat that flung them together in the first place—Adrian’s demonic dad!
