Cover Reveal, Call Of The Sea by Rebecca Hart

From the cover of the book:

There is no denying the call of the sea.

Elysandra Winters has always yearned for a life of adventure on the rolling seas and is willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill her dream. When her Privateer father continually refuses to allow his only daughter to sail, Ellie defies him, disguises herself as a boy, and goes in search of a captain who will give her a chance to prove her worth.

Thanks to the cursed selkie blood coursing through his veins, Daniel O’Rourke needs the sea to survive. After giving up on his humanity and spending three years in seal form, he decides to give his human side another chance. Daniel goes in search of a job and a sense of normalcy, earning himself a position aboard Captain Winter’s ship, The Surf Runner. However, his new captain’s first assignment has nothing at all to do with sailing, and everything to do with his headstrong young daughter.

Years later, when the leader of a band of bloodthirsty pirates murders Captain Winters, Daniel and Elysandra’s lives come crashing back together with the force of a hurricane. Both experts in deception, they must find a way to trust each other if they are to have any hope of hunting down the captain’s killer.

When it comes to covers, I get all weak-kneed - especially if the cover is as gorgeous as this one. 

A wonderful storyline, a beautiful cover... I LOVE it, and I'm really looking forward to read it.

Rebecca Hart's Call Of The Sea will be published by Inkspell Publishing. Release date. June 2012.  

What do you think of the cover? Would love your thoughts about it. 

I have been Book Tagged

I've been Tagged by the wonderful Martina @

Here is how it works: 
The Rules:

1. You must post the rules.

2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create ten new questions to ask the people that you have tagged.

3. Tag ten people and link to them on your post.

4. Let them know you’ve tagged them!
(since most people have already been tagged, I'm not sure I'll get ten)

Here are the answers to the ten questions she asked.

1. Which is your favorite book/ book series?

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Ms Moning's Fever Series, Ms Clare's Mortal Instruments, Ms Singhs Psy-Changeling Series, Twilight Series.. (yes.. I enjoyed that series)

2. How often do you read? 

Everyday, would read every second of the day if that was possible *sigh*

3. Who’s your favorite characters and why?

I just finished reading Tiger's Curse and Dhiren is my new favourite character. Not only is he breath-taking beautiful (and a cursed tiger who is also protective), he is considerate, funny, oh-so dreamy...hahaha - I can't seem to think of any negative side of him. Probably it's because my mind is still on Ren fever. Will have to answer this question a bit later once the effect wears off.

4. What’s your favorite subject you like to read about?

 I enjoy reading romance, whether it's paranormal, UF, dark... in whichever form.

I've had my blog for 5 months now.

7. Which book you like has in your opinion the best film adaption?

   Mmmh, I enjoyed Lord of The Rings. Oh, and The Notebook. 

8. What’s your favorite quote of a book?

Fever series has alot of them. I'll choose one:

“Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best, and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who just bring out the most. Of everything. They make you feel so alive that you'd follow them straight into hell, just to keep getting your fix.”
Karen Marie Moning, Shadowfever

Oh, this one was nice too. I can't help it.

“V'lane: Are you busy tomorrow MacKayla ?
Barrons: She's working on old texts with me.
V'lane: Ah. Old texts. A banner day at the bookstore.
Barrons: We're translating Kama Sutra...with interactive aids.”
Karen Marie Moning, Shadowfever

9. If you could life in the universe of a book, which would it be?

Gosh, there are a couple I'd love to live in. but I'll have to choose one. The one that comes in my at this moment is Nalini Singh's Psy-changeling universe. Yep.  With all those gorgeous, intense shifters running around.
