My Top Ten Favorite Steamy Paranormal Book Covers

You know this was a fun list to make ;) To be clear, these aren’t necessarily my favorite heroes or even my favorite books (some I haven’t even read yet). Just covers that made me do a double-take and blush. Books that have somehow managed to be placed on the top of my book piles (not on purpose of course and definitely not so that I might steal quick and easy glimpses, as I pass my book piles).   

They made the list because, to me, they represent the book’s hero well. Okay fine… they made the list cause they’re yummy, and just because it’s my own fluffy list of  eye-candy that I can look at when I’m real grumpy, no matter where I am. Oh and… they are not in order of preference, as that changes depending on my “mood” (but #1 & #3 tie at first place)   

Night Embrace (Dark-Hunter, Book 3) (Talon’s book) by Sherrilyn Kenyon. This one is actually one of my favorites in the series, and the cover helped a bit  ;)  


Dark Side of the Moon by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Trust me, even if you can barely see him here, Ravyn’s hot hot hot! The mysterious, smoldering, angry sexy guy works well.   


Something Wicked (A Living in Eden Novel) by Michelle Rowen – I haven’t even read this one yet, but, come on! Look at that!  


Lover Avenged (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 7) by J.R. Ward. I wasn’t a big “Rehvenge” fan, but when I saw his book cover, I thought…hrmmm I can work with this. I was right! One of my favorite heroes. 

Gentlemen Prefer Succubi (Succubus Diaries) by Jill Myles. I gazed at this cover at Walmart a bit. A lot. This is supposed to be Noah. We all know I’m team Zane, but Noah has his appeal… 


Rapture Untamed (Feral Warriors) by Pamela Palmer. WHO is that sexy panther? Whoa! Another book I need to read ASAP!

A Highlander Christmas. Highlanders are paranormals too ya know. What with all the time travelling, deals with Fae, beserking and such… Very dreamy. Specially that one


Kresley Cole’s Dark Needs at Night’s Edge (Immortals After Dark, Book 4). Her book covers are gorgeous…but this one…Need I say more? 

What? That’s just eight?! Darn I did it again! Made a top ten list that didn’t quite get there. Good thing my TBR pile is huge and still growing and shows no sign of slowing down. Don’t worry, this list will see ten, and then some ;)    

Suggestions? Let me know. It’s such a hardship looking at all these sexy covers, but, I’ll take the time to check ‘em out. Tee hee!!

There’s too many to even begin to choose, but I have to say the one that stands out most in my memory is Anya Bast’s The Chosen Sin. I remember walking past it in the bookstore and doing a double take before reversing to get a better look. Another girl was already there ogling it and we shared a laugh about it. Not two minutes later another girl walking down the aisle did the same double take, slam on the brakes move and caused us to laugh all over again. It was a definite attention grabber.

I searched to find out who the model was on the BDB Lover Avenged, Rehvenges cover his HOT!!! Someone tell me they know who he is?

Funny! I just found out late last night, and then had a “Paul Marron” fest when I realized the majority of the covers on my “hottest covers” list featured him as the cover model. LOL!

Im going to have to search through my books to see what other covers hes on. He definitely helped me “picture” Rehvenge, enough to make me get over the whole barbed man bits thing…lol
