Top Off Tuesday - Nice, don't you think?

I've decided to join Felicia, Christi and Amanda for their gratuitous shirtless covers on Tuesdays. Because nothing says Tuesday like flashing some skin! Hop over to Felicia's blog to see who else is participating!

I hesitated over including this as a top Off Tuesday cover because the lady is so front and center here. But BUT... I really like his abs. So, there you go.

The Governess and the Beast (Blind Cupid #2) by Karyn Gerrard
Hiding secrets and a past she longs to forget, Hortense Jennings answers an ad for a governess and embarks on an adventure she did not expect.

Concealed in a gothic, crumbling manor on the edge of a North Sea cliff, Baron Simon Wolstenholme is hiding from life. Horribly scarred from battle wounds, he lives up to his name “The Beast of Stonecliff” in both appearance and attitude until he realizes how lonely he has become.

Simon propositions Hortense for a singular night of passion. Raging weather and storms of anger clash between a lonely man and a distrustful woman to reveal secret desires in an emotional crescendo. Can the Governess and the Beast find calm amid the storm and admit their true feelings, or will pride destroy the fairy tale before it begins?


  1. He does have nice abs.

    Wait. And her name is HORTENSE?

    1. *nods* Her name is Hortense. Not going to lie, I'd read this book. TOTALLY.

  2. *cackles* Hortense.
    And just where is his hand? It looks like it's on his junk. Is he a creeper, standing nekkid behind Hortense playing with his twig and berries?

  3. Hortense! I don't even think ANYTHING could top that. Oh wait, his abs!
