Surrender to Sultry Cover Reveal!

Howdy, romance readers! I’m Macy Beckett, author of the Sultry Springs trilogy, and I’m here to share the new-and-improved cover for the third book in my series, SURRENDER TO SULTRY. This is Colton’s story—the wild-as-weeds deputy you met in book two, where he starred in the bawdy reality show, Sex in the Sticks. Colt’s the county sheriff now, and he’s a changed man hoping for a second chance with his first love, Leah McMahon.

Here’s the original cover:

The design team had hoped vibrant fall colors would help the book stand out on the shelf. But between the battling hues of leaves, water, grass, and text, it’s overwhelming. And then there’s the couple. They look nothing like Colt (a long-haired Scots-Irish Cherokee) and Leah, (a petite blonde). It also doesn’t match the general look of the first two covers. So when the publisher asked the team to create something new, I was thrilled.

Which leads us to the final cover…

Isn’t that easier on the eyes, not to mention more consistent with the first two books? And check out that pair of lovers—they could really be Colton and Leah!

I think this is an improvement. What do you say?

Macy Beckett writes hot and humorous romance set in Sultry Springs, Texas: where first loves find second chances. Her debut novel, SULTRY WITH A TWIST, released in October, and book two, A SHOT OF SULTRY, is now available in stores and online. A third Sultry Springs novel will release in August. Additionally, Macy writes young adult science fiction under the name Melissa Landers. Her debut, ALIENATED, is coming in February, 2014 from Disney-Hyperion. You can learn more about her books—for adults and teens—on her website.

  2. Beautiful cover I never read your books before I am going to now they sound really good.
    Thanks for the review today

  3. I actually like the original cover as well, but I do think the second one fits in better with the rest of the other covers. Plus, it always bugs me when the people on the cover don't look like the characters!

  4. I like the new cover. It reminds me of something from Jill Shalvis’ Lucky Harbor series which I love.

  5. I really like the new cover.

  6. I loved the first two books in the Sultry series and I can't wait for the next. I'd read it with either cover, but I like the softer colors of the new cover.

  7. Thanks for the cover love, everyone! I hope you enjoy Colt's story.


  8. I definitely prefer the new one! I like summer over fall.

  9. I like that it is a brighter scene, more uplifting.

  10. I prefer the coloring of the second cover but the first cover is fine as well.

  11. I'm glad you got your cover change. I love the new one so much more! The first one seemed a little washed out. The new cover is vibrant & the couple on the cover look so happy to be together!

  12. I like both covers but I like the final cover a little better.
