Shelf Candy Saturday #3

Welcome to Shelf Candy Saturday, a Saturday meme, hosted by Five Alarm Book Reviews.

This is where I feature a favorite cover and its artist, which does not have to come from a new release or something that I received in my mailbox.  Any cover that I discover and love will fit the bill.  

My pick this week is Dark Kiss (Nightwatchers #1) by Michelle Rowen.


I don't do DANGEROUS. 

Smart, über-careful, ordinary Samantha—that’s me. But I just couldn’t pass up a surprise kiss from my number-one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me...something strange. Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It’s like part of me is missing—and I don’t know if I can get it back. 

Then there’s Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he’s keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he’s what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me. But something terrifying is closing in, and the one chance Bishop and I have to stop it means losing everything I ever wanted and embracing the darkness inside me.... 

Nightwatchers: When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...


Actually I thought of picking this cover for Shelf Candy Saturday today.  See the similarities?

Black wings, a sexy man..yeah, but then I saw a fellow blogger saying that Dark Kiss is available in NetGalley and then what? I thought it is sort of cool cover, so here it is.  Its released on May 22nd by Harlequin.  I requested it first thing after seeing the cover.  And waiting now! :)

So, what do you think of the cover?


  1. ooooh...the cover is amazing and the synopsis has me intrigued..thanks for sharing this one!

  2. That cover is gorgeous! I love the whole fallen angel angle in books and that sounds like a great read. It does seem similar to Hush, Hush (which is another gorgeous cover!)

    My shelf candy is here if you'd like a look :)

  3. I love it. I really like the color scheme and the font; it's got a sense of mystery as well. Nice pick.

    Here is my pick:

    Happy Reading!

  4. Great pick! Those wings are sinister!! Consider me intrigued...

  5. I love the dark feel along with the lighter feel of the feathery wings. This is a great Shelf Candy pick. Thank you for sharing it and for including the synopsis. I do see the similarity to Hush Hush, however, I like the cover for Dark Kiss more.

  6. Awesome pic! I feel like Dark Kiss cover screams at me to read it. It's gorgeous. I can't wait to get my hands on this book!

    Thanks so much for sharing! And I totally picked Hush Hush as my Shelf Candy one week too! It's irresistible.

  11. Hi, there!

    I'm your newest follower! Oh, my gosh!!! What a BEAUTIFUL cover!!! I LOVE everything about it -- the guy is a total HUNK (in fact, he resembles Robert Pattinson!!), the black wings are totally awesome, and the background is light blue!! If you've ever visited my blog, you know that my favorite color is blue. So, any book with blue in its cover will automatially catch my eye!! Lol. CONGRATS on picking such a terrific cover!!

    BTW, although I'm not a big fan of pink, your blog has my favorite shade of that color -- HOT pink!! So I want to tell you that this is one of the things that attracted me to your blog! I also think that you have GREAT content!!

    Have a GREAT weekend!! : )
