A Hard Man Is Good To Find!



“I had to be careful where I read it as there was always the possibility of me laughing out loud. . . no exaggeration. There was a huge grin on my face constantly with occasional erruptions of giggles. The story line was tight, true to life, engaging, unique, very entertaining, and may I also add sexy and romanitic as well…” – First Amazon Review from “Satisfied Customer”

Read an Excerpt!


MICHELLE LARSEN has found a man straight out of a romance novel–handsome, fit, educated, and pulling in a six-figure income. Despite the exceptional qualities and his obvious interest in her, things are moving too slow between them. Unlike most men who can’t wait to get in her pants, this particular man refuses to take things to the next level.

DARYL JACKSON has grown tired of the nightclub scene and wants to settle down, but he has a secret that always seems to interrupt any potential love connection once he reveals it. He believes Michelle is the ideal woman, but can she handle the truth?

After six weeks of dating, and still no attempt from him to get her “horizontal,” Michelle grows sex-starved. She is driving herself crazy trying to figure out Daryl’s problem! During a weekend getaway in Palm Springs, Michelle finally puts an end to the what’s-wrong-with-Daryl guessing game and demands to know what’s up. Not only does Daryl answer all her questions, Michelle learns firsthand that you really need to be careful with what you wish for!

For me, it was a toss up between cover 1 & 2. But I think the flow on cover 2 is more balanced. Much success.

I like both 1 and 2, I like cover number 1 because of the scenic view in the back ground on the right. I like 2 because of the explanation and question on the upper left corner of the book. I don’t like 3 because it takes it down a notch to trashy. G

very sexy stuff

I chose #3 because the title block doesn’t detract from the picture. Also it shows the man’s face.

I like cover 2 but the text is still hard to read.

My suggestion would be to have a cover with three areas.
top area – same color as text area in cover 1 with the text “A Hard Man”
Middle – picture
Lower – same color as top area… or slight variation. With text “Is Good to Find” and author name at the bottom…

I like #3 because of the layout – but I wouild recommend using the type/colors as used in #1. This combination would be more effective (make easier to read). Good luck.

I like number two cause it lets you see more of what she is smiling about.

You know I am going to get it

Luv ya

I like #2 but agree with Mike O’Shea about the font colors. The text in the background is too light in my opinion.
Luv you much, mom

You should use cover one, but bring the dividing line down… make the title print a bit smaller (it’s still easier to read not against the photo backdrop). Splitting the cover at 2/3 point is more interesting visually than in the middle. And you can use a bit more of the top photo like in #2 without sacrificing your title visually and you can probably still fit in the call out. The picture used in #3 takes it too far into trashy.

Choose #1! u do not want to cover the man’s body w/ huge font. i’m lovin’ the title, photo, title….did i say title before? lol i can’t wait to read it! i will check out the submission guidelines, because i’m looking for a good publisher! chao!
