THE RED HAND CONSPIRACY -- Vonnie Davis

Book one of The Red Hand Conspiracy, MONA LISA'S ROOM, releases on Friday. As with most books, it's been a long time coming, and my excitement has been building exponentially.
BLURB:

Gwen,
 

You won't believe this email. I'm sitting in a French safe house, eating caviar and drinking champagne with a handsome government agent, Niko Reynard. He's wearing nothing but silk pajama bottoms and mega doses of sex appeal. I'm in big trouble, little sister. He's kissed me several times and given me a foot massage that nearly caused spontaneous combustion. I'm feeling strangely virginal compared to the sexual prowess this thirty-year-old man exudes.
 

When I came to Paris for a bit of adventure, I never imagined I'd foil a bombing attempt, karate-kick two men, and run from terrorists while wearing a new pair of stilettos. I've met a German musician, a gay poet from Australia, and the most delightful older French woman.
 

Don't worry. I'm safe--the jury's still out on yummy Niko, though. The more champagne I drink, the less reserved I feel. What an unforgettable fortieth birthday!
 

Alyson
 
 

Today, I received the cover art for book two in the series, RAIN IS A LOVE SONG. I'm so tickled with it, I have to share. Rae Monet gave me exactly what I asked for. She's the greatest.

BLURB:

What should be a wonderful trip to Paris turns menacing when Gwen Morningstar’s daughter is kidnapped by The Red Hand terrorist group. Fortunately, Jean-Luc LeFevre of France’s Counterterrorism Unit is there to rescue her little girl. Gwen is grateful, but her need to apprehend the abductors must override any desire she feels for the handsome agent with his own brand of justice…and danger.
 

Jean-Luc is not pleased when Gwen, a crime scene photographer with just enough training to get them killed, is assigned to work with him. Not only does she take too many risks, she drives him to distraction.
 

As Gwen and Jean-Luc track the terrorists, their feelings for each other grow as fast as the danger. Jean-Luc is determined to protect Gwen and her daughter, but the sinister grasp of The Red Hand is strong and far-reaching. It will take more than love to keep them all safe.

Wow - what a fantastic follow up to Mona Lisa's Room. Both amazing covers. How exciting, Vonnie!

LisaRayns said...

This is the first I've seen of the second one. I love them both!

Vonnie Davis said...

Thanks, Susan. Rae Monet always delivers. I'm thrilled.

Vonnie Davis said...

Oh, Melissa, you have no idea how I stressed over the cover for Rain. Yet it came in better than I'd hoped.

Calisa Rhose said...

Duly oohing and aahing as you read this, Vonnie! Rae did a beautiful job. The pooled blood is perfect.

Vonnie Davis said...

Thanks, Lisa. Sure wish my old knees could handle those shoes. By golly, I'd have a pair. LOL

Vonnie Davis said...

Isn't the blood a great element, Calisa? I just love it.

christine warner said...

Congrats Vonnie....you have 2 beautiful covers. Love them!!!

Vonnie Davis said...

Thanks for stopping by, Christine. I love them, too.

LaVerne Clark said...

Doing a big, WOOOHOOOO!!! for you Vonnine! How awesome are they together?!? Rae is an incredible artist! Congratulations, I'm so thrilled for you :)

LaVerne Clark said...

Oh, dear. Forgive the fumble fingers when typing your name, Vonnie ;)

Vonnie Davis said...

Oh, LaVerne, I have always hated the name Vonnie. Actually, I think I like Vonnine better. LOL Thanks for commenting, hon.

Rolynn Anderson said...

Hey Vonnie!
Love the cover of #2 in the Red Hand series. Can't wait to read about Aly's next adventures. Congrats! Rolynn

Vonnie Davis said...

Thanks Rolynn. Book two has Gwen and Jean-Luc's romance, but Alyson and Niko are in all three stories to some degree. I'm writing book three now, leaving more clues as to the leader of The Red Hand and bringing down the terrorist organization.

Kathryn Knight said...

Love the two similar covers - Rae Monet just finished my cover for my second book and I'm unveiling soon - she's so talented!

Sara Walter Ellwood / Cera duBois said...

Love both covers, Vonnie!!

Paisley Kirkpatrick said...

Vonnie, these are great covers. I like making them similar like you have. Good luck, my friend. I hope you have lots of sales.

Angela Adams said...

Great looking covers! Good luck!!!

Vonnie Davis said...

I love Rae's work, Kathryn. Can't wait to see your cover.

Vonnie Davis said...

Thanks Sara, I love them, too.

Vonnie Davis said...

Hugs Paisley. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I think the similar theme unifies the series.

Vonnie Davis said...

Angela, thanks for coming to Vintage Vonnie to take a peek. ;-)

Misty Dietz said...

Love the covers, Vonnie! Excited for you! :)

Vonnie Davis said...

Thanks, Misty. I've been blessed with awesome covers at TWRP.

Edith said...

Absolutely LOVE the new cover! Very enticing.....

Maggie Toussaint said...

Vonnie,

Your covers are very eyecatching. They make me want to read Both Books! Well done!

Vonnie Davis said...

Thanks, Edith. I'm very excited. Graphic artists at The Wild Rose Press put out the best book covers. I've been very lucky.

Vonnie Davis said...

Well, Maggie, you'll have to wait a while to read RAIN IS A LOVE SONG. I don't have the release date for it yet. But, hey, Mona's available!!!

Ilona Fridl said...

Hi, Vonnie,
I've always requested Rae for my book covers. She designed my web site as well. I love her work! Your books sound good from the blurbs. Best of luck with them!

Vonnie Davis said...

Hugs Llona. Thanks for your kind remarks. Tomorrow is the big release for Mona. Can't wait.

Tiffany N. York said...

They look great together, Vonnie. Can't wait to see the third one.

Vonnie Davis said...

Thanks, Tiffany. I'd love to see the cover for the third book, too. I'm still writing it and must admit it's been a struggle. My heroine won't cooperate with my timeline. I've gone back to the beginning of JAZZBEAT OF SURRENDER and rewritten the whole mess...AGAIN!! Signed...one frustrated writer. LOL
