About the front:
I have a major affinity for the color teal. You can see it in my logo, my website and my blog. It’s a beautiful color that goes well with my other favorite color … raspberry. Yup … I love teal and this book cover pulled me right in because of that. The pinkish of the title and her wings only adds to the flavor. So there you have it, this one caught my eye because of the color. Studying it a little more, I really, really like it. There’s an ethereal quality to it. her wings are semi-translucent. The swirls around the title and the author name fit with the rest of the feel. There’s a definite paranormal feel to this. The ONE weird thing is that I can’t tell what she’s doing with her dress. At first I thought she was kicking up her leg — but I don’t think that’s the case. Now it just looks like her dress is coming up and I can’t figure out why it should … or would. This is so minor, but so weird, it has me wanting to find out.

Now let’s look at what the back says:

The object of every man’s fantasy just lost her wings…

Kaia Verde is one of the four Faerie Handmaids of Zafira, Queen of the Fey. To redress an ancient wrong done to Zafira by a human king, the Handmaids make sport of mortal men, seducing and humiliating them. When Kaia sets out to seduce Garrett Jameson, but ends up being the one surrendering to pleasure, Zafira is furious. Kaia’s punishment is simple: make Garrett fall in love with her by the summer solstice, then break his heart, or face eternity without her wings—or her soul. To make the task harder, Zafira tells Kaia she cannot use her faerie magic or charm to lure Garrett into her bed.

…and now she’s losing her heart…

Kaia thinks her task will be relatively easy—as a faerie, she understands lust, and can love be much different? But once she is living among the humans, Kaia discovers the race she once disparaged is far more complex and beautiful than she imagined. She learns before she can break Garrett’s heart, she must find a way to heal it. And eventually, discovers that losing her wings may be a far easier price to pay than losing her heart.

Does it match? Front to Back without the in between?
Totally fits. Absolutely. Without a doubt. I’m very, very interested in this. The blurb and the cover are near perfect matches and for me, this is a huge ‘win’ and goes on my TBR pile without a doubt.

Where I’d read it
So many places. I think I’m going to have to get it right now because I am totally intrigued!
