Cover Love ~ Bad to the Bone

Jeri Smith-Ready has posted her cover for Bad to the Bone, the sequel to Wicked Game.

Here's the back cover blurb:

Turn On. Tune In. Drop Dead.

If you’re just joining us, welcome to radio station WVMP, “The Lifeblood of Rock ’n’ Roll.” Con-artist-turned-station-owner Ciara Griffin manages an on-air staff of off-the-wall DJs—including her new boyfriend Shane McAllister—who really sink their teeth into the music of their ‘Life Time” (the era in which they became vampires). It’s Ciara’s job to keep the undead rocking, the ratings rolling, and the fan base alive—without missing a beat.

For Halloween, WVMP is throwing a bash sure to raise the dead. They’ve got cool tunes, hot costumes, killer cocktails—what could go wrong? Well, for starters, a religious firebrand ranting against the evils of the occult preempts the station’s midnight broadcast. Then, when Ciara tracks down the illegal transmission, the broadcast tower is guarded by what appears to be…a canine vampire? And behind it all is a group of self-righteous radicals who think vampires suck (and are willing to stake their lives on it).

Now Ciara must protect the station while struggling with her own murky relationship issues, her best friend’s unlikely romance with a fledgling vampire, and the nature of her mysterious anti-holy powers. To make it to New Year’s in one piece, she’ll need to learn a few new tricks…

A puppy vamp folks. How cool is that? I like the colors on the cover and the pup... well, he definitely looks like he could pull off some major vamp-a-tude. If that doesn't grab your interest Smith-Ready has posted the first chapter of Bad to the Bone on her site. Yep, I'll be reading this one. Love those vamp DJs! Release date of May 19.

And if you haven't read the first book, Wicked Game, you can read my review of it here. Smith-Ready is also the very talented author of the Aspects of Crow trilogy (which I still need to read) as well as the novel Requiem for the Devil which I haven't read either but has been on my Amazon wish list for some time.


  1. It's not just the cover, it's her top!! and her dog!! LOL :) Love it.

    I still haven't read any books by this author, but I'm interested...

  2. I love her top too and the glimpses of tatts. I think the dogs eyes should glow red.

    I've read only glowing reviews of her Aspects of Crow trilogy. I've got them just haven't found time to read them. Someday soon.
