Cover Reveal and a Giveaway

Terri Reed here. Yesterday I received my official copy of the cover for my upcoming April release.
Duty Bound Guardian is book 2 in the Capitol K-9 Unit continuity series.  The series is set in Washington DC and revolves around an elite K-9 unit.

I am so pleased with this cover. The hero is very handsome and the canine is exactly how I pictured him. One of my tasks as an author is to find photographs that are similar to how I envision my characters, including my canine character, as well as settings.
Here are some of the ones I sent in to the art department.
I'll send the first person to guess who these two actors are one of my backlist books!
This is how I picture Adam Donovan, the Capitol K-9 Officer. Do you recognize this actor?  He's in two of my favorite shows.

This is how I imagine Lana Gomez, my heroine. Do you recoginze her? She was a child star. 

And here's Ace, the true hero of the story.  The art department was spot on with the dog they put on the cover.


I also just turned in a short story for the Harlequin website that is set in the world of the Capitol K-9 Unit, titled Dangerous Justice.  It is a free read that will release in March and run for eight weeks, each week a new chapter will go up. So check over at  http://www.harlequin.com about mid-March to read this free read.  

 Here's the titles and authors for the Capitol K-9 Unit continuity novels.

  1. I got so excited to post the actors, I didn't comment about the post! The cover looks great! I know Alexa from The Tomorrow People and Diego from Pacific Rim.

  3. Becky you are right! Diego is in Blacklist and was in Homeland. And Alexa was in Spy Kids. I haven't seen The Tomorrow People or Pacific Rim. Now I'll have to.
    Can you private message me via Facebook with your address and I'll send you a book!

  7. Oh, I love Spykids but didn't see the resemblance until it was pointed out.

    someday I'll get to watch grown-up TV instead of Scooby Doo and Buying Alaska.
