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.
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.
