Do you judge a book by its cover?

Do you judge a book by its cover?
Over the past few years I have been very fortunate to have a dozen books published. Even more so, I’m ecstatic to have several more due out later this year. For some writing is a job or even a career, but for many of us it is a passion. I would definitely fall into the latter category.
For me there are several things about publishing that give me those little SQUEE moments. First, of course there is that moment when you’re offering a publishing contract for your story. That is a very big SQUEE worthy moment. Then there is edits which, let’s face it, not so SQUEE-ish. Then there is the time when the book cover comes! This can be very SQUEE worthy indeed!
Over the years I have had some covers I like, some I love and then some that I just stare at and say WOWZA… is that my book cover? My question for everyone reading this though is… How important is a book cover to you when you decide to make a purchase? Are you the type to forego reading the blurb all together because the cover turned you off? Or are you the kind that will read all blurbs in your genre of choice regardless of what the cover looks like?
Below please find the covers for all of my current releases. As you can see some are sweet and sensual, while others are very hot!!! Which one is your favorite? If you know what the stories about, please put that out of your mind and just look at the cover. If they were on postcards instead of books, which one would you be sure to buy?
Leave me your answer below in the comment sections along with your email address. One lucky winner will be drawn from the highly scientific method of pulling a name out of a hat. The winner will win an eBook copy of either When Promise Meets Passion or The Nexus (winner’s choice). I will announce the winner on the morning of 9/5 so you all have plenty of time to enter for your chance to win!
And here is a sneak peek at my September 18th release, Entice Me.
Jace Walker served his country for ten years in the Army. Years of combat and war left him with invisible wounds which bring him to the lowest point in his life. In a moment of crisis he meets his angel.

After years of being an attentive and loyal wife, Alexis Foster catches her husband’s infidelity. Her life changes as she gets divorced and becomes a single parent.

Years pass and Jace finds his angel once again. Only this time she’s no longer married. He vows to do anything in his power to sweep her off her feet and make the angel he remembered from all those years before comes his. Despite her insecurities, the two find an attraction stronger than either of them anticipated.

Will he entice her into letting down her walls? Or will she entice him into finding a true and unrelenting love.

Look for Entice me with Siren Bookstrand on September 18th here: http://bookstrand.com/nicole-morgan
