Too Hot for A* Certain* Retailer

It recently came to our (Roz & Jennifer Lynne) attention that the second book in our NOT VANILLA series was not showing up in a title search at a certain retailer. We had our suspicions regarding the reason as other authors have had similar issues in the past. This certain retailer tends to censor covers they deem too risque. (For whom is unclear and unspecified).

Here's the original cover of NOT VANILLA - BONDAGE. 
(Out July 21, 2015)

I thought our cover artist, Willsin Rowe, did a great job of making sure all her naughty bits weren't showing. 
Wanna see how it started out?
Of course you do.

It wasn't to be though. That certain retailer decided it wasn't enough.

What to do?
We liked that cover.
We didn't want to start over.
It looked pretty darn good next to the cover of the first in the series, NOT VANILLA - VOYEURISM.

So...this is what we did.

We changed it, putting the original, arguably offensive, one inside the file, so the reader will still get our lovely cover!

The voice of the censor said this was okay and took the search restrictions off our book.
Go figure.

Preorder your copy at one of these retailers. (Only one of them will display the new cover. The others still have the original cover.)

USA Today Bestselling Author Roz Lee, and Bestselling Author Jennifer Lynne, invite you to taste the forbidden in a brand-new series offering a tantalizing glimpse into a range of "flavors" that are definitely not vanilla!

The second in this series, NOT VANILLA - BONDAGE, will be out on July 21st, and includes HUNG UP by Roz Lee and ALPHA SUBMISSIVE by Jennifer Lynne. These sexy, novelette-length stories are designed to take you into the erotic world of rope bondage, while still holding onto the romance.

Hung Up by Roz Lee
I should have told Colton what he could do with his money, but I need it to keep the doors of my dance studio open. So, here I am, naked and bound, with a bull rope around my waist, and despite the intricate suspension system holding me up, I’m falling hard. Falling for the impossible man who threw me for a loop and lassoed my heart. Beth
Alpha Submissive by Jennifer Lynne
What happens when a driven, alpha woman is forced by circumstance to participate in a shibari rope display? Bound and immobilized by the country’s leading Dominant rope master, Ava fights to keep control. If she does the unthinkable and allows herself to submit to Roane, will she lose the only part of herself that really matters—her heart—to the man who now holds her destiny in his practiced hands?
