Champion Cover Reveal Giveaway

I have a couple of exciting announcements today (a new cover and a new audiobook!) PLUS a giveaway to celebrate the reveal of the cover of CHAMPION (Galactic Gladiators #5). Scroll down to enter the giveaway.

1) Super thrilled to announce that the third Hell Squad audiobook, GABE, is now available.

Hell Squad soldier Gabe Jackson has lost everything that mattered, including his twin brother. Now he just wants to kill the invading aliens anyway he knows how…and he knows a lot of ways. Previously part of a secret Army super-soldier project, he’s faster, stronger, deadlier…but on the inside, he’s a mass of rage, and pain, and grief—all waiting for a chance to drag him under. Until he finds her.

Narrated by Jeffrey Kafer and Samantha Cook

2) I have an amazing new Galactic Gladiators cover to show you!

Fighting for love, honor, and freedom on the galaxy’s lawless outer rim…

In Protector, charming showman gladiator Lore rescued space station commander Madeline and melted the ice around her heart. Now, gladiator Saff Essikani, the best net fighter in the Kor Magna Arena, collides with tortured space marine Blaine Strong in a competitive battle of wills.

    The cover is awesome! I love how they are both on the cover! It is wonderful how you have space in the background and the arena on the bottom! You always have the best covers and make the rest of them look boring in comparison!

  2. Champion is a Great Cover, I can’t wait to Read!!!

  3. Ooohhh…Awesome cover. Might be one of your best!

  4. Love the new cover. Can’t wait!

  5. Beautiful cover! I actually almost wish it was just Saff on here but I know we need the male hotness too. And these two are probably too competitive to not share the cover 😉
    Cant wait to read it!!!

    • Anna Hackett says

      I did think about just Saff, Kyrene…but then my cover artist did this version and I was sold (-: And yes, you’re right on the competitiveness!!

  6. Another great cover! The only word that comes to mind: luscious! I, too, love the background on this and the other covers. That attention to detail is so wonderful…not only the artwork but in the stories too. I think that’s part of making this universe really come alive for us readers.

  7. Tiffany Trumm Jorgenson says

    I like the combo of the two together!

  8. Amy Leech says

    So looking forward to Champion, the cover looks awesome x

  39. Shannon Ferguson says

    Hi Anna! The cover for Champion rocks! I can’t wait to read Saff and Blaine’s story. You also put together a great giveaway. I’m sure crossing my fingers for this one (like I do for all of your giveaways…lol)!

  40. I’ve been waiting with baited breath for ‘Champion’. I LOVE THIS SERIES!

  41. I am so excited and counting down until March 28th for Protector’s release. The cover is awesome and means a lot to me because I don’t often get to read about characters that look like me. I became a fan about a week ago when I started the series and just wrapped up the fourth book today. You have found the balance between a real Sci-Fi plot coupled with steamy romance. Thanks so much Anna!

    • Anna Hackett says

      I am so thrilled you love the cover and the gladiators, Melissa! I am having such fun with this series — and blending action-packed sci-fi and steamy romance is my fav thing 🙂 Happy reading.

  42. Christiane says

    Another great cover.
    They look very sexy together and I love the sword!
    Thought Blaine might have some scars, but that tattoo is stunning.

    Soon, we can read it…

    • Anna Hackett says

      Thanks, Christiane! Yes, Blaine has some scars…but I couldn’t find a sexy gladiator pic with scars (-: Coming soon!

  43. Melissa Schmidt says

    Love that they are both on the cover. Can’t wait to read. Loved their scenes shared in Protector.

    • Anna Hackett says

      I knew Saff had to be on their with Blaine, Melissa! And prepare for more like their scene in Protector…these two are competitive!!!

  44. Cindi Knowles says

    I’m loving the cover! Can’t wait to read their story!

  45. Beautiful cover! I was sad to finished Protector already but really glad for the teaser!
