DEADLY CONTACT cover!

It's here!  The cover for DEADLY CONTACT is here, and it's gorgeous! Check it out:


I have been staring at it for the past few days, obsessively looking at every little aspect.  I love how well they captured Kelly and James, right down to her messy ponytail and his jaw line.  Even the location is perfect, as a critical scene takes place in a stairwell (and no, I'm not going to tell you what happens!).

And let's not forget the back cover blurb: 
It's a race against time—and a fatal outbreak—in this thriller of a debut! 
In one passionate night Special Agent James Reynolds and scientist Kelly Jarvis went from friends to lovers. Then Kelly walked away with only an apology. Now James is charged with solving a bioterrorist attack—and Dr. Jarvis works at the suspected lab. 
Is Kelly an accomplice or a victim? Just what are her secrets that drove her from James's bed? Soon one thing becomes clear: The ghosts of her past have nothing on the terrorists targeting her and Washington, D.C. Another threat bathes the city in red alert, and now there are lives at stake, in addition to hearts….
I can't stop smiling--having the cover art makes it feel even more real, and I can't wait to hold the book in my hands!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go print out a few hundred copies so I can wallpaper my room...
