Yeah, I've got the B&N one as well. But for reissues, Fantastic Fiction is better at returning the original covers. Not always. I still have to manually search at times.
I have FictionDB set for metadata only and covers I get from goodreads, Amazon, B&N or Fantastic Fiction.

I'm a little different. The cover must match the edition.

Crazy Kisses by Tara Janzen (Steele Street #4) - previously published by Dell 2006


Quote:
HE’S GOT A BOUNTY ON HIS HEAD – AND A WOMAN ON HIS MIND.

Special Ops soldier Kid Chaos Chronopolous is at the top of a Colombian drug lord’s hit list – with good reason. Under orders and undercover, Kid has been on a mission of revenge, taking out his brother’s murderers and the drug lord’s top lieutenants. Now, broke down and patched up, he’s coming home to Panama City to get out of the line of fire and get some rest. Then he finds a bikini bottom in his bathroom, a familiar scrap of next-to-nothing that can only belong to one woman - his woman, the only woman he's ever loved.

TOGETHER, THEY’RE A DEADLY COMBINATION

Together, they’re a train wreck, scorching, sultry nights of passion followed by Kid leaving and breaking Nikki McKinney’s heart every time. She’s only come to Panama to say her last goodbye. But Kid’s mission puts her squarely in the crosshairs of the drug lord’s assassins, and when Nikki is captured by Kid's enemies, only his deadliest skills can save her...

I'm getting ready to start this series. I am told it has a very similar concept to the Black Knights Inc series by Julie Ann Walker.

I have the whole Steele Street series (6 books in total) along with the Steele Street - Loose series. Haven't quite gotten around to starting this series. So many books, so little time.

While you're out there grabbing plugins, make sure you get ePubSplit too. Absolutely awesome for breaking up bundles!!!!!
I am almost embarrassed to ask, but where does one get these plugins? They sound extremely useful, but I have never heard of them before. Do you add them to Calibre?

Yes in the plugin screen on Calibre click Get New Plugins and you will find a whole bunch of goodies. I've got Epubsplit and Epub merge and several metadata plugins. Cover Resize one is another one I love. Oh and Generate Cover for those books that need one. My most favorite is mobi unpack. It extracts the content of a mobi file allowing me to edit it! It also extracts the new KF8 into a epub so there's no need to convert.

Me too. I use it for the books I keep on my Kindle Fire for referencing. One series has like 20 books so I use that plugins to merge 6 books together each so instead of 20 I now have 4 that I can search through quickly.

I also love Epub split. I took that Naked Series by Sally MacKenzie and used that plugin to split everything into individual books. I find most bundles don't come in order and this is a great way to fix that. I use to have to do it manually.

Just a heads for you Audible members. Until the end of the month they have the Molly Harper and Vicki Lewis Thompson werewolf books on sale for $6.95 a piece. There's other werewolf books too. It's part of there Shocktober sale.

I just finished a Werewolf in Manhattan and loved it! If you like light-hearted funny paranormals like say Lindsay Sands you will enjoy Vicki Lewis Thompson's werewolf series. This is my third book by this author. I've read a few of her old HQs and I've enjoy them all. She can really write tension well.

Molly Harper is very funny and I love her books. I don't know about you but I prefer fun, non scary books like these over the more dark ones out there. I scare easy.

If you like Urban Fantasy the Kitty Norville books are part of the series. Not really romance although there is a love triangle in it. I got stuck after the vegas book. Ah well.

Lots of gratitude to Library Addict, Apesmom, and Blossom for all the plug-in tips.

I spent last evening happily splitting my bundles into individual books. Love all the new cover plug-ins. I still enjoy manual cover searches on special books, often public domain where I want the 1st edition dust jacket or pulp pb cover. Some of my best have come from eBay. The Modify Epub plug-in allowed me to go back and replace covers with the ones that I already found for the Calibre display.

Thank you all for the epub split plug-in, it's WONDERFUL! I didn't know about this plugin and I just downloaded it and split a volume of 3 books into 3 individual books. Great tool! Thanks again for the tip!
