A new cover!

Here’s my cover for Forever Again, my Jan 3rd release from Samhain Publishing:

Fifteen years ago, Gena Taylor and Travis Ryan were forced into a marriage neither wanted, the price they paid after one night of passion. But what he believed to be a lie forced Travis to walk out of her life shortly thereafter, crushing Gena’s dreams of a happily ever after with the only man she’d ever loved.

Fifteen years later, Travis and Gena meet again. Only now, she owns the inn he’s considering for his wedding – to another woman. And this time, she’s guarding her heart carefully. She’s not going to allow him to hurt her – or their daughter.

Despite their resolve to keep things impersonal, the past comes rushing back and feelings they both thought long dead rise from the ashes. But there are other lives at stake now, including that of the child Travis once thought was a lie.

Isn’t it purty?

    But yes, it is purdy. Very.

    Ooooohh sounds like my kinda book!! BTW, I finally got round to reading Roadtrip (yes I’m too lazy for the full title) and I thought it was great! I actually laughed out loud, and that doesn’t happen too often!

    Thank you thank you!!!

    And yes, the cover gods have been smiling on me. :dance:

    I call it Roadtrip, too, Karen, and I’m glad you enjoyed it! I’ll admit that I was nervously awaiting your verdict a little bit. :baby: So I’m thrilled you laughed out loud! :clap:

    yes I agree, it’s refreshing to see a romance novel cover that doesn’t degrade men by showing off their pectorals. I’m looking forward to see if this couple really can overcome all odds and find true inner peace and happiness:dance: Now I must retire to the downstaires where my wife is eagerly awaiting my presence in the bedroom:censor:

    Sigh. I love that cover. I want to curl up on one of the chairs with a cup of coffee and a good book. Or a good man. :wink:

    Beeeeyooootiful, babe! :cheer:

    It’s lovely and I agree, makes you want to curl up in the chairs on the porch and read Forever Again. You have lucked out and I think it’s because, well, luck doesn’t come easy for you–does it? I know it doesn’t for me. I just hope that one day, I can have covers worthy of yours.

    Can’t wait to read this one either and it comes out on my DD’s 11th birthday. So, I won’t forget.
