It’s been an exciting couple of weeks around here! Super busy weeks, too, but it’s all good. Last week I celebrated more than Thanksgiving. My newest inspirational romance novel, Trust of the Heart, released from Astraea Press much earlier than I expected! I love my publisher for moving up the release date. I also love the gorgeous cover they designed for the book. Check it out:
Speaking of covers, I’ve been working on a super-secret project for a while now. Okay, so it really wasn’t that secret since a handful of people knew what I was doing, but I love a bit of suspense. Don’t you?
Now that you’re probably dying of curiosity (hey, a girl can dream!), I let you know what that project was. I designed a brand new cover for my sweet romance, Finding the Way Back! I think it captures the essence of the story much better than the old one, don’t you?
Now that you’ve seen the covers, I’m sure you’re dying to know more about the books they represent. Right? (Yes, I’m dreaming again. LOL) How about I share the blurbs and some buy links?
Trust of the Heart
Josh Teague has dark memories from his time in Iraq. While he longs to share the burden of those memories with someone, he is afraid they will scare his girlfriend. Unwilling to risk losing her, he keeps the memories to himself and tries to keep a cheerful attitude despite the holiday season threatening to bring his mood down.
Leann Robak has her own set of memories causing trouble. Abandoned by her father when she was ten, she is devastated when her mother announces she’s taking a month-long trip to Europe over Christmas. Although Josh’s invitation to spend Christmas with him at his parents’ house holds exciting prospects, Leann can tell he’s hiding something from her. That knowledge leaves her wondering how well she truly knows him and whether he even wants to be in a relationship with her.
Can Josh and Leann learn to trust each other fully, or will their insecurities drive them apart?
Finding the Way Back
Nurse practitioner Hazel Baker is stunned when the Agency asks her to take a traumatized field agent home with her. Her immediate concern is how it will affect her four-year-old daughter. But, after meeting the broken man, she can’t deny him the opportunity for healing and opens her home to him. If only she could find a way to help him regain the ability to speak, which he lost after being captured during a mission…
Ian Grant may not have a voice, but he still has a conscience — something many of his colleagues at the Agency seem to have lost. Their unethical behavior set back his recovery from the torture he endured, but his move to Hazel’s house gives him hope that perhaps someone truly does care about him, not just what he knows. But can Hazel’s gentle presence and her daughter’s innocence help him find the strength to fight against the corruption riddling the Agency?
Finding the Way Back is available from Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords. The new cover isn’t live at all of these retailers at the time I’m writing this post, but rest assured it will be there soon.
