Wicked Wednesday -- New Cover!
Just in time for Wicked Wednesday, I received my newest cover--for my Edwardian-set October 2009 release, A MIDNIGHT CLEAR (Zebra Books). It's pretty hot, I think! But what I really love about it is that it really captures the tone of the book, which is a little darker and angstier than my previous historicals. I also love that it shares similar elements with the WINTER'S DESIRE cover--the moon, the bare branches, the darker palette. And I'll be the first to admit--I *love* gold foil lettering!
Here's the back blurb:
HE WAS HER FORBIDDEN FANTASY...
Miranda Granger arrives at the spectacular seaside resort The Grandview Hotel to spend the Christmas holidays, hoping it will be just the tonic she needs to forget her scandalous past. But when she crosses paths with Troy Davenport, the alluring stranger she met aboard an ocean liner, Miranda fears she will repeat the mistake that almost ruined her reputation many years ago.
SHE WAS HIS GREATEST MUSE...
Troy Davenport has been struggling to paint the stunning woman he encountered by moonlight on the ship's deck. If only he could meet his muse again. When he learns she's staying at The Grandview, it takes a great deal of convincing to let him paint her. But once he begins he realizes he wants more than to capture her unique beauty on canvas. When they surrender to an all-consuming passion, Troy's past threatens to tear them apart--unless a Christmas miracle can save their love.
So....what do you think??
