All right, all right--I know that the very first thing y'all saw was "cover reveal" and the first thing you thought was "Bound and Determined." But y'all can mosey on back up to that picture and take in the words "The Gift of Her Heart" and get that fool notion out of your head. BAD's cover won't be arriving for another six months, probably. (I know; I'm just as upset about that as you are.) So, to tide you over, I'm revealing the new--and improved--cover for The Gift of Her Heart!
I spent two weeks toying with two of my favorite side characters, Kit Arlington and Chloe Wellington, back in May, and ended up with a full-blown Christmas novella for their love story. It comes right smack in between Held Captive and Prisoner at Heart, although it's part of my companion/prequel series for the Daughters of the Seven Seas, The Arlington Family.
I shared about it in one of my earlier blog posts, but I'll give y'all a blurb here too.
'Tis Christmastime in Port Royal, Jamaica, in the year 1683, and Lady Chloe Wellington has her holiday all planned out. Then one fruitcake and a startling secret sends her well-laid plans careening into the ocean...and her well-protected heart into the hands of her nemesis.
The cover, which I designed all on my own with Paint and a stock picture, looked like this:
Yeah...it's kind of so-so. Much better than the covers for my two Christmas short stories (which I hope to redo eventually), but not as good as it could've been.
Which is why I'm debuting TWO surprises this holiday season!
A new cover for TGOHH AND the paperback version!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was originally available in eBook format only, but now that Christmas is right around the corner, I'm publishing it in print as well, and it should be available for purchase in a day or two!
So, without further ado, I present to you the brand-new cover (which has taken me a month to get right) for The Gift of Her Heart...
Isn't. It. Gorgeous.
A huge thanks to Canva.com for making design easy (when Kindle Cover Creator didn't). I am SUPER excited about this new cover, and I can't wait to see what God will do with my (partially existent) design skills in the future! Hopefully I'll be designing my own novel covers one day!
Anywho...I hope y'all enjoyed getting the first glimpse of The Gift of Her Heart! Don't forget--I'm having a giveaway for an e-copy in December, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
