Cover Reveal: Bound and Determined by Yours Truly


Y'all, I literally don't have words right now. Like...this is all so surreal. After so many months of torture - I mean, hard work and dedication, I finally get to share the cover of Bound and Determined with you guys. I just...I can't believe it.

Now, I don't have a preorder link yet or even a release date or anything at all planned at this moment (still knee-deep in edits, y'all), but if you wanna keep up-to-date on all the goings-on with BAD, you can stick around here and follow me on social media...or add BAD to your want-to-read shelf on Goodreads!!!

 

about the book


Port Royal, Jamaica

1686

A wicked twist of fate—or perhaps the hand of God—has landed Captain Rina Bennet in the most precarious situation yet. When her husband and the father of her twin boys leaves at the behest of a family friend, she is left to take charge of the ship she has not sailed on in two years, alongside her two toddlers. She finds herself between a rock and a hard place when her first voyage drastically turns into a rescue mission, leaving her to the ghosts of her old life.

Daisy Sharow has risked it all by escaping from her owner’s tavern in search of her sister. Following God’s direction, she seeks out the only person she trusts to help her: Keaton Clarke. When Daisy stows away aboard the Rina, quartermaster Keaton is faced with a ghost from his past and a decision neither he nor Rina are prepared to make.

Rina has to make a judgment call when the ghosts come knocking, a call that could mean either life or death—for both an innocent girl and herself. Can Daisy, Keaton, and Rina band together to save Daisy’s sister...or is the risk too great?

It was the worst day for a funeral.

Too calm. Too beautiful.

The sun shone too bright.

The sky was too clear.

The breeze was too gentle.

It should’ve been raining, storming, the sky dark and crashing with thunder and lightning.

But it wasn't.

And somehow it fit.

I didn't want to think about why.
