Cover Oooo La La!

So I was all set to blog about seven great things about being a writer (to be followed by seven lousy things about being a writer) when there, in my mailbox, were cover flats of MY LORD'S DESIRE. My precious! My precious! Here's what the back cover says:

A Scandalous Vow

She had sworn never to marry, never to allow any man to claim her or her lands. Nevertheless, Lady Adelaide fended off fortune hunters aplenty when she arrived at the king's court. Yet when dark whispers in castle corridors threw her into the arms of a valiant knight seeking a wife, the beautiful heiress began to rethink her solemn vow.

A Brazen Betrothal

To ransom his captive brother, Armand de Boisbaston had great need of a wealthy -- and willing -- wife. Fate sent him the lady Adelaide instead. A woman who claimed she wished to avoid the marriage bed, yet whose lips told a different tale. Now dangerous intrigues forced them into a match as inescapable as the burgeoning passion that grew between them.

I don't usually show the back cover, but I really like how the couple are almost kissing here. Also, that guy has great lips. You can't really tell here, but believe me, they are nice. So's his chin. And nose. Heck, he's just all 'round good-looking!

MY LORD'S DESIRE will be on the shelves next January.

I got another treat in the mail recently. I received copies of the Japanese edition of LORD OF DUNKEATHE. The art on this cover was in the inside of the cover of the North American edition, which has one of the most beautiful covers I've ever had.

Love the cover, too! All your HQN covers have been great.

I met you at the literacy signing at the Dallas conference three years ago and confessed to you what an inspiration you've been to me. You were so lovely and encouraging. Thank you.

I love your books and think you're one of the most talented historical authors out there. I'm reading HERS TO COMMAND right now and LOVING it. No surprise! =)

Since we met, I've signed with Avon for historicals -- a dream come true. Thanks for writing books that have been such a pleasure and inspiration!

Many, many congratulations! And how nice of you to let me know that I was inspiring in any way! I'm going to go check out your website now to get the details of titles, settings, etc. etc.
That's so exciting! And thank you for those lovely words!

I love the covers!! I'm glad I have discovered this time period. Now if I could only get spare time to read all the books I've ordered! LOL. I wanted to tell you that I love your blog. You are such an inspiration. So many times you are right on target about writing.
