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.
