Cover Reveal for Lord of Her Heart

cover reveal _lohh

Opening up my email and seeing the cover of my debut novel, Lord of Her Heart, has been one of the most exciting aspects of this publication journey. Yes, getting the contract was HUGE, but seeing the cover made it seem real. My book baby got all dressed up and looks amazing! I’m so excited to reveal the cover to you today!

Writing a romance set in the middle ages was such fun. Throwing Jocelyn, a high-born lady disguised as a boy, with Malcolm, a fierce knight looking to make a name for himself, ended up being more fun to write than I originally thought. While they both want the same thing – a sense of home and security – they must deal with their trust issues in order to work together to reach their goals.

Here’s a sneak peek at Lord of Her Heart‘s back cover copy:

Lady Jocelyn Ashburne suspects something is amiss at her family’s castle because her father ceases to write to her. When she overhears a plot to force her into vows—either to the church or a husband—she disguises herself and flees the convent in desperation to discover the truth.

Malcolm Castillon of Berkham is determined to win the next tournament and be granted a manor of his own. After years of proving his worth on the jousting field, he yearns for a life of peace. Rescuing a scrawny lad who turns out to be a beautiful woman is not what he bargained for. Still, he cannot deny that she stirs his heart like no other, in spite
of her conniving ways.

Chaos, deception, and treachery threaten their goals, but both are determined to succeed. Learning to trust each other might be the only way either of them survives.

I gave my newsletter subscribers an early peek yesterday, but here is Lord of Her Heart‘s cover!

I think Elaina Lee and the team at Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas did a fabulous job. I love the way he is holding her, the sword in his hand, the purple-tinged mist and clouds, and the castle in the background. And check out that long name at the bottom of the cover! Somebody pinch me!

Lord of Her Heart is scheduled for release May 14, 2019.  You won’t miss it. I will be sharing more about it as the day draws near.

What do you think of Lord of Her Heart‘s cover?

Romance covers…you gotta love ’em. This cover is just plain weird. First, her position in the tree…can we say OUT OF PROPORTION? Then look at the hero’s expression. Is that fear? Really…doesn’t that just make you want to pick this book up and read it?

I didn’t think so.

I’ve got book covers through the ages posted over at The Writer’s Alley today. It took me HOURS to put it together, so go take a look and tell which is your favorite. (Personally, I like the one with the floating heads around the heroine.)

Fatty Friday & Loving Book Covers!

As you can see by my title, my weigh in did not go well, but I’m not going to whine. I gained .4 pounds, which “could” have been due to the fact that I was wearing jeans instead of something more lightweight like I had been. Nonetheless, I ate out more and gave into the bread. I cannot pass up a hot, steamy roll, golden and glistening with what looks to be decadent butter. What is it with the carbs anyway? But here’s to a new day. A new week. Discipline and will power is mine, I say.
I was thinking a post about the worst book covers ever would be a great idea. And it really is, except for the fact that alot of the covers I found are not appropriate. Seriously, my husband and I were crying with laughter over some of these covers. Oh my, I sure with I could post some. But alas, my tender sensibilities keeps me in line and I shall refrain.
So, I thought I’d share some covers that I absolutely love.



These are just a few of my favorite covers. I haven’t read all of them, but I just think they are lovely and would make me pick them up off the shelf.

What kinds of covers are you drawn to?
