Book Cover Reveal + Amazon Giveaway!

Several months back, I announced here on the blog that I had sold my first inspirational romantic suspense novel, Under Duress, to Love Inspired Suspense. I've been fairly quiet about it since then because after the couple of months of revisions and edits, there hasn't been much happening, at least on my end. I’ve just been waiting, sometimes not so patiently, for its release in February of 2016.

And then, suddenly something wonderful happened! My editor sent me the cover of my book!!!




What do you think?

I LOVE this book cover! What a sensational image for my debut novel! The lightning is perfect the way it jags across the sky. The corn is just the right height. And can you see the rain slanting down from the clouds?

The artists at Love Inspired Suspense {Harlequin} did a fantastic job, and it's everything I could dream of to match the story that fills the pages! Can you tell I'm a wee bit excited? J


From the back cover ~

Criminals are trying to kidnap attorney Samantha Callahan’s adopted daughter, Lily—and she has no idea why. So when bullets start flying, Samantha and Lily speed off in her car…and crash right into help. Ex-cop Reid Palmer is shocked when former law school classmate Samantha rear-ends his car and then climbs in with her daughter and begs him to drive. Now they are on the run, and Reid will do anything to protect them and figure out why kidnappers are after Lily. As they struggle to evade capture, Reid begins to realize that Samantha is more to him than just a woman in trouble. But with the enemies closing in and their motives finally revealed, will Reid be able to make sure justice is served?


Here's another exciting development, enough to give me goosebumps.... It's available for pre-order on Amazon! {affiliate link}





Let's celebrate! How does a giveaway sound?

Just because it's fun, I'm giving away a $10 gift certificate to Amazon. {This is where I should say it would be wonderful if the winner used it to preorder my book and then said winner would still have some left over since the book is the low, low price of $5.99, but I won't say all that. J}

Thank you, thank you, thank you for spending your precious minutes reading here! I appreciate you!
