Once again, I’ve been blessed by those lovely little cover fairies. I have TWO books coming out on New Year’s Day and have recently received the cover for both. So not to overload you, I thought I’d reveal one cover at a time.
Without further ado, I give you MAN DROUGHT (Harlequin Australia, Jan 2013):
Imogen Bates moved to the small rural town of Gibson’s Find to start a new life for herself after the death of her husband. Tired of being haunted by the painful memories of her old life, Imogen set her last remaining hopes on the little town and, in particular, pouring her heart and savings into restoring The Majestic Hotel to its former glory. But while the female-starved town might be glad to see a young woman move in, not everyone is happy about Imogen’s arrival.
Sheep and crop farmer Gibson Black once dreamed of having the kind of family his grandfather reminisces about, but he’s learnt not to dream anymore. Living in the mostly male town suits Gibson down to the ground…and he won’t have anyone — least of all a hot redhead from the city — change a thing.
Imogen has never been one to back down from a challenge, especially when it concerns her last chance at happiness. She’s determined to rebuild the pub and create a future for the little town. But can she create a future for Gibson and herself, too?
I’ll be popping an extract up on my website soon but in the meantime I’d love your thoughts on MAN DROUGHT’S cover. It was not what I was expecting but I fell hard and fast for it. I love it because it’s a bit different from most of the other rural romances out there, which I think is a good thing because this is definitely a romance first and foremost! What do you think?
