I'm happy to report that a week or two ago, I got to fill out cover information for The Lost Heiress. YAY!!! I love the cover aspect of a book, and the designers at Bethany House always do such a fabulous job that I just know I'm going to adore whatever they come up.
One of things that I've found is invaluable to cover designers is a good Pinterest board. I have a pretty full one for The Lost Heiress...and am just getting started on my board for the sequel, The Outcast Duchess. And...yeah. It could use some help, LOL. Things like 1912 fashions shouldn't be too hard, and I've got a couple great pictures of the castle my heroine's home is based on, and on Loch Morar.
Most recently I put my husband on the task of figuring out what kind of car Brice, the Duke of Nottingham, would drive--we decided it would definitely be an Austin. Austin was not only a British company (and Brice would totally go British), it was the one most popular with the nobility. And see, where Justin and Brook in The Lost Heiress are interested in cars for cars' sake, in the engineering and the innovation, Brice is more the "What a nifty little machine. I think I'll have one." type of guy. ;-)
So here is Brice's car...
And Emma Watson (when she isn't styled for sexy) is a pretty decent Rowena Kinnaird...
But I admit to some trouble trying to find my perfect Brice. He needs to be oh-so-handsome. Swoon-worthy. Suave, genteel, elegant. With a healthy dose of wit and perpetual good humor. I've been toying with maybe using Colin O'Donoghue (who I adore as Hook on Once Upon a Time)
...but I don't know. He does a fabulous rogue, but Brice is more smooth charm that roguish charm. So I am totally open for suggestions of other tall, dark, and handsome heroes. ;-) So...who are you favorite actors that fit the bill?
