The Lost Heiress ARC Giveaway II - Cover Reveal!

It's been so much fun to share a sneak peek at The Lost Heiress with you! I hope everyone enjoyed the first chapter that I shared on Thursday.

As I was chatting with the team about this contest, they suggested a cover reveal as part of the festivities, which got me SUPER excited--I didn't know I could share so soon! But oh my gracious, y'all. Oh my gracious. This cover for book 2 in the Ladies of the Manor series is beyond gorgeous. And so, with no further ado, allow me to present Rowena from The Reluctant Duchess!!


I cannot begin to express how much I adore this cover. I love the cover for The Lost Heiress and really didn't know how they'd top it, but...RED! I love the red dress. Seriously, truly love it. And I just have to point out what a fabulous job the cover team did. This is the photo I sent them for what I'd based Rowena's physical appearance on:
My editor said she loved the expression on Emma Watson's face here and that she'd tell them to try to match it. And they did! The soft eyes, the not-quite-smiling mouth, the hesitancy but honesty. Perfect for my reluctant duchess. =D

Here's the official blurb for book 2.



Lady Rowena Kinnaird may be the heiress to a Highland earldom, but she has never felt good enough—not for her father, not for the man she thought she’d marry, not for God. But after a shocking attack, she’s willing to be forever an outcast if it means escaping Loch Morar and the men who have jeopardized her life.
Brice Myerston, the Duke of Nottingham, has suddenly found himself in possession of a rare treasure his enemies are prepared to kill for. While Brice has never been one to shy away from manor-born ladies, the last thing he needs is the distraction of his neighbor, Lady Rowena, who finds herself in a desperate situation. But when the moody Earl of Lochabar tries to trap Brice into marrying Rowena, Brice finds he’s not as opposed to the idea as he expected to be.
Rowena wanted to escape the Highlands, but she’s reluctant to resort to marrying a notorious flirt just to gain his English home. And when she learns that Brice is mixed up in some kind of questionable business with a stolen treasure, she fears she’s about to end up directly in the path of everything she was trying to avoid.

Now back to the giveaway! I've added a new option for earning entries, so have at it and good luck!

    1. I know, the detail is exquisite! And I was thrilled when they gave me that final title. Its working title had been The Outcast Duchess, which I came up with but never really loved, LOL--when they recommended Reluctant instead, it got an immediate, "YES!" from me. =)

  13. The cover is breathtaking. Inside the book is a story waiting for readers to explore and become intrigued by the characters and their struggles. I would love to read this book and do a review. If you are looking for reviewers or influencers I would be honored if you considered me.
