There's something about seeing the cover for the first book in a new series.
Maybe it's because it's a whole new style, a whole new look that you know will carry out through the subsequent books.
Maybe it's because there are new themes, new characters.
Or maybe it's just because it's always exciting to get a new cover, no matter the number in the series. ;-)
Regardless, I was sooooooo excited to see this when I got my first glimpse a month ago, and I am equally excited to get to share it with you now! This cover totally and completely (in my opinion, LOL) captures the essence of the story. Rosemary--perfect. The books!--perfect. The pose--perfect. *Blissful sigh*
A Name Unknown will release next July. Description below. But for now . . . THE COVER!!!!!
Edwardian Romance and History Gains a Twist of Suspense
Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins that helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they concentrate on stealing high-value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. But when Rosemary must determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany, she is in for the challenge of a lifetime. How does one steal a family's history, their very name?Peter Holstein, given his family's German blood, writes his popular series of adventure novels under a pen name. With European politics boiling and his own neighbors suspicious of him, Peter debates whether it might be best to change his name for good. When Rosemary shows up at his door pretending to be a historian and offering to help him trace his family history, his question might be answered.
But as the two work together and Rosemary sees his gracious reaction to his neighbors' scornful attacks, she wonders if her assignment is going down the wrong path. Is it too late to help him prove that he's more than his name?
I know, I know--you are now so eager to get your hands on this book that you want to rush out and pre-order a copy. Ahem. ;-) The Amazon link is live--I'll post others as they appear.
