Out of the Embers Cover Reveal

For me, the most exciting part of the whole publication process other than holding the first copy of the finished book is seeing the cover art. Even though we've all been told that we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, if you're like me -- and I suspect you are -- we DO judge by the cover. That's why I wait anxiously for my first look at the cover design. This time the wait was even more nail-biting, because I knew Revell was going to give my new series a new look.

I shouldn't have worried. Once again, they've given me what I think is a fabulous cover. I hope you agree.

Out of the Embers cover
I love the fact that Evelyn looks strong and determined, because she is, and a field of bluebonnets plays a special role in the story, so I'm delighted that it was included on the cover. As for the apron, well ... what else would a woman who opens a restaurant be wearing?

If you're curious about the story itself, here's a blurb designed to intrigue you.
Ten years after her parents were killed, Evelyn Radcliffe is once more homeless. The orphanage that was her refuge and later her workplace has burned to the ground, and only she and a young orphan girl have escaped. Convinced this must be related to her parents’ murders, Evelyn flees with the girl to Mesquite Springs in the Texas Hill Country and finds refuge in the home of Wyatt Clark, a talented horse rancher whose plans don’t include a family of his own.
At first, Evelyn is a distraction. But when it becomes clear that trouble has followed her to Mesquite Springs, she becomes a full-blown disruption. Can Wyatt keep her safe from the man who wants her dead? And will his own plans become collateral damage?
Suspenseful and sweetly romantic, Out of the Embers is the first in a new series that invites you to the Texas Hill Country in the 1850s, when the West was wild, the men were noble, and the women were strong.
Are you intrigued? I hope so.
