Cover Reveal: Her Place in Time: A time travel romance by Stephenia H. McGee

Hello, reader friends. I’m excited to be able to bring you a cover reveal for Stephenia H. McGee’s new book “Her Place in Time: A time travel romance” scheduled to release on May 25, 2018.  Let’s take a look!

 

 

HerPlaceInTime

Synopsis:

Can love offer a new future…in the past?

A mysterious gown, unexpected courage, and a love that transcends time.

Nursing student Lena Lowery faces a grim diagnosis and a dangerous surgery. On the cusp of the life-changing procedure, Lena stays at the Rosswood Plantation Bed and Breakfast for one last weekend with her mother. There in an antique armoire, Lena discovers a Civil War-era gown that holds an unimaginable cure…a trip back in time to when the house served as a hospital.

Confederate Sergeant Caleb Dockery lost his brother, his eye, and nearly his life. Stuck in a makeshift infirmary, he’s counting the days until he can return to duty…and seek revenge. When a stranger appears, he suspects she’s a spy. If he can’t return to duty and find the revenge he craves for his brother’s death, he can serve his country by stopping this traitor. But her nursing skills are saving lives, and her courage and independence stirs his heart. When Lena’s safety is threatened, Caleb must strain the loyalties that bind him or risk losing her forever.

Caught between a future that holds no promises and a past that could offer new life, Lena must face an extraordinary decision. Should she return to her own time where her days are numbered? Or can she and Caleb find a love that stretches across time?

If you like historical romance with a twist, strong female characters, and heroes that transcend eras, you’ll love this journey through time that tests the limits of love.

*Her Place in Time is set in the house from The Liberator Series, just prior to the start of Leveraging Lincoln. Fans of the series will enjoy seeing Annabelle and Peggy in this new novella.

Cover Reveal – Among The Poppies by J’nell Ciesielski

Hi Friends, I’m super excited to share a special cover real with you today!

Please join me in sharing the cover love for J’nell Ciesielski’s debut novel
Among The Poppies

About the Book:

The ideal lady wears lace, speaks quietly, and never under any circumstances fixes her own automobiles. But Gwyn Ruthers has never cared two snaps for the ideal lady. With the war to end all wars exploding across the Channel, she leaves behind her restrictive life as a chauffer’s daughter to serve in an all-female ambulance unit in France. Rambling over bomb blasted roads is far from the exotic travel she had in mind, but not even a handsome captain can distract her from the purpose at hand. Most of the time.

Slogging through mud and a despair that no man should have to witness, Captain William Crawford stumbles over a woman—quite literally—who has the ridiculous notion to enter a man’s fight along the Front. Why can she not sit patiently at home like all the other complacent women?

Bound together by circumstances beyond their control, Gwyn and William must fight to survive the battle raging all around them. Can their love survive or will it become another casualty of war?

About the Author:

J'Nell Ciesielski For as long as I can remember I’ve always had a book in my hand. When other girls went to the library to look at the Babysitter’s Club books, my mom found me sitting in the history aisle with a stack of Civil War books, and autobiographies of legends long gone. I loved being transported to other places and times, where men are chivalrous knights to the rescue and women wear big frilly dresses. I’ve always believed I was born in the wrong time period … but I digress.

With my natural curiosity of all things old-fashioned and love of happily ever afters, it was only natural I decided to pen a few of my own.

Born in Florida, I spent the many happy days of childhood running around our large backyard and splashing on the sugar white beaches known only to the Sunshine State. Just before high school, my dad got a job transfer to Texas and a whole new life began. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a B.S. in Psychology the summer of 2005.

Not knowing what else to do with my life, I joined the Air Force. Stationed in Germany I was able to travel to places I’d only dreamed of: France, Austria, Netherlands, England, and my

favorite Scotland. I also met my awesome husband while over there. I consider him my consolation prize for the years being forced to wear camouflage and combat boots.

After serving our four years, we now live in Virginia where we’ve been blessed that I can stay home and write all day. Yay! When I’m not writing you can find me baking something with chocolate, making my baby girl laugh, or giving belly rubs to our beagle Daisy.

Cover Reveal & Giveaway – An Hour Unspent (Shadows Over England #3) by Roseanna M. White

I am delighted to be sharing with you the cover reveal for Roseanna M. White’s newest book!

The highly anticipated story of Barclay Pearce. An Hour Unspent is Book 3 in the Shadows Over England series.

Book 1 – A Name Unknown is Rosemary’s story (see my review here)

Book 2 – A Song Unheard is Willa’s story (see my review here)

As you can see I have loved reading this fantastic series and I can’t wait to read Barclay’s story in An Hour Unspent!

Back Cover Copy

Once London’s top thief, Barclay Pearce has turned his back on his life of crime and now uses his skills for a nation at war. But not until he rescues a clockmaker’s daughter from a mugging does he begin to wonder what his future might hold.

Evelina Manning has constantly fought for independence, but she certainly never meant for it to inspire her fiancé to end the engagement and enlist in the army. When the intriguing man who saved her returns to the Manning residence to study clockwork repair with her father, she can’t help being interested. But she soon learns that nothing with Barclay Pearce is as simple as it seems.

As 1915 England plunges ever deeper into war, the work of an ingenious clockmaker may give England an unbeatable military edge—and Germany realizes it as well. Evelina’s father soon finds his whole family in danger—and it may just take a reformed thief to steal the time they need to escape it.

Here is the blurb:

Innkeeper’s daughter MINA SCOTT will do anything to escape the drudgery of her life, for there’s nothing more mundane than serving customers day after day. Every minute she can, she reads and dreams of someday becoming a real lady—and catch the eye of WILLIAM BARLOW, a frequent guest at the inn.

William is a gentleman’s son, a charming rogue but penniless. However, his bachelor uncle will soon name an heir—either him or his scheming cousin. In an effort to secure the inheritance, William gives his uncle the impression he’s married, which works until he’s invited to bring his wife for a visit.

William asks Mina to be his pretend bride, only until his uncle names an heir on Christmas Day. Mina is flattered and frustrated by the offer, for she wants a true relationship with William. Yet, she agrees. . .then wishes she hadn’t. So does William. Deceiving the old man breaks both their hearts. When the truth is finally discovered, more than just money is lost.

Can two hearts survive such a deception?

Stay tuned…coming out next September, 2018.

About the Book

The War Between the States shakes Margaret Bryant out of her comfortable upper-class life when her father enlists in the Army of the Potomac. Despite being safely ensconced above the Mason-Dixon Line in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, Margaret finds her strength tested by opposition from familiar faces and Confederate threats. Will she let a young man from a lesser station into her heart even as war rages ever nearer to the home front?

 Restless Connor Doyle sees the war as a way to escape from his family’s farm and his identity as a poor Irishman’s son. His brother, Adam, torn between duty to country and his family, enlists alongside Connor. Adam dares to hope in a future with Margaret when he begins a courtship correspondence from the war front. The two brothers make a vow to protect one another at all costs, but when faced with death and destruction from all sides—will they be able to uphold it?

 The three bloodiest days in America’s history bring these three together at Gettysburg and tragedy’s cruelty threatens to tear two hearts apart—and bring two unlikely allies together.

Cover Reveal & Giveaway – A Mother for His Family by Susanne Dietze

Today, she’s the author of several historical romances who’s seen her work on the ECPA and Publisher’s Weekly Bestseller Lists for Inspirational Fiction.

About the book:

Lady Helena Stanhope’s reputation is in tatters…and she’s lost any hope for a “respectable” ton marriage. An arranged union is the only solution. But once Helena weds formidable Scottish widower John Gordon, Lord Ardoch, and encounters his four mischievous children, she’s determined to help her new, ever-surprising family. Even if she’s sure love is too much to ask for.

All John needs is someone to mother his admittedly unruly brood. He never imagined that beautiful Lady Helena would be a woman of irresistible spirit, caring and warmth.
Or that facing down their pasts would give them so much in common. Now, as danger threatens, John will do whatever it takes to convince Helena their future together—and his love—are for always.

Dietze - Mother for his Children

Susanne shared her Inspiration behind the cover in saying: “I love marriage of convenience stories and always wanted to write one! It’s always fun for me to read a book where the wedding happens at the beginning and things progress out of order with the couple: marriage first, then love.

I was able to offer three scene suggestions for the cover, and the wedding was my first choice so I’m thrilled the amazing art department at Harlequin chose to work with it. It’s a hopeful scene, since both the hero and heroine, John and Helena, think getting married will be the answer to their problems: he needs a mother for his three kids and niece, and she needs a respectable home.

However, they learn right away that saying “I do” might provide solutions to their immediate issues, but not all of them, and forging a family can be a challenge—one that both breaks and heals their hearts!

I love looking at them in this scene and knowing they have adventures ahead that will bring them closer together!”

I simply love reading Susanne’s stories, and I am eagerly anticipating being able to dig into her newest book!

Cover Reveal & Interview with Sarah Monzon – The Esther Paradigm

Welcome, I am super excited to be teaming up with Sarah Monzon for the cover reveal of her latest book The Esther Paradigm. While this new book is a stand-alone, those who have read Sarah’s other books may notice a commonality with her debut book The Isaac Project. I’m happy to have Sarah with us today to share some inside details about The Ester Paradigm. But first, let’s take a look at this eye-catching cover!

TheEstherParadigm

Hi Sarah, I’m getting excited about your new book, “The Esther Paradigm”. This cover is gorgeous. The lovely bride and the window frame around her. It sure captures my eyes and makes me want to know what her story is about.

Trisha:  Please tell us about “The Esther Paradigm”, what is the story about?

Sarah:  So you don’t get my canned “It’s a book about people who do stuff and fall in love” answer, I’ll just give you the blurb.

Hannah Pratt dreams of starting a school for the Bedouin clan she grew up with as a missionary kid, and finally, her hopes are coming true. But shortly after she returns to the desert from her college years in the U.S., she discovers her parents have received threats from their Muslim neighbors. As the danger escalates, Hannah finds she’s in the middle of a battle no one seems to understand. She must decide to what lengths she’ll go to stay faithful to the mission to which God has called her. Even if it costs her everything.

As sheikh, Karim Al-Amir feels the weight of responsibility as the leader of his people. When a mysterious illness ravishes the clan’s flocks and threatens to destroy their centuries-old way of life, locals believe the American doctors and their daughter, his childhood friend, Hannah, are to blame. Karim must do something to keep them safe—even if the only solution can be found within marriage vows.

In a society where the line is drawn between us and them, Christianity is outlawed, and foreigners are mistrusted, will their union heal wounds or inflict the final fatal blow?

-casablanca-morocco-front-doorsTrisha:  What was your inspiration for this lovely cover?

Sarah:  Hmm…I’m not sure I had an inspiration, per se. In fact, I created three or four different mock-ups that didn’t fit for one reason or another. I only had one thing I knew I wanted, and that was a bride on the cover. This book is a stand alone, but it does have the same feel as my debut, The Isaac Project. Because they are both inspired by biblical stories, I wanted to loosely brand them together and did that through the titles and the bride. Besides that, I wanted something that would hint at the setting and the flavor of the book. Something that would immediately grab the reader and make them go, “Ooooh! I want to read that!”

 

Trisha:  This book obviously isn’t set in the US. Where exactly is the setting?the-window-bible-studies

Sarah:  Good question! And one I’m not answering. Haha. Actually, it’s never specified in the book. A bit of a mystery. The only thing I can say is that it is set in the 10/40 window–the region 10 degrees south and 40 degrees north of the equator where the majority of those un-reached by the Gospel live. This includes North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia. In a lot of these areas proselytizing and Christianity is illegal.

 

 

--princesses-wisdomTrisha:  What do you hope readers will learn when reading The Esther Paradigm?

Sarah:  I hope readers will come to it with an open heart. More than any of my books, this one wrote me more than I wrote it. There is a lot of diversity in the book. A lot of sensitive material not commonly found in a lot of Christian fiction currently on the market. I hope readers’ worldwide perspective will expand after reading the book. And, lastly, I hope readers turn the last page with a sense of enjoyment and contentment.

 

Trisha:  Thank you for sharing with us a little inside information today. One last question before you go: When can we look forward to reading The Esther Paradigm?

Sarah: You can pre-order it today for only .99 cents and it will automatically be downloaded to your kindle on November 2. =)

There wasn’t a question for this, but I wanted everyone to know that Trisha’s awesome hubby helped me out a bit with this cover. Thank you, Trisha’s hubby!!
