I must deeply apologize, my dears! Normally, I share with you the cover for my upcoming books as soon as I receive them. But it appears with all the excitement of the holidays and the busyness of winter that I completely forgot to share the cover of my April release, The Husband Campaign, here on Nineteenteen!
Today I rectify that. I’m sure some of you have already spotted this cover around the web. The Husband Campaign is the final installment of my Master Matchmakers series, where downstairs servants play matchmaker for upstairs aristocracy. I think the artists did a great job connecting Lord Hascot’s love of horses with quieter pursuits of his bride, Lady Amelia. There is something wistful in the way Lady Amelia regards him that fits with the theme perfectly.
The book is due out April 1, and you can be sure we’ll have a celebration here that week. In the meantime, as I have traditionally done, let me give you a few hints as to who was in my mind when I sent information to the Art Department for this cover.
The role model for my hero has acted in a period piece at various points of the compass, but his talent lately appears dwarfed in a royal way. My heroine was an actress who set out to catch a thief before her own brush with royalty.
Anyone want to guess?
