Here it is. The long-awaited (for me anyway) cover reveal of my first full length novel.
Play With My Heart: Southland Romance Book 1
Available from Soul Mate Publishing July 2014
Southern musician and closet geek Liz Baker enjoys her quiet life. While in Los Angeles helping her brother with a house project, the simple life gets complicated when British television actor Ian Clarke walks into the picture.
Ian enjoys his celebrity status in Hollywood and is determined nothing and no one will get in the way of his plans for success on the big screen. He never counted on meeting a woman like Liz, but she’s the only one who can help him with a personal problem.Forced into close quarters where priorities and cultures clash, an intense attraction catches them both by surprise. Secrets, old lovers and the paparazzi threaten their new dreams and a chance for love could be lost forever.
The cover artist, Leah Kaye Suttle, was contracted through Soul Mate and she did a wonderful job with the design. We met on Twitter after I approved the final cover and she's excited about the reveal too. The only element missing is a guitar, but we couldn't figure out how to add it without cluttering things up. The guitar is the main instrument my heroine plays, but the title is really a "play" on words. I love puns. The cover is simple, elegant, and captures the sweet, sultry, and southern feel of the story.
