In my meanderings this morning, while at my good friend and romance writer Melissa Maygrove’s blog, I was surprised and thrilled to see the cover reveal of her début novel, Come Back. Goodness! It reminded me how much I’ve been out of the loop—I had forgotten all about it.
Melissa has a wonderful grasp on the art of writing, as evidenced each week with her Grammar Police Mondays, and as one of my first followers, I had to jump on the chuck wagon and help spread the good news. Take a look at the beautiful cover—its sepia hues immediately take you to the latter 1800’s, and the chemistry of the couple is hot enough to catch the cave wall on fire. Now that’s pretty dang hot.
Left behind by everyone she loves…
Rebecca Garvey had the promise of a California future dreams are made of, until the wagon train her family was traveling with left her behind. Now she’s slowly dying in the wilderness, abandoned and stripped of her self-worth. Once the shock of her desertion turns to embittered despair, she doesn’t want to be found. Then a handsome stranger challenges her convictions and changes her mind.
Headed for Texas, chased by the demons of his past…
Seth Emerson knows exactly what he wants. Working to save for a cattle ranch of his own keeps him busy and keeps his pain buried. Rescuing a stubborn woman from the hills of New Mexico Territory isn’t part of his plan—but she’s exactly what he needs.
Making greater sacrifices than either of them could foresee…
Seth and Rebecca set off on a risky journey and a quest for truth, each healing the other’s love-starved soul along the way. Will they give in to their growing attraction? Or will they honor their commitments when Seth returns Rebecca to civilization… and her betrothed?
Sounds great, doesn’t it? I already see a movie in the works. Hmm…casting call for Seth and Rebecca! Be sure to look for the book later in May.
