My next cover

As you can imagine, a category romance writer holds her breath when she opens a box of new books. This will be her first glimpse of her new cover. Will it look anything like the images she held in her imagination during that long, arduous process of bringing the story to life?

But , happily, this is mostly not the case. Actually, since Harlequin Romance launched its latest covers, they've been outstanding. Opening that box has been a thrill!!

And discovering the cover for NEEDED: HER MR. RIGHT, book #2 in the Secrets We Keep trilogy (which I've written in conjunction with Liz Fielding and Jackie Braun) was a very happy moment.

Very soon, I'll post an excerpt.
