New Cover Reveal and update on Her Dakota Man

I'm having so much fun being a writer!!  I get to talk to my characters in my head all day AND see Purple Girl Design's brilliant artwork when my ebook covers are created. 

But first things first.  I'm about half way through revisions for HER DAKOTA MAN, book 1 of Dakota Hearts.  I expect to have the book out for copy editing by the end of the week and then will be able to report on a release day.  I've been getting all kinds of questions on release days.  More on that soon I promise.

I already revealed the cover for HER DAKOTA MAN.  And while this is out of order for the series, I just can't wait to show you the cover for DAKOTA HEAT!!!!  I LOVE it.  DAKOTA HEAT is book 3 of Dakota Hearts and will be available some time in September or October.  In the meantime, let me know what you think of the cover!!!

Hotshot Sam McKinnon was always leaving town, chasing another fire under his own hometown became vulnerable during the fire season after a big flood left debris and devastation in its path.  He didn't expect out of town dispatcher, Summer Bigelow, to catch his eye or his heart.  It hadn't been Summer's idea to move from Providence to South Dakota, but when a serial murderer suddenly turns his attention on Summer, her boss insists she leave town. She's dealt with high tension, life or death situations many times in her job.
It isn’t until she meets Sam McKinnon and falls for the sexy hotshot that she really begins to know fear.  The fear of losing someone she loves.

So what do you think?  I love this cover!  Actually, I love this story too.  But I tend to fall in love with all my heroes and I definitely fell in love with the McKinnon's.  I hope you will too!

And since I know it's not fair that I showed you book 3 before book 2, I will post the cover for book 2 as soon as I get the final from Purple Girl Design.  So make sure you check back soon!

DAKOTA HEARTS - New Ebook Series 2013

New series debut, DAKOTA HEARTS.  I'm really excited about this new series, the sexy heroes and the strong women who love them. 

Check out the new cover for Book 1 of Dakota Hearts, HER DAKOTA MAN!

Everyone knows that the Dakotas didn’t get the name Badlands for nothing.  Harsh weather and rough living are a way of life.  But single dad, Logan McKinnon, had seen more than his share of bad times after the death of his wife a year ago.  The last thing he needs is Poppy Erickson, an old flame and his late wife’s best friend, showing up unannounced to help after devastating floods nearly washed away their hometown.  With no place to stay in town, he has no choice but to offer her a bed at his house.  But can he live under the same roof with a woman he’d once loved passionately without feeling he’s betraying his late wife?

Poppy Erickson had spent the year wondering how all their lives might have been different after hearing the death bed confession of her childhood friend.  She’d left South Dakota years ago because she couldn’t bear to watch the man she loved loving another woman.  But now she knows the truth.  She’ll keep the promise she made to a friend, but will Logan understand when he learns the truth?  More important, can they again recapture the passion that had been between them all those years ago?
