The lovely Maureen Stead at Harlequin just sent me this--and my request. it's for my April release. I swear he looks just like Jake Gyllenhaal. It's not the way I described him in the art information I sent them.
But hey. Worse mistakes have been made. And she looks just right.
Overall, I'd call this a good one. The setting is lovely and reasonably close to what I asked for. And the whole effect is very romantic.
Back cover copy reads...
ONE VISIT TO HER RANCH HAD LANDED HIM IN THE DELIVERY ROOM!
All Gabe Bravo wanted was to convince Mary Hofstetter to sell him her land. But the young widow had barely told him to hightail it off her property before going into labor. Being an honorable Bravo bachelor, he stayed by her side, even after her little bundle of joy appeared.
There was no denying Gabe had declared himself permanently single—and proud of
it. But with his feelings for Mary growing deeper, he was suddenly torn: walk away
from mother and child, or do what he’d sworn he’d never do—get hitched!
This is a little too much information, actually. It totally gives away the first few chapters. Not that readers wouldn't figure out what was going on--but still, some things you want to discover for yourself as you read, right?
Then again, marketing has this wild need to actually sell books, so I totally forgive them.
