Here is the beautiful cover for my September release, The Reluctant Bride,
written under my Beverley Eikli name. Last December I had the enormous good fortune and excitement of winning Choc-Lit’s Search for an Australian Star. Since then my publisher has been absolutely wonderful about keeping me in the loop regarding so many aspects of book’s progress towards publication and today I received this absolutely gorgeous cover.
I’ve mentioned a little about it in my previous post (Her Gilded Prison by Beverley Oakley) and I’ll just add a bit more. This story, which is set in 1813, has had a long and interesting life. It won a Romance Writers of Australia competition, was rewritten three times as the plot took on multiple twists and turns.
Finally, the battle between conflicting loyalties of a half French bride and the returning war hero whom she marries in order to keep the child she’s to bear her dead betrothed lover will come to a head in September with its release.
A lot of murky water keeps these two from entirely trusting each other and it’s only a when lives hang in the balance that my bride risks her own to redeem herself in the eyes of the noble man she’s reluctantly grown to love.
