Cover Reveal: Her Endearing Young Charms

May I present the evocative new cover for my new release Her Endearing Young Charms, book one of the "A Lady of Many Charms" series.

Miss Merribelle Hales spent years imbuing a silver locket with man-attracting charms. On her way to her first London Season, her locket is stolen--along with a kiss--by a highwayman. Her only clue to his identity: a pair of intense eyes. This vexes her. Without her best charm, how will she ever be able to compete on the Marriage Mart? It would be so much easier if she didn't have to compete at all.

Lord Alexander Rochester has worries aplenty. His ailing father's estates are woefully in debt, so he must seek a wealthy wife. His courtship of Miss Hales goes terribly awry with a simple kiss that leads to his slapped face and an accusation of theft.

It's a case of mistaken identity. Alexander knows and fears the real culprit. He faces the loss of his father, his estate and Miss Hales--whom he's loved since childhood--by the hands of the Handkiss Highwayman.

Her Endearing Young Charms is sure to please fans of Mary Robinette Kowal and Georgette Heyer.

Woo hoo! Nice cover. I confess I don't read romance, but that made me stop, and I'd pick up to read the opening page. Maybe I could get it and pretend I was getting it for my wife!?
