Erica here: I can FINALLY post my new cover art! I got the mock-up weeks ago, and it's been killing me not to be able to share it!
His Prairie Sweetheart is my first Love Inspired Historical, and it releases May 1st.
Here's a bit about the book:
A Home for Her Heart
After being jilted at the altar, Southern belle Savannah Cox seeks a fresh start out West and accepts a teaching position in Minnesota. But between her students' lack of English, the rough surroundings and sheriff Elias Parker's doubts and distrust, Savannah's unprepared for both the job and the climate. However, she's determined to prove she can handle anything her new town throws her way.
Elias gives it a week—or less—before the pretty schoolteacher packs her dainty dresses and hightails it back home. But no matter how many mishaps he has to rescue her from, Savannah doesn't give up. Yet the real test is to come—a brutal blizzard that could finally drive her away, taking his heart with her…
Aren't they gorgeous?
Some other pictures I sent along to help the cover designers were these:
I love this coat, and Yay! They put our hero Elias in it!
This is the actor, David Conrad, who was the template for my hero. I loved his casual, hands in pockets stance in this one, and the cover designer caught that persona perfectly!
I found this photograph on Pinterest when I searched for blond wedding updo. The moment I saw her face, I knew this was Savannah. I love that the hair in the cover and the hair in the picture match!
And this is the schoolhouse I envisioned. I am thrilled that the one on the book cover matches perfectly.
I am so excited for this book to release. I had such fun writing about Elias and Savannah, incorporating my research into Norwegian Americans and the Children's Blizzard. I hope readers like their story as much as I do.
His Prairie Sweetheart is available for pre-order HERE. And you can look for it May 1st wherever fine fiction is sold!
