Today I received my cover for the December release of A Family Arrangement from Harlequin's Love Inspired Historical line! I couldn't be happier with the image. The art team captured my characters to perfection and the setting couldn't be better!
I know I'm not supposed to play favorites, but this story is at the top of my list. Abram and Charlotte are two of my favorite characters and if any two people should fall in love, it's these two. I cheered them on to the final kiss and shed a few tears along the way.
Here's the back cover copy:
Abram Cooper has ten months to turn rough Minnesota country into a vibrant town, or his sister-in-law will take his three sons back to Iowa with his blessing. Until then, Charlotte Lee has agreed to keep house and help raise his children as part of their bargain. But can the single father fulfill Charlotte's requirements in time to make sure that she and his boys don't leave—and take his heart with them?
Charlotte is convinced that the wilderness is no place to raise her nephews. But as she watches the community slowly develop, she sees that Abram just might be able to make it blossom. With three little matchmakers bringing her and Abram together, Little Falls could become not just a flourishing town, but the perfect home for their patchwork family.
This story is inspired by the men and women who founded my hometown in the mid-1850's. I fictionalized their story, but the heart of their passion for Little Falls, Minnesota is still within the pages. This is the first in the Little Falls Legacy series. The next story is set in 1858 and the hero and heroine are rival hotel owners. I'm in the midst of writing that manuscript now and I'm having so much fun!
Without further ado, here's the cover for A Family Arrangement:
*Sigh* Charlotte is exactly as I pictured her! And those adorable boys? They melt my heart on the page and on the cover. They are Robert (on the left), Martin in his father's arms, and little George with his back to us. The handsome hero is Abram Cooper--be still my heart. I loved creating his character and I can't wait for you to meet him in the story.
