The cover is now far more Gothic and dramatic, and, although the style of dress isn't quite accurate (I know, I'm usually a stickler for historical accuracy), I think it matches the story perfectly.
Here it is:
"Feisty heroine, a man with secrets, mystery . . . and beautiful Cornwall!" 4* review
~ Joanna Gawn, author of The Lazuli Portals
"...very enjoyable romantic novella...a good flavour of the times..." 5* review
