Cover reveal

THE PROTECTOR has a brand-new cover. I loved the cover that graced the first edition, but now it is time to reveal the gorgeous new cover created by Jared Rackler.

But first, the blurb:

Soren Buchanan feels trapped by his controlling father James, a businessman who’s clever at masking illegal financial dealings on the tropical island of Guam. When James finally asks too much of him, Soren flees to the FBI for help.

Until Soren’s information pans out, the Bureau can’t protect him—so the task falls to Mason Ward, security specialist and former US Army Ranger.

Protecting Soren should be easy enough, but Soren is young, seductive, and not entirely forthcoming about the trouble following him. Mason must fight his growing attraction to the young man as well as thugs sent to bring Soren Buchanan home … dead or alive.

Now, without further ado: 
 

I love what Jared did with the information I gave him. I’d asked for a tropical feel since Guam is a unique and exotic location. And I asked for red hair. If there was to be a cover model, I didn’t want him to be so “in your face,” and he really, really needed to have red hair. 

Jared managed to imbue the cover with a tropical, Pacific Islander vibe, a hint of mystery and a lot of red. The model is handsome and fit and if you look way closely, there’s a hint of stubble on his chin. I think. Maybe not.

I’m not sure if Jared saw my old cover, but I love that the lettering for THE PROTECTOR is yellow. It feels like a nod to its first edition cover, which was very yellow.

I have a feeling by now you guys love my new cover as much as I do and are desperate to know when you can get your e-copy of THE PROTECTOR’s second edition.

The Sea Sprite

I’ve been posting beach pics in preparation for THE PROTECTOR’s rerelease with MLR Press on 07.28. Guam is a lovely location and makes for an exotic setting, but a lot of stuff also happens on The Sea Sprite, modeled here by a Kadey-Krogen 58.

Pivotal scenes take place in that galley and salon.

I cannot believe how long it’s been. My last post was a while back.

Well, here I am with good news. THE PROTECTOR has found a new home with MLR Press and will rerelease on July 28, 2017.

I have a fantastic new cover that I am in love with for the second edition. Thanks to cover artist Jared Rackler who took my thoughts on covers I enjoyed and my wish for something tropical and created something unique for THE PROTECTOR. 

I love, love, love my new cover and think you will, too. Come back on July 18 to see for yourself.
