Cover Reveal and Giveaways

Good Monday, everyone. Welcome to the unveiling of the cover for my second medieval THE HEART  OF THE PHOENIX. I'm so excited that this story will be available on Sept. 3. 

To celebrate the new cover, I'm giving away goodies!! A Grand Prize and four individual winners.

The contest runs through Thursday. Everyone commenting here OR on my Facebook Author page (link below) will be entered into a drawing for a $10 Amazon Gift Card. In addition, four individual winners will be selected for a copy of my first book SILVERHAWK and a nifty gift along with it.

Here's the tagline and blurb for the new book:

Some call him a ruthless mercenary; she calls him the knight of her heart.

Lady Evelynn’s childhood hero is home—bitter, hard, tempting as sin. And haunted by secrets. A now-grown Evie offers friendship, but Sir Stephen's cruel rejection crushes her, and she resolves to forget himYet when an unexpected war throws them together, she finds love isn’t so easy to dismiss. If only the king hadn’t betrothed her to another.

Can be cruel~~~ 
Sir Stephen lives a double life while he seeks the treacherous outlaws who murdered his friends. Driven by revenge, he thinks his heart is closed to love. His childhood shadow, Lady Evie, unexpectedly challenges that belief. He rebuffs her, but he can’t forget her, although he knows she’s to wed the king's favorite. 

And Deadly~~~
When his drive for vengeance leads to Evie’s kidnapping, Stephen must choose between retribution and the love he’s denied too long. Surely King John will see reason.
Convict the murderers; convince the king. Simple. Until a startling revelation threatens everything.
