I’m pleased to be able to share the cover of my next book with you today. McCLINTOCK’S RELUCTANT BRIDE is finally complete. Well, I say that but it still has to make the rounds of my critique partners, beta readers, editor, formatter, and be uploaded to the various sites.

The official Facebook Launch Party will be Thursday, July 16 from 7:00 to 10:00 pm EST. In the meantime, here’s the cover.

The girl on the cover represents Nettie Sue Clayton. She is a shy, sweet teacher with a beautiful singing voice. She’s the younger sister of Stella Clayton from O’NEILL’S TEXAS BRIDE.  Nettie and her family have just moved to McClintock Falls in the Texas Hill Country to be near Stella and her new husband Finn O’Neill.

Nettie’s father has taken over the barbershop in McClintock Falls and the family is elated he has a safe indoor job which doesn’t tax his lungs. After thirty years as a coal miner, the man deserves a break. Nettie loves their new home, the nicest in which the family has ever lived. In addition, she is all set to take over as teacher in the local school. She believes her life is almost perfect.

Josh McClintock is a charming rogue. By day he works hard on his family’s ranch. By weekend, he plays hard with his drinking buddies and carouses with the women who flock around him. His father, Austin McClintock, has just purchased the ranch adjoining theirs at a foreclosure and Josh reckons that place that soon will belong to him. He figures his life is about perfect.

Yes, friends, I turn these characters' lives upside down. Bwahahaha. 

I hope you'll join me on July 16th from 7:00 pm until 10:00 pm EST for the Facebook Launch Party.
