The amazing Kim Killion of Hot Damn Designs has designed the cover for THE MOST UNSUITABLE COURTSHIP, Book 3 of the Kincaids, due to be released October 30th.

This story is late coming along. Books one and two of the Kincaids have been out for several years. Kim will also be designing new covers for books one and two, by the way. I can hardly wait to see the finished result.

Book one, THE MOST UNSUITABLE WIFE, featured Pearl Parker and her hero Drake Kincaid. Drake intends to find a wife to do his bidding, but he didn’t count on Pearl being a strong, self-sufficient woman. At the end of the book, Drake adopted Pearl’s younger half-brother Storm and half sister Sarah.

The second book, THE MOST UNSUITABLE HUSBAND, starred Sarah Kincaid and hero Nate Bartholomew. Nate was a gambler and con man who surprises himself by falling for the woman he intends to fleece. Sarah and Nate adopted three children, a girl and two boys, who were orphans found near a Memphis TN train station.

THE MOST UNSUITABLE COURTSHIP’s hero is Storm Kincaid and his heroine is Rena Dmitriev. They pursue killers across Central and North Central Texas. On their chase they encounter and adopt three orphans, a boy and two girls. Wait! I see a pattern here.

Yes, I love having children in a story. How the hero and heroine interact with children and pets reveals a lot about their character. Children add complications—as any parent knows. Children also add richness and reward. In the right circumstances, children bind a couple together.

Storm Kincaid wants justice; Rena Dmitriev wants vengeance.

When Storm’s best friend and the friend’s wife are murdered, Storm secures a temporary appointment as Federal Marshal so he can trail and capture the killers. He follows them to twenty-one year old Rena’s home, which is in flames when he arrives. She has surived by hiding while the men murdered the elderly man who was her husband in name only.  Storm intends to take her to the nearest town where she will be safe. She can identify the men who killed the person who had been like a grandfather to her and she vows to kill at least one of them. Whether or not Storm allows her to accompany him, she assures him she will go after the murderers.  She is the only person alive who can identify the evil foursome whose policy has been to leave no witnesses. Storm agrees to taker her with him. She’ll be safer with him to protect her than she would riding alone.

As a powerful and passionate love blossoms, they unite to rescue three children, fight the elements, and encounter the killers. Will their love be enough to protect them?

Join me October 30th  here and on Facebook for a launch party.

Thanks for stopping by!
