I’ve had the cover of Dare To Risk All for quite a while and was waiting for my release date before revealing it. Well, I’ve had my release date for a few weeks now, and somehow, with my preoccupation with my vacation photos and getting my current project ready to submit, I’ve overlooked Dare To Risk All’s cover reveal. So here it is: I absolutely love it. The cover artist at The Wild Rose Press did a great job incorporating the elements I wanted included. And the tone of the cover suits the storyline. Besides that, it’s cute!
Unlike my previous two books, which included some family drama as part of the romance, Dare To Risk All is strictly romance. It has no subplots and fewer secondary characters. Now, that’s not saying I don’t torture my characters just a bit. Of course I do. I love my wounded heroes, and poor Ben carries a lot of baggage. Sweet Tessa has a few extra bags to lug around too. It’s a challenge for either of them to open up and fall in love. Do they dare risk it?
Blurb: Tessa Caldwell’s carefully structured world is thrown into chaos when the handsome stranger she had an uncharacteristic fling with reappears in her life. Ben not only gets the promotion she thought was hers, but is also intent on resuming their physical relationship. Although Tessa’s rational mind insists on a professional association, both her heart and her traitorous body have other ideas. Can her sensible nature possibly win against such temptation?
Memories of the petite blonde with large, blue eyes have haunted Ben Dunham for months. When he transfers to her branch, he anticipates picking up where they left off. Reality doesn’t match memory when the cool and collected lady wants no part of him. If he intends to pursue Tessa, he has to earn her trust. The problem is, Ben carries a dark and dangerous secret. How does he get Tessa to trust him when he can’t trust himself?
Dare To Risk All will be available in both e-book and paperback format on March 11th. (One month!!) Pre-order is now available on Amazon.com. Click here. As soon as other buy links come available, I’ll list them here on my blog as well as on my Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/Joyce.M.Holmes
