It's Here, It's Here!

Take a look at my new cover! Isn't it gorgeous? Thank you to Mina Carter, the artist! The story is a New Year's romantic suspense novella that will be out in December. It is the 3rd novella involving my fictional bodyguard company, the International Protective Network!

And just in case you're interested, here's the unofficial blurb:

Take-charge bodyguard Colin Munro believes working for the International Protective Network will be the perfect occupation for him. Unfortunately, his trial assignment is protecting a woman who has no intention of blindly following orders. Aye, he’ll bring the bonnie lass in line because there’s no way he’ll allow her to ruin his chance of securing his dream job.

Physically and emotionally scarred during her stint as a U.S. soldier, Joanna Grainger wants nothing more than to enjoy life. New Year's Eve in Edinburgh marks the beginning of her transformation. But when she witnesses a crime no one believes occurred, her plans come to a screeching halt. To make matters worse, her sexy but headstrong bodyguard has no compassion for her or the victim.

As danger hunts them during one of the busiest time of the year, Joanna must convince Colin she's a worthy partner. But first, can she convince herself?

So, yesterday I mentioned I'd be having a contest for people who leave me a birthday message or a message on the Get Lost in a Story Blog (for the "What's up with the crew?" post!) Since I got the okay to share my cover, I'll extend the contest through Saturday (OU vs. TX for any college football fans!) and I'll open it to anyone who comments here about the cover an/or story too!


  1. Great idea Lexi!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I guess we stopped them with CH...mine was on the 3rd...Libras...what do they say about us? It must be all good...:)
    Love the cover and blurb....Mina is a talented artist...and yes you too! Love that Colin is lurking in the back...confidant but looks mischevious/devilish..

    Sending chocolates/favourite drink your way,

  2. My comment: this cover is amazing. It's so compelling and - well, you were blessed by the cover gods for sure. I really am impressed, Alexa. I'd say you got a very happy birthday present.

  7. Very eye-catching cover, Lexi. Especially the fireworks. Hint of what's inside? :-) Congrats!

  8. So pretty! I'm loving the fireworks. :) Although...what exactly is her hair doing? :x

  9. Thanks, Janece! I love the fireworks, too.

    Thanks, Pat! Yep, it's a little explosive with the two of them!

    Thanks, Julie! I figured that she was wearing a hood with fur on the outer edge since it's a winter story.

  10. Paisley, YOU are the winner of the $10 Amazon gift card for commenting on the blog! Congratulations!

    Thank you to everyone who commented!
