I have to say it!—this cover is my favorite of the three in the series. It’s so beautiful and full of … well, love and promise!! Lol!
What do I love about this cover so much?
A LOT of things. First is the color blue, oh, so full of calm, gentleness, and kindness—the very things anyone would seek to find in true love. I love the white clothes that the models are wearing. The white symbolizes a purity that exists in their love. For goodness sakes, who wouldn’t want the love that you share with your soul mate to be pure and true? The white stands out against the darkened hue of the background, yes? Indeed, true and pure love shines even in the darkness. It’s the way God created it to be!
Also, there’s a sunset (though not visible in the cover) that illuminates the horizon and also appears on the surface of that clam, bluish water. Tell me, who wouldn’t want to ride off into the sunset with their true love? And to observe bits of that beautiful red light on the side of her face that aligns her lovely hair gives the idea that this red color that also represents love, shines through her. Of course it does! The sunset does tell that there’s something promising brewing between these two anyway, so much so that it shows in their smiles too.
Finally, notice her hand on his heart? It’s like a pledge, an allegiance—to always be there for him. Her hand stays in a way that tells that she knows she owns his heart, but at the same time, she promises to take good care of it. That’s just beautiful!
Indeed, everything about this cover tells the story of Love’s Promise. Wouldn’t you agree?

About the Book
For Monica Scott, building her late father’s house at Lake Tahoe isn’t an option—it’s a necessary distraction from confusing memories and an uncertain future. But a handsome planner working for the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) is keeping Monica from moving forward with the project. Never mind that he’s young and charming with a great sense of humor. No one is going to stop Monica from making her father’s dream—and her own—a reality.
All Greg Linsey wants is for his work to mean something. His job at TRPA gives him the opportunity to fight for the environment he loves and make a difference in his small corner of the world. But with the sophisticated Monica Scott’s arrival, his dedication is tested as never before, especially when Monica turns to his unscrupulous nemesis for assistance.
As Greg and Monica’s animosity turns into something far sweeter, can they learn to accept each other’s promises and avoid the growing danger to their lives and hearts?
