Thanks for coming by today to see the new cover for Autumn Reflections ~ Northern Lights Series Book 2! As I wrote Autumn's story, Grayson took over my heart and I'm sure you can see why! He's an old soul who loves his momma and would do anything for her, even at the tender age of seven. When it came time to make the cover I knew it had to feature Grayson. I asked Carrie Butler of Forward Authority to design the cover, because she really gets me and what my books are about. My stories are about finding faith and love in the lives of real, everyday kind of people. What Carrie artfully choose a background that reflects the region the books take place in, which is Northern Minnesota. With a beautiful photo from Dennis O'Hara, of Northern Images, for the background, she was able to perfectly reflect the beauty of this area during autumn.
Autumn Reflections takes place in Cloquet Minnesota, which is about 20 miles southwest of Duluth. My husband grew up in Cloquet and over the past 14 years of our life together I have fallen in love with his city. I have been saving this town for a special story, knowing it would reveal itself with time. I'm excited for the reader to experience one of my favorite places through the eyes of Autumn, Grayson and Kade. Thanks for taking a peek at my cover and don't forget to sign up for a gift bag of Autumn's favorite scent from Bath and Body Works!
Autumn, Grayson and Kade will be available for your Kindle on June 29.
1 Corinthians 13:8: Love never fails.
Grayson Hanson likes to pretend he’s a superhero, sent to earth to fight off the bad guys. In reality, he’s a seven-year-old boy who wears those same superheroes on his leg braces, and fights off bullies at school. His mother, Dr. Autumn Hanson, will do anything to protect her son, including leaving her prestigious position as one of Duluth’s top orthopedic surgeons. Hoping for a fresh start, she moves Grayson to Cloquet, Minnesota and opens her own clinic. Steadfast in her desire for a new life, Autumn agrees to be interviewed for a feature article in the local paper. Kade Franco is a well respected journalist, who at forty-two has had his own share of love’s regrets. As the city’s most eligible bachelor, Kade can have any woman he wants, but he’s waiting for his meant-to-be. Where he doesn’t expect to find her is in the beautiful hazel eyes of the newest doctor in town. Autumn finds Kade Franco’s sexy chocolatey brown eyes and strong lumberjack physique to be her kryptonite. She’s spent the last seven years building a wall around her heart, but fears it isn’t strong enough to withstand a man of steel determined to show her love never fails.
I heard a knock and looked up. Phoenix stood at the door with a man close behind her. “Dr. Hanson, Kade is here to see you.” She stepped aside and I stood up, my eyes locking with the very chocolate brown ones of Kade Franco.
“Thank you, Phoenix.” She left and I stuck my hand out across the desk, “Nice to meet you Mr. Franco.”
He shook my hand firmly, not too hard, but no wimpy jello hand either. “Just call me Kade, Dr. Hanson. Thank you for meeting with me this afternoon.”
I smiled against my will. This man certainly was not twenty two, pimply faced or eager. He was lumberjack tall, trim, and had legs that went on forever. His barely there wire rims did nothing to conceal his long black lashes. He had neatly trimmed scruff surrounding his melt me into a puddle smile, and curly brown hair I’d like to wrap my fingers in. Whoa, sister, back up the boat and stop staring like an idiot. “Please, call me Autumn. Thank you for offering to do a story about my clinic.” I gushed.
Good God woman, take it down a notch. You come face-to-face with a good looking guy and you can’t rub two brain cells together. Sit. He’s sitting already; sit your butt down in the chair....
