And this, folks, is why you pay a professional designer. I can knock out an okay-looking cover, but this….this is everything I wanted it to be.
If any of you are from Dublin, you know well that’s Howth in the foreground – and Howth features prominently in this tale.
This cover is pure romance, and once again, Colleen at Mystique Book Designs has knocked it out of the park. I can’t wait to put it all together and put it out there! In the meantime…here’s another little taste of Amy and Michael’s story:
She looked up from her wineglass, thoroughly embarrassed when she realized he’d been talking and she was daydreaming.
He gave her a knowing grin. “I was just remarking that it’s a shame we’ve got a full agenda tomorrow. The inn is at the edge of the Burren – it’s a national park – and we could rent bicycles just down the road and tour through it.”
“That sounds beautiful,” she said. She looked down at her wine glass. “I wish I had more than two days left.”
Michael reached over, tipping her chin up. “We’ll just make the most of the time you have, then.”
His fingers lingered on her skin, his thumb feathering her jawline before he moved his hand back, letting his fingers graze her neck. Amy’s mouth parted and the room suddenly seemed to close down around them until they were the only ones in it.
“So what’s it to be, luv?” he asked. “Can I take you for a walk and kiss you under the stars? Or are you interested in dessert?
She reached up, twining her fingers with his. “You are the most romantic man I’ve ever met,” she said. “How are you even real?”
He cocked a brow. “Eh. I saw it in a movie once. Girls are supposed to like that sort of thing, you know.”
“Is that so?” she asked dryly.
“And it’s far less expensive than buying you three more glasses of wine.”
“You don’t say.”
He laid his napkin down on top of his plate and stood, extending a hand down to her.
“Come on, then,” he said. “I’ve got plans for you.”
Someday in Dublin is nearly here….trust me – this one’s all about anticipation…
