I promised this earlier in the week, but with the attack in Boston I decided to wait a few days. Here she is — the cover of my debut novel, No Strings Attached.
I have to thank Deborah at Tugboat Designs. She has been amazing to work with, and her rates are very reasonable. (Check her out at http://www.tugboatdesign.net/)
She finished this cover long before I even had a title, and waited patiently while I debated different options.
Remember my struggles over a title? If not, you can relive them here. http://lilybishop.com/2013/04/14/big-title-reveal-today/
So when is the big release date, you ask? Soon, baby, soon. I’ve finished the last edits and have two final readers scouring for pesky typos. It should be clean by this point, but I will be mortified if I get dinged in reviews for stupid errors.
Here’s a peek at the (virtual) back of the book:
Laura Todd attends a conference in Las Vegas where she presents a workshop on marketing. Caught up in the glitz and glitter, Laura has a spicy weekend with Fox Thornton, a sexy consultant. Since he lives in Atlanta and she lives in Miami, there is no reason they will ever see each other again, and they both agree to a “No-Strings-Attached” affair.
Back home in Miami, she learns that her boss has been fired, and her temporary hook-up is now in charge of her office on a temporary basis. Sparks fly as she realizes that everyone in the office is under suspicion for embezzlement, including her.
Fox is drawn to Laura before he realizes that she works for a company that his stepfather wants to acquire. When he is sent to Miami to investigate mismanagement, all of the evidence points to Laura and her former boss. It doesn’t matter how much he desires her–he won’t tolerate theft. Under increasing pressure to make a decision on the purchase, he brings in a team of auditors to follow the money. All signs point to Laura’s involvement in the missing funds.
When Fox learns she has a flight to the Bahamas, he’ll do anything to stop her from leaving the country with the money, even if it means trapping her on his yacht. Which is the real Laura—the sexy, smart woman he spent time with in Las Vegas, or the vixen advancing her career by sleeping her way to the top?
I can’t wait for the moment that others can share in Fox and Laura’s story, and meet this wonderful couple. These jet-setters will travel from Vegas to Miami, to Atlanta, then the Bahamas. Just remember, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas.
