Cover Info

I received word from Hilary about my cover copy. I have cover copy!!

FRONT COVER:

Her body. Her heart. And all her love...
WHAT A SCOUNDREL WANTS
CARRIE LOFTY

"Readers will delight in this inventive foray into a legendary place."
--Susan Wiggs, New York Times Bestselling Author

BACK COVER:

In this dazzling, original tale, Carrie Lofty imagines a new chapter in the well-loved Robin Hood fable. Meet Robin's rakish nephew, Will Scarlet, a man whose talents with the sword and the ladies are legendary--until his desire for one woman changes everything...

A Passionate Love...
A swordsman for the Sheriff of Nottingham, Will Scarlet has finally emerged from his famous uncle's shadow. But when he's unwittingly drawn into a bloody battle between the Sheriff and a nobleman, it's impossible to tell friend from foe. A woman's screams lead Will straight into the carnage to save her--but the ravishing young lady is not the helpless maid she appears to be...

An Amorous Lady...
Meg of Keyworth lost her sight to illness years ago, but that hasn't stopped her mission to save her imprisoned sister, who's been arrested by none other than Will Scarlet. Meg wants to hate Will for betraying her family, but he sparks heated desire in her heart--a desire that only he can satisfy. Meg is lovely and loving, and bedding her is sensual bliss. To please her in every way is what he wants most...for Will know he will cherish her heart forever...

*sniffs*

Replace "lovely and loving" with "ballbusting, flamehtrowing witch" and it's just about perfect--sensual bliss, heated desire and all. All I really wanted there was a mention of Robin Hood lore + blind heroine. That's the stuff that sets this tale apart from everybody else.

Freaky, freaky, freaky how real this is becoming. One day I hope to be a jaded old crank who shuffles this stuff into a to-do pile, but not now. It's too much fun.

Love, let me sleep tonight on you couch.
I remember the smell of the fabric
Of your simple city dress.
Oh... that was so real.
"So Real" by Jeff Buckley
