This week’s featured cover is from my good friend, Juli D. Revezzo, who has just released a wonderful Victorian/Steampunk romance called Watchmaker’s Heart. Isn’t this cover delicious?
Cover Quote from Juli D. Revezzo~ “When I was poking around for ideas for the cover art to use on Watchmaker’s Heart, I ran a few ideas past my cover artist. None quite clicked until she sent me this picture in a batch of stock art. In it, I could see Phoebe’s opening sequence on the train, and the proverbial lightbulb went off.”
For Miss Phoebe Lockswell, fashionable London tea parties and balls aren’t her style. Instead, she prefers to tinker tirelessly with a clockwork diffuser she’s built from scratch. If only she can get the invention to work on command, she might earn her way out of an arranged marriage to a repugnant member of the House of Commons.
London watchmaker Mortimer Kidd was brought up hard in the arms of an infamous London gang. Despite the respectability he strives for now, the gang leader is blackmailing him. When Mortimer sees Phoebe’s diffuser, he thinks he’s found a way to buy himself out of trouble. The brash Phoebe manages to steal his heart, however, before he can purloin her invention.
Will Mortimer’s unsavory past catch up to him before he convinces Phoebe of his devotion? Worse, once Phoebe learns the truth, will she ever trust him again?
Watchmaker’s Heart is available at Amazon.
