The Heart Surgeon's Secret Son--we've got cover!

Making a mad dash by home before heading to Birmingham for the weekend for the Southern Magic Reader's Luncheon, I found a box of goodies from London. Copies of my 2nd book from Harlequin Mills & Boon!! It's always exciting to get books, but when I receive the hardback copies, it's also the first time I see the cover.

Getting a cover is kind of like going on a blind date. You're always hoping for the best, but more worried that you're going to get dog ugly and no personality to boot. I love Jane Millionaire's cover. The Doctor's Pregnancy Bombshell's cover fits the book to a T and the heroine's smile makes me think of Cameron Diaz (who I adore in movies!). This third one is a gorgeous blond guy so no complaints. Well...maybe he's a bit young appearing to be a renowned heart surgeon and to have a fifteen year old son, but hey, this is fantasy. :) Actually, I'm quite pleased as he's a blond. I'd actually worried that if the cover included a hero, he'd be dark headed and Daniel is definitely a blond (and yes in case you are wondering I was inspired by Daniel Craig--remember, I blogged about this some time back and posted a couple sexy pics of the new James Bond.). I'm told it's rare to get a blond on the cover. Blond so works for me...after all, there is Daniel Craig, Matthew McConaughey, David Beckham, the list goes on and on... :)Dare I mention that my dearest pal and roommate this weekend labeled my hero as "Doogie"? Nah, better not mention that.

He does NOT look like Doogie! He looks young, hot and athletic, things which Doogie could only dream of. :)

Okay, so maybe he is the only heart surgeon around who's not old enough to shave...just kidding! How cool to see your book in hardback!

Very cool! He's much cuter than Doogie.
