A new cover for my forthcoming historical romance


I'm already delighted with my cover for 'Flavia's Secret,' my historical romance set in 206AD in Roman Britain.

Now I'm delighted again - by the new cover for my forthcoming historical romance, 'A Secret Treasure'. Thank you, Jinger, and Siren-BookStrand!

'A Secret Treasure,' is a perfect holiday read, a 'sweet' historical romance set on the Greek island of Rhodes.

Here's the blurb:

With war threatening, even on the idyllic island of Rhodes, how can Eve protect her family while loving a potential enemy?

Shy, warm-hearted Eve meets Julio on the gorgeous island of Rhodes and is smitten, but the handsome, energetic Italian is a policeman, one of the Fascist oppressors of her adopted homeland. Eve dreads she will have to choose between Julio, whom she loves, and the safety of her English family.

The Greek island of Rhodes: luxurious and hot, beloved haunt of the Sun God, steeped in the mysteries of the past. In the late 1930s, in the gathering storm-clouds of war, it is a dangerous place to fall in love.When pretty, passionate Eve Burnett meets the darkly intriguing Julio Falcone she is torn. As a man, Julio is powerfully attractive. As a policeman, he is bound to be a Fascist. Her brother David, who is missing, is connected to the Greek partisans who wish to liberate Rhodes from their Italian overlords.Now, as David appears at their parents' house soon after Julio makes Eve's acquaintance, Eve is compelled to hide her brother and a mysterious gold statuette. The Fascists are looking for him and this secret treasure. Soon, Eve realizes that she may be forced to choose between the man she loves and the ultimate safety of her family.

I feel Jinger has perfectly captured the 'feel' of the period and the location. What do you think, please?
