A cover, a book trailer and a release date for BOSS OVERBOARD!

First, the cover:

bossoverboardAnd the blurb:

An all expenses paid, trans-Atlantic cruise has romance written all over it…unless you’re the poor sap who has to inspect the toilets and time the cafeteria lines. As if secret-shopping her company’s failing cruise ship isn’t bad enough, Lydia Johnson is forced to bring along a “top talent” new hire as her assistant. With a heart barely healed from her ex-fiancé’s deceit, she’s in no mood to train a man who might cheat her out of an overdue promotion.

Paul Thomas may be new to J.P. Theriot Enterprises, but he certainly knows his way around cruise ships. The Cajun charmer also isn’t shy about pursuing his desires, including his wary, but oh-so-sexy-when-she lets-her-hair-down manager. He’s shared more about himself with Lydia than any other woman…except who he really is–J.P. Theriot.

And the book trailer:

Finally, the release date:

October 22, 2014!!

The cover reminds me a little of Meljean Brook’s book, The Iron Duke: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0042JSOTY/ The cruise ship on which the story takes place is certainly suffering from its fair share of problems and weather does play into the story. However, seeing as how my eye goes to the mighty fine bare male chest and abs, the inclement weather danger is temporarily forgotten. The woman is a pretty good representation of Lydia.

Just messin’ around with Photoshop instead of working…

I’m anxiously awaiting my cover for Boss Overboard. Edits are substantially done–just one more proofing round. It’s supposed to be released this month but I don’t have the exact date yet.

In the meantime, I made a graphic for fun. Meet Lydia and Paul, our heroine and hero:


Don’t look too closely at it. As a matter of fact, you should probably squint a little, take off your glasses if you wear them and are near-sighted, smear a little Vaseline on your computer screen. OK, maybe not the Vaseline.
