Cover reveal for The Antique Love

My next novel, The Antique Love, is due out on September 4th.  Here’s the cover, complete with antique gold font, designed by the fabulous Charlotte Volnek:

And if you’d like a little taster, here’s the blurb:

One rainy day in London, Wyoming man Kurt Bold walks into an antique shop off the King’s Road and straight into the dreams of its owner, Penny Rosas.  Lively, spirited and imaginative, Penny takes this handsome stranger for a romantic cowboy straight from the pages of a book.   Kurt certainly looks every inch the hero…but he soon brings Penny’s dreams to earth with a thump.  His job is in the City, in the logical world of finance—and as far as Kurt is concerned, romance is just for dreamers.  Events in his childhood have shown him just how destructive love can be.  Now he’s looking for a wife, right enough, but what he wants is a marriage based on logic and rational decisions.  Kurt treats Penny like he would his kid sister, but when he hires her to help refurbish his beautiful Victorian house near Richmond Park, it’s not long before he starts to realise it’s not just his home she’s breathing life into.  The logical heart he has guarded so carefully all these years is opening up to new emotions, in a most disturbing way…

Can’t wait ’til September!

  1. What a fabulous cover, Helena, you must be so happy! Charlotte really did a fantastic job. I love the blurb of The Antique Love, and can’t wait to read the book.


    1. Thanks, Glynis! It’s so hard to sum up the themes of a book in a cover that’s only really going to be seen as a thumnail. Charlotte has done a really excellent job. She is great to work with :)


  2. I agree, Helena. Charlotte is a wizard when it comes to designing book covers. I gave her a few ideas for the cover for Coda to Murder and she delivered exactly what I had in mind only better!! Love the premise of your upcoming release. What a combination a “cowboy” and an English interior decorator. Anxious to read it!


    1. Your cover is great JQ! I didn’t realise it was Charlotte who designed it. What a fabulous job!
      It was great for me to have an American editor for this book. Jessica stopped my “cowboy” from saying any Britishisms! Now he sounds totally American and I’m really happy with his voice :)
