The Big Reveal

What do you get when you mix The Last of the Mohicans with The Patriot? A rough and tumble romantic adventure in the backwoods of South Carolina . . . and it's headed your direction next October. But for now I've been given the green light to reveal the cover for THE CAPTIVE HEART.

Here's a blurb:

Proper English governess Eleanor Morgan flees to the colonies to escape the wrath of an angry duke. When the Charles Town family she’s to work for never arrives to collect her from the dock, she is forced to settle for the only reputable choice remaining to her—marriage to a man she’s never met. 

Trapper and tracker Samuel Heath is a hardened survivor used to getting his own way by brain or by brawn, and he’s determined to find a mother for his young daughter. But finding a wife proves to be impossible. No upstanding woman wants to marry a murderer.

And here's the cover:

So . . . look mildly entertaining? Or is it more like oh-my-flipping-stars-can't-wait-to-read-this type of story? If you find yourself in the second category, I've got a proposition for you. Oh, stop it. Not that kind of proposition. I assure you this is legal.

I'm putting together a street team of excited readers who want to spread the word about The Captive Heart. What exactly does that mean? Great question. 

Here's what you'd need to do:

-   Post a review on Amazon or Goodreads or both

-   Purchase one copy of the book on the first sales day (Oct. 1) to give to a friend

-   Tweet/Facebook/social media of your choice an announcement of the release in October.

And here's what you'd get in return:

-   A free, signed copy of the book

-   A thank you gift package filled with goodies for little ol’ you

-   My undying gratitude

Easy peasy. If you're interested, email me at I'll take the first 50 rabid Griep fans that sign up, but don't wait too long. I'll be posting this on all my social media haunts.
