Cover Candy, Edition 14


Happy Tuesday, all! So I just came across some all new cover pretties from Bethany House and since many of them weren't included in the last post (but the synopsis was), I thought I'd share them since some of you were expressing interest in certain novels of these upcoming novels.

Find new books from Jen Turano, Karen Witemeyer plus more!


Synopsis: In the shadow of the nation's capital, Kate Livingston holds a respectable position as a government statistician when she encounters a rival from her past, the insufferable Trevor McDonough. A Harvard-trained physician, Trevor never showed the tiniest flicker of interest in Kate, and she's bewildered at the way he suddenly seeks her out. Surprising even herself, Kate agrees to Trevor's entirely unexpected and risky proposal to work side-by-side with him in his quest to rid the world of tuberculosis, a contagious and deadly disease.

As Kate begins to unlock the mysteries of Trevor's past, she realizes there is much more to him than she could have imagined. His hidden depths may fascinate her, but his most closely guarded secrets and a shadowy enemy lurking in the background carry a serious threat to their future.

When the truth of the past comes out, threatening to destroy everything they hold dear, how will Trevor and Kate ever overcome all that stands in their way?

Synopsis: When Amelia Wagner takes over the running of her father's newspaper in Granite Springs, Arizona, she vows to carry on the paper's commitment to reporting only the truth. But Amelia soon learns that even the truth can have consequences. Her father's revealing articles about Great Western Investment

Company's business methods have caught the notice of the wrong person, and pressure mounts for Amelia to retract her father's statements.

Determined to find the truth, Amelia goes through her father's notes and begins to interview members of the community. She can't seem to shake Benjamin Stone, a Great Western employee who's been assigned to keep tabs on her for the good of the company.

The more Ben and Amelia learn, the more Amelia's father's claims appear to be accurate. In fact, it's probably worse than he realized. Even Ben is beginning to wonder if he's become a pawn in the workings of a corrupt empire. But Great Western isn't about to stand for a female reporter and one of their own men bringing down their lucrative schemes. Working against time, and never knowing what danger lurks around the next corner, Ben and Amelia set out to reveal all they've discovered before Great Western silences them for good.

Synopsis: It is 1814 and the British have taken hold of Mackinac Island and its fort, forcing American residents to swear an oath of loyalty to the British crown in order to retain their land. Pierre Durant is a voyageur--a fur trader who left his family home to find freedom and adventure. He's been gone five years and when he returns, his family's farm is at the mercy of the British invaders.

Torn between the life he's grown used to and guilt over leaving his brother and mother, he's drawn back into the loyalist fight against the British--and into a relationship with Angelique Labelle, a beautiful local girl who's been befriended by the daughter of the British commander. As tensions mount and the threat of violence increases, both Angelique and Pierre must decide where their loyalties rest, how far they will go to find freedom, and how much they will risk to find love.

Synopsis: When asked what he does for a living, Commander Mark Bishop is deliberately low-key: "I'm in the navy."

But commanding the ballistic missile submarine USS Nevada, keeping its crew trained and focused during 90-day submerged patrols, and being prepared to launch weapons on valid presidential orders, carries a burden of command like few other jobs in the military. Mark Bishop is a man who accepts that responsibility, and carries it well. And at a time when tensions are escalating in the Pacific Rim, the navy is glad to have him.

Mark wants someone to come home to after sea patrols. The woman he has in mind is young, pretty, and very smart. She's a civilian, but she understands life in the navy. And he has a strong sense that life with her would never be boring. But she may be too deep in her work to see the potential in a relationship with him.

Gina Gray would love to be married. She has always envisioned her life that way. But a breakup she didn't see coming has her focusing all her attention on what she does best--ocean science research. She's on the cusp of a breakthrough, and she needs Mark Bishop's perspective and help. Because what she's told the navy she's figured out is only the beginning. If she's right, submarine warfare is about to enter a new and dangerous chapter...

Synopsis: Alice Chesterfield is a woman pursued. Having survived an attack that left her scarred and her father dead, she is never free from the fear and memories of the man who is responsible.

Texas seems to be an answer to Alice's prayers, and when she has the opportunity to relocate to a ranch near Dallas, a new man captures Alice's attention. Robert Barnett is unlike any man Alice has ever known: He doesn't seem to mind the scar she bears, nor does he worry about the obstacles that stand in their way--including Jessica Atherton, the woman he's supposed to marry.

But there are storm clouds gathering, and Alice's peaceful sanctuary is threatened when she learns the truth about her father's dishonest dealings and the mother she thought was dead. Disillusioned, Alice must learn to place her trust in God as she seeks a measure of peace for her future...and for her heart.

Synopsis: Two years ago, Zayne Beckett's departure from New York City to meet up with his almost-fiance caused Agatha Watson no small amount of grief. So he is the last person she wanted to stumble upon in her travels as a reporter with the New York Tribune. Looking worse for the wear, he clearly needs to be taken in hand and taken back East to his family. Even though she's over him, Agatha can't help feeling sorry for him and realizes she'll have to be the one to get the stubborn man back home.

Zayne has no desire to be taken anywhere. Content to sit and mope over his recent bad fortune and the desertion of his not-quite-fiance, he's prepared to drag his heels all the way back to New York. That is, until he and Agatha find themselves slipping back into the strangely enjoyable bickering and bantering of their old friendship.

It isn't until they arrive in New York City that Zayne realizes Agatha's determined nose for news has earned her a few enemies. When his attempts to repay her for helping him go sadly awry, Agatha proves herself just as stubborn as Zayne. Everyone else may think them a match, but nothing could be further from the truth--until Agatha finds herself in real trouble. Have these two stubborn, too-smart-for-their-own-good people been meant for each other all along?

Synopsis: When Nicole Renard returns home to Galveston from an eastern finishing school, she's stunned to find her father in ill health. Though she loves him, he's only ever focused on what she's not. Not male. Not married. Not able to run their family business, Renard Shipping.

Vowing to secure a suitable marriage partner, Nicole sets out with the Renard family's greatest treasure: a dagger personally gifted to Nicole's father by the pirate Jean Lafitte. Many believe the legend that the dagger is the source of all Renard Shipping's good fortune, though Nicole is sure her father's work ethic and honorable business practices are the keys to their success. Before she can board the steamer to New Orleans, Nicole finds her father's rivals--the Jenkins brothers--on either side of the gangplank, ready to grab her and steal the dagger. Quickly, she decides to instead travel north, to Liberty, Texas, where she can decide what to do next.

Darius Thornton needs a secretary--someone to help him get his notes in order. Ever since the boiler explosion aboard the Louisiana, Darius has been a man obsessed. He will do anything to stop even one more steamship disaster. The pretty young socialite who applies for the job baffles him with her knowledge of mathematics and steamships. He decides to take a risk and hire her, but he's determined her attractive face and fancy clothes won't distract him from his important research.

The job offer comes at exactly the right time for Nicole. With what Darius is paying her, she'll be able to afford passage to New Orleans in mere weeks. But Mr. Thornton is so reclusive, so distant, so unusual. He can create complex scientific equations but can't remember to comb his hair. And his experiments are growing more and more dangerous. Still, there are undeniable sparks of attraction between them. But Nicole is leaving soon, and if she marries, it must be to a man who can manage a shipping empire. Darius certainly doesn't fit that description. And the Jenkins brothers have not given up on kidnapping Nicole and seizing the Lafitte dagger for themselves.

  2. Hi lovely one! I have the whole bunch of Bethany's up on my blog but from the ones you've posted, I'd probably say Elizabeth's is my favourite :)

    You?

    1. I am thrilled with your line-up, Rel! They are so awesome - and even more, I saw them the same time you posted it. Normally I don't see the post until hours afterwards. :)

      I adore Elizabeth's! But of course, I was always super eager to read hers also. It looks and sounds as classy as her other novels and I'd expect nothing less from her talented pen. :)

      Karen's is also cute as is Jen's.

  3. I'm especially eager for Full Steam Ahead and With Every Breath, and Truth Be Told and Captured by Love should also be good! (Can you tell I'm a historical romance fan?? Hehe ;)) Thanks for sharing these - Bethany House has such lovely covers!

    1. Indeed we can tell where your reader heart lies, Amber - love that! :)

      Karen always has super fun plots and cover art. Hope fans enjoy this one. Carol's sounds and looks good (one of these days I am reading her books!) and of course I am in love with Elizabeth's! Her novels are my one weakness in historical fiction. She's got talent.

      Bethany House has another great line-up. As always. :)

    1. Her expression IS priceless - we were just talking about that on Rel's blog. It looks a bit "off" or something but that's what makes her stand out. :)

  6. Wow. I am so behind...college does that to a girl. :P Hadn't seen any of these yet, but love a lot of them! So many favorite authors, or ones I've positive things about! Let me see here. Well, I'm prolly most excited about Karen's new book - she remains one of my favorite Christian-romance/light-and-easy read authors. Elizabeth Camden's is absolutely stunning and I love it. Carol Cox...well, I really fell in love with her one book cover, was it "Love in Disguise"? The one with the blue hat. LOVE that one. Haven't read it yet. But this one is nice! Jen Turano's just looks like fun...definitely on my to-read list. And back to Karen's... <3<3<3 Love it. She's such a great fun author. :) There! Off to see what else I read and didn't comment on yet...

    1. I know some of what you're feeling, Charity - my cousin is in college and let me tell ya', that girl is STRESSED. However, let me remind both of you, "stressed" spelled backwards is desserts... so think only happy things. ;)

      Karen's are always adorbs - I think they *have* to be to match her cute plots. Carol's is nice, the dark plums and tones go well together and it's made me all too aware that again I need to read her novels (I have last two. I think). Always LOVE Elizabeth's; each one is prettier than the last - same as her stories. Jen's designs are also nice; they're cute and somehow subtly full of personality.

      Yay! I'm so glad you are liking Karen's; I didn't love her last novel, however I'm thinking I may try another one by her at some point.

      Loved all your other comments! Anytime you can, you're most welcome. :)

  7. Oh my!! I love most if not all of them! Whew, I think my favorite would have to be Undetected or With Every Breath. All the blurbs promise so much. Cannot wait!

    1. I liked Dee's also, Rosie. It follows the same "pattern" as Full Disclosure only I think this one is cooler - plus I'm thrilled Dee is going back to military romances. :)

      With Every Breath may be my favorite in this bunch; it's just... gorgeous! Of course, any new novel by Elizabeth catches my eye.

      Right there with you - bring on 2014. :)

  8. A new book from Elizabeth Camden! *squeal* The cover is only so-so, though (although the colors are nice) I LOVE the cover for Full Steam Ahead, though. it looks hilarious. Really love the cover for A Match of Wits, too. Especially the color and the lady's dress.

    1. I know right, Hayden!? Elizabeth is the one historical author I never pass up. Love her work. :) Karen's is a big winner in this thread; it does have the element of fun, which certainly makes the entertainment value all the more fun. Jen's is also popular - and of course, as always, is fun, and I agree; the dress color makes the design "pop."

  9. Lovely book covers! I love the cover for Jen Turano's next book! I can't wait to finally see Agatha and Zayne's story play out! :)
    And the cover for With Every Breath is just stunning!

    1. Bethany House always has awesome book designs, Amy and this group is no different!

      Jen gets such fun concepts and of course, my favorite is Elizabeth's - that lady is one talented author! :)
