Hold onto your hats, everyone...Julie Lessman is back with her highly anticipated new series with A Hope Undaunted, sassy cover and all ;-)

Revell have a stunning lineup once again from historical romance to contemporary suspense. I love a number of these covers and am so looking forward to Julie, Lynette and Sarah's books as well as the others.

I'd love to know your thoughts on covers, storylines, which ones appeal to you and more!

Her boyfriend Jake fits all of her criteria for a husband--good-looking, well-connected, wealthy, and head-over-heels in love with her. But when she is forced to spend the summer of 1929 with Luke McGee, the bane of her childhood existence, Katie comes face to face with a choice.

Will she follow her well-laid plans to marry Jake? Or will she fall for the man she swore to despise forever?

Deborah said...

well I want everything. I've never read anything by Leisha Kelley. Have you?

The cover of Julie's book, the girl reminds me of Jane Krawkowki from 30 Rock. I really like the cover of Making Waves...except for the girl's expression. But the rest of the cover looks beautiful.

Rel said...

I've read Leisha Kelly's Tahn series which she wrote as LA Kelly - a fantasy/medieval series which I really enjoyed.

Julie Lessman said...

Whoo-hoo, Rel, what a lineup, eh??? I can't wait to get my hands on these books. Love all the covers, but especially like the titles and covers for Making Waves and A Memory Between Us, but then I tend to be a historical romance freak ... :)

Thanks for the "highly anticipated" remark on Undaunted. All I know is that it's "highly anticipated" for me because it's my favorite book so far ... ;)


Lori (sugarandgrits) said...

YAY! I can't wait for October/November!

I love Julie's and Sharon's covers, but the others are really great, too. :D

Renee (SteelerGirl83) said...

Hahaha the girl does look a little sick on the cover of Making Waves...maybe seasick? :-P It's still a pretty cover though! Every single one of these books are getting added to my wishlist! Thank you for sharing them!

XOXO~ Renee

Sarah Sundin said...

I may be biased, but Revell rocks! I can't wait to read all of these. How many more hours can I carve from my day?

Ann Shorey said...

Wow, they all sound wonderful. I love all of these authors. Good to see a new book from Leisha Kelly--I enjoy the way she tells stories.

Laura Frantz said...

Rel, You always delight with these book covers:) All are beautiful and I'm particularly taken with Sarah's! And the expression on the heroine's face for Making Waves is just priceless:) Bless you for these!

Amy said...

I'm dying to read Julie's of course. I'm not a huge fan of faces on covers to be honest, but we'll see how it all works out!

Kim said...

Once again...making me drool! Everything looks so exciting!!

Rebecca Herman said...
