Cover Reveal: Duty to Protect

Taking another step forward today. A couple weeks ago, I spent a lot of time looking for cover art. I found this site: http://www.selfpubbookcovers.com/ and looked through a bunch of their covers there. I ended up saving more than a dozen to my favorites. Then, I took a couple more days and narrowed those down to 4. Which I worked up with the title and everything and sent them to my CP for a second opinion. Because, Lord knows, I can’t make a decision for myself(okay, I could, but it would probably take twice as long and I’d keep second guessing myself). Was also having a self-doubt crisis, which she talked me through. She liked the one I was leaning toward and we discussed the title change and all that. I went back and looked at the other covers and realized all 4 I had kept were by the same artist. Must have been a reason those were the ones I liked. 🙂

Duty to Protect

cover art by Yvonne Less(Diverse Pixel)

A duty to protect and serve. A love he would die for.

Garren Alexander has been a detective with the Gilbert Police Department for almost a decade, but he’s been haunted by the shadows of his past for the last fifteen years. He turned to women, whiskey, and work to drown out those shadows, but they keep catching up to him. When his little sister, Connie, turns up missing, they threaten to drown him.

Lisa Giles has been best friends with Connie Alexander since rooming together in college. She knew her friend’s brother in passing but her sudden disappearance has now thrown them together. After being let down by more than one man in her life, Lisa isn’t quick to trust. But, trusting Garren may be the only way to find her friend again.

As more people around him fall victim to the vengeance of his past mistakes, Garren has to use all the skills he possesses to keep anyone else from dying, and protect the woman who may finally be able to help him fight his demons.

It’s up on goodreads now. I’m planning to have it up on Amazon & other platforms by 4/22.
