Cover Reveal: Bayou Bound ~ Book 2 in the Fleur de Lis series

It’s not just the crisp air,
or the leaves changing
green to gold, red, and orange.

It’s not just the shortening days
or longer nights
allowing me to rest longer.

It’s the coming-forth
the birthing, of Bayou Bound ~ Book 2 in the Fleur de Lis series from The Wild Rose Press.

Yes, Branna and James are there, however, Biloxi Dutrey and Nick Trahan take the center stage.

Now for the BIG REVEAL:

perf5.000x8.000.inddBiloxi Dutrey grounds her jet-setting photography career and returns to Mississippi when she learns her family home, Fleur De Lis, is headed for financial ruin. She plans to save it by scooping up the job of Keeper. But that means breaking tradition, and her family isn’t cooperating.

Veterinarian Nick Trahan is new in town and wants folks to stop matchmaking. He won’t settle for just a pretty face. He wants the perfect woman, one who believes in family and commitment—the exact opposite of his parents.

Nick rescues Biloxi during a raging storm, but the squall is tame compared to the tempest between them. Soon they experience the backlash from the long-standing feud between their families. If Biloxi surrenders her dreams for Fleur de Lis and toes the line with tradition, will she also be forced to give up on “forever love” due to the hate their families still harbor?

I hope you’ll share this with your family and friends.

I’ll keep you posted on the release date. When launch time comes, get ready to party and for lots of giveaways.

Happy Reading!

      Thank you! I think so, too. And, it will be really interesting so see what happens with the next book, Back to the Bayou. My publisher has the bar raised really high. :-)
