Fortunate Wager cover!

.

Hot from the very talented paintbrush of David Young comes the cover for Fortunate Wager, my newest Newmarket Regency. I am quite amazingly pleased with it!

If you have read Fair Deception, you will remember Caroline Fortune, who played a walk-on part. Being a girl of decided opinions, she made it very clear to me that she was destined for far greater things - and so Fortunate Wager was born.

As you can see from David's lovely cover, Caroline frequently sneaks out at dawn in her brother's clothes to exercise his horses. It's only when she finds injured nobles that the problems start...

October or November this year, I think, Liz.

Elizabeth Hanbury said...

Oh, that's a fabulous cover, Jan!

Jan Jones said...

Thank you, Elizabeth. I'm really pleased with it. (Can you tell?)

Debs said...

Love the cover, and the book sounds great.

Kate Hardy said...

Jan, that's a gorgoeus cover. Delighted for you!

Jan Jones said...

Thanks, Debs and thank you, Kate. Glad it's not just me that likes my cover!

Cat Marsters/Kate Johnson said...

Gorgeous, Jan, and I'm looking forward to reading about Caroline. I thought she had more than a walk-on part, and I'm not surprised she demanded her own book!

Jan Jones said...

Thanks, K8. Yup, Caro is one determined heroine.

Susie Vereker said...

Congratulations, Jan. It's striking and, from what you say, apt.

Julie Cohen said...

Oh, nice one! The cover fairies have always been very nice to you.

Jan Jones said...

Thank you, Susie. 'Tis indeed apt.

I have very nice cover fairies indeed, Julie. I think it comes from leaving them out little pots of glitter and sequins to play with overnight back in my pre-school-playgroup days.

Nice cover art. :o)

Jan, I added you to my blog roll. Hope that's ok, it just saves me a few more clicks.

Jan Jones said...

Thanks, Diane. And I'm honoured to be on your blogroll!

Nicola Slade said...

And it's not purple, either!
Looking good, Jan and that's a nice horse.

Jan Jones said...

Isn't she nice, Nicky? And a lot better behaved than at the beginning of the book, I can tell you.

Don't know yet what colour the spine and the back of the book are going to be. Suppose I ought to find out before I start making bookmarks...
