Love's Refuge by Sandra Leesmith Cover Reveal

Love’s Refuge will be released November 2013. Visit Seasons of Humility that month for more information about the book’s release and the blog tour.

Skye Larsen loves her peaceful life on Leeza Island in Puget Sound – the tranquility, the friendly neighbors, and especially the safety from big-city dangers. So when cruel pranks start to escalate and changes threaten to overtake the island, Skye is determined to fight for her haven. The presence of a handsome vacationer and the unexpected feelings he awakens can’t distract her from her goal.
Danny Fraser doesn’t realize how desperately he needs a rest until he meets Skye. By allowing him to glimpse her simple way of life, she helps him reorient his priorities – and steals his heart in the process. But his work and home in Seattle keep Skye at bay.
An isolated island girl with painful memories. A dedicated city boy with a wild past. What will it cost for them both to find a refuge from their storms?

Now for the reveal................

I think it fits quite beautifully with the cover of Love's Miracles!

I saw the cover before reading the book's description. My first thoughts:

I've heard that Love's Refuge is a sweeter story than Love's Miracles, and I can feel that from the cover! I especially like the lighthouses in the background. It gives the expectation of a "lighter" story. ;) It seems more peaceful with all the blues, which, of course, makes me automatically like it more. The couple on the cover of Love's Refuge look peaceful and relaxed. The man on the cover of Love's Miracles looks more tense, which fit perfectly with the story. Of course, they are both beautiful covers!

*After* reading the description, I took another look, and I noticed the darker clouds mixed in, which hints at the threats and pain mentioned in the description. The man(Danny) on the cover looks to be the protector, the rock, in the story.

I'm excited to read it!

  1. Love your thoughts on the cover, Bluerose! All of it - so true! This is a sweeter story overall, the setting is more tranquil, and the hero is the one reaching out to help more (vs. the heroine reaching out to help the hero in Love's Miracles). :) I think it's awesome that all of that got conveyed through the cover!

    Thank you for participating in the cover reveal! :)
