Cover Reveal: Saving Marilee by Annette K. Larsen

I'm sharing the cover for Annette K. Larsen's newest:
Saving Marilee
Historical Romance
Ebook, 290 Pages
May 1st 2015 by Hidden Falls Publishing



Marriage wasn’t bliss—not for Marilee. Instead of finding contentment with the handsome son of a sovereign duke, she found betrayal and neglect. And fear. A fear that finally lifts when her husband dies, freeing her from his domineering hand. But freedom alone can’t give her peace, and she must battle to regain her love for life, rebuild her happiness, and reclaim the ability to trust. When her charming neighbor intrudes on her quiet life, offering his friendship (and a dog, of all things), she must determine whether his interest is genuine, whether he is a friend or foe, and whether he deserves the fragile bit of trust she has managed to scrape together.

About Author Annette K. Larsen

AnnetteI was born in Utah, part of a crazy, fun family of nine. I grew up in Flagstaff, AZ and St. Louis, MO before striking out on my own college adventure in Virginia. I decided to try my hand at writing novels after I was married and living in Idaho. I write clean romance because it’s my favorite genre, but often difficult to find.

I have Charlotte Brontë to thank for the courage to write novels. After being bombarded with assigned reading about women who justified abandoning either their families or their principles in the name of love, I had the great fortune of reading Jane Eyre. And that was it: finally, a heroine who understood that being moral and making the right choice was hard, and sometimes it hurt, but it was still worth it. After rereading it several years later, I realized that if I wanted more books to exist with the kinds of heroines I admired, then I might as well write a few myself. My books are about women who face hard choices, who face pain and rejection and often have to face the reality of sacrificing what they want for what is right. The consequences are often difficult or unpleasant, but in the end, doing what’s right will always be worth it.

I believe there is no substitute for good writing or good chocolate. Fortunately, one often leads to the other.

  1. I loved how she threw #10 in there. Obviously it helps for the vicar to be attractive. ;)

  2. That one totally cracks me up! There's a scene where he is working in his garden and has removed his outer coat and at that time everyone wore so many layers. It was really fun because she's totally flustered and he gets embarrassed. It's a great scene. Lol!

  3. I really like that one too. It was also so true for the time period.

  4. pondering over the choices certainly entertains lol

  5. I have some family and friends who have gone through that and it's tough. I feel like the wives and families should be appreciated along with those that serve for all the sacrifices and service they both give. So thank you! I hope you enjoy this one if you pick it up!

  6. #4 - love to find out what is lurking behind the collar.

  7. I love historical romance and this sounds awesome. Enjoyed the excerpt. What a fun list. I had a hard time picking only one, so I'm going to pick 4 then 10 and 9. Blessings & Thanks to All.

  8. Lol. I am going with No. 4.

    "If you were to marry our hero William Brook, he’s tall, dark and handsome!" Any doubts??
