Cover Reveal: The Blacksmith Prince  
Remember back in December when we talked about our plans for 2017? Remember I mentioned a fairy tale romance which back then was still called "Fisherman"?

Well, the final title we have settled on is "The Blacksmith Prince" and today you all get a first look at the beautiful cover designed by the wonderful Lady Tiferet:

And here's the blurb:

17th century Perigord is a county of sun-drenched villages and dark forests, languid rivers and moonlit lakes. It is a corner of France teeming with spirits, dryads and nymphs, and like everywhere else, witches are burned at the stake here.

Born with the second sight, young fisherman Jehan wants nothing but to keep his head down, work hard, and stay out of trouble. Which works well enough until a suspicious string of bad luck befalls the village smith and his wife. Their adoptive son Giraud is everybody’s dashing darling, who behind his sooty smile and swashbuckling manners has buried a painful connection to the supernatural himself. Fearing that some evil is afoot, Giraud turns to the only other man in town who knows about the hidden world around them - Jehan.

Before long, they are embroiled in a quest involving brigands, witches and noble fey, while their friendship and attraction gradually shifts into something deeper. If they manage to survive ancient feuds and everyday prejudice, they might even have a chance to forge a Happily Ever After all of their own...

Release date is July 14th, but you can already pre-order the book here:

Once the actual release rolls around, you will - as always - be able to get a paperback edition too.

What a beautiful cover! I look forward to the release date.

Interesting bit: in Arabic, Jehan is a woman's name^_~

So happy you like it! We had a blast with Lady Tif working on it, and I think it shows.

And about 'Jehan', it's the historical Occitan version of what will eventually become 'Jean'. Funny how names crop up with different uses in different cultures. Thanks for mentioning!
