Osiyo~ 

Welcome to Pen of the Dreamer, where I welcome guest authors with their beautiful covers on UnCover Monthly!

Dean (4 mos) with coat hook-night light I made him for Christmas 2017

I also enjoy sharing a little of my life once in a while to let you know more about me. This weekend I was so fortunate to meet my new little nephew, Dean Lewis! He’s just over 4 months old and lives several hundred miles from us, so this was my first meeting with the little hottie (to-be) and he absolutely stole my heart. I can’t express how exciting it was to spend two days with little monkey butte! He seems to always have a ready smile, no matter who or what it’s for. My husband and I made this cute coat hook/night light for him. His nursery is done in sailor/ocean theme and he seems to like this new piece! (I do take orders for these, contact me at fancifulallure@gmail.com.)

Lots of pics were taken, though not nearly enough! LOL Say hello to Dean!

So, I’ve changed the days I post this feature to the second Monday of each month, instead of the first Monday. Go HERE to get the application, read carefully, then hurry and submit your covers! Remember, the early bird gets the prime slots. 😀

For now, enjoy more awesome cover art by the incredible authors and artists who make them possible for you to gaze upon each month. It would be great if you leave a comment letting everyone know what you think about them and maybe even check out a few author links to meet those behind the books. Or just say hi. Don’t forget to tell your friends to stop by so they can appreciate some greatness, or get in on the fun, too!

This feature is only to highlight the authors and artists, instead of the actual book (though if you see one you want to buy I’m sure the authors won’t mind 😆 ). Enjoy this months’ covers to ogle and explore. If there is one provided, you can follow the artist links by clicking on the name, if there’s an artist link provided, to learn more about the amazing creators of these beautiful covers.

  • Normally I wouldn’t post with so few covers to share but, due to promises to these authors, I am sharing just two lovely covers this month. Please enjoy! Send your covers to the link below to see your books here!

Reporter Caitlin MacPhee lives in two worlds. Celebrating her 200th birthday, she has finally found her true mate. Following her mother’s advice to throw sexy human detective Raven O’Brien to the floor and have her way with him is not her idea of romance.

Caitlin has never revealed to Raven her true nature or the depth of her desire for him or his blood. Conflict over her continued involvement in a series of bizarre murders leads to passionate declarations.

Raven is intrigued, not afraid when he learns of the Dhampir, but finding out about Caitlin doesn’t prevent him from worrying about her when the actions of a vindictive reporter places Caitlin in the crosshairs of a serial killer.

Will Raven and Caitlin be able to survive a kill as well as their differences to build a life together?

Heat Level: 4

Publisher: Dragonblade Publishing

1375 A.D. – When Sir Christopher “Kit” Emory’s beloved mother falls ill, he decides to seek the help of someone he met briefly at the royal court years ago—Lady Alys de Montfort, a renowned healer despite her young age. While traveling to her home at Kinwick Castle, Kit is accosted by a band of highwayman, who beat and rob him, leaving him to die. Fortunately, an escort party comes across him and Lady Alys insists they take the stranger home so she can use her skill in the healing arts to save his life.

The man awakens and has no memory of his identity, but Alys believes he might be Kit Emory, a young man she’d met once when she was a young girl. Kit comforted her when the queen died and Alys never forgot his kindness to her. Alys does what she can to jog Kit’s memory, even as she struggles with her growing attraction to him, knowing Kit was betrothed and must now be wed. Kit also finds his desire deepening for Alys, but he doesn’t know his own name, much less if he has a wife or family. Until he recalls who he is, he refuses to commit his heart to Alys.

Once Kit regains his memory and realizes he is free to pursue Alys, their road to love is anything but smooth.

Join Kit and Alys as they overcome events that continue to tear them apart and threaten the love they have for one another.

*Each book in the Knights of Honor series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Calisa Rhose presents~Uncover Monthly #June2017 #mfrwauthor #coverlove

Osiyo~

Welcome one and all!

As many of you may know, I began renovating UCM in January with new and exciting improvements. I had planned to get everything back up and working by February 1, but life decided that would not happen. Last summer I tore three tendons in my right shoulder and it took until February to get surgery approved through Worker’s Compensation. But, on March 24th I finally got the surgery and now I’m back in physical therapy, and feeling better each day. It still hurts to do a lot and I have more PT and a long recovery road ahead (so I’ve been told), but I’m able to work on the pc enough to get something accomplished when I need to, even if it takes a few days. :lol; So on this lovely June day, I welcome my guest authors with their beautiful covers to the new and improved UnCover Monthly!

In the meantime, go HERE to get the application, then hurry and submit your covers for 2017! Remember, the early bird gets the earliest slots. 😀

For now, enjoy more awesome cover art by the incredible authors, publishers and artists who make them possible for you to gaze upon each month.

Grad student and New Orleans ghost tour operator Julie Deveaux is used to believing in things she cannot see. Although with her family history, spirits lurking beyond French Quarter galleries seem more plausible than true love or soul mates.

With romantic entanglements the last thing on her mind, Julie would do anything to complete her thesis research and exonerate infamous murderess Sophia Durocher in the process. Anything, that is, except further harass Sophia’s already spotlight-weary family.

However, a collision in Jackson Square puts her in the path of infuriatingly handsome fellow history-buff Griffin, and Julie is unable to ignore her attraction. After they accidentally exchange copies of a rare book, Julie gets insights into Griffin, revealing someone who grapples with the same big questions as she does. But when Griffin turns out to be the grandson of her thesis subject, Julie walks a dangerous line. He could be the key to all of the answers she seeks. But solving Sophie Durocher’s mystery could mean losing the one man who makes her rethink her belief in soul mates.

1351 A.D. – Betrothed from a young age, Merryn Mantel and Geoffrey de Montfort are that rare couple—a love match. They spend five long years apart when Geoffrey leaves England to fight against the French. Geoffrey returns after the English victory at Poitiers, and he and Merryn wed. They spend one blissful night consummating their love, looking forward to a promising future together.

Yet Geoffrey vanishes the next day. Merryn is left lonely and confused as she clings to the hope that one day her husband will come back to her. Geoffrey finally returns almost seven years later. This new Geoffrey is a stranger to Merryn. He refuses to reveal where he has been and why he stayed away from the woman he loved.

Will her husband’s silence create a rift too large to heal, or can Geoffrey and Merryn recapture the love they once shared?

Join Geoffrey and Merryn as they fight for the love both have held in their hearts despite their years apart.
