I finally finished and revealed the cover for the New Revised Edition of Heartless. The interior is getting a new edit and formatting; I'm almost done with that. While the story didn't change much, I did fix a few issues (improper use of the word handicap, for example).



For any of you who already purchased the eBook, you'll be able to get the updated book free. I'm going to replace the old one so all you'll have to do is download the new one from Smashwords or Amazon, depending on where you got it...at least, I think that's how it works. I'm not sure how it all works for B&N purchases.

:O)

So Heartless is finally back on the virtual shelves. On Amazon, at least. It will be available on the other retail sites in February 2013. Paperback will be out... in a week or so, if I don't get too distracted. lol

You can get it here:
US ($2.99): http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001IZZ2RC
UK (£1.92): http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B001IZZ2RC

So what's different?

I cleaned up the language a bit, though not entirely. (Still no f-bombs, just FYI.) Still "closed door" romance. Other than the language, I tweaked some scenes, added a few, deleted a few... that kind of thing. The formatting is GORGEOUS, and all thanx to Linda Boulanger of Tell-Tale Book Cover Designs. She's the BEST! (http://telltalebookcovers.weebly.com)

If anyone has any questions, I'm happy to answer them. Thanx for taking the time to look! ♥

Thanx! It only took me a year to get it just right. lol


Marisa Adams (marisa_adams) | 36 comments Did you do the cover yourself or did Tell-Tale do it for you?

Tell-Tale did the interior formatting, I did the cover. I design book covers as a side business: http://www.anauthorsart.com

Oh my, Heartless has received three 5-star reviews on Amazon (US) in the past day. I am beyond thrilled that readers are responding so well to this title! ♥

I don't know why I didn't post the blurb. I like it much better than the blurb I had previously.

A dark stranger....
Finding herself abandoned after the death of her father, Leandra Harcourt takes the greatest risk of her life. She accepts the marriage proposal of a complete stranger, the Duke of Derringer—a man the world calls Lord Heartless.

A heartless proposal....
A desperate girl with no prospects seems the perfect solution to Derringer's most recent problem: marry before his 30th birthday to gain his rightful inheritance, though marriage is the last thing he needs. The need to find his missing cousin takes priority over any silly marriage and he quickly abandons his new bride in the wreck of his family estate.

A perfect love....
Two people were never more suited for each other than the duke and his wife, but will they discover it before it's too late? With an assassin dogging his heels and a suitor wooing his wife, love will not have the luxury of time.

And at one point today, Heartless was #56 on Amazon's Hot New Releases in Regency Romance list! SQUEE!! (Then it dropped to #63 and now it's #62. Still SQUEE!!) lol


Marisa Adams (marisa_adams) | 36 comments Okay...I've never really been a fan of Regency romance, but your blurb actually caught my attention. I just bought it. :)

There are two excerpts from the revised edition of Heartless up on my blog. I posted them as Sweet Saturday Samples.

This link http://jaimeygrant.blogspot.com/searc... should pull up all of my Sweet Sat Samples, which at this point is only two and both are Heartless. :O)
