Cover Reveal | Love's Refuge by Sandra Leesmith

It's time for another cover reveal! This is the third cover designed by Lena Goldfinch that I've helped "reveal," and I just love her covers! 

Okay, so Love's Refuge ... I love the blue (it's my favorite color after all). And I think the man and woman on the front are completely striking ... mostly because they contrast each other so well. She's blond and fair and very innocent looking. He's dark and scruffy and looks like he might be a protector-type guy. The lighthouse and the stormy clouds are a really great touch as well. It just adds another dimension to the design and gives some hints as to what the story might be about. 

About the Book
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?
