My incredibly talented friend, Author Rachel Rossano, is joining us today to reveal the cover of her upcoming novel Honor. She is the author of sweet medieval romances that are rich with detail and wonderful, memorable characters.
The Earl of Dentin excels in his position as Securer of the Realm. But the king’s order to pluck an orphaned child from a loving home unsettles Dentin. When a dark-eyed woman challenges his honor regarding the mission, Dentin finds himself unable to justify his actions or get her out of his mind. Something about her lack of fear intrigues him.
Lady Elsa Reeve attempts to avoid the marriage of convenience her brother and mother demand of her. She understands the need to pay off her brother’s massive debt. She only wants her family to consider her wishes in the process.
As Elsa becomes further entangled in a snare of her brother’s creating, only one man defends her. But can she trust Dentin, her unlikely champion, and his motives? With a murderer on the loose, Elsa’s fate in jeopardy, and a traitor plotting against the king, Dentin finds his priorities shifting in an unexpected direction.
The book comes out Feb. 23, but you can preorder it on Amazon.

I for one can’t wait to read it. And I love the Honor cover every bit as much as I do the cover of the first book in the series, Duty.
Duty: a novel of Rhynan, had me hooked from the first line right to the last.
I seriously loved her opening lines. And it just got better and better.
The story centers around two strong, duty-bound characters.
Brielle Solarius takes her duty to her village to protect them, keep them safe from her evil cousin, Lord Wisten, to heart. She’ll do anything she can to ensure their well-being, even marry a stranger who claims to be an Earl sent to her by the king.
Tomas Dyrease, the newly made Earl of Irvaine and the village of Wisenvale, is a favorite with the king and feels a duty to do his bidding. When the king insists Tomas marry the cousin of a Lord Wisten, he obeys, even though Brielle is nothing like what he expected.
Bound to each other through their vows and sense of duty, the story will keep you turning pages to see what happens next.
Rachel did a fantastic job of making the characters come to life as well as creating settings in the story that seem vividly real. If you haven’t read any of her books before, read Duty now, so you’ll be ready for Honor next month.
