Love Delivered Releasing December 21, 2011



I'm so thrilled to announce that LOVE DELIVERED, a short contemporary romance, will release from The Wild Rose Press on December 21st. Cover artist Kim Mendoza once again designed a cover that showcases the characters and the story. Thanks, Kim!

Here's a blurb about the story:
Bianca McClain has worked for years to achieve her dream job in New York City. After her grandmother passes away, she finds herself returning to the small town she grew up in to ready her house for sale. The slow, friendly pace of the town and its citizens, especially Pete the mailman, appeal to her—but there’s no way she’s giving up everything she’s accomplished in New York.

Born and raised in Centreville, MD, Pete Schaeffer loves his small town mail carrier job and can’t imagine leaving for any reason—or anyone—so he's dumbfounded by his intense attraction to Bianca, a woman with a fast-paced life in the big city.

Pete and Bianca soon find themselves lost in each other’s arms. When the summer ends, they will have big decisions to make. Will the small-town guy and big-city girl find common ground and lasting love, or will their differences drive them apart?

What a gorgeous cover! A retired postal worker, I have a soft spot for mail carriers, too. :-)

Liz,
Thanks so much for checking out the cover. Congrats on being a retired mail carrier. Not an easy job. My grandfather was a mailman and I have fond memories of him in his uniform. He told such great stories about his job, too. Hope you have lots of great memories. :)
