#CoverLove Cover Reveal: Accidental Valentine Anthology from @RoanePublishing #Romance #Contemporary
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner… If you have been to a department store since Christmas, you know this, since all the pink and red candies and stuffed animals are already lining the shelves. And with the arrival of this auspicious holiday of lovers, Roane Publishing is putting out another of their wildly popular romance anthologies, ACCIDENTAL VALENTINE. The release day for this one is February 13, 2015, but I have the fabulous cover to share with you all today! Woot!
Most of you know I am a freak for a good cover, and I have to say, I REALLY do like this one. Of course, it is hard to not love a cover you designed yourself. Yup, this is another of my forays into the “art” world.
Would LOVE to know what you think about it. Does it grab you? What does it say to you? If you saw it on the shelf at the book or grocery store, would you pick it up and read the back? Inquiring minds want to know. Believe it or not, your feedback helps me tremendously. Knowing what appeals and doesn’t is a huge step toward making better covers each and every time.
But, enough about me… Let’s get to the cover and details, eh? First, the cover:
A Romance Anthology
By Various Authors
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Short Stories)
Publisher: Roane Publishing

Description: Finding love on Valentine’s Day is the happiest of accidents.
Guiding Hearts by Claire Gillian
Is a lonely woman’s GPS sentient, or is her subconscious taking her by the hand to help heal a scarred heart?
When Jemma Ernst’s GPS malfunctions and sends her to the home of handsome and engaging Gabriel Nash, she writes it off as a fluke. But she can’t seem to reprogram him out of her thoughts, nor her GPS.
Better Latte Than Never by Katrina Sizemore
Single and cold on Valentine’s Day, Hailey Merritt is not looking forward to working all day at the coffee shop while everyone around her is cheery with romance and she’s stuck trying to figure out her next step in life.
But when a special bouquet arrives from a secret admirer, she decides to reserve judgment on the holiday and find whomever sent her the flowers.
Maybe Cupid has a plan to make this her favorite Valentine’s Day ever.
Dream Architect by S.L. Hughson
Taylor and Sons Custom Design keeps ASHLIN TAYLOR at arm’s length from her dream job. If only she were a son, she could follow her architectural dream. In the Taylor creed, girls get married and boys have careers. DYLAN CUTRIGHT focuses on finishing college and landing an architectural engineering job in a large firm. Minus emotional ties.
After an accidental encounter, their initial attraction is amplified when Dylan comes to work at her family’s firm. Unlike her family, Dylan encourages Ashlin to pursue her dream by enrolling in college. He even argues her case with Uncle Mike. His support confuses Ashlin because when she moves closer to him, he rebuffs her for reasons she can only speculate about.
Valentine’s Day might be the perfect opportunity for Ashlin to make him notice her. They are working together – alone – on the most romantic day of the year. Dylan builds her dreams of a career, but will he ever lower his walls and become more than just the man IN her dreams?
One Hot Angel by Jaylee Austin
Oblivious to Tiffany Jenkins, in three short weeks her life will end—unless she makes the perfect choice. Will she chose revenge and expose her ex-husband? Or chose love and surrender her heart to the only man who can save her?
Rock My Bones by Wendy Sparrow
Jared has been eyeing the sexy mural painter from inside the museum’s paleontology lab, but she’s way out of his league. He can’t let her paint that obviously misplaced fern, though…even if it means initiating contact.
You could call her a paleontology groupie, but Shay Meyers is interested in a more modern specimen. An adult male Homo Sapien to be exact—one who needs to be dragged out of his lab for a practical course in mating rituals. If she’s lucky, this will be the Valentine’s Day she rocks his bones.

They all sound fantastic! Some great authors — names I know, and some new ones too. Love that about anthologies. The title should be up on GOODREADS sometime this week, so be sure to add it to your TBR list.
Can’t wait for this one to come out. You? Share your thoughts. As I always say, Sharing is Caring!
Happy New Year, everyone.
