As promised, here is the cover for YULETIDE PROTECTOR, my December 2009 release from Love Inspired Suspense. I love Christmas stories. So when my editor asked me if I wanted to write Yuletide Protector as a Christmas story I jumped at the chance. It was a blast to write because it was the first book I wrote using my husband's input. As a police officer, Tom's input was important and it was fun brainstorming the story with him.

Here is a blurb from Yuletide Protector:
A DEFENDER FOR CHRISTMAS - Her ex-husband wants her dead? Daria Carlisle can hardly believe it. Detective Kevin Gordon insists it's true...and that it's his fault that her ex is still at large. Which means it's his responsibility to make sure Daria stays safe. He knows first hand that Daria's ex means business. And with Christmas coming, the determined cop intends to give Daria the holiday celebration she deserves - safe and sound by his side forever.

Until next time, many blessings, Lisa Mondello

OK, I wouldn't mind finding THAT guy on my doorstep Christmas morning. You get the hunk and I get the scarecrow. Something unfair about this. :)

Looking forward to reading yours!

I must admit, I do love this cover. As you may recall from a previous blog post, my editor emailed me when I was doing the revisions for this book. She said that I needed to "cut" the ponytail the hero had and she had a really good reason for it. She'd seen the cover and I hadn't. But she was right. The cover is gorgeous and it was worth giving the hero a haircut for.

Ramona, I don't know why I've lucked out with my covers. I really love this one.

I think it's a great cover.

Have you looked at its Amazon page lately? There are already 2 used listing (interesting for a book that doesn't release yet) and three editions, which turn out to be a different book!

Sometimes the Amazon quirks are just mysterious.
