Cover Reveal - Bella's Point by Elizabeth Seckman

Did you know? The cost of coffee post US Civil War was outrageous. And good manners forced Bella to only use what little coffee she had sparingly and for guests. But Bella didn't have to break her caffeine addiction. Yaupon leaves contain caffeine and grow wild in the southern US. Brew some up and you have a steamy cup of coffee alternative.

Isabella Troy Stanley is a divorced, slave freeing pariah surviving in the shattered post Civil War south the only way a fallen debutante knows how. 

She heads to a Yankee prison and buys herself a husband. 

Jack Byron is the former Troy plantation stable boy and object of young Bella's affection. He rejected her then, and he's still not sold on the idea of marrying her now.  

It’s complicated.

Though to Bella, it’s simple: make Jack love her, marry her, and live happily ever after. The plan seems to least until her secret is revealed.

Elizabeth is a wife, a mom, and a writer. She has four wonderful boys, one dusty house, and three published books to her credit. Feel free to check them out and buy them HERE! Erm, the books, not the kids or the house...though all things in life are negotiable ;)

  1. Congratulations, Elizabeth!
    And thanks for promoting the showdown. The dwarf judges may be biased and I need all the help I can get...

  2. Elizabeth's making a great splash today! Good for her. I've cast my vote already. Can't wait to see who wins in this contest.

  3. Elizabeth's story sounds pretty fun. I like the "It's complicated." The cover is freaking gorgeous.

    I hopped over to Father Dragon's. I'll admit, I'm a bit partial to ninjas...
