Cover blurb for The General's Mistress

Can I say again how much I love the cover for The General's Mistress? I am absolutely in love with it! And now I have the back cover blurb for it --

Liberté, Egalité, Sensualité…

As a spirit of change overturns Europe’s old order, strong-willed Elzelina Versfelt
enters her own age of revolution. Married as a romantic young girl to a man who
wanted only her money, but neither loves nor desires her, Elza refuses to be
chained any longer. Leaving Amsterdam, her marriage, and her home, she flees to
France—where the old rules no longer apply, debauchery is not a sin . . . and
nothing is forbidden.

Yet Elza finds herself bound in a new way, to the ambitious General Moreau.
And while they share pleasure, pain, and carnal adventures, she dreams of another
man, an unruly red-haired soldier she first saw in the promise of a Tarot card.
Drawn by this half-real, half-imagined hero, Elza defies her relationship with
Moreau, and begins a perilous search across war-torn Europe. . . . But will this
woman with the instincts of a survivor, the passion of a courtesan, and the gift of
second sight ever find the destiny for which she has risked it all?

This stunning novel blends history with the language of the heart to tell a
sensual story of an era of upheaval . . . and of the clamoring, dangerous desires of
a woman’s soul.



October cannot come soon enough! And I will have bound galleys next week!

I think it's great! I'm always terrible at writing these things. I can never sum the book up in a hundred words!
