First glimpse of Breaking the Governess's Rules cover

Yesterday the UK hardback version of Breaking the Governess's Rules arrived. It is loosely linked to Compromising Miss Milton and the hardback comes out in January.  I love the feel of the cover but the costume is wrong. Some day, I will get an Early Victorian cover for an Early Victorian set novel!
The blurb reads:
‘How delightful to meet you again, Miss Louisa Sibson.’

Jonathon Lord Chesterholm’s eyes bored holes into Louisa Sibson’s back. The former fiancĂ©e he’s thought dead is very much alive…

Louisa has rebuilt her life, after being dishonourably dismissed from her post as governess for allowing Jonathon to seduce her. Now Louisa lives by a rulebook of morals and virtue—the devastating Lord Chesterholm will not ruin her again!

But Jonathon will get to the bottom of Louisa’s disappearance – and he’ll enjoy breaking a few of her rules along the way…
I will get an excerpt up for my next newsletter which will go out 1 December. No prizes for guessing what the Reader's giveaway will be!
I am blogging today at Tote Bags about writing the Online serial His Stand In Bride and some of the challenges I faced.

I love that title! Is M&B moving away from the Presents-esque titles for their historical romance line?

Jane Holland said...

I second Evangeline's question. (No relation - as far as I know!)

I do hope so.

Love the cover! Very seductive. Though, as you say, wrong period clothing.

Well, perhaps we can pretend they were at a retro party.

Short answer: I am not sure.

I know across the borad they are trying for different titles.

What I have taken to doing after IMCW is to send in lists of possible titles so that one of them might spur some idea for the editors.
Titling can be very difficult, particularly when you have to title a number of books month in and month out...

It is a good cover, you must be pleased! I did wonder when the new cover designs were going to filter through to the hardbacks...?
