It’s here at last! A week ago, I revealed the title and synopsis for Devoted to Her, the novel I’ve been working on. As I mentioned, it is the sequel to last year’s Dream Date. This second installment concludes the story of Amanda Tilley and Nathan Ferland. They’re going to face significantly tougher challenges than they did in the previous book. Today, I’m proud to unveil the finished cover art for Devoted to Her. Here it is:
TITLE: Devoted to Her (Dream Date, #2)
AUTHOR: Ivan Kendrick
RELEASE DATE: March 24, 2015
GENRE: New Adult, contemporary romance
Did you all like this cover art? The way it turned out was sort of an accident. The Devoted to Her cover was originally going to be similar to the one for the second edition of Dream Date. Amanda Tilley was going to be on the cover once again, although wearing a…well, if I tell you I’d spoil the plot a little. A friend noticed the images that were meant to become promotional banners. It turns out that those images are much better as cover art. That’s why I released a third edition of Dream Date with cover art that paired better with the one above. This kind of taught me a lesson about how to make better covers, and not to get attached to one design too soon. I got attached to the art for the second edition of Dream Date. I failed to realize that covers are meant to look good to potential readers, not to just please the author.
Devoted to Her will be available on Kindle, Nook, Kobo, and Apple, just like Dream Date. I will add the synopsis below so you don’t have to click away from this post to find it.
It’s been several months since Nathan Ferland managed to win the heart of his true love, Amanda Tilley. He had to make a difficult choice to achieve it, but in the end it was well worth it. Now, Nathan feels on top of the world. After sending Hilbert Melendez–Amanda’s former talent agent turned sexual offender–to jail, Amanda and Nathan can be happy together. The two spend the New Year holidays getting to better know each other.
With Valentine’s Day approaching, Nathan prepares a special surprise for Amanda. He feels sure about his love for her. However, Nathan had no idea what being Amanda’s boyfriend truly entailed. The prospect is harder than he thought it would be. As a gorgeous and relatively well-known model, Amanda gets lots of attention from the opposite sex almost anywhere she goes. The most notable is Christopher Holt, a guy with dubious intentions who has recently befriended Amanda. All of that is slowly getting on Nathan’s nerves, even though he’s trying his best to deal with it. To make matters worse, Rebecca Jenkins is secretly plotting to exact revenge on Amanda for what she did to Hilbert. In the wake of seemingly random incidents, Amanda is forced to recall her bodyguards. Since Hilbert is in jail, no one can guess who is after Amanda now.
Once Rebecca’s machinations cause Amanda to begin doubting Nathan, things start to get worse. Soon, the least of Nathan’s worries will be to lose Amanda’s trust. If he can’t discover who’s behind it all, Nathan could lose the love of his life. He’s about to learn that winning Amanda’s heart was the easy part. Actually keeping it will be the real challenge.
