Holding Out for a Fairy Tale Cover Art and Blurb

I feel like I’m still in those long, slow weeks of January were everyone is winding down from the holidays, and the entire month of February seems to have come and gone without me really noticing. Suddenly it’s March, and the spin-off of A Casual Weekend Thing is in its final round of edits! I’ve got cover art, blurbs, and all that fun stuff to share.

Here is the official blurb and cover art, once again produced by Dreamspinner Press’s wonderful Brooke Albrecht!

When his vicious cousin Alejandro makes a violent late-night visit, San Diego homicide detective Ray Delgado gets a brutal reminder of why he left his family behind. Alejandro wants Ray to find his sister, Sophia, who disappeared from the UC San Diego campus, before the FBI digs too deep into his business.

Special Agent Elliot Belkamp spent his entire life jumping from one place to another, but his new assignment assisting a FBI task force offers him a chance to settle down. When Elliot catches a missing persons case as his first assignment, the last person he expects to find poking around the victim’s dorm room is Ray, a one-time hookup he’s more inclined to punch in the face than kiss hello.
After discovering Sophia's disappearance is linked to a massive computer-based theft that has two powerful crime families ready to declare war, Elliot focuses on his investigation and tries to ignore Ray.  As the search for Sophia turns dangerous, Elliot and Ray discover that tackling organized crime might be easier than resisting the urge to tackle each other.

I’ve also posted a longer excerpt on the book’s page HERE if anyone would like to read the first chapter!


  1. very much looking forward to this!
    and i notice the cover design concept is the same as for casual weekend thing, makes my bookshelf ocd really happy...

  2. Looking forward to reading this one. I really enjoyed A casual Weedend Thing. By the way there is a typo in the second paragraph of the blurb. I normally wouldn't mention it, but if this is the official version you may want to check it out.

    1. oh my! One too many articles! Thank you so much! Blurbs are such a process with Dreamspinner Press, so even though a half-dozen sets of eyes are involved in drafting them, things still slip by.

  3. I pre-ordered it already! I can`t wait for may!


A Rant About Fanfiction
