Secrets of Honor: A Cover Reveal


The day has arrived when I can finally share my gorgeous new cover with all of you. My friend Linda Kage of Kage Covers is the extremely talented creative spirit behind what you see.

So without further ado . . . Secrets of Honor.


By the end of a long evening working as a special set of eyes for the presidential security detail, all Kat Marengo wants is to kick off her shoes and stash two not-really-stolen rings in a secure spot. Plus, maybe sleep with Dave Krizak. No, make that definitely sleep with Dave Krizak. The next morning, she wishes her new top priorities were so simple.

As an operative for a covert agency buried in the depths of the Department of Homeland Security, Kat is asked to participate in a matter of life or death—locate a kidnapped girl believed to be held in Corpus Christi, Texas. Since the person doing the asking is the wife of the president and the girl is the daughter of her dearest friend, it’s hard to say no.

Kat and Dave quickly learn the real stakes are higher than they or the first lady believed and will require more than any of them bargained for.

The kicker? They have twenty-four hours to find the girl—or the matter of life or death will become more than a possibility.

Coming September, 2014
Kindle and Paperback

Robin said...

I know that I got all of this in an email, BUT I didn't tell you FABULOUS I think your cover is. Seriously, I love it.

Are you going to tag all of them Crime Fiction With A Kiss? If so... I think it is a great idea!

Carol Kilgore said...

Glad y'all like this cover!

Lexa - That's exactly the image I wanted to convey!

Robin - Thank you. The first book, In Name Only, is tagged. The second does not have it on the cover, but it's also Crime Fiction with a Kiss.

I was out and about this morning and tried to post on here from my phone. Now I'm home, and I see the post didn't make it. Apologies for my ineptitude with always getting electronic things to work properly.

Linda Kage at Kage Covers gets all the credit for this awesome cover. I still love it. She's tops!

Glad the plot premise is engaging some interest, too :)

Lisa - Thanks. Glad you found me! Hope you got to the website okay and entered the contest.
