Cover Reveal – Charming the Troublemaker

by | Sep 7, 2017 | Charming the Troublemaker | 8 comments

Okay, so…this sequel to A Twist of Faith has been a LOOOOONGGG time coming, but I absolutely love the story.

A little history – I started this novel as a LOOSE retelling of Elizabeth Gaskell’s novel North & South , but the characters took this story in a little different direction, though I think you might see some similar themes, but you ‘have to look hard’ (Die-hard N&S fans will get that reference).

For one, Alex Murdock took over…and I fell in love with him. He was SO. MUCH. FUN to write!! He’s not your typical hero, a flirt who’s down on his luck, but he was just waayyyy too adorkable to leave untapped. Thus, the creation of the hashtag #AdorkableAlex.

I hope to share a few sneak peeks next week, but for not let me tell you a little about Charming the Troublemaker before the great unveiling (and I see you! Don’t skim to the bottom first. You need to enjoy the journey)

About the Book

Book 2 in Mitchell’s Crossroads Series
Releases November 1, 2017

When Dr. Alex Murdock is demoted to a university in rural Virginia, the last thing he expects to find is a future. But country charm never looked as good as it does on Rainey Mitchell.

Rainey Mitchell does not need a high-class flirt in her wounded world, but trouble and temptation wafts off the new professor as strong as his sandalwood-scented cologne.

When circumstances thrust them together to save her tutoring clinic, can the troublemaker find the hero inside and encourage the reticent Rainey to open her heart again?

Drum roll please….


And a peek at the back cover….
