Here’s the lineup from Revell Books for late 2014 and I hate to say it but I’m quite disappointed with the majority of these covers. This is all about personal preference and most of these don’t ring my bell but I’m sure other readers will adore them. So, for me, the ones that do catch my eye are Jane’s, Bonnie’s, and Laura’s.
While I’m looking forward to reading Patricia’s, Lynette’s, and Irene’s their covers while they aren’t terrible, they are a bit more of the same. I think the plain block font, and the stark white, just seem harsh to me and not appealing to the eye. I love the colours on both Irene’s and Patricia’s but the entire look, not so much.

That’s all it takes for Ellis Eton to find herself working as a telephone operator for a look-alike friend. For Ellis, this job will provide not only acting practice but the funds to get her a start in the movies. She’s tired of always being a disappointment to her traditional Boston family, and though she can’t deny the way he makes her head spin, she knows she’s not good enough for Griffin Phillips, either. It’s simple: avoid Griff’s attentions, work, and get paid. But in typical Ellis fashion, her simple plan spirals out of control when she overhears a menacing phone call…with her very own Griff as the target.
Introducing Ellis Eton
Brief physical description
Ellis Eton …
A twenty-first-century doctor. A third-century plague. A love out of time.
First-year resident Dr. Lisbeth Hastings is too busy to take her father’s bizarre summons seriously. But when a tragic mistake puts her career in jeopardy, answering her father’s call seems her only hope of redeeming the devastating failure that her life has become.
While exploring the haunting cave at her father’s archaeological dig, Lisbeth falls through a hidden hole, awakening to find herself the object of a slave auction and the ruins of Roman Carthage inexplicably restored to a thriving metropolis.

Cyprian Thascius believes God called him to rescue the mysterious woman from the slave trader’s cell. What he doesn’t understand is why saving the church of his newfound faith requires him to love a woman whose peculiar …
