Exclusive Cover Reveal: Brenda Joyce’s A Rose in the Storm
Historical fiction author Brenda Joyce is back with a brand-new release from Harlequin HQN! For the cover, the Harlequin art department wanted to harken back to a classic historical romance period. If you remember The Flame and the Flower, you know what we’re talking about. Kathleen E. Woodiwiss’s classic romance was used as inspiration for A Rose in the Storm. The art department also looked toward the HBO TV show Game of Thrones and the time of Robert the Bruce for visual cues to create this beautiful cover.
While all types of wayfarers blaze through Scotland, the fate of the Comyn-MacDougall legacy depends on one woman. Recently orphaned, young Margaret Comyn must secure her clan’s safety through an arranged marriage. But when an enemy invasion puts her at the mercy of the notorious Wolf of Lochaber, her every loyalty and secret want will be challenged.
Legendary warrior Alexander “the Wolf” MacDonald rides with Robert Bruce to seize the throne of Scotland. But when he takes the fiery Lady Margaret prisoner, she quickly becomes far more than a valuable hostage. For the passion between them threatens to betray their families, their country…and their hearts.
Brenda is an incredible talent and a master of epic historical romance – big, emotional stories that sweep the reader away. A Rose in the Storm is the heart-wrenching love story of two people from rival clans during the Scottish Wars of Independence—a ruthless Highland warrior and an innocent but clever-beyond-her-years Scottish rose. The stakes are high, the scope is sweeping, and the love story is one that will stay with readers for a long time to come.
