I have gone back and forth on this for the past two months, but I’m just not happy with the cover. There’s nothing “wrong” with it, but I just wan’t satisfied. So I combed through all the stock photo sites I frequent. Finally, I found images that worked for my vision of the book. The heroine had to be blonde and fun looking (and historical western looking) and I wanted a suitable background and guy.
What I found has required me to change the title of the book since there is no lasso on it. I might use the title in the future but make it Lassoing His Bride because I can find a ton of cowboys with lassos. I can’t find any suitable historical western women with lassos. All of the women I found with lassos were either comedic in nature or contemporary.
So after some brainstorming with a writer friend, we decided on Catching Kent for the title. I decided to put Kent in the title to help people know it complements Kent Ashton’s Backstory. Since the heroine, Rose Larson, does a ton of pursuing and eventually wins Kent, we decided on Catching for the first part of the title.
Without further ado, here’s the change:
