Cover Reveal – Ruthie Knox
News / January 5, 2013

Hello, everyone! I’m thrilled to be able to reveal the cover for the final title in my upcoming Camelot series with Loveswept: FLIRTING WITH DISASTER. I hope you love it as much as I do! I’ve been really gratified to see each of the covers the Random House design team comes up with for this series — all of them sexy and intimate, but with that spirit of fun that infuses all three of these stories. The Camelot series consists of a hundred-page novella and two full-length novels set in the Midwestern college town of Camelot, Ohio. It revolves around the three Clark siblings — Amber, Caleb, and Katie — and contains a number of hot security guys, extended-family shenanigans, banter, angst, and of course the occasional steamy scene, just to keep things interesting. Here’s a handy cheat sheet so you can keep the stories straight: I’m looking forward to sharing these books with romance lovers everywhere. Happy reading!

A series contemporary, on the other hand…What can I say?  A story for a line like Harlequin Desire is bare bones plot—a hero, a heroine, a compelling situation and some (lots of)…
