Drum roll, please.
It’s time to reveal the cover for the third instalment in West Australian rural romance author Sasha Wasley’s ‘Daughters of the Outback’ series — and it’s a beauty.
Love Song, due for release on 4 June, completes the trilogy of stories featuring the Paterson girls — Willow, Free and Beth — each of whom is carving a unique place in Australia’s ruggedly picturesque North West.
The first two books in the series have been best-sellers for Sasha, and are generating plenty of interest in Germany, where they were recently released.
To coincide with the cover reveal for Love Song, Sasha tells me she’s also excited to be able to announce that she’s just sold the film rights to all three novels and hopes to see the Paterson sisters on the screen before too long.
Here’s the blurb for Love Song:
When she agreed to tutor Charlie Campbell, falling in love was the last thing on her mind.
At 17, Beth Paterson had just lost her mother and was working hard to get in to university. She didn’t expect to lose her head over a boy – and she certainly didn’t expect him to vanish without even saying goodbye.
These days, Charlie is a big star on the alternative rock scene, while Beth is a respected doctor in her hometown. But her ordered life is thrown into turmoil when Charlie comes back to fight for the tiny community where he was raised. They can’t stop crossing paths any more than Beth can ignore the resurgence of that wild attraction they once shared.
However, Beth Paterson swore no man would ever screw her over again – least of all this man. She’s been protecting her heart since he left and she’s not about to let her guard down now.
“I love that the cover has gone back to the amazing red and blue spectrum of the Kimberley region,” Sasha says.
“Beth is perfect – strong, solitary and sexy. And the best bit is the handwritten musical notes peeping through, reminding us that Charlie Campbell’s voice is always whispering in the back of Beth’s memory.”
