So, being on Heather Manning’s Street Team for her novels, I got to see this cover a couple days ago and last night I was told that now I can reveal the cover for this beautiful novel!
But….. Before I do so, I should probably fill you in on a couple things about this book AND tell you about it! (What? Did you think I was just going to show it to you first??)
First things first! Carried Home is the second book in a series (Historical Fiction by the way) written by my friend Heather Manning and the first book is WONDERFUL! If you go buy it right now, you may just finish before the release date of Carried Home (which is April 28th)

Now, It’s time to tell you what Carried Home is about!
About the book:
The Caribbean is no place for a society lady of London, yet after a daring quest to save a friend, Lady Ivy Shaw finds herself trapped far from home. Now, driven with worry for her young brother, she is determined to return to England in all haste. So, when a new acquaintance offers to sail her to her brother’s side, she jumps at the offer, scarcely caring that the man is a privateer.
Captain Gage Thompson is just learning how to be a captain. He sailed for years under the command of his longtime friend, Caspian Archer, but serving a captain and being a captain are, as he soon discovers, two very different roles. While struggling to gain the respect of his newfound crew, he now faces the distraction of beautiful Lady Shaw. He finds himself entranced by her and promises to give her passage home.
After a brief stop in Port Royal, Ivy and Gage discover an abandoned child. They both decide to bring her with them on their voyage to England. But problems soon arise in the form of hurricanes and enemy pirates, and Ivy and Gage find themselves scrambling to not only care for a lonely child, but also gain command of a motley crew.
Will love bud between Ivy and Gage as they journey home?
Now…The moment you have all been waiting for!
…..THE COVER OF CARRIED HOME!
Isn’t it gorgeous?! I’m IN LOVE with this cover. It is simply stunning!
