Queer historical romances are some of my favourite stories; I love exploring history or moments in time with a queer lens. Today, The Quiet Pond has the privilege of sharing with you all an exclusive cover reveal for Of Trust and Heart by Charlotte Anne Hamilton, a new adult sapphic historical romance. I’m so looking forward to this queer romance, friends, and I cannot wait for you all to behold its gorgeous book cover.
When I read the synopsis for Of Trust and Heart, I fell in love instantly. Set in the 1920s during the Prohibition era, Of Trust and Heart promises a seductive and compelling romance between an heiress and a singer at a speakeasy. And although illustrated book covers have a place in my heart, seeing two queer girls front and center also has my heart aflutter. I’m so excited that I get to help Charlotte share her book’s cover with you all today.
Here is the book’s summary:
The Great War changed everything for Lady Harriet Cunningham. Instead of being presented at eighteen, she trained to be a nurse and shared forbidden kisses with her colleagues.
But now in 1923, at the age of 24, Harriet is facing spinsterhood.
It’s not such a ghastly prospect to her, but as the daughter of the Earl of Creoch, there’s a certain expectation that she must meet. So, in a last attempt to find a match for their daughter to see her safe and secure, they send her to her aunt and uncle in New York.
Only when she gets there, she and her cousin, a man who, like her, suffers from the weight of expectation from his father, decide on one last hoorah as a memory to hold close to their heart in their later life.
But when they arrive at the speakeasy hidden beneath a small bookstore, Harriet finds herself entranced by the singer. No matter how hard she wants to please her family and do her duty, she finds that there’s something about the woman that she can’t stay away from — that she can’t ignore her heart. Which is loudly calling for Miss Rosalie Smith.
Of Trust and Heart releases on the 18th of October, 2021!
