Exclusive Cover Reveal: Rival Within by SJD Peterson

Cover Reveal

WOW! OMG! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this cover… and If there is one author guaranteed to get me salivating at the news of an upcoming release, it’s SJD Peterson and after reading the blurb and the whole atmosphere of that cover, I literally CAN. NOT. WAIT… for Rival Within, roll on NOVEMBER!


Rival Within by SJD Peterson



Publisher ~ Dreamspinner Press


Deputy Sheriff Thomas Weber made a vow of marriage to his wife, a vow to his God to resist temptation, and a vow to uphold the law. But when Tom is forced to shelter a dark-haired stranger from the tornado raging over the county, long suppressed desires are brought to the surface and he is powerless to resist.

Ben Parker has hidden his true nature his whole life. The laws in 1952 are very clear, and to expose himself would mean rotting in jail, shunned or worse, a possible death sentence. Unable to find a job, he turned to crime. Seven years later, he’s still angry and tired of hiding who he really is from the world. After meeting Thomas, Ben can envision himself settling down for the first time. The only problem is, he’s already forced Thomas to break the law and become his alibi. And then there’s the little obstacle of Tom’s wife, family, and commitment to the town of Ramer.

I asked Jo for some inspiration photo’s and made a teaser to go with the quote from Haruki  Murakami, also part of the inspiration behind writing this book.
