Last week, I shared with you the full cover flat & back cover blurb for PROJECT: RUNAWAY HEIRESS (Harlequin Desire, April 2013).

Unfortunately, the full cover graphic is a little too small for you to read the blurb right off the back of the book, so I’ll reprint it for you:

Undercover Fashionista

When her designs keep showing up on a rival’s runway, heiress and fashion designer Lily Zaccaro vows to catch the thief. She comes up with the perfect plan—run off to L.A. and go undercover as personal assistant to the other label’s CEO, Nigel Stratham, aka the sexiest Brit alive.

As long work days turn into sizzling nights, Lily struggles to stay focused on her secret mission. She desperately hopes that Nigel is innocent because their relationship is anything but! In the face of so much deception, pretty soon their newfound love is hanging on by a thread….

But while that’s the blurb that will appear on the back of the book, as well as sites like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, & probably even eHarlequin itself, it’s not the blurb I intend to post on my website, blog, or anywhere else.  This one is…

Can you spot the difference?  It’s a small one.  Teeny-tiny, actually, though it bothers me quite a lot. :dislike

I’ll give you a hint:  Mistress Heidi is one-third in love with Jason who? :hot

All right, if you’ve given it the old Dungeon try, I’ll tell you…  The hero’s name is misspelled.  It should be Statham (after Darling Jason, of course :flutter ), but will appear on the book (& in most straight-from-the-publisher promotions) as Stratham.

So not get me started.  I pitched as much of a looney as I was able :starwars but thanks to the week New York was closed (yes, the entire city was closed) due to Hurricane Sandy, things fell behind & the step where authors are sent the back cover copy for their books so they can proofread for just this sort of mistake was bypassed. :waaa

I know, I know—it’s probably not that big a deal.  90% of you probably wouldn’t even have noticed if I hadn’t drawn your attention to it.  And even if every single reader who picks up a copy of PROJECT: RUNAWAY HEIRESS notices the discrepancy, only about 10% will be bothered by it or take the time to contact me & point it out.  (Please don’t; I’m aware, & it will only upset me all over again. :luvsmenot )

But there you have it—the only teeny-tiny mistake on an otherwise perfect cover.  And with luck, there won’t be a single typo in the book, either.  Fingers crossed!
