Regaining Trust

Cover reveal: Regaining Trust

I told you about my upcoming release Regaining Trust a couple weeks back, and now I have a cover I’m dying to show you because it’s so pretty.

So without further ado, here it is. Isn’t it gorgeous? 😍


When workaholic Lawrence Weller walks in on the aftermath of his fiancé Frankie cheating on him, his world shatters. Frankie’s the love of his life, the only person he’s ever trusted, and the betrayal leaves him devastated.

Franklin Ennis makes a huge mistake that he regrets deeply before it’s even over. He pleads for a second chance, willing to do whatever it takes to save their relationship.

A love that deep doesn’t just stop, so Lawrence agrees to try. But mistakes don’t happen in a vacuum. Are they both willing to own up to their part? Will their love be enough to repair what was crushed? Can trust once broken be rebuilt?

Regaining Trust

Regaining Trust

A couple months back, I scrolled past an article in the news that was about how to stay together if your partner had been unfaithful. That sparked a whole slew of thoughts and questions in my mind, and I thought What if I’d write a story about an established couple where one of the MCs is unfaithful to the other because of reasons, but they don’t want to break up despite this? 

At first I discarded the idea, because I know how readers feel about infidelity. Heck, I’m one of them. But I’m also a sucker for second chances and I naïvely believe that love conquers all. And I also thought that if you love someone, really love someone, do you stop loving them because of an infidelity?

So I decided to explore all these questions, and that exploration turned into Regaining Trust.

Regaining Trust is unusually angsty to be a Nell Iris story, but the theme demands angst. It’s also a bit longer than I usually write; it’s currently at about 30K words and I still have the final edits to do, so the word count is subject to change.

The story just poured out of me, to be honest. I thought it would be hard, since it’s a difficult topic and since I’m usually the Queen of Fluff, but this story wanted to be told. And I love Lawrence and Frankie and their determination; I hope you’ll give their story a chance. They deserve it.

The fabulous J.M. Snyder sometimes writes with me, Ofelia Gränd and A.L. Lester in our morning writing session whenever she can; she’s American and the rest of us are European, so we have a time zone issue to deal with.

Between sprints, we talk about what we’re writing, and I’ve spoken about my Lawrence and Frankie’s story of course. One morning, J.M. sent me a quote, said she’d thought of my story when she read it. And I agree. It fits perfectly.

So thanks, J.M. ❤️ I really appreciate the quote.
