A TALE OF REDEMPTION IS FINALLY READY!

The book I've been struggling with so much has had its final edit!!! I am thrilled with how well my tale of the redeeming power of love has turned out. Worth every bit of the struggle. In line with the other independent American Heiresses series, I felt the book should have a title with the heroine in it like CHEYENNE LADY and SILVER QUEEN did. The book is now called the DEFIANT DEBUTANTE. Sarah Farmington is the sole heir of a fabulously wealthy Bridgeport robber baron who has determined that after her third season, he must take matters into his own hands. None of the suitable young men appeal to the bright, independent-minded Sarah. His choice is purely a business arrangement with another man his own age, an obese repulsive toad who must have an heir for his own fortune.

Sarah will have none of him any more than she did the shallow young suitors who were only interested in her money. Defying her father, she sets out west to follow her heart's desire-teaching children. To achieve this she has already obtained a teaching position in the Cherokee Nation. A great adventure awaits her...one that she could never have imagined.

Luke Chance begins a new life as well. Saved from a firing squad by a crafty American spymaster who had plans for a man he believes he can use for good instead of the evil he had done as Lucero Alvarado. Bart McQueen believes the villain who fought for the French as a contra-guerilla during the civil war in Mexico would make a good spy for a dangerous mission in America. Luce had been a brutal, ruthless man whose own mother despised him since birth. A reader who loved BRIDE OF FORTUNE proposed to me that Luce was redeemable way back in 1996. Thanks you, Maryann Anderson. I hope you are still reading my books and will see how I have used your idea to build a romance in which Sarah and Luke find their own happy ending after he confesses his heinous past to her and she loves him anyway. Redemption love stories have always touched my heart and I hope this one will touch yours and all my readers.

Kim Killion's beautiful cover at the right of this page turned out perfectly. Within a week or so, I will have it up for sale as an e-book, once formatting is done and I upload it onto Kindle, Nook, Kobo and Apple. In the meanwhile, if you have not already, read the sneak preview of Sarah and Luke to pique your interest. Just click on my Upcoming page.

Enjoy the height of summer, heat not withstanding. Take a good book to read beneath a big shade tree along with a frosty glass of the beverage of your choice .
