A seductive tale of love, treachery and betrayal in the late 1800’s in the Old South. Hard headed, reckless angel with long blonde hair, Justeen, born into a life of privilege at Briar Manor in Savannah, Georgia, runs away at sixteen with her slave, Ruby, when her wicked stepmother blames Justeen for her father’s death.
Joining an itinerant charismatic preacher and his family, they meet a handsome plantation owner in Jacksonville, Florida. Torn between two loves, an explosive exposé at the lighthouse in sultry Florida decides Justeen’s fate.
Florida Fever – a sequel to Angel’s True Love
Heaven doesn’t last forever–sultry, sensual, intrigue, politics and murder in the wilds of untamed Florida.
Justeen is anything but ordinary and her extraordinary experiences prove it! Living through a devastating hurricane, a grueling political campaign, and a contentious court trial, she courageously fights not only for her life, but for the lives of her beloved family when the “yellow jack” fever comes roaring through Jacksonville, Florida.
Welcome friends and readers! I’m delighted to announce the debut of my love stories, a departure from my young adult novels.
Sinful Love - Under A Blood Moon – a sequel to Angel’s True Love & Florida Fever
Will the beautiful Justeen ever find lasting love?
Blood Moon is an evil omen, according to slaves’ superstition, a portent of something bad happening at Pinecrest Plantation outside Jacksonville, Florida in 1859. Making her way in a man’s world is not easy and brings Justine to the attention of a serial killer.
She is a young, rich widow pursued by two men, one a handsome, amiable doctor, head of the hospital she built, and the other, her dashing rake brother-in-law, familiar with prostitutes and gaming dens. Who will steal her heart?
Becoming a racehorse owner and opening an art studio, Justeen finds glory and despair. Courage and compassion made her special but earned her the name of “slave lover.” Can she find peace and happiness? Find out in the conclusion to this trilogy.
