I Theena’s Landing. , my new novel, is probably best described as historical women’s fiction with romance elements. It’s set on the Miami River in the 1800s among the exotic blooms, tropical breezes, and blue skies of South Florida. Three sisters struggle to make a life for themselves in the wilds between the Everglades and the Atlantic Ocean.
My editor told me my readers would hate me for writing this book. The heroine is in love with her sister’s husband. I know it’s not the typical romance, I said, but Theena is not bent on betrayal and deceit. In fact, just the opposite. She strives for virtue and honor, and at last grows into the woman she wants to be. And after all the trials and tribulations, the reader can enjoy her well-earned happy ending.
Theena’s Landing is an e-book. You can read the blurb and the first chapter on my website . I hope you’ll stop by and give it a look.
