Introduction to Passion's Price

Passion's Price

Passion’s Price, Passion Series, book two. Golden Dawn is the daughter of James-Fitz-Gerald and New Moon. Dawn has inherited her father’s fair hair and blue eyes. At first sight one might mistake her for a softer sort, but like her father, she is bold and determined. From her mother she has inherited the gift of sight. Unlike her mother, she does not question for a moment what her sight reveals.  She will risk anything, including her own life, to save the man she loves. 

Raven Cloud, called Little Buffalo as a boy, is the love of Dawn’s life. James Fitz-Gerald raised Little Buffalo as his own son. James was a wealthy merchant with his main office and shipping line located in London. When Raven’s own anger and uneasy spirit forced him to leave the tribe, James appointed him his legal heir and sent him to run Fitz-Gerald Shipping. 
For years, Dawn has missed Little Buffalo as half her soul. She has a vision that he is mortal danger. Her path is clear and only she can save his life. She knows her own may be forfeited, but she is willing to take that chance. Like her mother, she will pay any price to save the man she loves--even if it means wearing white women's clothes.  

Passion’s Price is the story of a Cherokee Princess that bursts upon English High Society with one goal in mind. The story is filled with adventure and twists, daring escapades, hilarious antics, dangers, and triumphs.  

I hope you pick up a copy today and enjoy the story as much as I enjoyed writing Passion's Price.

Passion's Vision...New Moon

When I researched Cherokee women of the 1700's for Passion's Vision I was amazed by the strength, both in body and spirit, of the Cherokee woman. She was honored for being a woman. Cherokee women went to war and in fact had a say in as to the tribe going to war. They were strong in body as they built the homes, raised their children and  performed the many tasks required of a Cherokee woman of that day. They were strong in spirit as they prepared their children for the life ahead of them and took part in all aspects of the tribe.

I love reading and writing about strong women. By strong I mean the kind of women that have a sense of their own worth. Women that know how to love and to inspire. Women who will not give up. Women who make a difference in their own lives as well as those they come in contact with. This is the kind of woman I wanted New Moon to be.  It didn't take New Moon long to start developing into just such a woman. 

I hope you enjoy New Moon's story.

Tabitha's Journey

Tabitha's Journey: A Stone Mountain NovellaTabitha's Journey: A Stone Mountain Novella by Caroline Clemmons
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tabitha’s Journey by Caroline Clemmons  

Tabitha’s father has died. The reading of his will only compounds Tabitha’s pain and confusion. After years of working at the family business and keeping it running to spite her father’s and brother’s total inability to manage a business, everything is left to her brother, David. Worse, according to her father’s will, her brother is her guardian until her thirtieth birthday.

Tabitha is trapped! The inheritance her beloved grandmother and mother intended to go to her is placed out of reach as long as her brother is her guardian and, as her guardian, he is forcing her into marriage to his wife’s brother.

William, her brother-in-law, is a cruel man that is determined to ravish her to insure the marriage takes place. He has attempted to take her once and is threatening to complete the evil deed if she does not comply to his and her brother‘s wishes. Her own brother threatens to commit her to an asylum if she causes any trouble and refuses the marriage.

Tabitha’s best friend, Priscilla, accepted a proposal for marriage as a mail order bride but now wants out of the arrangement. Her best friend’s situation offers a perfect way out for Tabitha. Or so she thought.

This is a delightful book. It takes the reader back to Raedford Springs, the home of the The Men From Stone Mountain series. Tabitha’s arrival is anything but quiet and unassuming. Her attraction to Tobias, her intended husband, is strong. His strong feeling of being “passed off” is obvious.

The questions are, will Tobias Baldwin overcome his feelings of rejection and give in to the passion of his desires? Will Tabitha’s brother and lecherous brother-in-law find Tabitha before Tobias figures out what he wants?

I give Tabitha’s Journey 5 stars. I loved this book. I love reading stories that bring my favorite characters from other books together. Tabitha is full of spunk, imagination and has a heart of gold. Tobias is a big bear of a man. In fact, his nickname is Bear. His verbal responses to Tabitha seem cold at first, but I was not fooled and neither was Tabitha. He is a big, kind, bear of a man that can take care of business. Together, they are well suited and I hope to read about them again in another story.
