I have a confession to make. Do you promise not to tell anyone? I’ve got to admit it. I have a HUGE crush on the hero of my latest book, CAPTIVE OF SIN! Not that my longings are going to do me any good. Sir Gideon Trevithick is completely in love with Lady Charis Weston. Sigh. The poor author just doesn’t get a look-in! Not that this author is sour about that or anything. MUCH! Gideon is a complete man of honor, a characteristic I find terrifically attractive. He’s brave, self-sacrificing, ethical, steadfast, protective. Lucky Charis! In fact, he’s the complete knight in shining armor package. When he gives his word, he never wavers, whatever the price he must pay personally as a result.

When an elderly Asian jewelry seller at a street fair shows her a black jade ring—and tells her that “black jade” translates to “Daiyu”—she buys it as a talisman of her heritage. But it’s more than that; it’s magic. It takes Daiyu through a gateway into a version of St. Louis much like 19th century China. Almost immediately she is recruited as a spy, which means hours of training in manners and niceties and sleight of hand. It also means stealing time to be with handsome Kalen, who is in on the plan. There’s only one problem. Once her task is done, she must go back to St. Louis and leave him behind forever. . . . Previous Picks Visit FreshFiction.com to learn more about books and authors.
