In the editing process right now, my second book coming out with Decadent Publishing is a civil war story. Maggie is the "Black Widow" spy for the north. She lives in northern Arkansas during the brunt of the war and plays a vital key to the victories there by the Union Army. But Maggie has a story of her own, and it has little to do with the war. She's half mullato and half white, a runaway slave from Louisiana that seeks shelter in the mountains of Arkansas. At sixteen she escaped the horrid plantation owner and fled for higher ground. But there is a price to pay for that freedom, and Maggie becomes one of the most famous in the Union Army. Everyone knows about the venom of the "Black Widow". At eighteen she meets Jesse Coleman, a confederate spy who has been ordered to bring her in.
Neither of these two unsuspecting people planned on falling in love so quickly, or so hard. But it happened. Jesse found Maggie irresistible and despite his orders, he couldn't stop the flames of desire. Even after making love to her thoroughly, he knew he had to bring her in, especially when she escaped to warn the Union Army. When she returned, Jesse took her captive. He knew she'd never forgive him, and it broke his heart to turn her in, because he was sure he loved her.
When the war was over, Maggie's troubles weren't. The prison guards had sworn to find her and kill her. Making good on their promise, Maggie left the fort, her daughter with her, and headed for Jesse's place in Texas. Jesse helped get her in this mess, he would help get her out. He owed her. And she was collecting. Even though her heart melted from his touches, she had a new set of rules for Jesse and he would respect them.
But could Maggie live with her own Love Rules?
This magnificent couple comes together to fight for survival, with a burning desire and a love that cannot be denied.
I hope you will stop by and check this one out. It's coming soon from Decadent Publishing.
What's next, a spring off of Beyond the Dream Catcher, Lee's story, which is still in the works. A new contemporary series and many more books. I hope you'll stop off at Decadent often and check my books out as I'll be writing up a storm.
