Fall in Love With the Crescent City in This .99c Historical Romance!

Editor’s Note: People will like Creole Moon’s combination of an evocative setting, lots of historical detail and a romantic story, with a little adventure thrown in to spice things up!

Book Description:  Creole Moon is the story of a sheltered girl, Lucie Dupin, who comes of age in New Orleans in the 1840’s. Facing loss and betrayal she couldn’t have imagined, Lucie struggles to stay true to the things she was raised to believe were most important. She finds, in Stephen Arroyo, a man who will challenge her, exasperate her, and ultimately help her to learn who she is, and whom she hopes to be.

Author’s Inspiration:  I grew up in New Orleans and always loved learning about the city and its history. Lots of people love New Orleans for its uniqueness — and so do I! — but the history of the city is a lot more complex than just jazz and delicious food. I wanted to tell a story that evoked the romance and mystery of New Orleans while staying historically true to the period. I was interested in thinking about what an independent heroine might be like in this time and place, and what obstacles she’d run up against. I also wanted to create characters that represented the many different types of people who lived in the city, and the influences of European, African and Caribbean culture on New Orleans.

 

Grab this .99c romance on your KINDLE on August 14 – 21!


GENEVIEVE STUART

It’s no surprise that author Genevieve Stuart has so indelibly captured the magic and mystery of New Orleans in her debut novel. Growing up in the Crescent City, Stuart couldn’t help but breathe in the rich and exotic cultural heritage that lingers behind each wrought-iron gate and echoes in the French Quarter moonlight. It was the perfect setting to foster a lifelong love of historical novels that bring the past to life with vivid detail and passionate romance. A world traveler now living in Maryland with her husband and two children, Stuart continues to find inspiration in the rich tapestries of culture and history.

Award-Winning Historical Fiction on Kindle!

Editor’s Note: LATERN IN THE MIST features strong female characters placed in intense, emotional situations, and backgrounds filled with adventure.

Book Description: In 1899, a strong and spirited young woman travels the width of America with the paralyzed sister she loves and a man she cannot bring herself to trust. Though she begins her journey thoughtless and innocent, Kathleen learns to survive in a savage world. She will shoot to kill if she must in order to protect her sister and herself. Will the hardships she has endured forever close her heart to love?

Author’s Inspiration: I was inspired by the human condition and the social history of the American woman. I think it’s fascinating to show the contrast between then and now. For example, in Lantern in the Mist, I touch on prejudices of the time: women’s rights and how the disabled were treated in the late 1890s.I created Lantern in the Mist to be an exciting series that traces the birth and growth of modern America through dynamic characters who represent our country’s history.
