April showers of women's fiction
This month brings an eclectic collection of compelling women's fiction as diverse in style, settings and stories as April's unpredictable weather.
For a man hunting for treasure, the lure of old Havana may be intriguing, but the beguilement of a gypsy flamenco dancer proves irresistible in Kristen Kyle's delightful Promise of Gold.
Derek Carlisle, Viscount Graystone, is desperate to get his hands on an old journal that would guide him to a sunken Spanish treasure. Just when he thinks he has the journal, the gypsy dancer demonstrates an additional talent for burglary and snatches the journal for herself. Rosa Constanza Wright has three doting, aging godfathers to protect and provide for, and she's willing to go to any lengths for them. Even if it takes her to the turbulent seas in search of gold, where Rosa and Derek find an even greater treasure in each other.
Sandy Huseby writes and reviews from her homes in Fargo, North Dakota, and lakeside in northern Minnesota.
