Charleston holds a fascination for me.  I’m Southern, born and raised in Northeast Mississippi. I had never even been to Charleston until I had already wrote my first book set in the city. Researching its history, it called to me. Its rich characters, intensity, and it’s absolutely a lovely city.

I just returned from Charleston a couple of weeks ago. I went down to do some research on my Southern Legacy series.

 AMAZON LINK: The Judas Kiss

Cathryn Blankenship has no desire for a season in London! Why on earth would her father want her to leave her home in Charles Town? Upon Cathryn’s steadfast refusal, Governor Blankenship is forced to assign a young lieutenant to watch over Cathryn on the journey and ensure his daughter’s appearance in London. Cathryn finds Lieutenant Jake Pennington the most aggravating, maddening man she has ever met…a man Cathryn soon admits she is in no hurry to see leave. But fate has other plans for her in a world she is ill prepared to enter. She descends into a place where love and betrayal go hand and hand, where greed and treachery are second nature, but moreover the threat her father believes he has sent her is awaiting her arrival. When fate tears her apart from her Lieutenant, Cathryn finds herself desolate and alone. Soon Cathryn makes fateful decisions that will eventually send her back to her home where she will have to fight for her life. And the only one that can save her is the one she believes deserted her.
