Quincy's Woman, my new Eclipse, Texas erotic historical western
will be released from Ellora's Cave
I backtracked to 1866 to write this short novel about an improbable couple's courtship, marriage and first year together. It was an adventure in writing, that's for certain.
Quincy's Woman evolved from a first draft (2,500 word) diary titled The Journal of Lucy Quince. It's now a 42k book written in first person POV as the story of Lucille McKenna and the love she finds on the Double-Q ranch when she becomes Mrs. Ambrose Quince.
Fresh from the post-Civil War salons and drawing rooms of Boston, Lucy McKenna considers herself a sophisticated young woman. But when she meets Texas rancher, Ambrose Quince, she turns into a flustered girl. He’s too old, war roughened and unrefined—and she has no idea how to deal with the sensual hunger he arouses within her.Ambrose falls fast and hard for the innocent debutante visiting Eclipse, Texas. Persuading Lucy to accept his pursuit becomes a duel of wits and passion as he awakens her desire.Lucy leaves Boston and childhood behind when she becomes Mrs. Ambrose Quince. Her lonely days on the Double-Q ranch are filled with work and frustration. But the nights are spent in her husband’s arms learning carnal awareness one molten caress at a time.
Quincy's Woman will be available HERE @ Ellora's Cave April 27th.
