Nadine had signed the contract, just like the other four girls, to marry before the year was up in Vada or work in the saloon. But no one knew the girls came from a saloon. She was worried about finding a black husband for herself. All the black men she'd met so far were either already married or too young. It seemed hopeless.
However, while she was nursing Gerty back to health, Gerty's brother came home. Gabrielle Martin Lewis was a man's man, and when he found out Nadine had taken a married white man, he scorned her and told her to buy a wedding dress, they would be married on Sunday. That's how it all started.
All of Nadine's hopes rode on the fact that she had to give her white lover up. Could she do it? Was marriage to a man of color worth it?
But she married Gabe and her life began to change. What Nadine had to decide was whether it was for the better or not. She married a man who didn't want to make her his. Nadine had physical needs, always had. Could she dare to live with a man that wouldn't have her?
About the Author
Hi folks! Back to the routine now, Christmas is over. So prices have gone back to normal now. Hope you enjoyed all the sales and took advantage. Now it is back to work for all of us. I'm allowing myself a more lax schedule so I can try to get the books out to you in a timely manner but not overload myself. This year there will be more Brides of the West, More family stories. I've got a little of everything planned. And I'll be working on my mysteries too. I hope to get many stories out to you, this year, some childrens. And enlarge my audio collection at Audible. Finding Her is next out, and then The Car Stalker. A couple more children's books, Mysteries take time to write, so bear with me. ONe note, Dare to Dream was going to be # 6 in the Dream Catcher series, but due to circumstances beyond my control I will have to make that a later book. It's still coming out. As for a bio, suffice it to say, I'm a Texan tried and true. I have grown children and grandchildren and already some great-grandchildren.I've done multi jobs in my lifetime giving me a variety of experiences to write and talk about. I've done many different kinds of work from Texas Instruments, to City of Garland, to working for the Wylie Independent School District. I've worked for a hat factory, filing insurance claims, secretarial work, to waitress. My writing reflects my varied background. Another note I've had a in home day care for twenty years too. So when I write about something I have a general knowledge of it too, which is a real bonus for me. Just like my public work, my writing varies too from contemporary to historical, I write romance, thrillers, childrens. A lot of people might say gee, that's a lot of different jobs, and it is, but, I've learned from them all, and I use that experience in my writing. I want to thank all the readers over a length of time that have tried some of my books. I hope I've enlightened and entertained you. I hope I've shared some love in this world. Sharing love can't be bad, it's God given. My sincere wish is that all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas and we all look forward to having a good next year. I thank all of you for being with me all this time and I am working on books, but not too hard during the holidays. Unless I get wound up, which I sometimes do. Merry Christmas to you all. God bless.
