Every day throughout the month of April 2015, I’ll be featuring an author and one of their novels. The featured authors share two main characteristics, firstly I enjoyed their novel, and secondly they publish independently or with a small publisher.
The spotlight has five parts: why I recommend the novel, and the author’s answers to three questions: what it’s the novel about, what the author is working on now, something about the author, and links to author and works.
Letter ‘A’ is for Loreen Auguri author of Lost Honor
Why do I recommend Lost Honor?
I enjoy novels with strong-willed heroines who are faced with almost impossible situations. I loved the way Arianna, a young girl living in a man’s world, struggles to assert her independence, defying her father and every other man who gets in her way to working on a ship. I also enjoyed the hazardous love story between the defiant girl and her mysterious sea-captain. There is plenty of adventure at sea, including a spell on a desert island, a pirate attack, and a sea storm. If you like exciting, happy ever after, historical romance, you will find this a delightful read.
What’s your novel about, Loreen?
Enter a world filled with adventure, heart-tugging emotion, and love. Lost Honor features, Morgan, a tormented, handsome sea-captain, Arianna, a strong-willed stowaway, and pirates.
From the moment Arianna is discovered in the hold, she is determined to become a member of the crew. Morgan refuses to allow it. As Morgan searches for the pirates who kidnapped his brother, Morgan’s and Arianna’s wills clash and desire builds. Soon Morgan’s all-important honor is threatened as he finds himself drawn to Arianna while betrothed to another.
What are you working on now?
I’m working on a historical romance novel set in England in 1820. The heroine and her sister are fleeing from their uncle who is the sister’s guardian. The hero is sent to find them and bring them back. After I finish that novel, I want to write another book about the heroine’s sister or about Morgan’s brother from Lost Honor.
What would you like readers to know about you?
I have always liked to read and write. As a young child, I created stories featuring a young girl and her loyal horse. Riding was my favorite pastime.
I started reading historical romances when my children were babies. When my youngest daughter started school, I decided I wanted to write a novel. At first, to see if I could, later as a hobby, and then seeking publication. Becoming a member of the Romance Writers of America and my local chapter, New England Chapter, helped in the process.
I live in Massachusetts with my husband of thirty-three years and my two adult daughters. When I am not reading or writing, I enjoy walking, dancing, and spending time at the beach.
