More About the Author

Victoria was born in Clifton, one of the oldest areas in Bristol, England. As a small child she lived in various places in South Wales and England and now divides her time between Canada and visiting with her family in England.

Her very first attempts at writing, in crayon on a wall, were not appreciated but in everything she later came to write she tried to bring a sense of place, of putting her reader in the environment she created so they could see it and feel it.

Now retired, she has the luxury of writing full time. When she's not at her keyboard she'll have her nose in a book or her Kindle. She'll read anything that catches her interest, from Regency and contemporary romance to thrillers. Victoria loves horses and dogs, daily walks and gentle yoga and especially loves being an author with Books We Love Ltd.

This short and sweet read was a pleasant way to pass a few hours. I was intrigued by the description of the book; after all, I had never read a book set in the West that included belly-dancing...I was definitely ready to see how that all came into play. I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't more of the belly-dancing involved (more on that later), but did appreciate it when it was there.

I have to say, though, that I found the main characters Serena and Randolph to be a bit boring and flat. While separated they just seemed so wooden and bland. I liked them more together, which unfortunately didn't happen until the end of the book. I will say that I liked how the author portrayed their love for one another. Each loves the other but is unaware of that love. Serena desperately wants children and is saddened that Randolph has shown her with his actions that he does not When it is revealed why Randolph doesn't want a family, it is both heartbreaking as well as revealing. I was glad for at least this aspect of their relationship because it added another, much needed, dimension to both their characters.

For me this story was driven by the secondary characters, who carried far more personality than the hero and heroine. I loved the brothel owner who came to Serena's aid when she found herself stuck in Bandit Creek without any funds. I REALLY loved the old Chinese man who was more wise and crafty than anyone cared to give him credit for. These people made the story what it was and gave Bandit Creek a dose of charm and character. The villain (whose name I won't reveal) was also colorful as well, even if he was a bit cliche.

My favorite part was the ending, when the two are reunited. It was sweet and charming and had a happily ever after as all good romances should.

"Always a Lady" is a charming Novela set in the fictional town of Bandit Creek, a brainchild of Carla Roma and her multiple collaborators. The town of Bandit Creek is nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains of Montana. Here you'll meet fascinating residents, learn about the buried town at the bottom of nearby Lost Lake and discover a world of intrigue and excitement. The stories range the years from 1867 to the present, covering all genres and sexual ratings.
"Always a Lady" is a historical fiction about belly dancing in the old west. Yes, belly dancing. A different idea for me. I loved the women of Bandit Creek, the feisty bordello owner, Lorelei Sutton, and Maggie O'Connor, the bakery owner. These two women and Lady Serena turned a difficult circumstance into something remarkable. This was a great introduction to Bandit Creek, but way too short for a story unto its self. I really wanted more from this story. I want to know more. I really wanted more background information on Lord and Lady Serena, more about the town, more about why they were there.
However, all that said, for a novella and the length that it was, it enjoyed the light and frothy read. I give it 4 out of 5 clouds for the category of novela.

This turn of the century historical tale takes the reader to Bandit Creek, Montana and combines mystery and romance with a well-plotted engaging story that satisfies the reader on every page.

Impatient to be re-united with her husband Randolph, Lady Serena Buxton follows him to Bandit Creek, where he has interests in a gold mining operation. But, on her arrival, she is horrified to find that Randolph is missing and presumed dead.

Serena has her doubts that Randolph is truly gone. She is suspicious of the mine manager and is aware the sheriff is keeping an eye on her. She is also practically penniless. The bank manager's refusal to allow her access to her husband's funds compounds her problem and is only the first of many obstacles this endearing character must confront. Her one talent is totally unexpected but with the help of two local women she exploits it to the best of her ability to make ends meet until she can find the truth about what has happened to her husband.

When Lady Serena Buxton arrives in Bandit Creek, she learns that her husband has been missing for ten days and no one knows what happened to him. Serena fails to convince the local banker that she is indeed Randolph's wife and finds herself in a financial bind.

With the prospect of being tossed out of her husband's hotel room at the end of the month, Serena devises a plan to raise funds while watching for any clue to her husband's whereabouts. She cannot bring herself to believe the man she dearly loves is dead, but is this simply wishful thinking on her part?

Ms. Chatham weaves a charming historical tale filled with believable characters, suspense, mystery and romance that will keep you turning the pages until the very end.

If you like historical romances you will like this one! The characters are likeable and believable. I found myself identifying with the female characters and what their lives might have been like back then. So different to our modern society. Having said that, the characters were so strong and vibrant that I felt myself drawn into their world. I was sad to see the story end and look forward to the next edition of adventure with Serena and her husband. (He was only involved in the last few chapters so can't wait to see his character expand and grow along with his charming wife). Victoria Chatham has a long career ahead of her if she keeps on writing so convincingly of adventure and romance in historical settings. I give it a big thumbs up. A "jolly good read"!
