More About the Author

New York Times and USA Today best selling author, Heather Graham was born somewhere in Europe and kidnapped by gypsies when she was a small child. She went on to join the Romanian circus as a trapeze artist and lion tamer. When the circus came to South Florida, she stayed, discovering that she preferred to be a shark and gator trainer.

Not really.

Heather is the child of Scottish and Irish immigrants who met and married in Chicago, and moved to South Florida, where she has spent her life. (She has, at least, been to the Russian circus in Moscow, where she wished she was one of the incredibly talented and coordinated trapeze artists.) She majored in theater arts at the University of South Florida. After a stint of several years in dinner theater, back-up vocals, and bartending, she stayed home after the birth of her third child and began to write. Her first book was with Dell, and since then, she has written over one hundred and fifty novels and novellas including category, suspense, historical romance, vampire fiction, time travel, occult, horror, and Christmas family fare.

She is pleased to have been published in approximately twenty-five languages, and has had over seventy-five million books in print. She has been honored with awards from Walden Books, B. Dalton, Georgia Romance Writers, Affaire de Coeur, Romantic Times, the Lifetime Achievement Award from RWA and more. Heather has also become the proud recipient of the Silver Bullet from Thriller Writers. Heather has had books selected for the Doubleday Book Club and the Literary Guild, and has been quoted, interviewed, or featured in such publications as The Nation, Redbook, Mystery Book Club, People and USA Today and appeared on many newscasts including Today, Entertainment Tonight and local television.

Heather loves travel and anything that has to do with the water, and is a certified scuba diver. She also loves ballroom dancing. Each year she hosts the Vampire Ball and Dinner theater at the RT convention raising money for the Pediatric Aids Society and in 2006 she hosted the first Writers for New Orleans Workshop to benefit the stricken Gulf region. She is also the founder of "The Slush Pile Players", presenting something that's almost like entertainment for various conferences and benefits. Married since high school graduation and the mother of five, her greatest love in life remains her family, but she also believes her career has been an incredible gift, and she is grateful every day to be doing something that she loves so very much for a living.

I am a Pamunkey Indian and I wish to commend Ms. Graham for her research and correct use of the Tribe in her book. This is the ONLY book I have ever seen that uses the Tribe name and the history of our people. We are the forgotten tribe. I love to read historical romances and this is one of the best I have ever read. I had to buy the book again as my last copy began to fall apart from my constant rereading of it.

I read this for the first time as a teenager--pilfered it from the paperbacks section of the library, actually. As a hormone-ruled young man confused about his sexuality and fascinated by the dangerous sensuality of Jamie Cameron, I really enjoyed the book as a teen. Now, over a decade later, I picked up a new copy of the book and found myself shaking my head in annoyance over the same character I'd found so fascinating. Overall the story lacks in many areas, but it's the relationship between Jassy and Jamie that baffles me. Their conversations are unrealistic (and that's after the typical suspension of disbelief one wields when diving into historical romance) and utterly lacking in any flow or chemistry, and Jamie is pointlessly cruel and stubborn in ways that do nothing to flesh out his character. You don't expect romance-novel males to be realistic; that's part of the fun. They're a fantasy. I just can't imagine Jamie Cameron as anyone's ideal fantasy, when he offers very little to make him sympathetic--and very little to make him believably strong and powerful other than his own wanking on about how he takes what he wants and does what he wants. Any compassion or kindness that he shows in an effort to make him sympathetic to the reader just comes off as a sneering, smirking game to toy with Jassy even more. He displays little to no remorse when it's demonstrated that his treatment of her, in many cases, is wholly unjustified.Read more ›

This was one of the first romance novels I had ever read. The first time i read it...I thought no book could ever come close. That was about 4 years ago...the other day I went back and read it again. I was expecting myself to be dissapointed...your tastes change. But the book was exactly the same. I still loved it! The characters...the settings...the story...like nothing I've ever read. I've told all my friends about this book, they all loved it. And I just had to write an online review! So if you're even slightly interested...do buy this book. You won't regret it.

This is the first in the North American Women trilogy which is a part of the Cameron Saga series (see list below). I highly recommend these romances. They were the ones that led me to become a huge fan of Heather Graham's work. This is the first book in the series and I loved it.

This is Jasmine's ("Jassy") and Jamie's story, which begins in 17th century England and leads to the New World (Virginia). Jassy has had a hard life as the bastard daughter of a dead nobleman whose mother dies for lack of medical attention. She learns of her connections to a noble family and they take her in as little better than a servant. There she meets the dark Lord Cameron who wants to marry her because she reminds him of his "wild Virginia" he has come to love and where he is building a life. Jassy thinks she is in love with his friend the charming and fair Robert, but Robert has other plans. Jassy doesn't want to die in starvation and poverty like her mother, so she consents to wed Jamie.

Jamie Cameron wants the beautiful Jassy...she makes his blood boil. He thinks she will be strong enough to endure the life in the wilderness where there are still Indians and pressures just to survive. But Jamie does not tell Jassy that he is taking her to the New World; and Jassy longs for the security of Jamie's beautiful manor in England. She does not love Jamie; she is not even sure she likes him. But she is honest and tells him she is marrying him so she will not starve. Can she love a man she hates? Can she forget the fair Robert? Can Jamie love the tavern wench who wants only his wealth? So begins an adventure that is so well told and so well done, I will read it again and again.

Heather Graham's writing is just superb. Her portrait of early America is wonderful.

From the first time Jasmine's eyes met those of Lord Jamie Cameron in a smoky British inn, theirs was the wrong kind of attraction-not gentle,slow,and easy, but hot,hard and all-consuming. The illegitimate daughter of an actess and a duke, Jassy had dreams no man could wrench from her. She'd resist this bold nobleman with all the strength of her soul. But her golden hair, fiery temperament, and indomitable spirit obessed Lord Cameron...and he wanted her with him when he sailed for the new wilderness called Virginia. So he had a bargain for the spit-fire Jassy, one that only a very special woman would dare to make. I loved the story but I got tired of the constant battles and stubborness. These characters could've stood to be alittle less prideful and admitted their true feelings before the last page of the book!
