Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Ever ask the question, "what if . . . ?" What if this had happened, what if that had happened? The idea for To Cuba With Love came from one of those "what if" questions.
 
While I was researching another storyline at the Amelia Island Historical Museum in Fernandina, Florida, I came across a newspaper article stating that Fernandina's natural deep water port had been the capital of gunrunning ventures to Cuba during that country's long fight for independence from Spain. I thought there had to be a romance story in there somewhere.
 
Shifting gears, I started researching the topic, and found a white paper titled, The Fernandina Filibuster Fiasco in a museum folder of the island's history during the 1890s.
 
The document told of the failure of a gunrunning venture to Cuba financed by Cuban immigrants living in the United States. Three ships had been illegally chartered to send men and war material to Cuba in opposition to the U.S. Neutrality Act of 1794. The venture was discovered and the cargo confiscated before the ships left American waters.
 
Bingo! This was it. What if . . . the cargo had been divided into quarters instead of thirds, and the fourth portion hidden for another stab at delivery? To Cuba With Love grew from that germ of an idea.
 
Bold, dramatic, and dangerous, my illegal mission required the strength of character and the courage of a hero and heroine who were up to the task. So . . . I created Sean Nolan, an honorable, very wealthy, alpha male sea captain facing sure financial ruin, and Samantha Ethridge, a brazen, quick-thinking women's news reporter, stymied by the role of women in her time--the Gilded Age.
 
Drawn together at first by their passion, they learn to work together, to understand each other's personal priorities, and to let go of the lies they've told themselves about what they really want out of life. 

About the Author

Averil Reisman loves to write steamy American-set historical romances of the Gilded Age and Gay Nineties--the late Victorian period during which America's industrial age aristocracy lived like lords and ladies of England. Ever since the PBS series, America's Castles, which focused on the fabulous houses built during this era, she's been fascinated by the life style of America's industrial age barons.

A closet feminist, she admires the brave women of this era who fought for equal voting rights, and who often broke the mold to bring about social change and women's equality. Writing about strong women, and the alpha males who love them, is one of her greatest passions . . . besides her loving husband.

She's always been a writer, having graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism with a JD degree, and spent the bulk of her career writing things other people had assigned. It wasn't until her husband pushed her into trying her hand at writing romance that she discovered the true joy of writing fiction. She now writes what she likes to read--sensual love stories about characters who spark her imagination.

Now empty nesters, Averil and her husband live in a far northwest suburb of Chicago, where the corn still grows down the road and farm stands are plentiful. On a nice day, you might catch her out tending her flowers. But on a nasty day, she can be found indoors at her computer, or reading the next book club selection, or playing Mah Jongg or Canasta.
