Editorial Reviews


"Complex characters, a rich and accurate history of  New Orleans, love stories that were intricate, desperate and forbidden, had me reading this book well into the night." -Rosette, Literati Literature Lovers"This story has it all: adventure, romance, intrigue, mystery and great storytelling." -Historical Romance Review

"In this book and the others, you feel transported back in time and to an entirely new and strange place. As you follow the lives of the main characters, you also feel that you are truly experiencing their challenges, setbacks, and triumphs. Hughes' is a seriously talented author--" Dorothy Wiley, best-selling author of the American Wilderness Series

From the Back Cover

"Once again Amanda Hughes splashes the pages with gritty adventure and love stories about audacious women in the 18th and 19th Century. Her page-turning tales will keep you on the edge of your seat as you take wild rides through passionate and dazzling periods of history."It is a life built on secrets, lust, and lies, and Sydnee Sauveterre is at the center of the charade. Used as a source of income at a stand on the Natchez Trace, Sydnee escapes to start a new life in Louisiana. Gifted with visions and a knowledge of Hoodoo, she must find her way through the quagmire of danger and deceit that is 19th Century New Orleans. She bands together with four friends to create an illusion within the elegant, high society of the Louisiana Creole. It is a risky charade meant to fulfill all of their secret desires, and Sydnee gambles everything, including love, to lead this double life.

Bestselling and award-winning author, Amanda Hughes is a "Walter Mitty", spending more time in heroic daydreams than the real world. At last, she found an outlet writing adventures about bold women through the centuries.

Amanda is a graduate of the University of Minnesota, and when she isn't off tilting windmills, she lives and writes in Minnesota. Don't miss these page-turning novels for readers who like historical fiction with a just bit of a love story. All of her books are stand-alone and can be read in any order.
