"Best Western of the year..." ~Miz Love Loves Books.
From the Author
Quincy's Woman evolved from Lucy's diary. Although I didn't intend the story to be told as a narrative, Lucy's behavior sometimes irritated me so much, I had to surrender control and let her continue in her own voice.
I feared I might emasculate my hero using this technique but, as it turned out, I didn't need to worry about Ambrose Quince. Lucy's authoritarian, hard-headed,over-worked, land-poor husband spoke quite well through his actions
I knew at the beginning of the book, these two people, both stubborn and worlds apart in background, were meant for each other. The mission became keeping Lucy from becoming a whiny, weak Nellie, and Ambrose from being an overbearing, obnoxious male.
Wow. I had no idea the magnitude or complexity of the task. But, I promised Lucy and Ambrose (and myself) that I would be honest in creating their personalities and as historically accurate as possible when describing their actions.
Their story continues in Intimate Strangers,the EPIC AWARD winner of Best Western & Best Erotic Western in 2010.
