Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When offered the opportunity to write a pre-quel to Book Four, THE DUKE'S MAGNIFICENT BASTARD, my  challenge was to portray Thorn Wick, our hero, as the native half-breed on the island of Barbados where he lived with his mother for seventeen years.
He endured the rock-hauling malice of the native boys who made his life a torment until one day, an unknown older boy, showed him the art of self-defense with a knife. Cornered by a group prepared to unman him, he establishes himself as a fighter who will no longer endure harassment. An unfortunate event in such defense haunts him during his young life. 
His mother dies in his arms, and extracts a promise from him to visit the father he never knew existed. At seventeen, he sets across the ocean to mean the Duke of Althorn who is now aware of his illegitimate son. In England, he is labeled a bastard even though his father accepts him. 
Thorn has left his mother's world to enter his father's domain, but in his heart, one foot is in Barbados and the other is in London, England. This story shows the character of the young boy who becomes a man and his inner turmoil, hopes and desire for final acceptance on his own merit.
Of course, to complicate matters, the duke's ward, Alicia holds a deep affection for Thorn, who finds himself in the unusual position  of protector of her virtue, all the while, wanting her from afar. Needless to say, Alicia continues to tempt him with her wiles.

About the Author

Fall in love with Romance all over again 
with author Sandra Masters
From a humble beginning in Newark, New Jersey, a short stay at a convent in Morristown, N.J. at the age of fourteen, Sandra Masters retired from a fantastic career for a play broadcasting company in Carlsbad, California, and settled in the rural foothills of the Sierras of Yosemite National Park with her husband, Ron, and two dogs, Silky and Sophie. She traded in the Board Rooms for the Ballrooms of the Regency Era and never looked back.
She wrote her first book at the age of thirteen and since then she's always traveled with pen and notebook for her writing experiences. It's been the journey of ten thousand miles with a few steps left to go. She deemed it a pleasure to leave the corporate world behind decades later.
 
Nothing she expected,but everything she desired. Her business card lists her occupation as Living The Dream.
