“My novel is published! Great summer read!”
Historical romance/mystery based on the true Legend of Beale's Treasure (Bedford VA).
From antebellum Richmond to the Santa Fe Trail, Kyndra and mysterious Tyler Andrews are entangled in danger, adventure, and passion as they search for Kyndra’s brother and a fortune in gold, silver, and jewels. Knowing that Tyler must return to Texas and Kyndra will return to her beloved, inherited Faircliffe Plantation, their love seems doomed from the start. Yet as the clues draw them ever deeper into the mystery of Beale’s Treasure, their passion cannot be denied. The treasure may be lost forever but will Kyndra and Tyler be lost to each other forever or is their love strong enough to keep them together?
