Madison needs a short hiatus, to rest and to write. So, the first chapter of my next book will be posted on Tuesday, January 10, 2012. Here's a little teaser to tide you over.
A CLOUD OF HAWTHORNE
At Edith Hornbrook’s urging, Henley Hornbrook III presents the wealthy local beauty, Proberta Gerber, with a brilliant five caret yellow diamond ring.
Unremarkably handsome, and seemingly dull, inexperienced Henley sets out to learn the ways of women before his impending marriage. He discovers Rosetta, the exotic gypsy who lives in the forest near the Hornbrook estate, whose lessons in lust soon blossom into a torrid romance. So, when Henley’s cousin, the dashing Wesley Arbuckle, arrives for a visit, he is greeted by Proberta with more than an open heart.
However, Henley’s growing suspicion of his mother’s meddling in his romantic affairs soon becomes clear, and with the help of Rosetta, and some clever manipulation, the cards held in the hand of destiny are revealed.
