I write award-winning historical romance about pirates, privateers, smugglers and the occasional possum.

Daughter of Fortune - Carla Kelly Die-hard Kelly fans may want to read this, her first published novel, but it's not like her later romance novels. The setting is interesting--we usually don't find historical fiction set in the 17th C. US Southwest--but it's more women's fiction or straight historical than it is a historical romance. Nonetheless, there is a love story in it, with the kind of flawed characters that helped Kelly establish her reputation in Regencies. There are also scenes of extremely graphic violence which are integral to the story, but may not be what the reader is expecting.
