New novel coming out:The View from Rampart Street

Hi, Friends and Readers,
I'm happy to say that I will be having a new hard-cover novel on the bookshelves at Barnes and noble and other retail outlets, as well as and several other online venues by the end of December or the beginning of January. At this point, I am waiting for the Proof Book, which will be identical to the real book except no cover. I am to read through it for the final time and tell my publisher, Eloquent Books, if there are any errors. When I return it to them, it will only be 60 days before the book is on the bookshelves.It is called THE VIEW FROM RAMPART STREET, and it is a historical romance set in New Orleans in the 1840s. My heroine is one of many beautiful young Quadroon girls who are trained all their lives to be placees, permanent concubines to wealthy white Creole gentlemen. In return for their favors, they are given a house, generally on Rampart Street, furniture, and a life of luxury. But she detests placage and wishesto be an actress and live a moral life. She falls in love with a young Creole who also thinks she should marry. Her father has other plans for her, and the hero must save her from placage, first by fighting a life-threatening battle, then by pursuing her across the continent. If you liked NIGHT JASMINE, you'll love THE VIEW FROM RAMPART STREET. Love, Mary Lou
