A 5x8", signed paperback copy of my novel, Gilded Dreams.

Yes, it's true: I've written a novel! Please read the full description, continued below the back cover copy.
Courtesans, 1892 New York, a seductive rake, witty banter, love scenes in libraries and carriages, a mysterious house, and a séance. Rich in historical details, Gilded Dreams is a tale of a young woman making her way in the world on the cusp of the twentieth century.
From the back cover:

A courtesan is at ease in every social situation.
She is both interested and interesting.
She maintains an air of mystery.
And above all else, a courtesan must never fall in love….

Fleeing an arranged marriage to a local repugnant in her small hometown, Ava Richards arrives in glamorous New York City at the height of the Gilded Age with one goal in mind: to take control of her own destiny. A dear childhood friend, and now the most desired courtesan of the city, Gabrielle Lyons takes Ava under her wing and teaches her everything she needs to know to one day replace Gabrielle.
Ava spends six months studying art, history, French, dance, and anything else Gabrielle feels a courtesan must know. But an unexpected midnight encounter in a library with a strange man suddenly puts Ava on a very different path.
Declan Aldridge is a dashing, witty, scion to an old New York family- and he tempts Ava in a way no other man ever has. Stolen moments, secret outings together, and heated looks tell Ava that there may be more than friendship brewing between them. But a man like Declan will one day settle down with a lovely wife, not with a courtesan.
Can she fall for the consummate bachelor and not get her heart broken? Or should she put her childish fantasies aside and follow the path she’s already set on: in control of her own destiny but never having the man she loves?
***
So, how steamy is it? Well, it isn't erotica, but it's not for children, either. Feedback has ranged from calling it a "very sexy book" to "that's IT?!". Like most things in life, it will come down to your personal belief system. What I can say with certainty is that it's a slow-burn historical romance set in the Gilded Age, populated with adults doing adult things.

Please let me know who you would like me to personalize this to in the Note to Seller when checking out.

    I just used my pendulum for the 1st time and I had such an emotional connection with it, I started crying. This piece is so special to me! I bought this pendulum for a purpose, when seeking out a pendulum, this one stopped me in my tracks! I didn't see a price tag, I just saw a connection. I also received a thank you note with butterflies all over. Butterflies are my daughter's way of saying hi while in heaven. The beautiful pendulum board was packed in a beautiful velvet bag of it's own, as was the pendulum! I can't believe how amazing of a connection I have to this pendulum and I really love the Thank You note! You are most welcome! Blessed Be!

    With a mix up in this order, I discovered a shop that really puts the customer first. She responded right away with a shipping label for the return and when she learned I didn't have a printer and needed to go elsewhere to get the label. She sent the correct earrings with the label included before I returned the incorrect ones!

    The earrings have a beautiful grey cat's eye moonstone with wonderful silver work. These are a gift worth giving.
