It's not every day that a novel filled with romance, adventure, piracy, and history captures the attention of those who seek out the historical romance genre. Karen Fay's main character, Abigail, captures the reader's heart instantly. After the death of her husband, Abigail sets off for Boston. Her brief partnership in a shipping company quickly turns into imprisonment in London for the company's debts, and she is sold as a servant. An unexpected but passionate love affair develops, and she pays her debts and is set free. But she is left with nothing and must find her way through town alone. Unsurprisingly, that's a journey with a whirlwind of complications.
Abby is forced to marry a Scot after humiliating a woman of royalty. Days after a forced marriage is consummated, she is captured by Black Dog and a ship of pirates and taken out to sea to locate her grandfather's treasure. The man who truly loves her makes a desperate attempt to rescue her and the adventure is brought to a thrilling, yet satisfying, conclusion. With an ending fit for the most dedicated romance reader, Karen's novel does what it is supposed to do: it softens the blows of real life woes. And that's a compliment.

Women authors are more likely to ask questions. Case in point: the last two days, out of the 140 questions that I saw our author support team answer, 100 came from women authors. Nothing wrong with that, keep those questions coming. But as I disclosed the other day, 80 pct of our time is demanded by 20 pct of our authors. They are predominantly women.
