California! For two escaped convicts fleeing the burning city of Richmond at the end of the Civil War, California offers a new start and the hope for a better future. After arriving by ship in Aspinwall, Panama, Clara Adcock and Capt. James Hamilton must cross the country to meet the SS Golden City, bound for San Francisco. It was supposed to have been a five-hour train ride across the isthmus, a civilized way to travel. Until everything went wrong.
Jungle Fever follows the ongoing saga of Clara Adcock and Capt. James Hamilton as they struggle to build a new life in the aftermath of the “War of Northern Aggression.”
I’m a writer of steamy historical romance whose books include The Gentlemen’s Club: A Clara Adcock Civil War Romance (in English and in Spanish), and Jungle Fever: A Clara Adcock Steamy Romance. Originally from California, for the past two decades I’ve lived in North Carolina and Georgia. My hobbies include studying the Civil War or, as my mother used to call it, “The Late Unpleasantness.” Thanks for checking out my work. Appreciated!
