Hebby Romanabout this book: The inspiration for TEMPT FORTUNE came to me when I first visited Key West, Florida, a unique place, the southernmost tip of the United States and a location rich in history. I returned to Key West and delved into its exceptional history. For example, most people don't know, per capita, it was the wealthiest town in the United States during the middle of the nineteenth century. This was due to its main occupation: wrecking.
Wreckers were sea captains who earned their living by salvaging the rich cargoes from ships that broke up on the reefs surrounding the Florida Keys.
Key West was also a magnet for Cuban immigration during their war for independence from Spain. As a historical romance author all these elements moved me to write a romance set in this unique location.
TEMPT FORTUNE is special because it features two young women, a runaway bride Cuban beauty and a Key West native, who, meet and become best friends. They're both strong-minded women for their era with separate goals. Along the way, they find love, and this is the story of their intertwined adventures and romances.
I hope you'll enjoy the story of Angelina and Destiny and the men (their heroes) who love them.
