Dissent, Love Vanquishes All, Bk. 2
1571. France is in stasis. The peace struck after the latest War of Religion between Catholics and Protestants (Huguenots) is fragile and desperately needs more support to sustain it. The monarchy proposes a royal wedding joining a Catholic princess to a Huguenot prince as it is seen as the needed bulwark. Negotiations are in the works. All is good. Or so it appears.
On another front, France has fallen far behind other European nations in its quest to expand its empire overseas. Expenditures from civil wars have sapped her coffers, her energy and have stunted her economic dreams.
Could another marriage remedy the problem by mixing religious unity with the possibility of increased commerce?
Enter Awa, the daughter of a visiting, Roman Catholic, Wolof diplomat from the elite ranks of the Jolof Kingdom in West Africa. She embodies the best of her land in her manner and in her education. She is dutiful, proud, and respectful of her family, but after living a portion of her formative years at the French court, she has become outspoken and a tad willful.
Enter Blaise, the nephew of the most powerful leader of the Huguenot faction in the country. An aristocrat. Learned. Traveled. Haunted. Ladies’ man. Rarely sees a sunrise, unless he is going to bed at that hour. He abhors responsibility of any kind. And Catholics.
Two persons of noble lineage. Strangers. Foes. Pawns. Allies? Lovers?
If Awa and Blaise can cease fighting long enough, could their marriage quell domestic unrest, bring riches and stability to France, but most importantly deliver true love to them before the realm implodes over religious matters again? If you crave a sweeping "Old Skool" historical with a twist and a heart, DISSENT is it. Treat yourself!

An herbalist and free woman of color, Kindred Twain and Lelaheo/Cassian Harkness, an Oneida Indian, had been inseparable since childhood, so it was no surprise to anyone when their childhood bond blossomed into love as they grew into adulthood. Neither suspected when they agreed to wait to wed until Lelaheo had completed his medical studies in Europe that they were poised on the eve of the American Revolution. Which will happen, could happen first? Raging battles sure to destroy the region? A bitter man come to settle debts with their benefactor, Dr. Douglas Twain and to rip asunder all he's built? Or will a young, British miss named Adeline determined to tear the couple apart forever, succeed first? Book One in my Love Vanquishes All standalone series.

Why "Diverse Views", the site, and the blog, were created:
Love comes in many forms, ways and styles. Love is diverse, natural, universal and egalitarian. All recognize it and want it. That’s why I like and write romance books. The characters in romance novels never give up on finding love and once they find it, if the object of their affection is not what society deems appropriate, they firmly tell society to “mind your business!” and ask directly, ”Don’t you have something else to be concerned about?” That’s why I pen romance between different kinds of people, hence the name of my site—Diverse Views.
I write historical and paranormal romance. With all types of people.
