Here’s your opportunity to get my new book FREE. If you like historical fiction with romance, suspense and intriguing portrayals of actual historic people, this book is for you.
Compelling historical fiction about one of the most powerful women in the Americas. Yohl Ik’nal was the first Mayan woman ruler, her visionary powers destined to guide her people through social turmoil and enemy attack as she preserved her dynastic lineage and left her mark on history. Facing betrayal and revenge, her love for her father steeled her will as he trained her for rulership. Dedicating her life to her dynasty and people, she feared no romantic love would ever be hers, but found a surprising and sustaining relationship.
She foresaw times of turmoil coming to her city. Succession to the throne was far from certain, and she vowed to maintain her dynasty. Could she prepare her headstrong daughter for rulership, or help her weak son become a charismatic leader? Her choices would lead to ruin or bring her city to greatness.
Centuries later Francesca, part-Maya archeologist, helps her team at Palenque excavate the royal burial of a crimson skeleton, possibly the first Mayan queen’s tomb ever discovered. She never anticipated how it would impact her life and unravel a web of ancient bonds.
Extensively researched, accurate archeology, historic and fictional characters and an engaging, suspenseful plot.
