San Diego, CA, March 10, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Power, passion and deception rule in Arlette Gaffrey’s latest novel, Behind the Columns, published by Outskirts Press. Set in New Orleans and New York in the 1840’s, this suspenseful historical romance tells a tale of two lovers who cannot deny their emotions for each other despite their impossible circumstances.
In her quest to save her grandfather’s beautiful New Orleans plantation from the auction block in order to satisfy his heavy gambling debts, Desiree Bordeax find herself wooed by two strikingly different men. Phillipe Jaunet is a cruel man who lusts after the plantation more than after Desiree while Lance Van Buren is a handsome and wealthy New Yorker seemingly more interested in Desiree herself.
Yet Desiree’s heart still belongs to the man who had broken her heart and married someone else. Pulled in a million different directions, her life complicated by strange circumstance and unfortunate misunderstanding, Desiree must work out for herself the turbulent emotions in her heart.
Author Gaffrey, speaking about her own writing, acknowledges the ability of her stories to take on a life of their own. “My characters choose their own names,” the author says. “And, if I don’t give them the names they want, the story simply stops until they get their way.”
Behind the Columns is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more. Arlette’s first book A World Of His Own-In The Land Of The Creoles is also available.
