New Book Release: Eternal Deception

Please join me in congratulating Jane Steen on the publication of Eternal Deception, the second novel in her House of Closed Doors series. I had the pleasure of working with Jane on a copyedit of this tale of a young woman's determination to remain in control of her own destiny in the nineteenth century. Here's the book description:

Love or independence? Few choices remain for Nell and her new family on the Kansas frontier… 

Kansas, 1872. Unwed mother Nell Lillington hopes to support her daughter Sarah and friend Tess by working as a seamstress in an isolated seminary. When her only ally among the seminary's leaders dies, she must choose between returning to her old life in Chicago and remaining in charge of her destiny. 

As her talent as a dressmaker begins to win her commissions, Nell attracts the attention of two suitors: Reiner Lehmann, a wealthy senior student, and Judah Poulton, an impoverished professor. Shocking news from back home and another death at the seminary press Nell to make her decision. A disastrous winter journey, a treacherous game, and an impossible love could finally wrest control of Nell's life out of her hands for good. 

Eternal Deception is the second book in a series of engrossing historical fiction novels. If you like intriguing mystery, charming romance, and surprises you won't see coming, you'll love this story of one woman's battle for herself on the nineteenth century frontier. 

Eternal Deception is available now in ebook format on Amazon, and the print edition will be available soon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and check out Jane's website.
