Julia: A Romance Enters Part 2 Of RITA Contest:

Julia: A Romance was entered in the RITA Contest for best short historical romance. It has entered part 2 of that contest.

Julia has every reason to wish that she had not been born the daughter of a Roman senator during the Roman Civil Wars of Marius and Sulla. Her father, Rufus, is trying to escape the proscription lists and save his life by betrothing his only daughter in marriage to Marcus Sisenna.

Marcus Sisenna is the right hand man of Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix, one of the leading men of Rome of the day. Rufus needs his armies and the protection both Sulla and Sisenna can provide.

But Julia does not want to marry a man who has already had five wives and who is just marrying her for her father’s money and estates. She does not want to be added to his collection of trophies. Julia wants personal happiness despite the time period into which she has been born.

Her father thinks only of keeping his wealth and estates together. Her divorced mother is interested only in her own lovers. To whom shall Julia turn for assistance? The answer may surprise you. For it is obviously just the opposite of what the desperate Julia might expect.

Will Dora Benley Attend The RWA Conference In Denver?

Dora Benley plans to sign up for the RWA conference in Denver next month in February. But will she be able to attend? She would be coming either from Yellowstone or from Rome. But either way, it begins to appear dubious whether it will be possible in light of the Disney invasion of hotel rooms of its guests.

The RWA Conference will be held at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel. This is another mega high rise building, perfect for snipers a la Las Vegas. So if the Disney notion of handling things spreads and becomes popular, one will assume that the management of the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel will start to invade the rooms of its guests even during a conference.

Dora had planned to bring her RITA contest entry young adult thriller novel, Silver Wolf Moon. Silver Wolf Moon and Dora may have to go somewhere else instead. Should Dora stay longer in Yellowstone or Rome?

Darcy Devon can’t take it anymore. Her millionaire parents won’t stop bugging her to date Randolph King, the son of an English client of theirs. She runs away to live in her grandparents’ house in the wilds of Montana. But no sooner does she unpack her suitcase than she notices that somebody who looks like an uncouth madman is following her. Nobody knows who he is. When she goes swimming, somebody is watching her. When she goes to bed, somebody is outside looking in. Wolves howl at midnight. She looks up at the sky and sees a black moon and shivers. What does this strange dude want with her? Is he escaped from an asylum, or is it something else?

The young adult romantic thriller Silver Wolf Moon was originally published in German by Cora Verlag, Harper Collins Germany, as Silver Wolf. If you liked Silver Wolf Moon you will enjoy other young adult thrillers by Dora Benley such as Rose Red, Murder in Jasper, Mary’s Gone, Latin Lessons, and Dark 3: Special Edition.
