Mary Adair

Biography

Author Mary Adair lives in Southeast Oklahoma. She writes Native American Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Young Adult and Inspirational Fiction.

Mary Adair has three books published, Passion’s Vision, Passion’s Price and Captive Spirits. All three books are available at Amazon in print as well as Kindle. Both Passion’s Vision and Passion’s Price have hit Amazon bestseller in their category. Both books are Native American Historical Romance.

Mary did extensive research on several Native American tribes. One of her many sources is a book written in the 1700s by one of her husband’s ancestors. Her first book is PASSION’S VISION, a story filled with romance, excitement and danger. This story features James Fitzgerald, an agent in the court of King George II and New Moon, sister to Chief Dancing Cloud. Passion’s Vision won the Betty Hendrck’s award.

Mary’s other works are PASSION’S PRICE, the story continued with James and New Moon’S daughter, Golden Dawn. PASSION’S PRICE is a poignant love story with a twist of humor. It is a next generation story filled with adventure and determination as well as self-realization and of course Romance.

Mary’s newest release, CAPTIVE SPIRITS is a beginning to a Young Adult Fantasy series that also can be enjoyed by all adults.

Mary believes that along with weaving a story into a written work comes a responsibility. She feels authors should express themselves. That is what being an artist and author is all about. But with that, she keeps in mind that words are sharper than any two-edged sword. She chooses not to write stories that generate hate, or foster desperation or pain for her readers. She believes there is already enough pain and desperation in the world. Mary thrives to write stories filled with hope, triumph and adventure. That is not to say her character’s lives are a walk through the park. You can, however, expect a happy ending.

Mary hopes all of you eternal optimist, hopeless romantics, and lovers of adventure, from whom all good things are born, will pick up a copy of one of her books and enjoy the ride through the story she creates.

Author’s quote: An author’s Passion is realized when that first novel becomes published and that first fan writes a reader’s review to share how much she enjoyed the book. How an author fulfills the Vision is all in the journey that follows.

Smashwords Interview

Question: You write Romance. Do you think of yourself as a Romantic?
I am a romantic. I do not believe that romance is an extravagant story or account that has no basis in fact. A story can be written in such a way as to be totally unbelievable…and I love those stories too. But as for Romance, I think romance is the best part of mankind. It sees what is possible and gives us the courage to reach out. It gives us empathy. It gives us the strength to forgive and to encourage others. I don’t see romance as only soft. I see it as strong, forgiving, and hopeful. I see it as morality and the strength to live by it.
What was the first book you read?
Mary: The first Romance novel I ever read was The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss. I was hooked! I loved the characters, the setting, the time in history, her style of writing, just everything about the story. I enjoy writing stories that are set in history and are as historically correct to the time period as I can get. I don’t want my story to be unbelievable; I want it to be moving and inspiring. I love a strong male character that is not afraid to admit what he feels at least to himself. I also enjoy strong female characters. Never have I believed women to be weak.

Smashwords book reviews by Mary Adair

  • High Stakes Bride, Men of Stone Mountain Book 2 on Oct. 14, 2012

    High Stakes Bride: Book two of The Men of Stone Mountain Series. Another great story from one of my favorite authors. A book written by Caroline Clemens has never disappointed me. The characters in this story are as believable as they are lovable. The story starts off with suspense when you are introduced to Mary Alice Price. Mary Alice is struggling to avoid detection, as she attempts to escape her evil stepbrothers. The two scoundrels lost her in a high-stakes gambling deal to a man as evil as the devil himself. Her life depends on being able to escape Texas and reach Atlanta where she hopes to start a new life. Zach Stone has just been jilted again, and this time by a mail order bride. He no longer trusts women outside his own family. He dreads having to go back home and let his brothers know that he once again has failed to bring home a wife. Zach is surprise to discover the young boy stealing food from his campfire is actually a woman. She is a wounded, cold, frightened and showing sign of becoming quite ill. She needs his help and she could help him in return. They strike a deal and the resulting adventure is an enduring story you would not want to miss. I give this story Five Stars for adventure, heartwarming romance and a thoroughly happy ending. Mary Adair
  • Tabitha's Journey: A Stone Mountain Novella on June 04, 2013

    Tabitha’s Journey by Caroline Clemmons Tabitha’s father has died. The reading of his will only compounds Tabitha’s pain and confusion. After years of working at the family business and keeping it running to spite her father’s and brother’s total inability to manage a business, everything is left to her brother, David. Worse, according to her father’s will, her brother is her guardian until her thirtieth birthday. Tabitha is trapped! The inheritance her beloved grandmother and mother intended to go to her is placed out of reach as long as her brother is her guardian and, as her guardian, he is forcing her into marriage to his wife’s brother. William, her brother-in-law, is a cruel man that is determined to ravish her to insure the marriage takes place. He has attempted to take her once and is threatening to complete the evil deed if she does not comply to his and her brother‘s wishes. Her own brother threatens to commit her to an asylum if she causes any trouble and refuses the marriage. Tabitha’s best friend, Priscilla, accepted a proposal for marriage as a mail order bride but now wants out of the arrangement. Her best friend’s situation offers a perfect way out for Tabitha. Or so she thought. This is a delightful book. It takes the reader back to Raedford Springs, the home of the The Men From Stone Mountain series. Tabitha’s arrival is anything but quiet and unassuming. Her attraction to Tobias, her intended husband, is strong. His strong feeling of being “passed off” is obvious. The questions are, will Tobias Baldwin overcome his feelings of rejection and give in to the passion of his desires? Will Tabitha’s brother and lecherous brother-in-law find Tabitha before Tobias figures out what he wants? I give Tabitha’s Journey 5 stars. I loved this book. I love reading stories that bring my favorite characters from other books together. Tabitha is full of spunk, imagination and has a heart of gold. Tobias is a big bear of a man. In fact, his nickname is Bear. His verbal responses to Tabitha seem cold at first, but I was not fooled and neither was Tabitha. He is a big, kind, bear of a man that can take care of business. Together, they are well suited and I hope to read about them again in another story.
