About Marsha Canham

Author of 16 Historical Romances and one contemp, my first book, China Rose, was published in 1984. Since then my historical romances have consistently appear on the USA Today list. I have been honored to be the recipient of multiple awards from Romantic Times, including 2 Lifetime Achievement awards, Storyteller of the Year, Medieval of the Year, Swashbuckler of the Year, as well as having been awarded one of a very few five star reviews handed out by Kathe Robin for The Blood of Roses. The Iron Rose was also named as one of the seven best Fiction books of the year by Publishers Weekly.

A print author since the early 80's, it has been truly wonderful to be able to reissue my early books in digital format. Some, like China Rose, Bound by the Heart, and The Wind and the Sea, have not been available to readers for twenty five years. It was The Wind and the Sea, in fact, that inspired Romantic Times to create the category "Swashbuckler of the Year" and it won the very first award.

I write the type of books that I love to read...full of action, drama, intrigue, and of course...romance. I am inspired by the old swashbuckling movies I grew up watching staring the likes of Errol Flynn, Clark Gable, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Randolph Scott, Tyrone Power...bigger than life heroes matched with equally gutsy heroines. I write, in fact, as if there is a movie playing out in my mind and my hope is that readers enjoy what they *see* as much as I do.

Loved all the intrigue and romance on the high seas. I enjoyed the characters and felt the author pulls you in right from the first page. I enjoy all her books and look forward to reading more.

A great read! The many twists and turns in the plot keep the reader guessing who the villain might be. There are definitely a few moments in this where you might tear up on the inside. I started this at 1am (bad idea) and didn't get to sleep until 3am.

The Wind and The of the many Canham classics. I read it years ago and loved it and love it still. Loads of adventure and, of course, wonderful romance.
