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.

For any reader who loves adventure/romance with historical elements, Marsha's books are a must! I loved the earlier books in the series, and this one was a perfect "conclusion" that could be continued if she wanted to write more. This is the first book in the series that truly explores Jonas' character, and Juliet, Gabriel, and the rest of the Dantes make appearances too. The writing and the characters were thoughtful and entertaining--- much better than most books of this genre. The scenes were so vivid that I constantly picture them as if the movie has already been made. Read it in one weekend, could barely put it down!
