A former Information Technology analyst, Lucia now delves into history more than computers. Married to a medical physicist, she lives in South Carolina where romance is a given. Her passion is European travel, history through the Napoleonic era, and anything to do with sailing ships, duels, battles, and love matches. Her characters are alpha males, albeit with problems, and sensual women, feisty but believable for their times. The interactions are erotic, the excitement continuous, with spice spread liberally through history. She hopes you will enjoy both the history and the rich fantasy she employs. This is her seventh book.
