Overview

Spain is in turmoil. In the 17th century, Inquisitor Sarmiento is zealously continuing the Inquisition, ridding Spain of those he considers infidels and also increasing his own land holdings at others' expense. A victim of the Inquisition Isabela and her mother are incarcerated in one of Sarmiento's dungeons. Her father has been killed. She is rescued when Don Carlos, Duque de Malagon, breaks into the castle to rescue his brother. He is too late to help his brother but Don Carlos takes Isabela and her mother to safety. Since he, too, must now flee the Inquisitor's long arm, he and his retinue leave Spain and sail for the New World to face a stark yet lovely land that brings the promise of new beginnings if they can survive the many challenges ahead.

Meet the Author

Gigolo is Jeannine�s twenty-seventh published book. Though she cannot remember ever not making up stories, she never seriously considered writing as a profession while in school. That seemed to be something people in New York did and she lived mostly in New Mexico. Though after a while she did begin sending in manuscripts and receiving rejections. She wrote while she worked in various businesses. She was in banking, an insurance office manager, director of publicity for a university, and a motel manager. Jeannine was born in Wisconsin; lived in Chicago, Illinois; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Tustin, California; San Leandro, California; Seattle, Washington; several other places, and now resides in the state of her birth, Wisconsin. She is the daughter of Henry and Mildred Tyrack, mother of Daniel Michael McGrew and wife of Louis Van Eperen. She and Lou love to travel and often do so. Jeannine loves to include many of the places she�s visited into her stories, and because she�s been there, she knows her settings are authentic. When not traveling or writing, she enjoys reading, needlework, playing Euchre with her friends and trying to play her Casio keyboard.
