Overview

n the spring of 1788, Renn Arelia Sheridan stares up at a portrait of the First Duchess of Chippenham, and the painting clearly shows an emerald brooch on her gown. Renn Arelia's hand slips into her pocket fingering the brooch her deceased mother gave her.

Her nape prickles with caution. This piece is what they sought when they ransacked her parent's manor and forced her to London, betrothing her to marry a French Marques.

The proverbial straw, the significance of her mother's locket, embroils Renn Arelia. She escapes the ancestral estate, hoping the heirloom is a blessing and not a curse.

Her quest is a teaching position at an orphanage in Gravesend. Spiraling from one disaster to the next, she deceitfully gains passage aboard a ship and tumbles into the circle of a devil captain, forever changing the course of her life.

She has no idea the locket will define her as though it is a certificate of birth.

About the Author

Karen Dean Benson decided to try her hand at writing romantic historical fiction somewhere between diapering her first child and kissing the sixth off to college. The Dominican Nuns in the Detroit, Michigan parochial system attempted to teach her how to diagram a sentence. Armed with this knowledge and her love of Jane Austen and Kathleen Woodiwiss’ memorable tales, she pounded out stories on a Royal Portable typewriter that bounced merrily across the desktop. The lusty voices of children in the background increased her fervor.

After graduating from Northwood University, she spent the next years in the woodlands of Northern Michigan relishing the beauty of the Au Sable River as her family grew. She swapped out the Royal for a thirty-pound Olympic that stayed put when typing.

Karen loves research, history, and tales of convoluted lives. She weaves all this against the backdrop of a by-gone era and tosses in plenty of problems to solve. Her novels involve young women blundering through the social constraints of the 18th and 19th Centuries.

She and husband Charlie divide their time between golf courses in Michigan and Florida.
