Shivers of delight raced through Cornelia Rose's entire body as she thought, Stroll Flirtation Walk with my escort, unchaperoned? How could this be permitted, much less condoned?
"This is a beautiful story and the author brings to life a period of history with its traits and way of life.... Flirtation on the Hudson is real; a narrative that features elaborately developed characters and adventures that will keep readers entertained. JF Collen combines humor and wit in a work that is hugely entertaining. I enjoyed every bit of this story." ~ Readers' Favorite Book Reviews, Christian Sia (5 STARS)
Cornelia Rose decides early in life, almost instinctively, not to allow anyone to limit her to the few choices available to women in New York in the 1850s. Marry well and become a proper lady—is that all I can do? She surreptitiously pursues learning 'not meant for young ladies,' and begins the journey to become a midwife.
Flirtatious and sexy, Cornelia attracts suitors everywhere she goes. Flooded with invitations after her 'unofficial' debut, her courtships take a dramatic turn when invited to the West Point Military Academy as the guest of a cadet. Will her romantic escapades compromise her choices? Who will decide her future?
EVOLVED PUBLISHING PRESENTS a journey back in time to the 1800s, from New York society and the West Point Military Academy, to the Old West pioneering spirit, as one woman seeks fulfillment in her life. [DRM-Free]

About the Author
Jane Frances Collen has spent the last umpteen years practicing as a lawyer – but don’t hold that against her! She has made a career of protecting Intellectual Property, but at heart always wanted to be writing novels instead of legal briefs. She has written award-winning children’s books, “The Enjella® Adventure Series,” using fantasy as a vehicle for discussing the real world problems of children. She has tried to use her talent for storytelling for good instead of evil.
But her real love is history. One of her many hobbies is traveling to historical sites around the world and reading the biographies of the people who affected these places. Her books depict modern dilemmas in historical settings, with a touch of humor. Since only one of her parents had a sense of humor, however, Jane feels she is only half as funny as she should be.
Much to her husband’s dismay, they still live in New York.
