MAGDALENA, as determined as she is beautiful, shuns a royal court to set out across the Ocean Sea to the end of the known world in search of the man she has loved since childhood—the golden Aaron Torres, heir of a great Andalusian house. He is her lawfully betrothed and she has his father’s signet ring to prove it. When she finds him, will he or nil he, she will claim him as her own.

AARON, as Cristobal Colon’s Fleet Marshal, has faced down mutinous sailors and survived a religious persecution that ravaged his family. Now, in the Indies, as Governor Colon’s personal envoy to the proud Taino Indians, he faces even greater struggles. He fights against “civilized” gentlemen who would enslave a peaceful people and destroy their exotic culture.

But Aaron Torres is about to endure another siege, one in which his deadly sword will hold no sway. Magdalena Valdez is come to PARADISE!

About the Author

SHIRL HENKE lives in St. Louis, where she enjoys gardening in her yard and greenhouse, cooking holiday dinners for her family and listening to jazz. In addition to helping brainstorm and research her books, her husband Jim is “lion tamer” for their two wild young tomcats, Pewter and Sooty, geniuses at pillage and destruction.
Shirl has been a RITA finalist twice, and has won three Career Achievement Awards, an Industry Award and three Reviewer’s Choice Awards from Romantic Times.
“I wrote my first twenty-two novels in longhand with a ballpoint pen—it’s hard to get good quills these days,” she says. Dragged into the twenty-first century by her son Matt, a telecommunication specialist, Shirl now uses two of those “devil machines.” Another troglodyte bites the dust. Please visit her at
