ARROYO BLANCO AND CIUDAD REAL
Don’t let other people decide who you are.
In her novels, each of the protagonists struggles to define her own identity and desires, and reconcile that with what’s expected of them as women in 1911, as members of their respective families and as people who hold particular places in society. It won’t be easy, but each heroine will find a way to live their lives – and find love! – on their own terms.
The Arroyo Blanco and Ciudad Real series are historical romances set in a fictional island in the Spanish Caribbean, neighbor to Puerto Rico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic. It shares those islands’ Hispanic heritage, as well as some of their customs.
Lydia’s latest is THE INFAMOUS MISS RODRIGUEZ, a Ciudad Real novella. In it Graciela Rodriguez is determined to break her engagement to the city’s most eligible bachelor, even if it means ruining her reputation. Vicente Aguirre has been hired by her aunt to keep her wayward niece from damaging the family name along with her future. When her charms prove irresistible, will he too fall under her spell?
The Latina Book Club wishes you a Happy Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day and many hours of joyful reading.
