Bella's Point - Elizabeth Seckman

Did you know?  The US Secret Service was created in 1865 not in response to the assassination of President Lincoln, but to stop the counterfeiting of US money. It wasn't until 1901 and the assassination of President William McKinley that the Secret Service was ordered by Congress to guard the President. 

Isabella Troy Stanley is a divorced, slave freeing pariah surviving in the shattered post Civil War south the only way a fallen debutante knows how. 
She heads to a Yankee prison and buys herself a husband. 

Jack Byron is the former Troy plantation stable boy and object of young Bella's affection. He rejected her then, and he's still not sold on the idea of marrying her now.  

It’s complicated.

Though to Bella, it’s simple: make Jack love her, marry her, and live happily ever after. The plan seems to least until her secret is revealed.

Elizabeth is a wife, a mom, and a writer. She has four wonderful boys, one dusty house, and three published books to her credit. Feel free to check them out and buy them HERE! Erm, the books, not the kids or the house...though all things in life are negotiable ;)

  1. Thanks for the shout out Mac! You're all sorts of awesome :)

  2. Yeah, that relationship does sound as though it could have complications.

    btw, I know nothing about the secret service but given the name I never expected to.
