Mistress of Mogador
Action! Adventure! Romance! Historical love story of passion and intrigue. Danger in a world of secrets, opportunity and menace.
From 20th-century Liverpool to the port of Mogador, Morocco, peril and risk are everywhere. Nora Mandrake, a British ship owner and captain, must navigate more than rough seas as she chooses between an old love and a new one. Nora is reminded by her friend Leeba: "Do not arouse the demons of jealousy in two women, for if you do, they will surely join forces to shine a light on your own"
But Nora is about to set the desert on fire, and it’s already blazing hot in Morocco. In a country where tradition governs all and cultural differences constrain movements, all three women must decide what they are willing to risk for an uncommon love in a world pivoting unsteadily at the dawn of the 20th century.
Mandrake soon realizes her most dangerous enemy is herself—her passions force her to confront the troubling realization that her attitudes toward women are not much more enlightened than the prevailing male attitudes she has come to loathe in the Morocco she has come to love. How could this happen? Mandrake wants it all, and all of it is what she stands to lose.
