Sweet Leonora: Ute Carbone

Before you open this book, take a deep breath and find a place where you’ll not be interrupted. Sweet Leonora is fast-paced story that takes us on an adventure of the heart, far-away places and the sea. You’ll smell the salt air, the sweat of horses and the perfume of exotic gardens.
Ute knows her audience well and writes with skill for them. She also has the confidence to break out of the strictures and bland formulae of modern romance – and will build an ever increasin

A short historical romance and a bit of excitement, "Sweet Lenora" is a nice read for a relaxing evening or subway commute.

Read full review in the 2013 September issue of InD’tale Magazine.

This challenge lays the stage for a love story found aboard the decks of this clipper. Captain Anton Boudreaux and Lenora Brewer, the vessels namesake, find the record is the least of their worries. A tale of secrets, betrayal, and loving affection earn this novella 3 stars.

Set in Pre-Civil War Salem, Lenora Brewer has just

This little novella represents a big leap of faith. My publisher, Champagne Books, put out a call for submissions. A call for submission is a shout out to authors that the publisher is looking for some specific thing. In this case, Champagne wanted to do a ‘dark heroes’ series, novella length stories that would feature a troubled hero, a man chased by demons who was having a hard time saving himself, let alone a damsel in distress.

My inner critic, Zelda, told me not to answer the call. Because,

Sweet Lenora (Dark Heroes Series) is a novella of only 90 pages. While I enjoyed this story, I felt it was just too short with events happening too quickly. I wanted more time for the story to unfold. Sweet Lenora is well written but would have greatly benefited, IMO, from a longer timeline. Leonora is bereaved after the sudden death of her father who was the wealthy owner of a shipyard in Salem, Massachusetts. She will inherit a fortune upon the day of her marriage. When she is betrothed to an ...more

Happily Ever Afte...: Sweet Lenora released today 6 17 Jul 10, 2013 03:28PM  
Award winning author Ute Carbone pronounces her first name Oohtah, but doesn't spell it that way. She lives with her husband in Southern NH, where she spends her days drinking coffee, eating chocolate, walking in the woods, and dreaming up stories.

There's been a long list of things I've wanted to be. Some of them were fanciful- ballerina, trapeze artist, world class ski racer. Some more serious-d
