Meet Laura Frantz 
Log cabin living, and tree aficionado…..

A lifelong reader & story scribbler, Laura Frantz most enjoys living in a Kentucky log cabin rather than her husband’s home state of Washington where she is allergic to every tree but one. A collector of aprons & cookbooks, she hates sushi but enjoys canning & keeping a garden & Amish-style pantry like her granny. Her favorite city in the world is Edinburgh & she wishes she was Lady Laura of Hume Castle like her ancestors before her. Most of all she loves being a homebody with her husband of 26 years & their 2 first responder sons.

Laura’s latest release is TIDEWATER BRIDE

Selah Hopewell seems to be the only woman in the Virginia colony who has no wish to wed. True, there are too many men and far too few women in James Towne. But Selah already has her hands full assisting her father in the family’s shop. And now she is in charge of an incoming ship of tobacco brides who must be looked after as they sort through their many suitors.

Xander Renick is perhaps the most eligible tobacco lord in the settlement. His lands are vast, his crops are prized, and his position as a mediator between the colonists and the powerful Powhatan nation surrounding them makes him indispensable. But Xander is already wedded to his business and still grieves the loss of his wife, daughter of the Powhatan chief.

Can two fiercely independent people find happiness and fulfillment on their own? Or will they discover that what they’ve been missing in life has been right in front of them all along?

Bestselling and award-winning author Laura Frantz takes you to the salty shores of seventeenth-century Virginia in this exploration of pride, honor, and the restorative power of true love.
