Portia & the Merchant of London

Genres: Historical Fiction , Romance

After her father’s stroke, Portia Gillespie finds they have just enough money to live on, so where is her brother’s school tuition to come from? She and Mama have no idea until a moneylender comes to call. In spite of the prior debt, he is willing to lend this year’s tuition. The only alternative to accepting the loan is to apprentice Benedict to one of the less expensive trades. Papa would be horrified.

Solomon de Toledo has fulfilled none of his family’s expectations. He is neither a rabbi nor a physician, nor even a respectable importer or banker. Still, as a moneylender, he is able to aid Portia, whose character he admires as much as he respects her father’s scholarship.

But when her father recovers and arranges Portia’s betrothal, how will Solomon save her from her ruthless suitor?

My books contain no explicit sex, though some language may be offensive to some readers (but you’d probably hear worse on any middle-school playground). Sometimes there’s humor.

Available at Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and many other online e-book sellers. Print on demand copies can be ordered at many bookstores.
