A historical romantic adventure set in a nicely different time and place, Dellani Oakes’ Indian Summer tells of the Spanish governor’s family in St. Augustine, Florida, enjoying high society while still treating the common people with sensible care. But the British are coming with plans to change the world.

Intriguing details of Indian tribes, British spies, history and politics feed very naturally into this young adult romance as teenager Bella wonders what the future will bring to her. About to become officially adult as she turns fifteen, she knows little of the world of men, and doesn’t understand why a servant might tell her to beware. Soon two handsome characters are vying for her attentions. But a storm of weather, matching Bella’s storm of emotions, helps her decide where her heart might lie.

Soon there are promises of wedding vows. Humor and innocence combine in the gently natural conversation and innuendos of Bella and her confidantes. But the dashingly handsome spouse-to-be is kept away by work, and suddenly fun and games give way to earnest danger and plots. New temptations loom and Bella struggles to stay true to her body and the man she loves, while her world falls apart.

Indian Summer is a pleasing light-hearted story of love, loyalty, friendship and fun, with just a hint of history’s dark themes, making it a thoroughly enjoyable, slightly edgy YA romantic suspense.
