#ThrowbackThursday--and a huge book sale! vanessarileyauthor 's fabulous novel ISLAND QUEEN is on sale at $2.99, and you do NOT want to miss this one. I had the chance to read ISLAND QUEEN last year for a cover quote and I was blown away: first by Vanessa's research skills as she pieced together the life of this little-known heroine of history, and then by heroine Dorothy Kirwan Thomas herself--a free woman of color who rose from slavery to become one of the wealthiest and most powerful landowners in the colonial West Indies. A matriarch, an entrepreneur, a trail-blazer, beloved by rogues and kings alike, just an utter powerhouse. Her story is amazing, and the e-book version is yours for $2.99. Grab it for yourself or gift it to a friend!

Born into slavery on the tiny Caribbean island of Montserrat, Doll bought her freedom—and that of her sister and her mother—from her Irish planter father and built a legacy of wealth and power as an entrepreneur, merchant, hotelier, and planter that extended from the marketplaces and sugar plantations of Dominica and Barbados to a glittering luxury hotel in Demerara on the South American continent.

Vanessa Riley’s novel brings Doll to vivid life as she rises above the harsh realities of slavery and colonialism by working the system and leveraging the competing attentions of the men in her life: a restless shipping merchant, Joseph Thomas; a wealthy planter hiding a secret, John Coseveldt Cells; and a roguish naval captain who will later become King William IV of England.

From the bustling port cities of the West Indies to the forbidding drawing rooms of London’s elite, Island Queen is a sweeping epic of an adventurer and a survivor who answered to no one but herself as she rose to power and autonomy against all odds, defying rigid eighteenth-century morality and the oppression of women as well as people of color.
