Seeking Catherine is a short novella (12,000 words) that has garnered many five star reviews.
The story is a sweet romance. (no sex), but with sensual content.

He’s hurt her in the past. Can she trust her heart to him again?
During an age of chivalry they were sweethearts, planning a future together in Tudor England.

Headstrong and proud, Catherine Sudfield remembers everything about Stefan Boswell. And she loved him in spite of his poverty and lack of nobility. The restless Gypsy rogue’s powerful good looks and promises of love were more than enough to satisfy her youthful dreams.

But then Stefan left without a word, and Catherine’s uncle bargained her off to a brothel.

Sometimes, bonds between a man and a woman, however young, are meant to last a lifetime. But will it take more than a dose of Gypsy magic to chase away the doubts between two guarded lovers?

Here’s what readers are saying:

“I happen to love part-Gypsy heroes and heroines who will do whatever it takes to survive–to my delight, Seeking Catherine has both. Seeking Cathrine is an enjoyable debut Novella set in Tudor England, with sparkling banter and emotional resonance. Looking forward to Josie Riviera’s next!”

Wonderful interplay between two strong characters–Catherine who is strong because she has to be and the handsome rogue Stefan who’s suffered his own share of torment. A lovely read, and a delight to watch these two accept they still love each other.”

5 star Reader Reviews:

“What a delightful historical romance set in a brothel of all places. I read it in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed the characters. The lovely Catherine, daughter of an earl, sold to a brothel by her hateful uncle. She’d lost her naiveté but not her spirit and courage. Stefan, the rakish Gypsy, who managed to succeed in life but never forgot the pretty girl he loved years ago. Now he wants her back. Can Catherine run away from the brothel’s owner who may hurt her little sister? Can she trust Stefan who abandoned her years ago? I fell in love with this author’s writing and only wish this story was longer. I hope the author will give it a sequel. Josie Riviera is on her way to a successful publishing career.”
