INDIAN SUMMER
It is 1739 in pre-revolutionary America. Gabriella Deza is only fifteen years old but is about to be swept in to the world of romance and intrigue. It covers all the societal norms of the times and the political climate including spies and espionage. Indian summer is a whirl wind ride and adventure at every page turn. Gabriella is caught between two men at the turning point of American history.
All this is brought together by Dellani Oakes, a consummate author of romance, sci fi , and crime fiction. This is Ms. Oakes first shot at historical romance, but this reader is convinced that she has found a niche in the genre. I look forward to future stories like Indian Summer. I give this five flamenco dances.

A tale that holds surprises for the reader in every page, Dellani Oakes tells a masterful romantic tale of a young girl growing up in Saint Augustine. Gabriella is a spunky beautiful young lady who holds a special brand of humor, honor and the ability to draw adventure.
Indian Summer is full of surprises of adventure, betrayal, love won and lost. Her characters are rich with a depth that is seldom found in romance novels. It leaves the reader wanting to know more and looking forward to a sequel. Like Rembrandt she has painted her characters so clearly that you feel you know them and care what happens to them.

Dellani Oakes has crafted not only a touching period romance, she has also beautifully illustrated the cultures and environs that comprised and surrounded St. Augustine, Florida in 1739.

Fifteen-year-old Gabriella is a beautiful young daughter to the Governor of the Spanish Township of St. Augustine. Along with her young brother and two sisters, Bella is comfortably ensconced in childish fancies and romantic flights of imagination, until two handsome young men come into her life. Doctor James Stevens, a handsome ex-soldier with a limp is immediately smitten with her, but her heart ultimately flutters toward Manuel Enriques a dark-skinned Spaniard who with the help of the good doctor saves her young brother Marco's life during a storm.

As this historical romance swirls adeptly across colonial Florida ballrooms, we also begin to glimpse French, English, and Native American intrigues and dangers that threaten to unseat her father from his position and maybe their entire family from their lives. While Gabrielle (Bella) begins plans for her grand marriage, jealousies begin to fester and her fiancé disappears for longer and longer periods of time for what she soon learns are furtive missions on behalf of her father.

As Dellani carries us further and further into a 1700s-world so convincing we can feel the itch of rough cotton and smell the odor of musket fire, she also makes us realize how precious life was at a time when a simple storm could threaten an entire town and when a disease could and often did wipe out entire families. So with danger and intrigue swirling closer and closer to her characters' world, Dellani somehow makes us yearn to be there at that place and time where emotions are as raw as life itself.

Indian Summer and Bella's foray into love and adulthood is a magical and historical coming of age story you won't soon forget. Definitely a book for every "to be read" list.

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.
