Felicia / They Call It Sin by Mark Dane
Felicia, the woman left stranded in the wake of her husband’s death—the man who loved all except her. She was a sly temptress who was hated by all under the pretense that she actually murdered her spouse. Taking to booze and cheap thrills she set off to ruin her image and did so in spades. Then along came Paul, a down-on-his-luck singer who found employment taking care of Felicia’s mansion. But he soon found himself swept in a whirlpool of death, deceit and decadence as a romance blossomed—but the only thing stripped down was Felicia’s twisted barriers.
Then, Celestine’s heritage had left in her a strain too wild, too rebellious to be dealt with successfully by the simple folk who adopted her from the loving arms of Sister Rosalia. Child born of sin, destined to love and be loved . . . but always by the wrong man. That’s the story of Celestine or, as she came to think of herself, The Forsaken One. It is a story of adventure and misadventure, of love and of hate.
