A name is a name...is a name. I have three. Jerri Hines, Colleen Connally, and Carrie James Haynes. Three names...one write. I have a new series, Southern Legacy, that if you enjoy the Secret Lives Series, I'm certain you will enjoy this serial. I debated back and forth on which name to use, Jerri Hines or Colleen Connally. Colleen Connally tends to lean more into the romance; Jerri Hines, historical fiction. I decide to use Jerri Hines for the Southern Legacy Saga, even though the series is a sweeping romance. No matter the name I use, all my books hold everything one has come to expect from my romances—love, betrayal, intrigue and mystery!
Today, the first book in Southern Legacy, Belle of Charleston, is FREE! Get your copy and be swept back in time!
In a world of pageantry and show, the Montgomery family accepts the way of life that has been antebellum Charleston for over a hundred years. Two cousins, the handsome and debonair, Wade Montgomery and the bold and brooding Cullen Symthe, were born to be brothers. Raised as Southern gentlemen, their character could never be questioned—loyalty, honor, duty to one’s country, God and family. It was the tie that binds until...their bond is threatened, not only by the cry for secession but by a woman—Josephine Buchanan Wright.
Josephine Buchanan Wright is a dutiful, southern belle. Her future seems fated to the two Montgomerys cousins…until all she has placed her faith in falls apart. As her life spirals out of control, she tries desperately to cling to the honor and duty that has been instilled in her. But how can she do so when all she has known is no more?
