Meet Dame Jade


Barbara Raffin Dame Jade

Indentured Heart

Historical Romantic Suspense

She was a woman in a man's business, shipbuilding, and someone didn't want her to succeed. Crippled in the carriage crash that killed her husband and betrayed by her solicitor and doctor, Megan McCall will trust no man to help her right the wrongs done to her. But, the one person who can help her walk again is her newly acquired indentured servant…a convicted pirate…a man. Worse, Royce Devlin's every touch reminds Megan of the passion she believes she will never know.

Indentured Heart reissue

Barbara Raffin grew up a country girl in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, but loves to visit the big city and live the hurried pace now and then. Blessed with a vivid imagination, she's created stories and adventures in one form or another for as long as she can remember. She wrote her first book at age twelve in retaliation to the lack of female leads in the adventure stories she loved reading. But it is a love of playing with words, exploring the human psyche, and telling stories that keeps her writing. Whether a romantic romp or gothic-flavored suspense, her books have one common denominator: characters who are wounded, passionate, and searching for love.

Barb lives on the Michigan-Wisconsin border with her Keeshond dogs Katie and Slippers, her avid outdoorsman husband who continues to support her love affair with reading and writing.
