We’re excited to launch September’s book vote brought to you by HTP Books, and we want you to get to know the authors behind the books in this month’s vote. Meet Adriana Herrera, Alka Joshi, Phaedra Patrick, and Cate Ray.
A Caribbean Heiress in Paris by Adriana Herrera
USA Today Best Selling author Adriana was born and raised in the Caribbean, but for the last fifteen years has let her job (and her spouse) take her all over the world. She loves writing stories about people who look and sound like her people, getting unapologetic happy endings. When she’s not dreaming up love stories, planning logistically complex vacations with her family or hunting for discount Broadway tickets, she’s a trauma therapist in New York City, working with survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
