Author Biography

Most people have a vision. Mine is to create and share wonderfully passion filled stories, alive with action, sprinkled with humor and always, always -- a happy ending. Remember,only Passion can bring a Vision to Life.

After living many enjoyable years in Arlington Texas my husband and I retired to southeast Oklahoma. It is here that I finally realized my dream of becoming a published author.

When I decided to try my hand at writing, I did what every other aspiring author does... I looked back at my family history for a story to tell. To my disappointment, there was nothing very exciting in my family line. I haven't given up on my family. I'm sure there is a story there somewhere. But..., when I turned my attention to my husband's family... WOW..., I found a character on whom I just could not turn my back. This man inspired the entire Passion's series.

Again, like any aspiring author, I read everything I could find on this ancestor of my husband's. I read, took notes on the palm of my hand, the back of my hand, on my wrist, grocery store tabloids, gum wrappers, tiny notepads, anything I could get my hands on. I even carried a tiny recorder. I just had to do this because there is no timetable or appropriate location for inspiration. It just happens. During my more organized moments, I created a file to keep track of any historical events pertinent to my story. I created a basic outline containing interesting, exciting, death-defying and romantic escapades of my hero that I was sure would thrill my readers. The whole experience of writing is glorious in a way only an author can understand.

Golden Dawn left her home, a Cherokee village called Chota, and travelled to England to look for her childhood friend and the love of her life, Raven, whom she had last seen 10 years ago. The Great Spirit had warned her that Raven was in danger and she knew it was her obligation to save him, if it was the last thing she did. When she reached London, however, to her disappointment Raven was already engaged to a woman who was not ready to give him up without a fight. Raven's fiancée was, however, not the only one standing in the way of Golden Dawn’s happy ever after. Raven was consumed by a desperate need to find his biological father and make him pay for abandoning his mother. This filled him with anger that was so deep it was reaching self-destruction. Dawn firmly believed that she and Raven belonged together and was determined to save him from himself and from others who wanted to harm him.

In Passion’s Price, Mary Adair used a combination of a masterfully created plot and a selection of vibrant characters to write an amazing story that will give any fan of the historical romance genre a thrilling reading experience. The combination of characters - a beautiful Cherokee girl living in London but determined not to give up her native ways, a man with a consuming anger who was engaged to a devious woman while his heart belonged to the Cherokee girl, and two very loving and equally mischievous grandmothers and others - produced a definite page-turner. Dawn's free-spirited lifestyle was like a breath of fresh air to the people in London. She was a girl so beautiful, so stubborn and so determined to get what she believed was rightful hers that she survived her stay in London on her own terms. I loved reading Passion’s Price and cannot wait to read Mary Adair's next book, Passion’s Promise.
