Guest Post by Jean Jacobsen: An Up-and-Coming Voice in Clean, Wholesome 19th-Century Historical Romance
The historical romance genre has seen a surge in popularity in recent years, with readers craving stories set in a bygone era. 
With the release of her debut novel, Clarissa, Jacobsen has proven that she is a promising author to watch out for. Her books feature strong heroines and roguish heroes, capturing the essence of the 19th-century setting and its societal norms in page-turning adventure tales.
The series, Chronicles of the Hudson River Valley, starts with Clarissa who popped into Jacobsen’s head and wouldn’t leave her alone until she wrote her story. Dastardly deeds run rampant in this fast-paced story of Clarissa Tanner and Nicholas Granger coming together to make an exciting story.
Clarissa must auction off some of her beloved horses to pay off debts left by her deceased father. Here is a quote as they prepare for the auction and find some horses have become ill.
“So far, we have five horses here with similar symptoms. Are there more from the racetrack?” asked Baines.
Clarissa released a big sigh she didn’t even know she had been holding. “I’m afraid we have at least one more, Ladies Folly.”
“Oh, Baines-why is this happening to us, and now, just before the auction?”
“Coincidences don’t just happen. Someone or something set this attack in motion, and I won’t rest easy until I find the cause. You can count on that, lassie.” 
Jacobsen’s stories are about love, loss, and hope, always with a happy ending.
