“Of all books written about the Gold Rush and the Forty-Niners…one of the most compelling narratives….A California version of the Federalist Papers.” -The San Francisco Chronicle

The year is 1849 and Bayard Taylor sets out for California in the early years of the gold rush to record the world around him.

Step back in time and take a journey of over three thousand miles across land and sea.

Eldorado is a series of brief glimpses into a world both haunting and beautiful.

Bayard Taylor takes the reader from New York to Panama, around Mexico and up to California and in that time he seems to see the whole spectrum of human existence.

Sometimes he seems barely to believe what he is seeing, and the novel has a continuous sense of wonder to it.

Although gold is everywhere – in the dirt, drifting in the streams, always changing hands, shaping the landscapes and the people that it touches – it seems that Bayard can see past that precious metal to the land and the lives beneath it.

As his journey takes us beyond California and down into South America it becomes a celebration of the world as Taylor found it.

Taylor collects both stories and songs on his travels, determined to chronicle the changing world around him.

Eldorado is a bible of the American frontier: filled with lush descriptions and fascinating stories as Barnard Taylor drifts through America like a ghost, chronicling a vast and changing continent.

There is a newness to everything in Eldorado – a sense that maybe Taylor could be standing where no one has stood before.

Could California ever have been the Eldorado it was promised to be or will humans always demand the impossible?

How many chances does life give you to find your HEA?

First impressions …

Ashley Taylor is a young waitress in Las Vegas when she meets charismatic billionaire Grant Morland. They spend one unforgettable weekend together before Grant’s hectic work life pulls him away. No sooner has he gone than Ashley is summoned home by a family emergency. Then she learns about Grant’s playboy reputation, and knows better than to think she’ll ever see him again.

Second acts …

Nine years later, their paths cross again. Grant had tried to contact Ashley soon after their encounter, only to discover she’d left town. Though he couldn’t track her down, he never forgot the sweet, sexy girl who was so different from his usual conquests. Now that he’s finally found her again, Grant’s determined to pick up where they left off. He doesn’t care that Ashley’s a single mom. But he doesn’t know her secret — one that would change everything between them.

And last chances …

Their chemistry is as strong as ever, and Ashley can’t resist him … but can she trust him? Her experience with an abusive ex makes her question her judgment in men. If Grant learns what she’s hiding, will he forgive her?
