Catalina Flores de la Peña’s tongue got her in more trouble than any other part of her body, even though there were far more likely candidates. But when a storm rolls into her sleepy port town, she finds herself embroiled with a gang of adventurers, mercenaries, and prostitutes on a journey to free South America from the Spanish Empire.

A Storm Hits Valparaíso is an epic historical adventure starring two brothers torn apart by love; a slave running for his life; a disgraced British sailor seeking redemption; and José de San Martín, an Argentine general who deserts the Spanish Army to lead a bloody revolt against his former masters.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This is a stirring and gripping read. This is Gaughran’s debut novel and, goodness, it is an impressive debut. I eagerly await to read more from him.


One of the best historical fiction reads yet! An amazing first novel.


A Storm Hits Valparaiso is an adventure of epic proportions. A very compelling and moving read for all who enjoy historical fiction…in fact a good read for anyone!


I urge you to give this a try – and if Historical Fiction isn’t your genre, this book could well be the ideal introduction to it. Enjoy!
