Meet Ashley Morgan—author of A Lady in Havana

It’s the late 1950’s in Havana. Flowing mojitos and hip-shaking rhumbas rule colorful nightclubs filled with elegantly dressed beautiful people from around the world. Casinos, run by gangsters like Meyer Lansky, and a government on the brink, keep the atmosphere charged.

Enter Dimple Duncan, a proper Southern belle trying to help her husband with the social aspects of landing a business deal with the Batista government. When she meets Roberto, the Latin dreamboat lawyer also helping her husband, things quickly get out of hand–romantically and ethically. And when she meets Fidel her patriotism is tested in a way she never dreamed possible.
