From the Author:

I love writing historical romance. I wanted to express that not all events related to the 1800s have to be negative. Although that was a horrific time for African-Americans, there were thousands of people who didn't buy into the sentiment of this time period.
 
I wanted to focus on the love of two people, and to show that "True Love is Color Blind, Pure in its Truest Form, and is only tainted when "Haters" infiltrate it and make it so...

From the Back Cover:

**** 1/2 Star review for A Lad's trousers by Alie Infante
Reviewed by Selena Bhrams

This book was scorching hot, Christopher made me dream of him, and the chemistry between him and Zayla just sizzled off the page. 
However, what i liked most about the book, was the love affair between Christopher/ Stone and Zayla. This man would do whatever it took to not only protect her, but prove his love to her, even at the behest of his money, family, and an island full of bigoted people.
What also drew me about the book, is although the Civil war is a back drop, the author doesn't beat us over the head with race, racial slurs, or the civil war itself. I also liked that the women weren't referred to by the N word throughout the entire book, and although there were some hate fill bigoted people, it wasn't gratuitous. The book focused on the love between the main characters, and what they would go through to be together.
This to me was romance at its finest, and I give Ms. Infante props for being able to draw the reader into the storyline in a time period that was riddled with racial tension, racial cruelty, and the chaos that it brought to people of color.
Bravo Ms. Infante, this will be one of those books that I will read over and over again!
