Librarians seek the wisdom of the Bitchery:
We have a patron searching for an older historical romance, but she can’t remember either the author or the title. She recalls that the main character is a servant named Roxanne who starts on the East Coast (perhaps Boston) and moves to Alaska, where she becomes known as Klondike Roxie.
She later moves to either Seattle or San Francisco. Her love interest is Gavin Coulter (sp?) and he has a brother named Rhoads/Rhodes.
NoveList, BIR (library speak for Books in Print with Reviews), and various search engines haven’t turned up anything.
We know about this blog entry the author of which is just as anxious for the answer as we are.
Anyone remember this book? Hook us up, yo. (Meanwhile, I’m now craving a Klondike bar like holy crap.)
