Stronger Than Passion is a 145,000 word historical romance set during the stirring events of the Mexican-American War. Travelling from the intrique of Washington D.C. to the pageantry of aristocratic Mexico City, to the pulsing Texas borderlands, this novel portrays all the drama of a time of turbulence, when cultures clash and the resulting explosion can only end in violence -- or love.

Christina de Seinz is a beautiful young widow of European descent, patrona of a vast estate in a country not her own yet embraced as an adoptive homeland. Michael Brett is a wayward British lord with a troubled past and a mind set on vengeance. Their encounter in Mexico begins a dangerous game of intrique involving suspicions and desperate maneuverings, with the possible fate of a nation in the balance. It is only after bloodshed and loss that distrust evolves into reliance ... and hatred into desire as expansive as the heartbeat of the two countries.

For Sharron Gayle Beach, storytelling is the result of an itinerant childhood of residences in several states, an eclectic education, ranging from anthropology to broadcast journalism, stints as a model, boutique owner, decorator and becoming a dilettante of the eccentric. Plus focused but voracious traveling.Intense historical research informs her novels and spurs the plaintive cry, "Oh now I have to find out about this," which her entrepreneur husband, George Massey, so frequently hears. Her first novel, Stronger Than Passion, a Maggie award finalist, is indicative of her love for the grand romanace, as represented long ago by Alexandre Dumas, Dorothy Dunnett and M. M. Kaye.Sharron divides living between residences in the mysterious city of New Orleans and the languid beaches of northwest Florida. Not to mention, of course, spending time in her own insatiable imagination, dispensing plots, characters, and dialoge indiscriminately beneath the fiction of ordinary life.
