Trini author Liane Spicer debuts with major New York publising house

Café au Lait, the debut novel by Trinidadian writer Liane Spicer, was recently released as a lead mass market title by Dorchester Publishing and is already garnering glowing reviews:

"Spicer creates not only two very complex characters and a strong supporting cast, she also takes us on a nature tour of Trinidad and Tobago... Spicer's ability to take me to the place where I heard the cacophony of tropical birds and insects is amazing... I loved this book and anticipate getting a second serving of CAFÉ AU LAIT because of its brilliant flavor, rich aroma and the way it perked up my spirits. Readers will enjoy this delicious romance and especially the steamy, frothy love scenes." –

" Even if the reader has never set foot in the Caribbean, the sights and sounds, perfectly described in this book, will make you feel like you're there… Throw in some unexpected drama, and you've got yourself an entertaining novel." – Romantic Times Book Review

"…an entertaining Caribbean contemporary romance… Liane Spicer interweaves the beautiful locale into a fine tale." – Harriet Klausner, described by Time magazine as "one of the world's most prolific and influential reviewers".

"Café au Lait reads like a local Pride and Prejudice... Spicer writes well. Her expression is crisp and fresh. The plot runs smoothly, with enough suspense and thrill for a contemporary romance novel. And of course, the sex scenes do not disappoint. It's the perfect light read to take to the beach or on the journey home from work. Two thumbs up!" – Suzanne Bhagan, Trinidad Guardian

"This book hits up a lot of the best of the best romance novel plot twists in interesting ways, and I enjoyed myself immensely." – Jozelle Dyer, former romantic suspense editor at Tor Books

"A captivating book full of stunning landscapes, great looking people, a rose garden, one or two string bikinis and a car horn blowing at the wrong time. Café au Lait is brilliant, fun, scenic, intense and unpredictable which makes it hard to put down - even if you are a man..." This Beach Called Life
