A Woman's Price
The price of Lysandra's falling in love was her being torn from her homeland of Gaul and sent to distant Rome. The price of her virginity was a few coins of silver, contemptuously tossed to her by the legionnaire who had brutally used her. The price of her staying off the streets was to please an Emperor for whom women held few surprises and little attraction. The price of her vengeance was finally paid while a great volcano poured its molten horror over a Pompeian orgy of sensuality and slaughter...
This magnificent novel has all the adventure and excitement of Rome at her mightiest -- and all the timeless anguish and burning courage of a woman whose love was too great to betray the man who had betrayed her...

Read information about the authorVirginia Edith Coffman aka Virginia Coffman, Diana Saunders, Victor Cross, Ann Stanfield, Virginia C. Du Vaul, Kay Cameron.
A native of San Francisco, Coffman contributed movie reviews to the Oakland Tribune from 1933-40. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1938 and was a movie and television script writer for Columbia, RKO, and other Hollywood studios in her early writing career (1944-56). She had her first success with writing novels in 1959, when Crown Publishing decided to take a chance on Moura, and the novel was showcased by Library Journal. By the 1980s, Coffman was recognized as "the author largely responsible for setting off the Gothics craze of the 1960s, "earning her the reputation of "Queen of the Gothics."1
She quit her day job in Reno and became a full-time writer in 1965. While historical romance novels seldom find their way into the literary canon, Coffman, who was both prolific and dedicated, took her writing seriously. Her research for historical fiction was meticulous. She also drew upon personal experience as a world traveler when setting some of her novels in Hawaii, Paris, and other romantic locales. Several of her historical romances and gothic mystery novels were translated into other languages, and many have been published in large print and audio editions.
She was recognized by Who's Who of American Women and Who's Who in the West. She was a member of the Authors League of America and the Mystery Writers Guild of America. The Reno Gazette-Journal featured Virginia Coffman and her sister in a biographical story on April 4, 2002. In 2003, she donated a collection of her gothic mystery and historical romance novels to the University of Nevada, Reno Libraries.
