She loved to grow roses.
Natasha Peters Romance Career
Jordan wrote only 10 books under the name Natasha Peters. However, she initially released Blues in the Night using her real name. In addition, two Gothics were published with the nom-de-plume of Anastasia Cleaver.
Although her later works were twentieth-century romantic fiction, her first three novels written as Natasha Peters can be classified as captivating bodice rippers.
