Description: Catalina Flores de la Peña's tongue got her in more trouble than any other part of her body, even though there were far more likely candidates. But when a storm rolls into her sleepy port town, she finds herself embroiled with a gang of adventurers, mercenaries, and prostitutes on a journey to free South America from the Spanish Empire.

A Storm Hits Valparaíso is an epic, historical adventure starring two brothers torn apart by love; a slave running for his life; a disgraced British sailor seeking redemption; and José de San Martín, an Argentine general who deserts the Spanish Army to lead a bloody revolt against his former masters.

Reviews: "A Storm Hits Valparaiso is a work of sweeping historical fiction that captivates and entertains both in terms of the characters and the story narrative. Gaughran makes a concerted effort to preserve the accuracy of the historical record and uses the deft touch of his creative imagination to fill in the gaps, as is required in a work of this sort, creating a story that is at once engaging and richly textured. I would certainly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys good historical fiction driven by interesting characters and a well conceived and executed narrative."
