On one fateful wedding day at Marston Hall in 1818, four linked destinies hover in the balance. Josiah Aston, Earl of Stansfield, wakes to discover he’s seventy years dead and he alone can free his beloved wife Isabella’s tormented soul. But first he must convince her to trust him against all the evidence… Lady Isabella Verney, beautiful and tempestuous, married the man of her dreams, only to die violently on her wedding day. Every clue points to Josiah as the murderer…
Is true love strong enough to defeat ancient malevolence forever? Miles Hartley, Viscount Kendall, is society’s ideal catch, but what does that matter if he can’t convince Calista Aston that he loves her? When an age-old curse strikes, only by proving himself worthy of her faith can he save their happiness… Lady Calista Aston, noted bluestocking, fears she loves Miles Hartley not wisely, but too well. On her wedding day, her doubts place her at evil’s mercy. When death and disaster loom, is it courage or mad folly to believe that Miles loves her in spite of all her faults? On one fateful wedding day at Marston Hall in 1818, will the lovers emerge triumphant or will darkness conquer all?
BIOGRAPHY I love writing historical romance for a living. So far I've published 11 multi award-winning stories for Avon HarperCollins and Hachette Grand Central and 24 books under my own steam. My books have also been translated into 23 languages.
I'm currently working on a series featuring some roguish Highlanders and the lassies who captivate them, called the Lairds Most Likely. The Laird's Willful Lass, The Laird's Christmas Kiss, The Highlander's Lost Lady, The Highlander's Defiant Captive and The Highlander's Christmas Quest are now out. Look for The Highlander's English Bride and The Highlander's Rescued Maiden in 2020.
When I'm not traveling the world in search of inspiration for my passionate romance novels, I live by the sea in Australia. I love to hear from readers via social media or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
