Weakened by fever. Menaced by a man she loathes. Desperately in need of rescue.
Chafed at losing his soldiering life. Burdened with an earldom he did not want.
But when Niall discovers the vicar's niece in dire straits, he is distracted into playing the knight errant. Edith, wary of trusting any man, yet succumbs to Niall's unconscious charm. Beset by terrorising tactics, belittled by lies, dare she dream of a promising future? Or will Kilshaw's terrible plans for her prevail?
Can Niall slay the dragon and overcome the shadow of the past? Or will Edith's dark and dismaying secret end all hope?
I grew up in Africa on a diet of unconventional parents, theatre and Georgette Heyer. Eventually I went into acting and trod the boards in England until the writing bug got me, when I changed to teaching and directing while penning historical romances and edgy women's fiction. My 8 year apprenticeship ended with publication by Mills & Boon, and 18 historicals. Latterly I had two historical mysteries published by Berkley and I'm hoping to release more Lady Fan novels. Meanwhile, it's wonderful to be able to return to my first love and put out new and old releases in ebook.
