Hope you enjoy this week's snippet. I am feeling much better since my surgery and am "back in the saddle again." Happy Thanksgiving!
Rupert closed the heavy door as if its every creak might bring down bedlam upon him. Mercifully, a dense bank of clouds now engulfed the moon and granted him the cover of heavy darkness as he moved quickly along the ancient manor's stone foundation. Once he had reached the far end of the house, long, dark shadows that reached to a thicket of trees helped veil his last steps toward the main road.
My second Regency is mainly in the hero’s point-of-view. Lord Rupert is the rakish son of the Marquess of Lansdowne. His covert escapades to ferret out a ring of aristocratic criminals requires that he disappear into the British countryside for a short time under a false identity. Here he meets Alexandra Dancy, a country miss whose family hides its aristocratic origins because they must guard a dark secret. How can the two overcome the prejudices and hidden identities that divide them? Sorry, you will just have to wait and read it to learn the answer.
