Yorkshire - the first Richard and Rose book
A spooky old house, murder and two people who find the love of a lifetime.
Passion, murder and unexpected love wait for Richard and Rose in Yorkshire.
When Rose Golightly accompanies her family on a visit to their cousins in Yorkshire she finds the once great Hareton Abbey is run down, ruinous. The only other guests at Hareton are the Kerre brothers, intimidating and haughty leaders of society.
A double tragedy throws Rose into the company of Richard Kerre, Lord Strang, when he is seriously wounded in the coach accident which leaves two people dead. They discover that what at first appeared accidental was in fact a deliberate act of sabotage. Rose and Richard set out to solve the mystery, and find passion in each other.
But Richard is to marry the frigid Julia Cartwright in a few weeks, and has deliberately closed his heart to love. He has turned his thoughts away from passion—until he meets Rose.
Love will not be denied and after a taste of Rose, Richard refuses to let her go.
