The Ghost who Fell in Love

When her irresponsible brother rents the family home, Langston Manor, for the duration of the Royal Ascot races to Valient, Earl of Trevarnon and his wild gentleman friends, lonely and innocent young Demelza is afraid.
Although married to a woman who has lost her mind and is in an asylum, Trevarnon is a well-known ‘ladies’ man’ — and, for her own safety and modesty, Demelza agrees to hide among The Manor’s maze of secret passages. As she watches, though, through the old house’s ancient peepholes, she sees another, very different, side to the notorious Nobleman.

Valient Trevarnon can never, ever be hers! Then, when she secretly foils a sinister plot against her beloved, she triggers a chain of events and an overwhelming passion far beyond her control — and perhaps now she dares to hope for her heart’s desire –

    “Yes, I know that, but it is really too far for him.”

    “And for me!” Gerard replied. “I suppose there is no chance of a bath?”
