It’s free, cheezy bread, free!

Dear Author reviewed this book in May 2007 and gave it a B. Jayne said:

I pretty much had to take a big ($17.00) gamble on this one as at the time I wasn’t reading ebooks. I’m glad to say it paid off nicely. Though it’s listed as an out of niche romance/mystery, the mystery actually takes second place to the romance….

What we get is a period (Georgian) detailed look at two people falling in love against some pretty tall odds. Richard Kerre is a handsome lord who could have his pick of women. Rose is frankly amazed that he seems to love her. And Richard is floored to have finally discovered his soulmate when he least expected her, and when he’s in no position to make her an honest offer. He’s contracted to marry a society beauty and in those days, a signed marriage contract was legally binding and if broken, could lead to expensive legal payouts and being shunned in society.

Hooray for free ebooks in many formats!

    Thanks for the info. 

    Speaking of free Kindle ebooks, I also found God Ain’t Blind by Mary Monroe and Hostile Intent (non romance) by Michael Walsh.

    I based Hareton House, where the action takes place, on the utterly awesome Calke Abbey. I sent the cover artist the photos of the place and she found an image that was really similar.
    Calke Abbey is in Derbyshire, so I cheated a bit, but only by a few miles. It was owned by a family of eccentrics who just lived in the rooms, didn’t update them, moved on to the next and filled the place with dead creatures, birds’ eggs and stuff like that. The last owner lived in a lean-to shack off the kitchen. Then the National Trust got it, and decided to preserve it, but leave it as it was. In “Yorkshire,” the nursery is as I saw it in Calke Abbey. Creepy and scary.

    Interesting sounding book, and I love the cover art.  Is it available in DTF (Dead Tree Format) as well as e-book?

    Not yet, but it will be. Not sure exactly when, at the moment we’re working on “Tantalizing Secrets,” so “Yorkshire” should be next up.

    As long as Lynn is around I’ll throw in my 2 cents—-I really enjoyed this book. The rest of the series is on my To Buy list as soon as my financial situation improves (grad school is just one huge money suck).

    I especially enjoyed Rose’s description of how she realized that other people thought of her as a spinster. If I hadn’t already liked her, that would have done it.

    Can anyone troubleshoot this? It downloaded from BoB but ADE won’t recognize it – it’s broken into xhtml files

    Never mind – I zipped it, and then used Calibre to unzip it, which caused it to recognize it where it wouldn’t before.

    It was also Pemberley in the latest film version of Pride and Prejudice—the Matthew McFadyen/Keira Knightley one.  Apparently it was also the inspiration for Pemberley in the first place (and is also mentioned in the book).  Haven’t visited myself, but really must.  The Peak District is simply stunning, and surprisingly accessible.

    I used Chatsworth as the basis for Richard’s family home, Eyton. I do pick great stately homes to use in my books, and I’ve been lucky enough to visit most of them. They have an atmosphere of their own, and the styles are very different.

    Did you visit the cheese factory in Wensley Dale? :D.

    There’s a beautiful stain glass window by Edward Burne-Jones at another house in yorkshire, I can’t remember the name of it now *curses* but they filmed Brideshead Revisted there XD. I agree the Peak District is beautiful :D If you ever go to Chatsworth, go at Christmas!!!
