One of the things I love about blogging is having conversations with the people who comment. Sadly today, with the best will in the world, I won't be able to be here. No phone service until late March! Grrrr! Luckily my local library (which isn't terribly local, unfortunately) has internet available but it's a fairly limited option.
But hey, let's forget the bad stuff! I've got a new release to celebrate!
THESE HAUNTED HEARTS: A REGENCY GHOST NOVELLA went live on 10th March.
As I write this, I don't have an Amazon link but I can tell you that it's $1.99 and available worldwide.
This story is an extended version of "The Chinese Bed" which was published in June last year in THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF GHOST ROMANCE. I always thought the story would benefit from a little more length to give the characters some extra room to breathe. The result is THESE HAUNTED HEARTS.
Here's the blurb:
On one fateful wedding day at Marston Hall in 1818, four linked destinies hover in the balance.
Josiah Aston, Earl of Stansfield, wakes to discover he's seventy years dead and he alone can free his beloved wife Isabella's tormented soul. But first he must convince her to trust him against all the evidence…
Lady Isabella Verney, beautiful and tempestuous, married the man of her dreams, only to die violently on her wedding day. Every clue points to Josiah as the murderer…
Is true love strong enough to defeat ancient malevolence forever?
Miles Hartley, Viscount Kendall, is society's ideal catch, but what does that matter if he can't convince Calista Aston that he loves her? When an age-old curse strikes, only by proving himself worthy of her faith can he save their happiness…
Lady Calista Aston, noted bluestocking, fears she loves Miles Hartley not wisely, but too well. On her wedding day, her doubts place her at evil's mercy. When death and disaster loom, is it courage or mad folly to believe that Miles loves her in spite of all her faults?
On one fateful wedding day at Marston Hall in 1818, will the lovers emerge triumphant or will darkness conquer all?
The difficulties caused by no telecommunications has made me think of what I LOVE about living in the 21st century. The internet. Modern medicine. Music when I want it. Richard Armitage. What are your three favorite things about living in the modern age?
