From genteel poverty to high society Talitha Grey expected to spend her life as a milliner. Then a sudden inheritance catapulted her into the ton! Talitha will make her debut under Lady Perry’s wing – and must hide her shameful secret from her kind guardian. The only difficulty is Lady Perry’s nephew, the gorgeous, suspicious Lord Arndale, who…
“No,” he said softly. “None of us are.”
Alone in the isolated northern manor of Northcumbria, newlywed Laura cannot figure out who to trust. The harsh, sour housekeeper, Miss Tates, who seems to be hiding a secret? The mysterious visitor Mr. Humbold, who claims to be the family banker with a pressing contract she must sign? Or her husband, already off on business, who seems to have suddenly lost interest in her?
But as the secrets at the manor begin to pile up, another woman arrives: the charming, comforting Lady Rathbone. Newly widowed, she makes an instant friend of Laura, and helps her make sense of the shifting alliances and dark secrets of the estate. But Lady Rathbone may have skeletons of her own, and in a place as treacherous as Northcumbria, such secrets are almost always deadly.
