Book Summary

She is disastrously outspoken. He is a brooding recluse. Is the clash inevitable?

On route to Tunbridge Wells, Verity Lambourn befriends two lost children. She berates their mentor soundly, having no idea of his true identity. Henry, Marquis of Salmesbury, is brought up short by the girl’s scolding. Buried in gloom, he has neglected his children.

When Verity knocks Henry flying, she realises he has been preying on her mind. Tumbling towards a promising future, Verity must confront the shadows of Henry’s tragic past. Is her love enough to test the truth of a gypsy’s prophecy and bring a marquis back to living life again?

Matters come to a head when the children are kidnapped. Can Verity save them and Henry’s sanity too? Or will a threat to Henry himself prove her breaking point?


I really enjoyed the style and characters very much. I liked reading a Georgian rather than Regency period piece for a change, not that there's much to distinguish the two here in terms of style, but it was fun imagining this time period in which so much was changing. I felt like Bailey did a great job of bridging Fielding's period with Austen's. Kindle Customer

About the Author

A hybrid author, Elizabeth Bailey has written in different genres. Currently she is busy with her Lady Fan Mystery Series, published by Sapere Books, who are also bringing out her Brides by Chance Regency Adventures series.

She has also written two contemporary tales, both edging on the paranormal, plus a romantic suspense novella and a number of short romances, both modern and historical.

Elizabeth is an avid reader herself and much of her time is spent helping authors achieve publishable manuscripts. As a sometime actress, drama teacher and theatre director, her writing is fuelled with her experiences of drama and the demands of the stage.

A lifetime fan of Georgette Heyer, she finds it an honour when reviewers are kind enough to make favourable comparisons of her work with the doyenne of Regency Romance.
