Product Description


Dark sins and misery have surrounded Evern for several generations, and the dowager duchess is consumed by an obsession to end the true line, and regain her old home. Once so sure of succeeding in her goal after years of patient manipulations and spiteful games, her plans are thwarted when her grandson brings home a bride.
Vincent, the Sixth Duke of Evern is known to be a coldly dispassionate man, whose past, so it is whispered, is littered with nothing but sordid scandals and secret sins. His brooding presence puts fear into the hearts of many gentlemen, and guilty excitement within the breasts of a number of ladies of his acquaintance. But his chilling gaze considers his peers with unbiased boredom and disinterest. As his grandmother most eloquently phrases it, ‘Vincent is a soul quite lost, and very happy to remain in just such a state.’
A chance encounter with a young lady escaping from her cousin’s care opens up a new avenue, and stirs awake a side to the duke that has slumbered for many years. Whether he offered marriage out of a sense of honour, or just as a passing whim, no one is sure. But most of Society seem to agree that such a bargain could never have been solicited by kindness, or any tender emotion for that matter, and pity the beautiful young lady now held within his power.
But Melita formed her own quite unbiased opinion of her saviour right from their first meeting. Although very young, and with the innocent appearance of an angel, she has witnessed more of the darker side to human nature, and indeed of the world in her short and disjointed life than many much older society ladies would ever be aware exists. She considers herself to have been rescued at the eleventh hour, and is determined to repay her new husband by doing all in her power to make him content in their marriage. For what she sees behind his mask is the lost and damaged boy who was so brutally neglected by his warring parents many years before, and not the frozen hearted lord most of his acquaintance are used to avoiding whenever possible.
Melita’s cousin, Lord Brecan, is also haunted by the past, and makes a solitary figure riding across the heathlands of Hampshire, dwelling on the reputation he gained whilst still a young man, and doing nothing to stop it becoming ever blacker. His obsession torments him, as do his ghosts, and he neither knows nor seeks an escape. But when he follows his cousin to London, Brecan is offered an alternative from a most surprising quarter, and finds another world can exist between a woman and a man when he surrenders to Kate’s plan.
Once returned to Evern, the new duchess settles down to married life, surrounded by her friends, and content within her husband’s regard. But the Fates haven’t finished their game with her life, or with Evern, and the storm clouds are gathering, just as the dowager waits for the opportunity to turn her final card. And Melita unknowingly delivers the ace into her twisted rival’s hand just a year after her marriage, leaving no player safe in the Final Act.

‘Evern’ is an Eighteenth century romance, with shades of dark and light throughout.
