Sensual desires, spectres in the shadows... the scent of murder!
A Gothic Victorian Mystery.
Arriving in Italy, Lady Cecile McCaulay is enchanted by the Castello di Scogliera and its glamorous inhabitants: the Conte di Cavour and Lucrezia, his beautiful half-sister. However, their lavish welcome hides darker motives and a third resident walks the ancient corridors of the castle, by night, unseen.
Towering above its island of wave-lashed rock is Castello di Scogliera. Look up at its narrow windows, and you might think yourself watched. Something, or someone, has been waiting for Lady McCaulay to arrive…
What dark secrets lie within those walls?
Madness, abduction, imprisonment... murder?
The past does not lie quietly.
A sumptuous Gothic Victorian tale, filled with mystery and intrigue.
'Italian Sonata' is the second volume in the darkly sensuous historical romance Noire trilogy.
