Product Description

A cry for help, echoing through the ages, inspires a young nobleman to rewrite history– and rediscover a passion he had only dreamt of…

Cole d’Morgan is contacted by a lawyer telling him he has been left a castle in Cornwall, but to inherit he must arrive at Castle Thornwood on All-Hallows-Eve. As he pulls his car to a halt at the castle gates he sees a beautiful red-haired woman clutching at the bars in the rain. However, before he can climb from his car she vanishes into the night.

Arriving at the castle he learns that she is the ghost of Alyssa d’Morgan a woman who was tried as a witch in 1644.

He is told the tragic tale of Aidan and an Alyssa d’Morgan … a love story that spans three hundred years.

Alyssa d’Morgan burned as a witch for refusing to wed her dead husband’s father haunts the castle where she was put to death and takes revenge on the man responsible. She is sworn to haunt the castle until she is reunited with her husband and soul mate, Cai. But the rejected father, Gedrych d’Morgan being of superstitious nature, orders the druid stones outside the castle walls to be dragged into the courtyard to surround her pyre. Little does he realise that he has unleashed magic eons old that will enable Alyssa to appear as a real woman within the boundary of the stones.

Aidan d’Morgan, re-incarnated soul of Cai d’Morgan is reborn in the early 1900’s. As a child he once heard a story of a great castle in Cornwall that once belonged to his family. Whilst visiting a gentleman’s club in London with his cousin, he overhears a young man making a wager, and wins back Castle Thornwood on the turn of a card.

On entering the castle he cannot shake the feeling that he is being watched, and soon learns that the castle is haunted not by a murdered Countess as he has been told, but by a beautiful red-haired woman who speaks to him in his dreams. However, these are not simply dreams, but a past life, which he is forced to revisit in order to find an answer to an age old curse…

In the morning he becomes confused when he meets his Steward’s niece, who bears an uncanny resemblance to his resident ghost and later becomes torn between his love for a woman he can never have, and a young woman who wants him.

Then there is the mystery of who is trying to kill him. Is it Landan Denero? An agent for the Crown, a man who Aidan suspects of being a double agent, and seems to pop up in all the most unlikely places? Or someone or something more sinister as Aidan’s cousin Freddie suggests? Alyssa d’Morgan herself…

What follows is an interwoven tale of chilling betrayal and haunting love story that traverses three centuries...

He glanced down to see a red rose–the color of blood by firelight. He could have sworn it hadn’t been there before. He picked it up. It was ice cold, sending a chill through his hand. He rubbed at a petal, and found it waxy almost slimy to his touch. And as he watched, one by one, each petal dropped away to wither and turn to rust upon the bare wooden floor. He realized whatever Thornwood held in store, it would not be of the ordinary.”

Indeed there is nothing ordinary about Thornwood castle and there is nothing ordinary about the romance novel set there, Whisper of Yesterday by Julie Darcy. This incredible cross genre novel is a Paranormal/Historical/Suspense/Romance. Readers who enjoy books with spies, ghosts, England, witches, reincarnation, the moors, or haunted castles will love this enchanting novel.

The tale begins in the modern era when an American, Cole de Morgan inherits a haunted castle in Cornwall, but there are some stipulations in the will. One is he must arrive on All Hallows Eve and stay a month. As the story begins to unfold the reader is taken to the 1600s when the heroine, Aylissa Llywellen De Morgan is burned at the stake as a witch in the courtyard of Thornwood castle. She puts a curse on the man who killed her husband, her child, and herself, Gedrych de Morgan, causing his line to be cast from Thornwood Castle until Cai walks its halls once more. Cai de Morgan was Gedrych’s son and Aylissa’s husband, who except for longer hair looked just like Cole.

The tale continues when it moves into the early 1800’s and we meet our hero, Lord Aidan Tristan Wyndmire de Morgan, an English spy, who wins Thornwood castle in a card game. His appearance is also the exact likeness of Cai de Morgan except is hair is shorter. He soon becomes involved with the resident ghost, Aylissa Llywellen De Morgan, and seeks to discover why she holds such an attraction to him and has such a hold over him. As the story travels between the three time periods, the reader beholds a love between them that is so strong and magical it overcomes death.

It is always hard for an author to find a creative way to involve a ghost with the limitations of a sprit’s body in the tantalizing, heated love scenes of a romance. Julie Darcy’s method is smooth, superb, and original. I found myself so attached to the intriguing,fully fleshed out characters of Alyssa and Aidan that I know they will haunt me for some time to come. Whisper of Yesterday is a page turner from a familiar Gothic beginning, when an American Scientist braves a blinding thunderstorm on Halloween to reach a castle he unexpectedly inherited, to a surprising, thrilling, and joyful twist at the end. Whisper of Yesterday is an enchanting read that should not be missed. This one’s a keeper.
