Coming Next ~ The Bride in Ghostly White

A Touch of Mystery, A Touch of Gothic, A Touch of Romance

This Vintage Gothic series began with The Dark Lord. The series is Miss Beale Writes and will have six total novellas, each capturing a different era of English history. 

The Bride in Ghostly White will be Victorian while The Dark Lord was Regency. Those two novellas will be bundled into Perils in Lace and Hard Iron.

Following will be two set in Medieval and Renaissance England.

The final two will be set in Cavalier / Restoration and Georgian England.

The ghosts, however, are outside of time constraints =).

The Dark Lord

~ Regency England ~ the Northern Moors ~

cover by Deranged Doctor Design

Everyone knows there’s no such thing as ghosts.

Tell that to the two ghosts haunting Elizabeth.

Elizabeth Fortescue comes to Feldstone Grange seeking the position of housekeeper. She expects the Baron Harcourt to claim she’s too young and pretty for the position, even though she’s qualified and has excellent references.

Yet the baron is desperate to hire someone, having lost five housekeepers over the past six months. He doesn’t know what drove them away.

On her first night at the Grange, Elizabeth encounters two ghosts. One is the well-known Silent Lady; none of the servants know anything about the other ghost.

Over the next week, her connection with Lord Harcourt becomes more than servant to employer. She likes her position and her employer. He also appears to like her, wanting to meet with her daily.

One ghost, though, persists in its haunting of her, enticing her to follow it.

Is it a real ghost? Is a fellow servant attempting to terrify her? Or does someone have a wicked reason to haunt the new housekeeper?

Elizabeth doesn’t know the answer—but she has more incentive to stay than leave.

Will she remain at the Grange? Or will the second ghost’s increasing hauntings drive her away?

Or lead her into death?
