Can’t get enough of the lives and loves of the Abbey’s inhabitants? Well, Harlequin Historical is about to launch their own Regency set romance series (made up 8 books from 8 different authors!) based on a similar premise.
Intrigued already? Read on about what Marguerite Kaye (one of the authors) has to say about this exciting new project…
The Montague family are one of the highest and most influential in England, but the Napoleonic Wars have left them in disarray.
First Jamie, the eldest son and heir, disappeared in Spain under mysterious circumstances and is now presumed dead.
Next Edward, the youngest son, was tragically killed at Waterloo. Stunned by the loss of his favourites, the Duke of Rothermere became an ailing recluse leaving the the next in line, second son Giles, to take over the running of the extensive estates and struggle to release the family from the ruinous debt caused by his father’s unwise investments.
And as if that’s not enough, as the series opens, a mysterious young woman turns up at Castonbury Park claiming to be Jamie’s widow, bringing with her her young son who, if his heritage can be proved, will displace Giles as the heir apparent to the dukedom and throw into turmoil all his careful plans for financial stability.
There will be one book a month issued (print and digital) in the UK starting in August 2012 through to March 2013. Dates for North America release and the prequel still to be confirmed, but I’ll let you know as soon as I have them. Here are the titles in order:
