This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Isobel is willing to do anything to secure her own future, and that includes climbing out of a window in the middle of the night to flee her abusive uncle. With nothing more than a few coins in her pouch and the clothes on her back, she disappears into the night innocently unprepared for the stark reality of life on the streets. Faced with certain death from cold and starvation, she faces a tough decision. Should she remain cold and alone, yet free? Or should she throw herself upon the mercy of the one man in England she never wanted to see again?
Vowing vengeance upon the uncle responsible for her brutal murder, Dominic Cavendish, Lord Havistock returns home to rural Leicestershire to grieve for the woman he thought he had lost forever. The hauntingly familiar figure he finds there changes his life forever. Suddenly Dominic is faced with an entirely new battle.
Will he and Isobel discover the truth behind the complex web of lies and deceit that tore them apart? Can he persuade Isobel to place her trust in him once more and take a chance on their future happiness, despite the threat to their very lives? Or will her uncle succeed in tearing them apart forever.
Book One of new the Cavendish Mysteries series begins the journey of four very special couples living in Regency England, whose courtship is anything but conventional!
