That Scoundrel Émile Dubois

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Sophie de Courcy, living as companion to an elderly countess in an isolated mansion on the mountains in North Wales, dreams of romance and adventure, but despairs of having any.

Their unpleasant neighbour Kenrick, with his wild talk of the legends of Transylvannia and of what the Countess calls his 'Mischievous Experiments' , hardly counts.

But when Sophie's long term hero, the rascally Émile Dubois, comes with his confidential manservant on a suspiciously hasty visit to his aunt the Countess, Kenrick's machinations draw him, and Sophie too, into a world of man vampires and time warps.

Obviously there can be nothing in the gossip that Émile is also the notorious highwayman Monsieur Gilles, or that Georges is is his companion in crime.

It is lucky for Sophie that she has a staunch ally in her lady's maid Agnes, who combines common sense with a talent for Tarot reading.

Winner of the coveted BRAG medallion for outstanding self-published fiction, this over-the-top Gothic adventure is full of dark humour, romance and derring-do and a perfect read for those who enjoy a spoof on the themes of classical Gothic.
