When Tilly arrives in London, she is looking forward to taking up her new job as a housekeeper to one of London's most influential businessmen and wastes no time hurrying over to the home of Mr Harrington Tingay’s house to begin her duties. Unfortunately, her dreams are shattered when it becomes evident that the letter she received offering her the position appears to be a misunderstanding and there is no job waiting for her. Alone, destitute, with no chance of being able to return home, Tilly is forced to go to the poor house.
Harry simply can't forget the impoverished waif who turns up on his doorstep one evening. Not only is she younger than the average housekeeper, but there is something about her quiet elegance and innocent beauty that stirs his soul. Unfortunately she disappears again before he can get to the bottom of the lies and deceit that have turned her world upside down.
When Fate does bring them together again, her dire situation forces him to offer her the help he should have given her the first time round but, before he can find a way to turn their arrangement into a permanent one, the truth about her job offer is revealed and she is taken away from him for a second time.
Is Harry able to persuade her to ignore the censure a relationship between them would cause and take a more permanent position in his household as his wife, or will he have to live with the knowledge that the one woman who has ever stirred his heart can never be his?
Shattered Dreams released 24th April 2015.
Meantime, don't forget that Beatrice, Book 2 in the Tipton Hollow series will also be released on 2nd April 2015.
Beatrice initially thinks nothing of the mysterious plant that turns up on her doorstep one morning, however when she is visited by the rather sinister Sigmund Hargraves, who says he wants his plant back, events start to unfold that have a rather sinister twist.
Luckily, Benedict Addison is on hand to help her out, but soon finds himself drawn into a mystery which takes him and Beatrice on a journey of adventure, love and danger. When the bodies that begin to turn up appear to be connected to the plant, Beatrice and Ben are forced to face the very real possibility that there are yet more sinister goings on in Tipton Hollow that neither of them are prepared for and they must work together to keep the plant out of Sigmund Hargraves' clutches while the police investigate the murders.
However, to do that Ben has to first persuade her that he is not the ogre she thinks he is and that a future can be theirs for the taking if she will only consider him to be her match made in heaven.
Happy reading x
