Her heart full of love and longing, Emily Sylvester was playing a dangerous game. A game she knew she couldn’t win but she played it all the same. If their liaison were to be discovered, as surely it must, she could lose everything. Her job, her friends, even her home, nothing was safe. Yet even if her love brought her to ruin she could refuse him nothing. To make matters worse, William DeBeauville, the Earl’s grandson and heir, had joined the game. Jealously determined to outshine his cousin Edward, William would stop at nothing to discredit him. When he realises that Edward wants Emily, William plots and schemes to bring about Edward’s downfall and claim her for his own. Read on to discover how this tale of love and passion unfolds and then read a little bit more to discover the thrilling conclusion in the gripping sequel “Ashes of Roses.”

About the Author:
Look out for the sequel, 'Ashes of Roses' where the story continues to spin out in a whirlwind of gripping emotions
Oh, the wonders of the world's glorious past! Even as a child I loved delving into all those musty corners where unseen myriads have passed and left their mark or simply melted away into a melancholy oblivion. Endlessly fascinated I have prowled around the crumbling walls of ancient castles and stalked the halls of stately mansions in the vain hope of gaining some small insight into the lives of the shadowy presences that still linger. That said, I have no great aptitude for memorizing dates and out of the way places, it's the human psyche that has me enthralled and I drink up the imagined passions and thoughts of our distant ancestors like a desert under a cloud burst. My joy and delight has ever been in reading a polished account of how, in ages past, this king or that, this duchess or another, felt and acted out their lives through the eyes of an empathetic author. I like to glean the cold hard facts through a soft shroud of human thoughts and emotions, however subjective those imaginings may be. Imagine my delight when on researching my own more recent ancestors I stumbled upon a story all of my own. Well, my family's at least. Here was something to conjure with and my imaginings ran wild as I built a story around a thin skeleton of family legends and 'The Belle Fields' was born. I would like to say it was an easy birth but in truth it was more like a cesarean. I began, awkwardly stumbling along, swaying in the winds like an ancient gate creaking on its hinges, researching the Victorian way of life in an attempt to give my story some credibility. Until amazingly, pushed by the phantoms of the past, my characters developed form and presence and the words came rushing in a ceaseless torrent. This is a story, not of kings and princes; it is a story of flesh and bone, human emotions and frailties. This is my story, hope you enjoy it.
