Charis Landon could never submit to her stepfather's contemptible demands. She had to escape the confines of Carwinnion Manor. To run from his spiteful cane, his tyrannous ways and evil plans. Even if it meant certain death... Isobel Kelly's thoroughly captivating eighth spellbinder follows the runaway Charis embarking on a treacherous journey across country. Disguised as a stable boy and secretly stowed between fish boxes, she slips away on a boat, desperate to escape a dire betrothal to Baron Whaley - but he and her stepfather aren't the only threat. Fraught with fear and danger, her life is in the balance as she eludes the clutches of her tormentors, and seeks safety in her lover's arms. Can he guarantee her the protection she so gravely desires? One man's arms will bring her death. Another will ensure her freedom.

About the Author:

Isobel Kelly is 83 years young. Born in Fifeshire, Scotland, she now lives in England. A long life with many experiences enhanced her imagination and her gift for telling stories. Together with her love of words she set out to create a series of books that pleased her readers, and surprised her when they were sold in countries around the world. Once an artist and restorer of oils and watercolours, she owned a picture gallery until retirement and was also a consultant in art and interior design to major UK businesses. Laying brushes down and taking up writing, her poetry was published in several anthologies. She was asked to write for the 50th anniversary of The Lelant Village Produce Association in Cornwall. She decided a magazine would be appropriate, so with contributions from villagers and local advertisements she filled it with interesting wartime memorabilia, composed poetry and found pictures of the village. It sold at annual flower shows, and copies have gone all over the world via tourists and villagers sending them to friends. An accident laid her low for a while during which time a computer became her best friend and from these small beginnings she launched into novel writing. On her own now, the widow of a lovely man she adored, she has four adult children and four grandchildren. However, writing fills her life and the intensive research required for every book keeps her mind active and enthralled with the discoveries she makes. She wants to continue writing for the enjoyment of her many readers from all over the world. To that end the ninth book is already taking shape.
