Overview

The desertion of Lord Lysander Warburton's wife had come as a complete surprise, even though he readily admitted that he'd never excelled as a husband. The death of the wife he'd ignored for close to a decade was a downright nuisance, making him further fodder for the gossips, and now a target for every designing matron in London.

In line with her consistent talent for being disagreeable, Lady Adele Warburton had run off with a lowly lieutenant, leaving safety and respectability behind, then died in a cholera epidemic in a far flung country.

In a last show of husbandly duty, Lysander decides to recover her effects, and grudgingly those of her lover, retracing the steps of the wife he'd barely known across half the world. But arriving in the mayhem of India, he finds that all is not as it should be.

Meet the Author

I've just completed the third book in the D'Arth Series, the Gamble, which completes the series. I am currently working on a Victorian set in London. I live in New Zealand and I work on the railroad. No kidding. Actually I have a desk, from where I manage the safety systems. My love for Harry Potter is what drew me into writing and I haven't stopped since. I've only recently started writing original stories. I live with my partner, our daughter and an elderly dog.
