Overview

‘A young woman must value, above all else, her virtue.’

Ann Rhys, daughter of a minister, is employed by Charles Brindley, the widowed Master of Brizecombe Hall, to be governess to his two children. Her initial feelings of apprehension regarding her employer are rapidly surpassed by other emotions that are new to Ann.

Under Ann's influence, Mr Brindley takes a greater interest in his children's upbringing, but does his action imply that he sees her as more than a mere governess or does his heart truly belong to Cassandra, the wealthy young woman rumoured to be the future mistress of Brizecombe Hall?

"This tugged on your emotions a lot and kept me interested through the end and the ending made me smile. I love when true love overcomes social standing," (5-star review on Barnes & Noble, Oct. 2011).

"A really lovely read ... beautifully written ... very satisfying," (Apple UK Review, April 2012).

"Great book, great read; I recommend it to all," (5-star review on Apple Australia, 2012).

Meet the Author

I write women's fiction and romance. My longer works have been described as quirky romances. I also write shorter fiction in the genre of historical romance.

For tasters of my writing, the short stories, 'Opening Night,' 'The Ramblers,' 'The Family Tree,' 'The Office Party' and 'All The Trimmings,' are available to download for free from Smashwords & their retailers.

Many thanks to all who have reviewed, recommended and rated my books. I really appreciate feedback from readers.

'Brizecombe Hall,' a novelette set in England in the early Victorian period, has been my most popular book to date, receiving great responses from readers who appreciate that it's intended to be an homage to the Brontes.

A review of 'Kitty,' my Regency romance, written in an Austen-esque style, concluded, "Well worth your time for a light and light-hearted read. I recommend it to all who just need a small diversion from life."

'Three Romances,' a collection of the stories, 'Brizecombe Hall,' 'Kitty' and my WWII romance, 'The Hangar Dance,' is available digitally and in print.

The novel, 'Elizabeth Clansham,' is also available in both digital and print formats.

My latest contemporary novella is 'Clifton.' There are more short historical romances in the pipeline...

    Reminded me of...

    This story is basically a happy and very shortened version of Jane Eyre. Not bad, but not very original either.

    Hmm?

    This was like the amped up adult version of Beauty and the Beast. It started in what felt like to me the middle of the story, there was very little background info. It was almost like the first three chapters were missing. Then because this werent clear it became really really confusing. I wish the author would have just gone the extra mile and made thus book as good as it should have been.

    Not worth your time.

    Even as a free eBook this is a waste. Obviously, the writer has read "Jane Eyre," but Charlotte Bronte she is not.
