Publisher Description

And only to Deceive
For Emily, accepting the proposal of Philip, Viscount Ashton, was an easy way to escape her stifling home life so when her new husband dies on safari, she feels little grief for she barely knew the man. Now, two years on, when she finds his journals she discovers a very different man to the one she thought she had married - one who was a gentleman scholar who was very much in love with his new wife.

But she also uncovers a dark, dangerous secret involving stolen artifacts from the Greco-Roman galleries... and as she sets out to solve the crime she discovers even more surprises about her dead husband...

A Poisoned Season
London's social season is in full swing, and the aristocracy can't stop whispering about a certain gentleman who claims to be the direct descendant of Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette. Drawing rooms, boudoirs and ballrooms are also abuzz with the latest news of an audacious cat burglar who has been making off with precious items that once belonged to the ill-fated queen.

But light gossip turns serious when the owner of one of the pilfered treasures is murdered...

A Fatal Waltz
A deadly dance between two implacable enemies...

At her friend Ivy's behest, Lady Emily Ashton reluctantly agrees to attend a house party at the country estate of Lord Fortescue, a man she finds as personally odious as he is politically powerful. Also among the guests is Kristiana von Lange, an Austrian countess who had once been linked romantically with Emily's fiancé, Colin Hargreaves, and she makes no secret of that fact, tormenting Emily for her own amusement.

Matters soon turn deadly serious when Lord Fortescue is found murdered and his protégé, Robert Brandon - Ivy's husband - is arrested for the crime...

Tears of Pearl
Set amid the beauty and decadence of the Ottoman Empire, Lady Emily's latest adventure is full of intrigue, treachery, and romance.

Lady Emily and Colin Hargreaves set out toward Turkey for an exotic honeymoon. But on their first night in the city, a harem girl is found murdered, strangled in the courtyard of the sultan's lavish Yildiz Palace. Sir Richard St. Clare, an Englishman who works at the embassy in Constantinople, recognizes the girl as his own daughter who was kidnapped twenty years earlier. Emily and Colin promise the heartbroken father that they'll find her killer, but the investigation soon turns deadly...
