"As the velvet cloak of moonlight settled over the ruined towers of Raglan Castle, the shadows beneath them stirred ..."
When newly widowed Tess visits Raglan Castle, she experiences an extraordinary vision that transports her to seventeenth-century Wales and a castle on the brink of a siege.
Even when Tess leaves Raglan to return to Merrick Court, her late husband’s home, the strange dreams continue as her life becomes increasingly intertwined with the past. And when the new owner of the estate arrives - New Zealander Josh Owens - the parallels become even more obvious.
But perhaps the visions aren’t just trying to tell their own story, maybe they’re also giving a warning …
Two romances for the price of one
The velvet cloak of midnight is two love stories for the price of one. A contemporary and historical romance unfolds, where the main characters have to face very differing challenges that need to be either endured or overcome.
Courtney expertly entwines the stories in more ways than one first thought. I particularly loved the way the couples, separated by centuries, connected throughout the story in a very believable way.
I would recommend this to contemporary romance lovers who would like to try historical romance.
