"Fast paced and intricately plotted, A Devilish Slumber spins a tale of lost love, cold-blooded murder, and heartless betrayal. A page turner!"--Award-winning author, Gail Whitiker
". . . the mystery and suspense of ghosts and murders will keep you on the edge of your seat and have you guessing to the very end."--Black Lilac Kitty review of A Beastly Scandal
Since dealing with the death of her sister, and her abandonment by Sir Phillip Jones--the man who professed to love her--Lady Roselyn Ravenstock has lived as if sleepwalking. Mired in grief, she sequestered herself in her home, avoiding all callers. Then she meets Mrs. Helen Beaumont, and Rose starts to come to life . . . until Helen is murdered. But this time, Rose isn't going back to sleep. Vowing to avenge her friend, Rose dons a costume and goes out into the night looking for a killer.
Sir Phillip, the Regent's favored spy, returns from war determined to win back the woman he was forced to leave three years ago. But when he witnesses Rose covered in blood, racing from a brutal scene while gripping the murder weapon, he goes on a desperate mission to unravel what he hopes is a case of mistaken identity.
The investigation leads Rose into a world of enchantment, where people can reshape their features, fires are begun with a snap of fingers, and objects move of their own accord. But the real magic is the blazing attraction that is re-awakened between her and Phillip.
Will Rose ever get her happily ever after? Possibly. But first, she'll have to convince Phillip of her innocence--
before the killer strikes again. . . .
