The third book in the beloved Regency romance series, The Treasures of Surrey.
“Ladd fills the pages with as much intrigue as romance. A well-crafted story for fans of Regency novels.” —Publishers Weekly
Could losing everything be the best thing to happen to Annabelle Thorley?
In the fallout of her deceased father’s financial ruin, Annabelle’s prospects are looking bleak. Her fiancé has called off their betrothal, and now she remains at the mercy of her controlling and often cruel brother. Annabelle soon faces the fact that her only hope for a better life is to do the unthinkable and run away to Fellsworth, where her estranged uncle serves as the school’s superintendent. Upon arrival, Annabelle learns that she must shed her life of high society and work for her wages for the first time in her life.
Owen Locke is unswerving in his commitments. As a widower and father, he is fiercely protective of his only daughter. As an industrious gamekeeper, he is intent on keeping poachers at bay even though his ambition has always been to purchase land he can call his own. When a chance encounter introduces him to Annabelle Thorley, his steady life is shaken. For the first time since his wife’s death, Owen begins to consider a second chance at love.
As Owen and Annabelle grow closer, ominous forces threaten the peace they thought they’d found. Poachers, mysterious strangers, and murderers converge at Fellsworth, forcing Annabelle and Owen to a test of fortitude and bravery to stop the shadow of the past from ruining their hopes for the future.

A Stranger at Fellsworth
Sarah Ladd's novels draw you in and keep you enthralled. This novel was no exception. The characters we're vividly portrayed. The story held me in suspense. I enjoyed spending time in the historical setting she created. The love story built naturally and was satisfying. Some of the language struck me as too modern, but only occasionally. I have read all of her books and I recommend them. This book wonderfully blended thoughtfully written romance, uplifting themes, intriguing characters, and an absorbing plot. Well done, Sarah.
