A deeply emotional gothic historical romance from a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author:
TRAPPED IN DARKNESS
Violet Whitechapel committed an unspeakable crime to save a child. To escape the hangman’s noose, she takes refuge in a crumbling abbey with secrets darker than her own. When its master offers her a temporary post, Violet cannot say no. Just as she begins to see him in a new light, her past catches up to her and endangers them all…
THEIR PASSION BURNS BRIGHT
Alistair Waldegrave keeps his daughter imprisoned in the black heart of his Gothic abbey. As he searches for a cure to the disease the villagers call demonic, his new governess brings much needed light into their lives. But how can the passion between them survive the darkness encroaching from outside their sheltered walls?

To Wanton To Wed
As always, I love Erica Ridley storylines. I’m always amazed at how her stories develop and really enjoy the history she weaves throughout. But more than anything, she has a natural instinct when writing about the way her characters would react in certain circumstances. I do have to admit that Alistair is probably my least favorite character in all of the Ridley books I’ve read. The poor guy was always making the wrong choice. For me, he was cloyingly unsympathetic.
