    About the Book

  • An authentic Regency romance about the vagaries of the heart! The handsome Earl of Wenham has no intention of marrying any time soon. His sister Almeria points out to Hugo that he owes it to the title and the estates to marry and produce an heir. Failure to do so means the entire lot devolves upon his second cousin, the Honourable Felix Barstowe. She also reminds him that their father had promised an old friend, Lord Lavenham, that his son should marry Lord Lavenham’s daughter, Miranda. Out of respect for his father’s dying promise (which he had never taken seriously), the earl sets off for Lavenham House. He is stranded by snow a few miles away from his destination and takes refuge in a local inn. He meets up with a heavily veiled, mysterious young woman, who, by her confidences to him, he realises is the elusive Miranda. To his shocking surprise, the feisty Miranda declares she will not have anything to do with someone whom she declares, “is possibly so fat and gouty, that he needs to have a wife found for him.” In fact, she would rather run away with a childhood friend. Intrigued, the earl makes it his business to get to know Miranda better by inviting her to stay in London with his sister. Unfortunately, this strategy annoys his dandyish cousin Felix Barstowe who is determined that the young and healthy earl should not marry and cheat him out of his birthright. Will Felix succeed in a dastardly plan to murder his cousin?

    About the Author
    Arabella Sheraton

    Arabella Sheraton grew up on a diet of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, and many other writers of that period. From Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer, Arabella has found both enjoyment and inspiration in sparkling, witty Regency novels. She also loves history and generally finds the past more fascinating than the future. Arabella wrote her first Regency romance to entertain her aged mom who loved the genre. Arabella is honoured to share the adventures of her heroes and heroines with readers.

    "Thank you for visiting my Amazon author page. I love writing Regency romance and am always glad when a new idea pops into my head for another sparkling, witty romance. The Dangerous Duke, my first romance novel, was written for fun, to entertain my mother who was a huge romance fan, but in particular of Regency romance. From there, more ideas came with more characters clamouring to have their chance to shine in their very own book. When not writing, I try to relax with walking the (always keen) dogs, movies, theatre, travel (when I can afford it), meeting up with friends, and (of course) reading! I love reading generally so most books spark my interest. I devoured all my mother's historical romances (Jean Plaidy, Georgette Heyer etc.) while at school, but developed a love of classic writers such as the Bronte sisters, Jane Eyre, and George Eliot as well. I adore a good story. I don't care if it has been told before; as long as the author has compelling and interesting characters, it will grab me."
