A ruined abbey on a beautiful estate in Derbyshire, a murdered peer, and a most unlikely romance make New York Times bestseller Tasha Alexander's new novel absolutely irresistibleAnglemore Park is the ancestral home of Lady Emily Hargreave's husband Colin. But the stately calm of country life is destroyed when their neighbor, the Marquess of Montagu, bursts through the French doors from the garden and falls down dead in front of the shocked gathering. But who has a motive for murdering the young aristocrat? The lovely cousin who was threatened by his engagement, the Oxford friend he falsely accused of cheating, the scheming vicar's daughter he shamelessly seduced or the relative no one knew existed who appears to claim the Montagu title? Who is the mysterious woman seen walking with him moments before he was brutally attacked? The trail takes readers into the gilded world of a British manor house and below stairs to the servants who know all the secrets. One family's hidden past and a forbidden passion are the clues to a puzzle only Lady Emily can solve.

I number it among one of my favorites, but I find myself rather disappointed with the latter books.Don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore Lady Emily and her husband, the valiant, gorgeous, charming, and altogether impeccably per...
Love, love, love.This book had the perfect mix of love, sex, humor, drama, heartbreak and mystery for me. There's a bit of everything and just in the right dose. I adored the main characters and would love to read more about them, although I'm just as excited to read Cai's story who might not be as ...
