THE WIFE IN THE ATTIC
Coming from Audible Originals on February 9, 2021! A Jane Eyre retelling set in the Lively St. Lemeston universe, and Book 1 in my Rye Bay f/f Gothic duology. Sign up for a new release alert here.
Goldengrove’s towers and twisted chimneys rose at the very edge of the peaceful Weald, a stone’s throw from the poisonous marshes and merciless waters of Rye Bay. Young Tabby Palethorp had been running wild there, ever since her mother grew too ill to leave her room.
I was the perfect choice to give Tabby a good English education: thoroughly respectable and far too plain to tempt her lonely father, Sir Kit, to indiscretion.
I knew better than to trust my new employer with the truth about my past. But knowing better couldn’t stop me from yearning for impossible things: to be Tabby’s mother, Sir Kit’s companion, Goldengrove’s mistress.
All that belonged to poor Lady Palethorp. Most of all, I burned to finally catch a glimpse of her.
Surely she could tell me who cut the strings on my guitar, why all the doors in the house were locked after dark, and whose footsteps I heard in the night…
Never fear!…or rather, be very afraid! The Wife in the Attic will be out in e-book and print in Fall 2021. Watch this space for updates, or sign up for a reminder!
Up next is Falsely, Madly, Deeply, about Ash Cohen’s little brother Rafe from True Pretenses.
