Duchess Arabella leaves the House of Wellington for the king’s court without notice or permission of her mother and father. Two murders occur in the royal palace. Duke Everett is accused amongst the courtiers. He pursues the duchess to take her hand in marriage. The Crown sequesters all of the king’s court to the royal grounds. The duke and duchess fall in love and are the first to be exonerated. They leave for the House of Carrington, only for the Crown to summon Duke Everett to serve as advisor. A third murder happens. The primary witness is Duke Everett’s unknown cousin. The duke seeks to advise the crown to finally resolve all the murders so that he and Arabella may be free to wed and remain as honourable members of the king’s court.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
After writing one historical romance mystery novel in England in atypical Liverpool, I wanted to try a different locale. This time I chose London, England. I enjoy characters who unwittingly act against the grain of certain norms. Yet, why they do this is usually for a noble cause and not for vainglory.
