NEW BOOK - Out Now - OLD FASHIONED VALUES
OLD FASHIONED VALUES
When historian Cara Phillips meets Chase Hampton, she believes she has met her soulmate. He is wealthy, has inherited a castle and has the same interests as her.
They both value the ethics of the past and both enjoy medieval theme weekends and events together, the more authentic the better.
When he suggests a medieval wedding, she is thrilled. She has no family to speak of and is happy for him to send the invitations to the few friends she wishes to invite, and she is not surprised when they all decline. She knows that none of them really approve of Chase and his old fashioned ways, but she doesn't care about that. She loves him and that is all that matters.
Their medieval adventure begins when they board a galleon, a ship just like that of Francis Drake and after a sea journey of some two hours, they land on an island where everything is recreated just as it would have been in the sixteenth century and earlier. There are noblemen and women, all in beautiful clothes, there are peasants and peasants' huts, and the castle is real and ancient.
But it doesn't take long before Cara realises there is more to this island than a medieval theme park, that these people really do believe they are living in the sixteenth century.
Too late, she realises her mistake but how is she to escape? As her new husband keeps telling her, there is no way off the island.
This novel is a departure from my usual historical romance and is more of a thriller, but I hope you will enjoy it anyway.
The first chapter can be read here.
