Can Sophie de Courcy’s maid’s ridiculous tarot predictions be coming true?
Agnes sees a rascally admirer from abroad for each of them, and a battle with dark forces. It’s true that Sophie dreams of adventure and romance, but living as a dowager’s companion in an isolated mansion in North Wales, there is little chance for her of either.
But now, Sophie’s long term hero – the incorrigible rogue French émigré Émile Dubois, has come on a visit with his strutting confidential servant. Surely, there can’t be any truth in the stories that Émile and the London highwayman Monsieur Gilles are the same person, and his servant his companion in crime?
Why does Émile insist that he met Sophie in Revolutionary Paris – where she has never been – and why is he so angry with her for denying it?
Meanwhile, their sinister neighbours, the long-toothed Kenrick and his siren like wife, are up on a visit from Town themselves. Kenrick is full of wild talk about the legends of Romania, and of travel through time.
Émile laughs at him. Still, can he resist Mistress Kenrick’s voluptuous charms?
Can Sophie prevent them all from being drawn into a Kenrick’s dark experiments?

About the Author
Lucinda Elliot was brought up in a series of isolated, rambling old houses in various parts of the UK, which her parents were renovating before it became fashionable. Some of these would have made ideal locations for Gothic novels, and perhaps that is why she writes Gothic. After living and working in London for many years, she now lives in Wales with her family. She loves a laugh.
