The Secrets of Stonebridge Castle Blitz

 

The Secrets of Stonebridge Castle cover

 

Gothic Regency Romance

 

Published: September 2021

Publisher: Kone Enterprises

A gothic tale of ghosts, murder, and lost love…

When bullies threaten Aurelia Lacey and her five-year-old daughter Nell, they are rescued by an old friend, Jason Durand, younger brother of an earl. Jason, once a daring spy, has fallen into depression and drunkenness since the war, but he rallies long enough to offer the outcasts the shelter of his brother’s country seat, Stonebridge Castle. But the ancient castle is not the quiet refuge they expected. Aurelia and Jason—both lost souls from the war against Napoleon—must deal with a bevy of hedonistic London house guests, seven hundred years of ghosts, multiple murders, and a chance—a very slim chance—that love will triumph over all.

 

Author’s Note: Although ghosts are prominent in SECRETS, they appear as characters, not creatures of horror. And there is more emphasis on romance than in my previous Gothics.

Matthew Wolfe Blitz

 

Matthew Wolfe cover

 

Regency Adventure / Romance

 

Date Published: March 2021

Publisher: Kone Enterprises

At the risk of being taken up by Bow Street, Matthew Wolfe returns to London, hoping to discover some clue to his heritage, which just might be royal. But, of course, nothing goes as he hoped. Not even the role he had eagerly anticipated as one of Harding’s Hellions. Yet becoming an adventurer has some unanticipated benefits, such as acquiring an elegant mistress a decade his senior. And discovering his former fishing companion, Jocelyn, has grown into a beauty old enough to make her come-out.

But even as a partner in a newly formed private investigation business, life does not run smoothly for Matthew. Vast sums of gold and gems are being lost to a clever gang of thieves operating on both sides of the Channel, yet Matthew and his partner are unable to capture the villains. A problem that is keeping him too busy to explore that ever-tantalizing trail that might lead to royal relatives. And then, just as he is on the verge of combining his search for the thieves with the long-postponed search for his heritage, yet another dramatic problem crops up.

Warning: The Matthew Wolfe series is a return to an old tradition—one long story told in installments, each with a cliff-hanger ending. So please do not expect Happily Ever After until the final book.

The Making of Matthew Wolfe

 

Book One

Published: November 2020

Publisher: Kone Enterprises

Welcome to a Regency series with a twist! Although the Matthew Wolfe books feature the adventures of a supposed nobody off the mean streets of London, they are designed for Covid relief—light, warm-hearted, even whimsical. Hopefully, by the time Matthew has found his Happily Ever After, our World will have righted itself and we will be well on our way back to normal. Meanwhile, here is the first in a series of novellas told as an old-fashioned “serial,” each book with a cliff-hanger ending.

Matthew Wolfe, born and raised in the squalor of London’s inner city, should be a nobody, forever destined to obscurity, or the hangman. But wait . . . he can read and write, is a whiz at math, can speak like a gentleman, even knows more than a bit of French. And when the boy from London ends up on a hops farm in Kent, surrounded by the remnants of the Royal 10th Hussars and a passel of children, what will this fish out of water do? Retired military and their ladies, children, dogs, a regal cat, neighbors in need, and a determined twelve-year-old—all assist Matthew on his journey toward the person he is meant to be.

Gothic Regency Romance

Released: August 2020

Publisher: Kone Enterprises

Independent and capable Prudence Wedderburn, daughter of a vicar, is a
woman before her time. She not only manages the parish duties usually
performed by a vicar’s wife, she has learned the art of healing, and during
her father’s final illness, she also assumes some of his religious
duties—all actions welcomed by her village until her father’s death
abruptly ends her life as First Lady of Kenner’s Cove, Kent.

Well aware she must curb her independence—even learn to practice
subservience, a quality entirely unknown to her—Prudence accepts a
position as governess to a five-year-old girl in Cornwall. Where, alas,
rumors of her activities in Kent plunge her into difficulties with the
church, she clashes with her pupil’s father (an earl), finds herself
hip-deep in smugglers and Cornish legends, is befriended by a 500-year-old
cat, and discovers that someone—several someones?—want to kill
her. Finding a happy ending in a deluge of disasters will be the vicar’s
daughter’s greatest challenge.

About the Author

My mother was a highly successful author of children’s books, and for many
years it never occurred to me it was possible to have two authors in the
same family. I pursued a career in music, as teacher and performer, touring
in the first National Company of The Sound of Music. But only when my
children were off to college did I seriously consider trying my own hand at
writing. And discovered I loved it. To be able to create people, even whole
worlds from the imagination is a never-ending joy.

I was fortunate enough to win a number of writing awards, but after nine
print books, in 2011 I plunged into the world of e-books and never looked
back. It offers a level of creative freedom not to be found anywhere else.
As Blair Bancroft, I have become best known for books set in the Regency
period (early 19th c.)—Regency Gothics, Regency Historicals,
Traditional Regencies, and a series that reveals the darker side of the
Regency era (The Aphrodite Academy). I also write SciFi/Fantasy/Paranormal,
Romantic Suspense, and Mystery, with a Medieval Young Adult and a Steampunk
thrown in for good measure. (I do enjoy experimenting with new
genres.)

I now have more than forty books available through online vendors,
including a non-fiction compilation of all the Writing and Editing tips
posted to my blog since 2011 (Making Magic with Words).

I am an outspoken advocate of “out of the mist” writing. One of
my favorite sayings: I can hardly wait to sit down to my computer each
morning and find out what my characters are going to do today.
