Lady Anne Addison
the Lady Anne Addison Mystery Series:
ANNE ADDISON, plain and feisty Georgian-era spinster, is nobody’s
fool. So when a newly-married friend writes to her that there is a werewolf
loose near her new home in Yorkshire, and it threatens to tear them all apart,
she is skeptical. Logic dictates that tales of the supernatural are told to
fool the frightened and frighten the foolish. As she is neither frightened
nor foolish, she will look for rational explanations. But
is everything so easily explained as all that?
Her natural good sense tells her that the mysterious
Marquess of Darkefell (her friend’s new brother-in-law) – as alluring and
attractive as she finds him – is hiding something. Whether it is something
sinister or merely secret, she isn’t sure. But she intends to find out.
Follow the indomitable Lady Anne as she travels
England hunting werewolves, ghostbusting and exposing gypsy curses, all accompanied
by her intelligent maid, Mary, Mary’s son, Wee Robbie, and her enormous and
determined cat, Irusan.

Lady Anne Addison Mystery #2
Fleeing the attentions of the handsome
and commanding Marquess of Darkefell, Lady Anne Addison arrives
on the doorstep of a dear friend seeking nothing but rest and relaxation,
but soon finds herself putting her investigative talents to work after a sighting
of the Barbary Ghost. Always a skeptic of the supernatural, Lady Anne immediately
suspects the apparition is nothing more than a diversionary tactic to conceal
smugglers on the beach below her friend’s house.
When the beguiling marquess follows her to Cornwall, Anne
is distracted from her ghost hunt by his alluring kisses, until murder gets
her attention. Forced once again to work with the marquess to uncover the
truth behind a mystery, she soon discovers that her passionate attraction
to him has not abated. Should she run from him again, or give in to temptation?

Lady Anne Addison Mystery #3
Finally home in Kent after her recent adventures in Yorkshire and Cornwall,
Lady Anne Addison is shocked to spy her erstwhile
suitor, the Marquess of Darkefell, skulking around the gypsy camps near her
property. Outraged that he has followed her there, she writes a scathing letter
to him and his family, which brings Darkefell— and his denials that it was
he— to Kent.
Despite Darkefell’s arrival, Anne is preoccupied with the
troubles that plague her family and loved ones. Is it the old gypsy woman’s
curse that is making her friends ill, or something far more sinister? One
by one, Anne and Darkefell must unravel the troubling mysteries, and then
travel back to Yorkshire, where their love story began, to finally solve
the murder that threatens the very heart of his family . . .
