Monday Image - Wentworth Castle

Wentworth Castle, Yorkshire.

This lovely image inspired Strathairn Hall, the home of my hero, John Haldane, Earl of Strathairn in Taming a Gentleman Spy - The Spies of Mayfair, Book Two. Coming September, 2013 to Knox Robinson Publishing.

John Haldane, Earl of Strathairn, has a pressing mission. Someone is killing his fellow spies. Might the treasonous Frenchman, Count Forney have returned to England to wreak havoc? After visiting the young widow of one of his agents, Strathairn strengthens his resolve never to marry. And most certainly not to Lady Sibella Winborne, with her romantic ideas of love and marriage. Unable to give Sibella up entirely, he keeps her close as a friend. Then, weak fool that he is, he kisses her…

Lady Sibella Winborne has refused several offers of marriage since her come-out several years ago – when she first set eyes on the handsome Earl of Strathairn. Sibella’s sisters always rush to her aid to discourage an ardent suitor, but not this time. Her elder brother, Sebastian, Marquess of Brandreth, has approved the enigmatic Lord Coombe’s suit. At three and twenty, Sibella yearns to set up her own household. She is known to be the sensible member of the family, but she doesn’t feel at all sensible about Lord Strathairn. If only she could forget that kiss…
