Mill Bay, British Columbia (PRWEB) October 21, 2013
In “The House on Becket Lane” (published by iUniverse), Elizabeth Chanter’s 2011 Victorian romance novel which is getting a revived marketing push in 2013, Lord Dashell Lonsdale, one of London’s most eligible bachelors, faces an increasingly obvious fact: his family’s fortune is not as secure as he believes.
With his world effectively shaken, Lord Lonsdale has a chance encounter with Caroline, an unknown lady on the street. Caroline is the younger of two daughters of a family that carries a burden of secrets as well. All they know is that their mother’s tongue was silenced by fear, and she took her secret to her grave. Now Caroline lives in a house with only her stepfather to guide her.
Lord Lonsdale exploits his station to learn of her identity and where she lives. His arrival triggers an angry quarrel between Caroline and her stepfather. Horrified to have caused such tension within her family, he departs with the promise to return the next day.
But duty calls him away before he can keep his promise. He learns that, thanks to the gambling debts of his brother, his family is on the brink of financial ruin. He has no choice but to turn his attention to restoring the family’s fortunes and honor. Now Caroline has her own secret to share, and what she must tell him may end their love before it can begin.
