Regency Paranormal Romance
Lacey Bright, recently widowed and living beneath the charity of her sister-in-law, leaves London with her son and her housekeeper. She leases Cliff Cottage overlooking the English Channel, hoping to make a livelihood there with her landscape paintings.
Captain Maximilian Stern, a grouchy ghost, haunts his former home, chasing off renters until Lacey arrives. They strike up a deal which will allow her to continue living there, but though a loving bond forms between Lacey and Max, can there ever be a future between a living woman and a ghost?
Orphaned and penniless, CASSANDRA HARCOURT is sent by Agatha Bottomwell, wife of her village's Vicar, to apply as a scullery maid at the London mansion of the Countess of Thornton, Agatha's younger sister. - Arriving in London, Cassie trips and falls into a wet gutter outside the coaching inn, soiling herself and her garments with horse dung. Approached by Prudence Goodbody, a pervert's procurer, Cassie manages to escape Mrs. Goodbody's clutches. DEVEREAUX BALLANGER, EARL OF THORNTON is bored silly. His friends propose a wager: Persuade a common female to fool the ton by turning her into a Regency lady. - To chase away his ennui, Dev agrees. LORD DEVEREAUX'S LADY is a "sweet" Regency. Many thanks to Bernard Shaw's play, Pygmalion, and the movie adaptation of "My Fair Lady."
