The Untold Tale of the Winter Duchess
Author: Emma Linfield
Format: Kindle Edition
Because wherever your heart is, that is where you'll find your treasure...
Lillian Newman, wife of the Earl of Clottrahorn, is facing disaster.
When her husband falls victim to poison right in front of her eyes, she becomes not only a widow but also the prime suspect. Desperate to escape prosecution for a crime she never committed, she is left with no other choice: she flees.
Sebastian Hughes, Duke of Parkforton, is on the hunt for a governess for his two unruly brothers. He never expected to find one in a horse shed behind his manor. Especially not one as beautiful and well-mannered as Lillian.
Constables start knocking on the door, looking for a lady, whose description strangely resembles Sebastian's newly-hired governess.
When Lillian falls gravely ill with symptoms suspiciously similar to her husband's right before his death, it becomes apparent that not even a Duke's estate is safe from an enemy that comes from the inside. To unravel Ariadne's Thread, deep they must go, into the wine cellars where the sun doesn't glow...
