From wild and rugged Cornwall, the setting of Poldark and Jamaica Inn, comes another fabulous, dramatic story…


When she arrives at Beresford Abbey, orphan Mary Wilder’s hopes of finding a place to belong are dashed when she meets Bane Beresford, the enigmatic Earl. He is as remote as the ghosts that supposedly haunt the Abbey…and, like its crumbling walls, her dreams fall apart. Occasionally she sees a different, more caring man behind the façade, so is she foolish to long for a happy home…and a family?

His proposal is for a marriage of convenience, but his touch has awakened within her a fervent and forbidden longing…

Original Title - Haunted by the Earl's Touch


Four wonderful atmospheric historical romances - perfect for fans of Winston Graham's Ross Poldark and Demelza, and Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca and Jamaica Inn.





For once an appropriate title

Rating By Mia-maria,31/01/2013

Very well written, with lovely characters and a good twist on a classic plot.

A bit different

Rating By R,12/03/2013

Quite an unusual plot with the setting a haunted house in the depths of Cornwall. Bane was a dashing and enigmatic Regency hero but Mary while seemingly an intelligent person knowing that her life was endangered seemed to ignore this with some of the situations she put herself into. She should have had more faith in Bane. Although it was easy enough to work out the plot that bit of difference made this an entertaining read. Eight out of ten

Not great for searching out back catalogue

Rating By Anonymous,

Service rating : I find it quite hard to search for books on your site. I tend to search by author & it doesn't seem to bring up all the back catalogue for that author. I'd really like to be able to put in a name & then see ALL the books you have available for that person. Instead I sometimes have to put in specific titles, sometimes author, sometimes something more general. It just seems a bit of a long-winded way to find stuff. So I often go elsewhere rather than buy from you.
Product : I have no problems once I find a book & download it. Now I understand how to save them to my cloud drive, I can then open them easily via an app.
