‘A DEAD MAN’S DEBT’
After deliberately humiliating a suitor, Celeste’s despairing parents exile her to the country. But once there she discovers a sketch book of daring nude studies and is shaken to find the artist is her hostess’s eldest son, Lord Ranulf Charing. This darkly cynical lord is exactly the sort of dissipated rogue she has sworn to avoid…if only her blood didn’t heat at the thought of him.
Nothing is as it seems. Lord Ranulf’s life is a facade. Only he can save the Charing’s from disgrace as a blackmailer seeks to ruin his late brother’s reputation. But just as Ranulf dares to open his heart to Celeste, the fully fury of his nemesis is unleashed…and Ranulf faces a stark choice between family duty and true love. But when Celeste guesses the truth behind his rejection, Ranulf underestimates her resolve to clear his name… and unwittingly places the woman he loves in mortal danger.

HISTORY, ROMANCE AND…CATS! Grace Elliot leads something of a double life. As a vet by day, she is obsessed by all things feline; by night she is the best selling author of historical fiction.
She is an avid reader and turned to writing as a way to de-stress from an emotionally demanding job.
She firmly believes that smart people read romance – as an antidote to the modern world!
Grace only discovered the wonders of social history many years after leaving education and, after working her way through the Tudors and medieval history, finally decided that her passion lay firmly with the Georgian and Regency periods.
Her inspiration to delve into the world of the historical fiction novel came initially from Margaret George, who encouraged her pick up and read her first social history book and Stephanie Laurens , who showed Grace that to fully escape to her new-found world she needed to write about it, which she has, most successfully.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THE BOOK
“A story of blackmail, duty and an unexpected love.”
As this was an author invitation to read and review, a copy of A Dead Man’s Debt, was sent to me free of charge by its author, Grace Elliot.
This in no way influenced any comments I may have expressed about the book, in any blog article I have posted. Any thoughts or comments are my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.
I personally do not agree with ‘rating’ a book, as the overall experience is all a matter of personal taste, which varies from reader to reader. However some review sites do demand a rating value, so when this review is posted to such a site, it will attract a 4 out of 5.
