‘A Dead Man’s Debt’ by Grace Elliot

The latest addition to my shelf this week, is a competition win hosted by Calum AKA ‘The Secret Writer’

I never win competitions, raffles, tombolas, or anything similar (including the lottery unfortunately), so I was quite excited about it.

I received a lovely email from the author, Grace Elliot, who in her own words, leads a double life, as a vet by day and author of intelligent historical fiction by night.


Celeste Armitage has a plan….and that plan doesn’t include marriage.

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.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
