About the Devereaux story:
There is a sinister secret in the Devereaux family. Lovely Anna has recently married the Devereaux heir and would prefer to settle into her delightful new home with her handsome, beloved husband. She is enjoying the grand rooms at the mansion where the Devereaux family has entertained royalty along with good neighbors for generations. Anna is no stranger to society. The lovely gowns that she has been accumulating since returning from her romantic honeymoon are thrilling to touch and feel, even though she has had fine gowns before. Anna’s newest finery is special because each has been created for her. She feels lovely as Anna Devereaux, wife of nobility. Anna is more than a well-bred school girl from sufficient ‘quality’ to make her an acceptable bridal choice. Anna is in a nutshell, having a great time getting used to her new life role.
Then, this terrifying element of the new family and home begins to move in on her. She has ‘extra-sensory’ feelings about the evil that seeps into their days like a damp, cranky mist. It becomes more clear that she and her husband, plus their grand estate are at risk. No one except Anna seems to be aware or concerned about the sinister secret lurking and waiting for a chance to destroy them all. Ghosts begin to speak to her. Are they guiding her toward victory or are they part of the threat?
Anna is stubborn and refuses to let her sanity crack. She begins to delve into the history of the Devereaux Estate only to learn that she alone can set things right! Anna, alone! That wasn’t part of the new home setting she had planned for her married life! Stubborn, intelligent and beautiful, Anna still feels inadequate to meet this challenge. There is no one she can go to…she is sure that her husband loves her, but with others in the family, still consider her a pretty accessory who should be content with her place. How can she find the strength to defy the evil and keep the Devereaux Estate along with the mysterious Devereaux Jewel in the hands of family where they belong?
The book is ready for you to enjoy on your Kindle account at Amazon right now with the print release scheduled for November 11, 2017.
