Welcome to Abbey Mead - Vol. 12

Dear Friends of Abbey Mead,


The Lady’s Prayer will be released as an ebook on July 17th, but you can preorder it SOON on


BACK COVER TEXT for The Lady’s Prayer:

With one breathless and unforgettable embrace, William and Anne finally disclosed their love for one another. Now they face an uncertain future. The Viscount Westmeare holds all the cards and this dealer demands to be obeyed.

But William and Anne confront a more immediate and lethal problem. In 1813, the Indian countryside is ablaze as danger, destruction, and even death loom beyond the walls of their remote fortress.

The terror of kidnap, warfare, and shipwreck threaten their very lives. Will they survive the perils that lie ahead?

Through it all, William whispers to his beloved Anne,

“I will love ye, lass, as long as I have breath.”

Through it all, the lady’s prayer echoes over space and time: “Send him home, send him home.”

Across three continents. Two star-crossed lovers. One abiding love…

Yippee!!! I am once more happy dancing through the halls of Hartwood Manor!! And celebrating with another tray of Mrs. Clarke’s Raspberry Tarts!

And William and Anne are verra pleased to again appear in print! They hope you enjoy their continuing saga. But hold on for a bumpy ride! This book is a page turner! But remember, although their present road is quite a bit rough, smooth sailing lies ahead…

FYI… Today’s romances (whether historical, contemporary, paranormal, etc.) are pretty much guaranteed to offer a satisfactory or happy ever after ending. So keep turning those pages…
