Accursed Abbey: A Steamy Regency Gothic Romance Novel (Nobles & Necromancy Book 1)

Winding Path Books

Will their love deliver them from evil, or will their secrets seal their doom? 

Accursed Abbey is a full length Steamy Regency Gothic Romance novel and Book 1 in the Nobles & Necromancy series.


Nature-loving Elizabeth Whitely is thrust from her sheltered country life in England when the suspicious death of her parents leaves her at the mercy of her father’s mad last testament. She is sent far away to live with her aunt and uncle.

The handsome Viscount Canterbourne rescues Elizabeth from ruffians, and his mysterious story captivates her imagination. His heroics and kindness captivate her heart.

But when she encounters the nightmarish Lord Orefados and realizes the mage has imprisoned her friend in the remains of an ancient abbey, Elizabeth hurtles into a maelstrom of peril and dark sorcery. Can she fight the magician’s madness, or will she be drawn into his strange rites? Will her love be Lord Canterbourne’s boon, or will Elizabeth become the chain that binds him to Orefados forever?

Lord Canterbourne is full of pain and questions at the loss of his estranged father. He seeks answers in his father’s testamentary letter, but it merely sends him on a fool’s errand to deliver a box (which he must never open) to a man he has only ever seen once: shadowy, eccentric Lord Orefados.

He meets Elizabeth and they share an instant connection. Who else can understand his heart but a woman who has also been at the whim of paternal madness, a woman who also bears the stigma of a paternal oddity? Canterbourne knows that they are destined for one another, fated to meet.

But when he discovers his dark family history and a secret wrong against Elizabeth’s parents, Canterbourne fears he can never tell her the truth. Yet, if he doesn’t, he could lose her to the ensorcellments of Orefados, whose obsession with an outlandish ritual is reaching a fever pitch.

Will seducing Elizabeth be the only way to cut her off from Orefados’ spell? Will their love deliver them from evil, or will their secrets seal their doom?

About the author

Tessa Candle is a lawyer, world traveler, and author of rollicking historical regency romance. She also lays claim to the questionable distinction of being happily married to the descendant of a royal bastard.

 

When she is not slaving over the production and release of another novel, or conducting research by reading salacious historical romances with heroines who refuse to be victims, she divides her time between gardening, video editing, traveling, and meeting the outrageous demands of her two highly entitled Samoyed dogs. As they are cute and inclined to think too well of themselves, Tessa surmises that they were probably dukes in a prior incarnation.

Those wishing to remain apprised of the status on her patent for the Rogue-o-matic Self-ripping Bodice should subscribe to Tessa Candle Updates on her website (www.tessacandle.com).
