Lady Hartley's Inheritance

I am very excited about my first novel, Lady Hartley's Inheritance, being published by Robert Hale in April. Let me tell you a little bit about it.

Clarissa Hartley, a young widow, reluctantly leaves her native Northumberland, and her prize herd of Cheviot sheep, in order to travel to London and meet her man of business, supposing he requires to see her in order to inform her that her late-husband's affairs have been settled at last. When she discovers instead that Sir Michael, a famous Egyptologist, had an illigitimate son she knew nothing about, and that he has come forward to claim his father's estate, she fears she has lost everything.

Whilst in London Clarissa is residing with her Godmother, The Countess of Newbury, but can barely tolerate the presence of her son, the current earl, Luc Deverill, whom she regards as a wastrel and rake.

When Luc learns of Clarissa's difficulties he immediately suspects fraud. Can Clarissa put aside her dislike of Luc and work with him to uncover the truth? And could there ever be any hope for romance between such an unlikely couple as this country-loving widow and a pink of the ton such as Luc?
