A dead fiancé, an inheritance she never expected and a lawyer who may not have her best interests at heart, greet Bella when she arrives from England to marry a man who has died. There's a restriction. She must have the dilapidated house returned to its former glory before she gains title to the house and a prosperous mill. Some is just as anxious to have Bella return to England. Is it the arrogant lawyer, the handsome brother, one of the belligerent servants, or someone she has yet to meet? And if she refuses to retreat, will she forfeit her life?

   Excerpt
Summer lightning stabbed through the boiling storm clouds of the August afternoon. The pounding of ocean surf against granite rocks drowned out the distant rumble of thunder and muffled the screeching calls of fleeing sea birds. I stared at the monstrous house and the sheet of rock leading to the sea--the promontory of Owl's Head. It was a desolate picture.

A surge of foreboding shot through me and I stared at the massing gray puffs and swirls. The last thing I wanted was rain.

Grabbing my umbrella from the carriage seat, I hung onto it as one would hang onto a rope over a precipice. With my umbrella clutched tightly in my grasp, I prayed the bent little man on the sagging porch wouldn't notice my trembling hands.

Panic flared as his dark eyes wandered over my dove gray traveling gown. He glared at me and I retreated a step, swallowing my fear.

"You was expected a month ago, Isabel Morrison."

His words poured over me. "Jonathan Besserman ain't here. He's dead."


Professional Reviews

Terrie Figueroa, Romance Communications
After the death of her father Isabel Morrison travels to Maine to marry Jonathan Besserman. Upon her arrival she finds that Jonathan has died and left her Hopemore House, if she agrees to restore the old house to it's former glory. From the moment Isabel arrives she gets a feeling of discomfort about the eerie house and it's occupants. When accidents and strange occurrences begin to plague Isabel, she's not sure who to suspect, Jonathan's handsome, golden brother Theodore, or the dark and brooding attorney, Duncan Ross. Whoever is behind the mishaps is surely trying to drive her from Hopemore before she can fulfill the stipulations in Jonathan's will. THE BRIDES OF OWL'S HEAD is a gothic novel in its truest form. It is reminiscent of gothic divas such as Victoria Holt and Phyllis Whitney. The story is told in the first person from Isabel's perspective. The story carries the reader along through Isabelle's thoughts and actions. The dialogue, while sparse, is believ! able and well done. The story is interesting and unfolds at an even pace. A sense of menace flows throughout the story and as it unfolds the tension mounts. I would recommend THE BRIDES OF OWL'S HEAD to readers who enjoy traditional gothic novels that have just a touch of romance.
