Sea of Secrets

(2012)
A novel by

 
 
Can love conquer the shadows of suspicion - and murder?

When innocent young Oriel Pembroke is disowned by her cruel father in 1855 and takes refuge at the sumptuous seaside estate of Ellsmere, she doesn't expect to fall in love with the brooding young duke, Herron - or to find her fragile new happiness tainted by his suspicions about the death of his father. Did his uncle truly murder the late duke, or is Herron's grief tipping into madness? As Oriel tries to uncover the truth, she learns that there may be a shocking secret in her own past... a secret that could put her own life in danger.

Sea of Secrets is a haunting return to the traditional gothic romance as perfected by Barbara Michaels and Daphne du Maurier, as well as a fascinating take on Shakespeare's Hamlet reimagined for a Victorian gothic setting. Find out why Oriel's story was awarded the 2012 Reward of Novel Excellence and has been hailed as "a beautiful and suspenseful novel that is a pure pleasure to read" (InD'Tale Magazine) and "a haunting, gripping saga that will keep you flipping the pages" (Gothic Romance Reviews). Whether you are a fan of historical mysteries, coming-of-age stories, or richly imagined women's fiction, you won't want to miss Sea of Secrets.

Includes book club discussion questions.
