Ravensdale

(2014)
(The second book in the Scoundrel Emile Dubois series)
A novel by

 
 
The author is proud to announce that this novel has become her second to win a B.R.A.G medallion for outstanding self-published fiction.

For those who love a satire on the cliches of historical romance, which at the same time draws them into the adventure.

When the group of highwaymen, headed by the disgraced Earl Ravensdale hold up the hoydenish Isabella Murray's coach, she knocks one of them down and lectures them all on following Robin Hood's example. In fact, she has been long resisting the urge to escape from her parents' plans for her advantageous marriage and become one herself.

The rascally Reynaud Ravensdale - otherwise known as the dashing highwayman Mr Fox - is fascinated by her spirit.

He escaped abroad three years back when he fell under suspicion of shooting a friend dead after a quarrel. Rumour has it that his far more respectable cousin was involved. Now, having come back during his father's last illness, the young Earl has largely lost hope of clearing his name of murder, living as an outlaw as he is, and having sworn to protect someone else who was involved in the quarrel.

Isabella's ambitious parents are eager to marry her off to Ravensdale's cousin, the next in line to his title. The totally unromantic Isabella is even ready to elope with her outlaw admirer to escape this fate - on condition that he teaches her how to be a highwaywoman herself.

This hilarious spoof uses vivid characters and lively comedy to bring new life to a theme traditionally favoured by historical novelists - that of the wild young Earl, who, falsely accused of murder by the machinations of a conniving cousin and prejudged by his reputation, takes up life as an outlaw.

'Ravensdale' is a fast paced, funny and light hearted read from the writer of 'That Scoundrel Emile Dubois', and follows the adventures of Emile Dubois' equally roguish cousin just prior to the outbreak of the French Revolutionary Wars. It can be read as an independent novel.
