(2013)
(The first book in the Scoundrel Emile Dubois series)
A novel by

 
'That Scoundrel Emile Dubois' has been honoured with the prestigious B.R.A.G medallion for outstanding fiction.
Plunge into a world of over-the-top Gothic adventure and darkly comic happenings and met the wicked Emile Dubois, and the determined Sophie, who will not let him turn into a vulpine predator.
Sophie de Courcy, living during the time of the French Revolutionary Wars on an isolated mountain in North Wales as the bored companion to a kind elderly countess, dreams of excitement and romance. When she meets her long term hero,her grand distant relative, the dashing but wicked Emile Dubois, she has more adventure than she ever wanted.
Caught up in occult happenings with predatory half vampires and time warps, Sophie finds herself living in true Gothic style in an isolated mansion staffed by Emile's villainous accomplices.
With the help of her fearless Tarot reading maid, Sophie must somehow help Emile to overcome the sinister changes that are removing his humanity, and to defeat their evil, half-human neighbours who need him to further their occult schemes.
Set largely in the remote countryside of North Wales, UK, this occult adventure is both a spoof of traditional Gothic themes and a vivid love story.
Half Vampires, time travel, highwaymen, love and dark comedy combine for enthralling adventure as two eighteenth century French scoundrels are incongruously drawn into occult adventure, while their love interests, the romantic Sophie and her loyal ally Agnes stubbornly refuse to allow them to lose their dwindling humanity.
