THE DARK VISCOUNT
Genre: Historical Romance
Simmons grabs readers with a well-crafted Regency-set romance. A stormy, bleak landscape; a dark, unwelcoming manor house and mysterious goings-on in the overgrown ominous maze lend a chilling gothic flavor.
Intrigued by the forbidding medieval-style house her brother has inherited, Sydony Marchant explores the tangled labyrinth at the rear of the manor. When childhood friend Viscount Bartholomew Hawthorne arrives on their doorstep unexpectedly, Sydony wonders why he came. The boy she once knew is now a tall, haughty nobleman. And the tomboy Barto remembers in now a desirable, albeit a sharp-tongued, woman.
They're drawn into the mystery that surrounds the manor and the evil that permeates the maze. Most of all, Sydony will face the demonic power of the labyrinth. Will Barto be able to save the life of the woman he finally has come to love? (HARLEQUIN, Oct., 288 pp., $5.99)
