Mistress of Merrivale in Photos and Words

My historical romance, Mistress of Merrivale comes out on Tuesday from Samhain Publishing. I’m very excited about this book, and this week I’m going out on tour with Bewitching Book Tours.

Today I have a spotlight at Clutter Your Kindle and a review at Nicky Peacock Author.

Mistress of Merrivale is set in the 18th century and the action starts in London. While this house isn’t like Jocelyn’s town house, it is from the period. Don’t you love the windows and door?


“My mother is having a bad turn. She insists someone is watching the house and spying on us.” It was a relief to share the latest drama with Melburn.

“Have you investigated to allay her concerns?”

Jocelyn resisted the urge to roll her eyes. “We have been more vigilant than usual. I haven’t noticed anyone suspicious and neither has Woodley or Tilly, but Mother is steadfast in her charges.”

Her butler and her mother’s nurse were equally adamant no one lurked in the alley outside their Cork Street house. While it wasn’t the best location in London, a night watchman patrolled the surrounding streets, and lamps chased away most of the gloomy shadows once evening fell.

  1. I love old homes, the styles are just so interesting.

  2. I like ones that have lots of space, but I’m not as keen on cottages with lots of poky rooms. Georgian is my favorite because of the large rooms and high ceilings.

  3. I’ve always had a fondness for homes with lots of windows.

    It brings back an era before central air and the sweet smell of flowers on the breeze.

  4. I love all the windows too, but I bet they had to pay a bit of window tax when the govt was making money that way!
