Rushbrooke End (Book 4)
"There was a hundred worlds waiting for her in the darkness, worlds where no one knew her and she could be someone new every day. Worlds where there were new stories to be discovered everyday and new characters to meet.

Lilly Thorpe has never shown an interest for love in her own life. She has always been content with her romance novels, ignoring the going ons of her large and busy family. When the Thorpes embark on a journey to Hertfordshire Lilly makes the acquaintance of the intelligent, mysterious but handsome Earl of Tavistock.
The earl and his home, the gothic Rushbrooke End, are both shrouded in secrets and mysteries, including the strange circumstances that surround his mother and sister's deaths.
In a holiday of secrets, madness and envy, Lilly finds that perhaps real life can be just as thrilling as her beloved novels.
