This series is about five friends who promised, as children, to always be there for one another no matter what calamities or joys life had in store for them. Now they are all grown up and things are not as easy as they once thought they would be. The series is named after the place where they spent their happiest summers together, the Inglewood Keep.
Silas Riley, the Earl of Inglewood, is the leader of the five friends. He inherited his title young and has learned, through the years, that not everyone is honest about their motives to befriend him. Distracted by his duties in the House of Lords, and keeping up his appearance as a man with a heart of stone, he nearly loses his life. Silas is saved by the actions of a young woman he never took much time to notice, even though she is the younger sister of his best friend.
Hope and Grace Everly are twin sisters, as unalike in personality as they are alike in appearance. Hope is everything that is daring and bold, often forgetting to think of the consequences to her actions, and she thirsts for adventure. Grace, on the other hand, is thoughtful, subdued, and would rather spend time in conversation than in action. They love each other dearly and, in their books (I would not be so unkind as to make them share a single title), they sacrifice a great deal for each other and for love.
Jacob Barnes has been lost in a sea of siblings all his life, and as a younger son has had to choose a profession to support himself and any future Mrs. Barnes. Thankfully, he is suited for the life of a country vicar and has a living prepared. Ready to make a life for himself, Jacob has to put his plans aside when one of his friends comes to him in desperate need of help.
Sir Isaac, a baronet, is the elder brother of Esther and a man returned from the war against Napoleon. Though he tries to resume his normal life, the war has left him a changed man in more ways than one. Restless, lacking the confidence he once had in abundance, Isaac yearns for a simpler time and for someone he can confide in. Of course, I have a certain young lady in mind to help him find happiness again.
The plan is to have all four romances published before the year is out. I cannot wait for you to meet these characters who have been in my head for quite some time.
I write clean and sweet Historical Romance Novels, I live in the desert, I'm a mom of four, madly in love with my husband, and I love to read!
