The village of Montvale is atwitter with news of its most notorious resident. The Duke of Montvale, dubbed the Monster for his dark and frightening ways seems to be playing host to a house guest. A young lady!
Though his dashing friend The Marquess of Avondale is no stranger to Montvale, it has been quite unheard of for anyone else to brave the wrath of the Monster and visit the Hall. Yet it seems one such person exists.
One Miss Abigail Langton recently arrived from The Americas has not only visited, but is staying at Montvale Hall.
And if our sources are to be believed, she has turned the place on its ear. The duke too!
Though the servants of the house remain as tight-lipped as they did all those years ago when tragedy struck the Montvale family, Miss Langton has been making her presence known in the village and apparently in the house.
We do wonder if poor Miss Langton knows what she’s let herself in for.
Though perhaps we should be wondering if the duke knows what he’s let himself in for.
We have no doubt that something monumental will come from this unprecedented event.
As for what that could be? Well, we shall just have to wait and see.
The Monster of Montvale Hall Blurb
A childhood tragedy had shaped the life of Robert Forsythe, the Duke of Montvale Hall, forever.
He kept himself isolated from the world and the people in it, revelling in his reputation as a monster.
Locked in a world of guilt and grief, nobody had ever been able to break down the walls he kept around him. Nobody had ever tried.
And if being a monster kept everyone away, then a monster he would be.
Abigail Langton was as headstrong as she was mischievous, so it was no surprise that she wasn’t exactly welcomed at Montvale Hall with open arms.
It didn’t take her long to understand why its owner was called a monster.
It took even less time to realise that monster or not, Abigail’s heart called to him in a way she couldn’t deny or understand.
Robert’s world is turned upside down and inside out by the irrepressible Abigail. And try as he might to avoid it, he finds himself drawn to her in ways he doesn’t want. In ways that scare the wits out of him.
Will Robert give in to the temptation that is Abigail? And will Abigail find the heart of the man beneath the monster?
