This is also an historical romance, but because of its mystery theme, I'm posting it here.
What if you lived in Victorian London, the time of Jack the Ripper? What if you were one of the women he attacked, yet you managed to escape? And what if you knew he needed to find you and silence you before you identified him?
New maid Dorcy Edwards spurns her wealthy employer’s attempts to seduce her. When he becomes a victim of the person the newspapers call “Jack the Ripper,” estranged son Gareth Davenport returns to London to handle his father’s affairs. Dorcy puzzles over what the handsome, brooding heir might be hiding behind his eye patch and black leather gloves. As circumstances unfold to expose the killer’s identity, Dorcy’s plunged into a nightmare, convinced Gareth is none other than the infamous murderer. But is Dorcy’s life what Gareth seeks? Or nothing more easily broken than her heart?
