Elizabeth Baileyabout this book: When girls got into trouble in the Regency era, they were sometimes thrown out of their homes to fend for themselves. It struck me how cruel this was, and I wondered what would happen to a heroine who was literally thrown out of the house, in the clothes she stood up in and nothing else.
This is the scenario I envisaged for Isolde. She is not, of course, in the kind of trouble we're talking about above. Instead, she falls foul of a jealous woman who not only throws her out but beats her up into the bargain. It's winter. There is snow on the ground. What in the world is going to happen to her?
I began with this premise, but then had to get my heroine to this point. And so was born In Honour Bound. Isolde is an orphan, sent to England to the man who agreed to be her guardian. Only he's dead and his son has taken his place.
Will Richard save Isolde or use her for his own ends? He's in difficulties himself, and the situation grows problematic when he discovers his enemy is none other than Isolde's estranged uncle. What's more, Isolde has been brought up more boy than girl and has none of the social graces required by young ladies.
If you love Cinderella themes, this one delivers as the first in a series of similar stories, Brides by Chance.
