Elizabeth Bailey

Author Elizabeth Baileyabout this book: This was a daring book to write in a way. I was tackling the issue of domestic abuse and its consequences, and in an era where men were permitted to beat their wives, there was no easy resolution. Of course beating with a stick was one thing, beating up with fists quite another, and no gentleman of the time would approve.

The violence is once removed from the heroine, but she has seen too much of it to be willing to submit herself to marriage. Venetia has learned to mask her emotions in order not to draw the fire of the abuser, and it is only when she meets the light-hearted charming Denzell that her defences stand in danger of crumbling.

Intrigued by this beautiful ice maiden, Denzell puts forth his best efforts to break down the mask, but when he does, the vulnerability underneath pierces his heart. This story is an emotional journey for both, but there are plenty of lighter moments that keep the froth bubbling throughout.
