New Ebook - Absolute Pleasures

This is an epic tale of romance and tempestuous adventure, beginning with the story of Elizabeth, the only child of Lord and Lady Thoresby. Keen for her daughter to make a suitable match, Lady Thoresby schemes to engineer a proposal from the wealthy but odious Sir Gervase Morden. Elizabeth has a mind of her own, rejects his crude and sadistic advances, and elopes with the man she loves - Lord Thoresby's groom, Edward. The pair marry and journey to India using an assumed name, settling in a British suburb in Calcutta, where Edward is employed by the powerful East India Trading company. Their daughter Constance is born and life is good for many years, until a tragic event, combined with the unstable political situation, forces Elizabeth to send Constance back to England to seek safety with her grandparents. But events do not go according to plan, and Constance needs all her resilience to escape her plight. Even on board the S.S. Western there are ordeals to be faced. She may have escaped the Indian mutiny, but falls prey to other dangers on the long journey to England.

Reaching England, Constance travels to Suffolk, only to find that Thoresby Hall is practically deserted, as its occupants have left for six weeks in Scotland. Salvation comes in the unlikely guise of the dour Mrs Cross, housekeeper at Gatley Park. She has returned with new staff from the hiring fair, but is short of a kitchen maid. Constance seizes her opportunity, determined to return to Thoresby in six weeks time. She settles into domestic service and on her afternoon off 'borrows' a horse and enjoys a wild gallop through the estate, where she is pursued by the owner of Gatley Park, Lord Harper. There is an immediate attraction, and the pair regularly enjoy each others company - much to the annoyance of Lord Harper's mother. Love blooms and intimacies are shared, but by the time Lord Harper recognises his true feelings, catastrophe strikes. Heartbroken, Constance leaves Gatley Park and the only sanctuary she can find is behind the bar in a coaching inn 55 miles away, where there are further indignities to be faced. Her life is wretched, but destiny lends a hand to shape her future.
