Seven years ago, Sophia Brisbane lost everything—her father, her brother, her family fortune—but worse, was rejected by the man she loved. She’s determined not to yearn for the past and its pleasures—until she encounters Lucien de Roye again. Although he knew Sophia could never be his own, Lucien vowed to retrieve her squandered inheritance—even wagering his very soul to a demon. When Sophia learns what he has done, no force on heaven or earth will convince her to let him pay the demon’s due, no matter what the cost to herself.
Something Wicked This Way Comes was originally published in Spellbound, one of the Haunting of Castle Keyvnor anthologies.
In regards to the Matter of the un-entailed Estate of the late-Jonathan Hambly, 10th Earl of Banfield, be advised that your attendance is urgently required at the reading of his lordship’s Last Will & Testament, to take place on November 1st of this year at Castle Keyvnor in Bocka Morrow, Cornwall.
Mr. Timothy Hunt, Esq.
There were four volumes in the Haunting of Castle Keyvnor anthology in total, each with three Regency romance novellas. The stories all took place at the reading of a will in Cornwall and they overlapped, so that they could be read in any order. The anthologies are no longer available, but in many cases, the individual stories are. Here’s a list of all the included titles, but some authors may have made changes to their editions. (I didn’t.)
