Secrets Amongst The Mist!
In Mist of Midnight, author Sandra Byrd has written a haunting Gothic romance set in Victorian England—of a mansion mysteriously shrouded by shadowy mists, and secrets as entangled as the overgrown vines surrounding it.
Rebecca Ravenshaw returns from India to claim her family estate in England after the death of her missionary parents. Less than a year earlier, an impostor had taken over her estate and her identity. The fake Miss Ravenshaw had died shortly thereafter, and was hastily buried amongst the ever rising mists surrounding Headbourne House at midnight. Rebecca finds her home and investments have been taken over by the darkly handsome, Captain Luke Whitfield. As Rebecca seeks to prove her identity, she finds herself deeply attracted to Luke. However, she does not trust his intentions and wonders if she could possibly meet the same demise as her impostor. Does Luke want her inheritance or her love...and who was the first "Rebecca" and exactly how did she die?
