Some scenes are more or less sketches, but the rough draft for The Darkest Hour is done!
36,000 words, about 170 pages
The Darkest Hour is a standalone Regency romance novella, and also a prequel to The Darkest Summer. It is about the hero’s sister’s romance the year before.
The Darkest Hour:
When Lady Hester discovers her brother Adam, the Duke of Blackdale, was injured in the Battle of Waterloo, she rushes from Scotland to Belgium to be by his side. Her minister, the widowed Reverend Alasdair Gilchrist, escorts her on the journey. She is determined to keep her brother alive, and to keep her greatest secret: she’s been in love with Mr. Gilchrist for years.
I’ll be designing the cover, and hope to release this novella before November.
The Darkest Summer goes to press next month!
