velvet-cloak-_front5Today is publication day for The Velvet Cloak of Moonlight at last and I’m so pleased it’s finally out there!  This was one of those novels that was “brewing” in my mind for a long time before I actually started it so it feels like it’s been a long time coming, but I hope readers will enjoy the end result.

Here is the blurb:

“As the velvet cloak of moonlight settled over the ruined towers of Raglan Castle, the shadows beneath them stirred …”

When newly widowed Tess visits Raglan Castle, she experiences an extraordinary vision that transports her to seventeenth-century Wales and a castle on the brink of a siege.

Even when Tess leaves Raglan to return to Merrick Court, her late husband’s home, the strange dreams continue as her life becomes increasingly intertwined with the past. And when the new owner of the estate arrives – New Zealander Josh Owens – the parallels become even more obvious.

But perhaps the visions aren’t just trying to tell their own story, maybe they’re also giving a warning …

Raglan Castle is a very special and magical place – if you’re ever passing by, do stop for a visit if you have the time as it’s well worth it.  The people who defended it so valiantly during the final siege in 1646 must have been very special too and I hope I’ve done them justice!
