Downton Abbey was a great hit in our household as it was in much of the world. That's why I loved the cover of my erotic Regency Lady Lovett's Little Dilemma. It seemed to epitomise the lost world of manners and constrained desire which resonates through my poignant, bittersweet, but ultimately uplifting romance.
Having weathered twenty years of what has been a very happy marriage, inevitably characterised by highs and lows, I felt qualified to write this story about an eight-year married couple - though I never had to face down my husband's former mistress.
Lady Lovett's Little Dilemma is as much about loyalty among women as it is the love of a sweet and desired wife for a husband for whom she has not the vocabulary to voice her fears about conception. Cressida's upbringing has not equipped her for a life of marital felicity. Fortunately she meets, under unusual circumstances, someone who can help her. Throw into the mix the mystery of a missing child plus three Happy Ever Afters and you've got Lady Lovett's Little Dilemma.
