Folly at Sausmarez Manor – A Majestic Estates Series Novella
One act of chivalry is all it takes and good sense turns to folly.
The folly begins when Lady Cordelia "Delia" Rutledge and her family visit Sausmarez Manor on Guernsey Island in the fall of 1801. And why not? It’s the perfect stopover on their way to the continent for reasons that can only be discussed in confidence.
Marshall Compton, Marquess of Daventry, and archeologist extraordinaire certainly isn’t aware of their visit until he offers to escort Lady Delia to see prehistoric ruins on the island. This piece of chivalry lands him a fiancée he’s not sure he wants, in-laws he knows he can do without, and run-ins with the Russians. Or are they pirates? Perhaps witches or the fairy king himself is involved in the mix. One thing is sure. Marshall’s plans for an Indian expedition are lost.
