The Swanlea Spinsters
Those Swanlea Spinsters…
It started out with three sisters, daughters to the Earl of Swanlea. Condemned to spinsterhood by circumstances (and bad luck), Lady Rosalind, Lady Helena, and Lady Juliet are struggling to make ends meet with an ill father and an underfunded estate. That’s when Griffith Knighton and Daniel Brennan make an appearance to change their lives forever. From there, matters follow a strange path: Juliet is kidnapped by a man named Morgan who turns out to be a man named Sebastian who actually does have a twin named Morgan with a friend named Ravenswood… and yes, they all have books.
All right, I got carried away. But the end result is this series of five books (the first three of which really should be read in order), which has won awards, hit bestseller lists, and garnered wide reader acclaim. Hope you enjoy it!
Note: These books are a series in the sense that they are set in a shared world and some characters make appearances in later books. They can, however, easily be standalones. Feel free to jump in wherever you like.
