The Hidden Countess: A black robe brought her and a black robe would take her away. The woman known as Jonnet Killey, secreted on the Isle of Man for her own protection during the English Civil War, has always known that one day her birth family would reclaim her. Raised in seclusion by her foster mother, a woman whom the island’s inhabitants deem mad, Jonnet knows nothing of the ways of nobility or life beyond her rustic island home. When she sees a black robed man rowing to her croft’s shore, she knows that her peaceful childhood is over and the adventure of a lifetime is about to begin. The King’s Man: Simon Burke is a man fiercely loyal to the Royalist cause. Haunted by guilt over a failed mission for the Crown, he has no room in his life for anything or anyone else, especially not an intriguing minx from the Isle of Man. All he wants is to carry out his mission to return Jonnet to her birth mother, Jacoba, Lady Albyn, who will provide much needed funds to finance Charles Stuart’s return to British soil once her daughter has been restored. Nothing he had ever known could have prepared him for what lay ahead. An Adventure in Exile: Jonnet and Simon trace a carefully planned route to Lady Albyn’s temporary home in Dutch exile, as well as the uncharted waters of the heart. Jonnet soon finds that Simon is her only constant when she must leave her old identity behind and become Lady Easter Hastings, the noble daughter Lady Albyn expects. Only when Lady Albyn is satisfied that Jonnet truly is Easter, will she honor her side of the bargain. Simon remains determined to carry out his mission, but vows he will never let Jonnet’s new life as Easter eclipse the woman who has affected him like no one else. A new world awaits Jonnet when she meets her mother’s family. Traumatized by her many losses, Lady Albyn obsesses over a fantasy of her perfect child, one Jonnet knows she can never be. Her mother’s husband, Sir Gerald, regards Jonnet with a sceptical eye, jealous of Lady Albyn’s fixation on her daughter. Her half siblings are no better, one waspish, the other sickly and timid. She finds a formiddable enemy in her uncle, who will stop at nothing to eliminate his brother’s only heir and secure Jonnet’s inheritance for himself. Simon finds falling in love is a heady complication when he delivers Lady Albyn’s jewels to the king, only to discover the choicest pieces have been replaced with cunning counterfiets. Charles entrusts Simon with the task of uncovering the culprit, who must certainly be one of the exiles in Lady Albyn’s home. While the end of exile nears, danger mounts. Lady Albyn teeters on the brink of madness, and an attempt on Jonnet’s life spurs her to make a rash proposal to secure both her future and Simon’s, as the viper in her family’s bosom prepares to strike. Simon and Jonnet must depend on their love to sustain them through their greatest trials yet as a storm of treachery rages around them.
