Blurb: Five years after his supposed death, Theo King has returned to Graceling Hall…but a mystery remains. A stranger is buried in his grave, and nobody knows if his death was accidental…or murder. As Theo resumes his former life, the dead man’s sister shows up on his doorstep to hold him accountable. If he helps this Irish spitfire solve the mystery, will she finally leave him in peace?
“Did you know someone has been leaving flowers on your grave for years?” Brandon asked. “I think you’ve a secret admirer.”
Theo frowned. “If I’ve been the cause of any heartache, I’m devastated.”
“On the other hand, when the lady in question learns you’re alive, she’ll be overjoyed,” Larken said.
“I wonder who it could be? I believe we’ve a mystery on our hands,” Rowe said.
“The matter may never be resolved,” Clarissa said.
“Indeed, it may not,” Theo said. “I daresay no lovestruck ladies will ever show up on my doorstep.”
A commotion in the entrance hall drew his attention just then as a young woman remonstrated with the butler to let her pass. Rowe gave Theo a startled glance. “Perhaps you spoke too soon?”
When the argument continued, Theo set down his cup. “It seems Seagate needs help.” Before he could take more than a few steps, however, a dark-haired woman dashed through the doorway.
“Which one o’ ye is Theodore King?” Her Irish brogue was thicker than the froth floating on top of the hot cider.
“Sorry, sir, but she wouldn’t take no for an answer.” The butler grabbed the woman by the arm.
“It’s all right. Let her go, Seagate,” Theo said.
“As you wish, sir.”
The woman wrenched herself free from the butler’s grasp and glared at him. “I’ve half a mind to slap ye for puttin’ your hands on me, ye big galoot.”
Theo caught Seagate’s eye and dismissed him with a movement of his head. After the butler left, he bowed to the newcomer.
“Theodore King, at your service.”
“Are ye nigh? My name is Megan Shields, and you’re responsible for the death o’ my brother.”

Larken (Volume One of the Graceling Hall series)
The sole survivor of a train accident, young Larken Burke is dubbed the Miracle Orphan. Four years later, however, her life is far from fortunate. Because of her emotional and physical scars, she believes she’s not marriageable. With little hope for the future, she agrees to wed a gentleman she’s never met. Unfortunately, his aloof manner proves difficult to bear.
Marked by romantic tragedy and the loss of his brother, Brandon King has forsworn marriage. Obliged to take in a ward, he advertises for a bride to raise the boy. Since the union is to be a marriage in name only, his criteria are youthful age, a certain level of intellect, good breeding, and that the girl shouldn’t be so ill-favored she would embarrass him in society. To his dismay, he gets more than he’d bargained for.
Will it take a miracle for Mr. and Mrs. King to fall in love, or is their marriage another accident waiting to happen?
