More > Lucy, 21st century high school students. They are caught between the controlling behaviour of Jim’s parents and the subversive influence of Lucy’s family, whose forbears were also hill preachers.

Fortune's Slave By Fidelis Morgan
eBook (ePub): $6.11
Unlikely as it may seem, the Countess finds herself with cash to spare. Unlikelier still, she decides to do the sensible thing and invest it, caught up in London society's new craze for stocks and... More > shares. Overnight, fortunes are being made, wealth amassed from nothing in a frenzy of speculation. And with these new-found riches anything can be bought: commodities, monkeys, even people. But as the Countess and Alpiew learn to their cost, investments can go down as well as up -- helped along by a little embezzlement from those bastions of respectability, bankers and brokers. 'Morgan's novels are a hoot, and packed to the hilt with parody, drama, luscious costumes and gruesome re-enactments. Morgan is adept in contrasting her characters with their surroundings and with each other. She brings dank, disease-ridden London vividly to life, with great humour. The Countess and Alpiew are comic creations of genius. Morgan's roller-coaster romp of a novel is a hard act to follow.' The Herald< Less
The Rival Queens By Fidelis Morgan
eBook (ePub): $6.11
London 1699. Countess Ashby de la Zouche and her maid, the faithful Alpiew, are dashing around, plying their trade as scandal-mongers. Happily, scandals are falling in their laps like ripe plums. But... More > scandal takes on some gravitas when the Countess and Alpiew are hired to solve the murder of a popular leading lady. Amidst an ever-changing cast of actors, hooligans, servants, noblemen, and lunatics, the identity of the murderer remains a true mystery until the end. 'A 1699 version of bawdy London is splendidly brought to life in Fidelis Morgan's The Rival Queens, the second rollicking novel to feature the wiles and conniving intrigues of Countess Ashby de la Zouche and her maidservant Alpiew... Restoration comedy and action, artifice, gunpowder and Samuel Pepys a perfect historical menu of crime and mystery, with the bonus of laughs aplenty.'  The Guardian; 'Steeped in period detail and wit, it's a mystery that is as much fun to read as it is to try to solve.' Minneapolis Star Tribune < Less
The Ambitious Stepmother By Fidelis Morgan
eBook (ePub): $6.11
The Countess Ashby de la Zouche would not be every parent's choice of chaperone for a teenagerm- in France, of all places. The second Mrs Alderman Franklyn-Green, however, will go to any lengths to... More > get rid of her unwanted stepdaughter. And the promise of 100 guineas and a sojourn in the land of gay balls is sufficient to secure the Countess's services, even if the girl is a complete shrew. Sadly, Paris is far from the den of iniquity the Countess and her maidservant Alpiew were hoping for. Worse, any hopes of enjoying fine French cuisine are dashed when a fellow guest is poisoned. "Following on from Unnatural Fire and The Rival Queens, Fidelis Morgan has another winner here." (Kirkus UK) "A third irrepressible outing for the ebullient Countess Ashby de la Zouche and her awesomely bosomed maid, Alpiew, a pair of Restoration detectives dubbed Cagney and Lacey in corsets. Fun never came so lusty." The Guardian< Less
