Rainbow A Dead Man's Debt by Grace Elliot - 'historical romance at its best' - TRR

Let me introduce my debut novel, A Dead Man's Debt - described by The Romance Reviews as "historical romance at its best".

A Dead Man's Debt - a story of blackmail, duty and an unexpected love. 

After publically humiliating a suitor, Miss Celeste Armitage is sent from the Ton in disgrace and resolves never to marry. But when she finds a sketch book of nude studies and discovers the artist is her hostess's eldest son, Lord Ranulf Charing, she finds herself dangerously attracted to exactly the sort of rogue she is sworn to avoid. 
Nothing is as it seems. Lord Ranulf's life is a facade and he is being blackmailed over his late brother's debts. But just as the darkly restless Ranulf unexpectedly learns to love, the vengeful fury of his nemesis unleashed. In order to protect Celeste, Lord Ranulf faces a stark choice between duty and true love...
However Ranulf has underestimated Miss Armitage's stubborn resolve to clear his name, and in so doing places the woman he loves in mortal danger....

Reviews:
'This story has it all - love, betrayal, blackmail, illicit love, scandal, secrets, danger, and savagery. And the list continues. Couple all this with the author's artful writing, and you have a novel that is sure to delight. I'm not surprised it is getting raving reviews already. The characters are so real, so believable, I'm still thinking of them hours after the story ended.' [Great Historicals]

' A Dead Man's Debt is historical romance at its best. With this novel, you will find a poignant story about an untrusting woman, a notorious rake and the love that brings them both to their knees. This is a novel that should not be missed!'

'This book was a joy to read, great lead characters and interesting drama.'

Photo RE: A Dead Man's Debt by Grace Elliot - 'historical romance at its best' - TRR

Just to let you know that 'A Dead Man's Debt' has been re-edited, re-formatted and re-published with a lovely new cover! (In my signature line) 
Originally published by Solstice, the contract expired and I decided to take control and take the book forward as an Indie. 
It has some lovely reviews - 7 x 5* reviews (out of 8) on Amazon UK
'The fascinating use of period detail means the book stands out within its genre'
'The descriptive style effortlessly captures the essence of each and every character' 
'The characters immediately drew me into the story, feeling every emotion, every high and every low within this compelling roller-coaster of a novel.'
'This book threw out pretty much all of my preconceptions about historical romantic fiction. The plot, whilst predictable in it's final outcome, had substance and depth to it.'
