Once a year, an ancient secret walks the corridors of Greyson Hall, a place shrouded in mystery and whispered legend.

When Devon Clayton inherited the stately mansion in England’s wild north from his uncle, he never imagined what secrets lurked within its walls, hidden for centuries. When his friends and brothers join him for the holiday, the British Agents and their families discover that their most unusual case will bring new meaning to Christmas spirit.

They must now unravel a century-old mystery if they are to break the curse and save a love that transcends time.

A long novella set in Northumberland in December 1782 and 1892.


Also available in the British Agent Novels series:

Alaina Claiborne
Blackwood Crossing
Clayton's Honor

Note: The British Agent series books are written to be read as stand-alone novels. However, they each have cross-over characters, meaning characters from each book will appear in the others. The only reading order is chronological, but each title can still be read as stand-alone.

~ Readers’ Favorite 

A duke, an earl, and a mere mister, each willing to sacrifice the dream of a family to serve their king and country. The three men had become allies by necessity, friends through trust, and brothers of the heart through loyalty and devotion. Of course, not one of them had anticipated meeting the brave and remarkable women whose love promised a life apart from cold beds, scar-ridden bodies, and more secrets than any one person should have to keep.

Love, unwavering and eternal, was the legacy they could now pass onto their sons and daughters. Devon planned to revive the talk of little ones with Anne at the first opportunity. For now, he continued down the landing to the east wing, where his younger brothers, Derek and Zachary, occupied rooms when they were in residence. They still served as trusted agents to the crown and rarely spent more than a week a month at Greyson Hall.

Devon stopped at the first bedroom, the original nursery, and opened the door. The draft Anne mentioned coursed over his face and bare hands before he even entered. “Of course, there’s a draft without heat.” He found the vent, knelt, and held a hand over it. The servants kept the coal furnace fueled most of the day, and though not an ideal system, it warmed the impressive house to a reasonable degree of comfort. Natural convection was indeed pushing some of the heat into the room.

He stood and examined each window. Each one was secure, and the cold glass panes did not explain the draft still flowing around him. Devon examined the padded bench at a corner dressing table, determined it would hold his weight, and moved it next to the wardrobe. He reached a hand along the edges of the ceiling, to no avail.

“You must find country life far more tedious than I do if you’ve resorted to dusting corners for cobwebs. It has only been three months since your retirement.”

Without looking at his friend, Devon stepped off the stool and asked Charles, “Do you feel a draft?”

“All these country houses have drafts. It’s a requirement. The attics at Blackwood Crossing have several, and no matter who looks at it or how often we have crevices filled or the roof repaired, the drafts remain.”

“You don’t feel it?”
