The Shadow Earl

by Stella Riley

At the end of his Grand Tour, somewhere between Athens and Constantinople, Christian Selwyn, the young Earl of Hazelmere, vanished - seemingly without a trace.

Time passes.  In London, his uncle and cousin move into his home … while his unofficial fiancée, Sophia, is left desolate and in limbo.  Finally, his friends – loyal and close as brothers – set out to search in person.

Christian’s startling re-appearance at a grand ball takes society by storm and fuels endless speculation. Where has he been during these three missing years? What happened to him?

And more importantly, how did it happen?

Only one thing is clear.  The earl who left England five years ago, has returned a changed man.  A man with secrets.



"It’s such a well written & intriguing mystery / love story with lots of heart & insight into the after effects of the results of captivity.
This one is a gem."
~ Katie McLean

"This book is chock full of historical details, as well as a fascinating, fast moving story. As usual with a Stella Riley tale, the characters are well drawn and the settings beautifully—if sometimes painfully—described."
~ Julie's Bookshelf
