Secret of the Sonnets

Coming January 2, 2023 from Covenant! Miranda Hatch is a scholar, and at the advanced age of twenty-six, she is undoubtedly a spinster. Her single-minded ambition leads her not to seek a husband but to find the lost manuscript of William Shakespeare. So when she discovers a connection between the Bard and the local dashing marquess, she pens a letter requesting access to papers that might secure her academic triumph.  Lord Robert Hamilton is drowning in debt and must turn things around or risk losing his ancestral home.

She feels too much and fears that she is not strong enough for the task. She is both aided and hindered by the Winter Lord; a handsome and mysterious character.
