Bonus Short Story
Book 1 in The Moonstone Series
For Sir James Mitchell, Lord of Penventen, it’s a toss of a coin between which is more dangerous – being a spy or being considered husband material by the Ladies of the Ton.
With high stakes political machinations threatening to draw England into the violent wake of the French Revolution, the last thing James expects is to fall in love with Selina Rosewall, daughter of an untitled seafaring family.
From the privileged world of London society and the wild, dangerous beauty of the Cornish coast to the seething heart of revolutionary Paris, James reluctantly draws Selina deeper in a world of secrets, lies and scandals that threaten England itself.
Moonstone Obsession was Elizabeth Ellen Carter’s first novel and was shortlisted in the 2013 Romance Writers Of Australia’s Emerald Awards (single title) for unpublished manuscripts. Before the awards were announced, however, Obsession was accepted for publication in the US.
Book 2 in The Moonstone Series. The sequel to Moonstone Obsession weaves a story of rejection, romance and redemption where the stakes are life itself.
Revolution in France, rebels in England, and one woman caught in the crossfire…
For her unwitting participation in a plot to embezzle the Exchequer, Lady Abigail Houghall has spent the last two years exiled to the city of Bath.
A card sharp, sometime mistress, and target of scandalous gossip by the London Beau Monde, Lady Abigail plots to escape her gilded cage as well as the prudish society that condemns her. But the times are not easy.
France is in chaos, the king has been executed. And now whispers of a similar revolution are stirring in England.
And because of her participation in the robbery plot, the Spymaster of England is blackmailing her into passing him information about the members of London’s upper crust.
When one of his agents, the dashing English spy Daniel Ridgeway, takes a seat at her card table, she has no choice but to do as he demands: seduce the leader of the revolutionaries and learn what she can about their plot.
As she’s drawn deeper into Daniel’s dangerous world, from the seedy backstreets of London to the claustrophobic catacombs of a war-torn Paris, she realizes an even more dangerous fact.
She’s falling in love with her seductive partner. And the stakes of this game might just be too high, even for her.

A Note from the Author
There are times when you fall in love with a secondary character and such was the case with Toby Jackson, the loyal and sharp-witted friend and confidante of Moonstone Obsession’s hero, Sir James Mitchell. The woman he falls in love with is also very special – the independent and delightful young widow, Ann Sellars.
