When Lady Grace Grayson accepts an invitation to a house party at Rocksavage Manor, she expects a few weeks of painting and serenity in the English countryside. She doesn’t expect to become the target of a murderer. When Kyle Calshot, accepts a position with Theodore Price, the owner of Rocksavage Manor, he expects to learn all he can about British Politics in Victorian England. He doesn’t expect to be asked to betray a friend or become the bodyguard to a beautiful red haired widow. As Grace and Kyle struggle against a newfound passion for one another, they must discover the motives of a killer. And when old secrets are revealed can their new love survive?
When the sound of the shot came, disrupting the sunny pond and meadow with a sharp crack, Kyle leapt to his feet in a single fluid motion knowing immediately what the sound was, and ran the short distance from the far side of the pond to Lady Grace in one breathless moment. He looked into the distant woods behind, the only direction from which the shot could have originated. No movement, just a shine near the floor of the woods which could only be explained by the presence of a person. A gleam of metal meant a gun, likely a rifle at this distance. Someone was watching and targeting her.
“Get down!” he yelled, and just as another shot was fired, Kyle leapt towards Lady Grace and knocked her down, rolling as they fell to take the weight of the fall on his right shoulder. He didn’t give her time to react, covering most of her body as he continued to roll them over and over. He brought them to a rest under a stand of willows near the edge of the pond. The draping branches of the willow gave them some cover, but Kyle knew that if the gunman was determined, and a good shot, they would still be in danger.
