Title: THE GLASS BUTTERFLY (Haunted
Hearts Legacy #3)
Date: August 15, 2018
available on the official launch date: August 15, 2018
Felicity Lonsdale has masqueraded as a dowager almost twice her age—selling
caterpillars to butterfly consortiums—enabling her to hide an ill-fated past
while raising her late brother’s daughters. Together, the three live on an
isolated Irish estate bequeathed by a dying earl. When the earl’s estranged son
arrives to claim his inheritance by threatening to expose Felicity’s true
identity, she longs to pack up her nieces and run. But a ghostly secret within
the castle’s turret holds her captive.
Nick Thornton—a Roma viscount’s heir—is also captive. After a tryst with an
investor’s wife nearly destroyed his family’s holiday resort, Nick forsook
everything to elope with her. However, a tragic mistake at his hand led to her
and his baby’s deaths. Refusing to turn to the family he shamed, Nick travels
to seek the countess who once co-wrote a romance with his sister. There’s rumor
of a special butterfly in her keep—a transparent-winged species with ties to
the afterlife. Nick hopes to contact his dead wife and child, for only their
forgiveness can free him.
Upon his arrival to Felicity’s estate, Nick offers to help her defeat the
earl’s son, on the condition she allow Nick to investigate her glass
butterflies. Felicity agrees, though fears the closer he gets to the ghosts of
his past, the closer he’ll come to uncovering her own. As Nick spends time with
Felicity and her nieces, he realizes the mystery enshrouding this fragile
countess and her castle is more intriguing than the ghosts he originally came
to find. And perhaps putting his dead to rest and helping her do the same will
be his true path to redemption.

Title: THE ARCHITECT OF SONG
Date: August 15, 2016
imprisoned by his past, and a ghost imprisoned within the petals of a flower –
intertwine in this love story that transcends life and death.
For most of her life, nineteen-year-old Juliet Emerline has
subsisted – isolated by deafness – making hats in the
solitude of her home. Now, she’s at risk to lose her sanctuary to Lord Nicolas
Thornton, a twenty-seven-year-old mysterious and eccentric architect with
designs on her humble estate. When she secretly witnesses him raging beside a
grave, Juliet investigates, finding the name “Hawk” on the headstone and an
unusual flower at the base. The moment Juliet touches the petals, a young
English nobleman appears in ghostly form, singing a song only her deaf ears can
hear. The ghost remembers nothing of his identity or death, other than the one
name that haunts his afterlife: Thornton.
To avenge her ghostly companion and save her estate, Juliet pushes aside her
fear of society and travels to Lord Thornton’s secluded holiday resort, posing
as a hat maker in one of his boutiques. There, she finds herself questioning
who to trust: the architect of flesh and bones who can relate to her through
romantic gestures, heartfelt notes, and sensual touches … or the
specter who serenades her with beautiful songs and ardent words, touching her
mind and soul like no other man ever can. As sinister truths behind Lord
Thornton’s interest in her estate and his tie to Hawk come to light, Juliet is
lured into a web of secrets. But it’s too late for escape, and the tragic love
taking seed in her heart will alter her silent world forever.
International and NYT bestselling author, A.G. Howard, brings her darkly
magical and visual/visceral storytelling to Victorian England. The Architect of
Song is the first installment in her lush and romantic Haunted Hearts Legacy
series, a four book gothic saga following the generations of one family as –
haunted by both literal and figurative ghosts – they search for
self-acceptance, love, and happiness.
