A Maid with a Secret
A Lord with a Past
A Love for All Time  

A Maid with a Secret
Beneath her shy, bookish exterior, Abigail Jones hides a terrible affliction: shocking and licentious visions possess her, threatening her very sanity. When she is suddenly left alone in the world, Abby must seek a position at Hope End, a gothic English estate. She hopes to find refuge there, but instead she discovers pieces of a mystery: a portrait of a haunting beauty, a housekeeper who knows too much, and a powerful lord torn between revenge and seduction …

A Lord with a Past
Enigmatic and handsome as sin, Earl Huxton is surrounded by rumors about the unexplained death of his first wife and his boldly rakish behavior. Beneath Hux’s debonair façade, however, lies hidden torment—and a secret burning quest for vengeance. Nothing compromises his pursuit of justice until he meets Abby, a maid who seems to see into the dark corners of his soul and whose touch entices him to relinquish the past for an infinitely sweeter obsession …

A Love for All Time
Hux and Abby’s adventures take them from the gothic countryside to the erotic underworld of Victorian London. As passion flares between them, dangerous secrets begin to unravel. With the final battle against evil looming, a startling connection between his past and her secret comes to light. Will the demons of the past destroy their future … or will their love vanquish the darkness?

I absolutely LOVED Abigail Jones! It is a fantastic novel that delivered all of the excitement of a great paranormal suspense along with a passionate romance that left me wanting more.  
I adored the main characters. Both Hux and Abby were very complex.. Their struggles to over-come their unwanted destinies and traumatizing pasts was a joy to read.
Reminiscent of one my favorites, Jane Eyre, Abigail Jones held just enough mystery and heat to keep me reading well into the night.
If you're a fan of paranormal historical romances (why aren't there more of these?!) I highly suggest picking up Abigail Jones.  I assure you, you will not be disappointed!
