Castonbury Park starts today with the Wicked Lord Montague!

At last, the latest historical continuity kicks off today with Carole Mortimer's "The Wicked Lord Montague." This story features the second son, Lord Giles Montague who had imagined a life spent in the military but now finds himself at the head of his flagging family after his brother, the heir, is lost in the wars. Giles most reluctantly returns home to face his tattered family, the mounting debt, and a father who has retreated from the world. Giles is all that now stands between his family and disaster but perhaps he might find support and relief from his burdens in the arms of Lily, the vicar's daughter.

Survival of the fittest is fine, as long as you're the one on top...

Derbyshire, England, 1816
The Montagues, heirs to the Rothermere dukedom have always believed in survival of the fittest, but now the family that had everything is about to lose it all. Their way of life is threatened from forces both inside and outside the family. The Napoleonic Wars have ended, claiming the life of not one but two  sons, the heir Jamie, and young Edward, as well as the economic life-blood of the dukedom; the war-time profits that once significantly padded the family's coffers. Both losses will change the family circumstances, perhaps not for the better. Rumor has it the grand family isn't what it used to be.  It is up to each Montague to decide for themselves the shape of their destiniy in this brave new world where pride and power war for the greatest prize of all----love.
