Answer Key:
If you answered mostly “A,” you are a countess, at the very least, like Thornbrook Park’s Sophia Thorne, Countess of Averford. You’re pampered, adored, generous, and expect the best of everything to come your way.
If you answered mostly “B,” you are a lady’s companion, a woman of taste and style, independent in spirit but, like Thornbrook Park’s Eve Kendal, you’ll get by with a little help from your friends.
If you answered mostly “C,” you are not afraid of hard work, prepared to make the most of any situation, and always ready to lend a hand and supply advice when asked, like Thornbrook Park’s head housemaid Lucy.

Summary:
Fans of Downton Abbey will adore this brand-new Edwardian-period romance series set at the grand estate of Thornbrook Park, seat of the Earl of Averford.

In a world poised for epic change...

Disowned for marrying beneath her, Eve Kendal has returned to England destitute after her husband's death and the mysterious disappearance of their savings. She's looking for survival, not romance. But from London to the Yorkshire countryside to the elegant estate of Thornbrook Park, Eve's path seems destined to cross that of the dashing but violent Captain Marcus Thorne.

Anything can happen...

For Marcus, a return home means facing the demons that drove him to war in the first place. As he and Eve begin a steamy affair, tensions that had been simmering just beneath the surface threaten to explode and shake the very foundations of Thornbrook Park.
