The Promise is a regency paranormal romance.
If you are unfamiliar with regencies, they take place between 1811 and 1820 in
. Regencies are based on humour, wit and misunderstanding. A comedy of manners at times, but they can also get very serious, and very romantic. I decided to throw a paranormal twist into my storylines. I love writing paranormal and I have decided to focus my regencies all with some kind of paranormal story to them. So far I have ghosts, visitations, and reincarnation, but I have come up with a couple of ideas just a day ago that I am really interested in possibly pursuing. I am trying to be funny and unusual, and totally unexpected with these ideas to keep them interesting and fresh. So I hope that people will like them when they get a chance to read them. England
The Promise is about reincarnation. Anthony Thornhill, heir to the Duke of Albourne, sees his childhood sweetheart, the Lady Marianne, killed before his very eyes, beneath the wheels of a
carriage. Unable to do anything to stop it all he can do is hold her while she dies in his arms. Heartbroken, he tries to lose himself in an endless string of ladies, but he still is unable to forget her. London
Bumping into the Lady Elizabeth Chatsworth, he finds her strangely familiar. But it is only later, when he spends more time with her that he starts to question who she really is. Her mannerisms, a birthmark on her neck, all tell him she must be Marianne. But surely he must be imagining it, for there is no possible way there can be any other explanation for it…or can there.
Unable to prevent his first love, the Lady Marianne, from being struck down by a carriage in a
street, Anthony Thornhill, heir to the Duke of Albourne, watches her die in his arms. London
Believing her lost to him forever, he tries to forget her through an endless line of ladies, his rakish ways leaving him empty and wanting. That is until he literally bumps into the Lady Elizabeth, his curiosity aroused. Drawn to her, because she reminds him of a loss he will never regain, he comes to realize she just may be the Lady Marianne, fulfilling a promise of a dance that never was. His only problem…she does not remember him.
Can he bring her memories forth, allowing her to see him as she did then? To know him once more and reclaim the love for him she once had? Or will she be lost to him forever?
