Romantic Encounters: An Anthology (Book 3)
Releasing March 25th 


A Spark of Romance
by Paullett Golden

Isobel Lambeth and Alistair Trowbridge explore their romantic interests amidst the backdrop of a Gothic satire akin to Northanger Abbey

Behind every hero is a dreamer.

Isobel Lambeth lives in a world of fanciful romance where the hero wins every duel, and the maiden is never locked in the castle's tower long before the daring rescue. Dream becomes reality when a Gothic-inspired mystery involving hauntings and abductions entangles her.

Alistair is preparing to write a new chapter in his life with his ladylove. What he had not planned was his father’s perceived villainy, instigating Isobel's descent into flights of fancy--or is it madness?

Join Isobel and Alistair in this lighthearted Gothic satire as they discover the skeletons behind the locked door, turning adventure into romance.

Review Highlights

"This was dreamy and swoony! Ms. Golden sets the stage for one Gothic tale complete with dashing heroes and damsels in distress. With charming banter and family secrets you won't be able to set this aside. My reader heart is overflowing and the smile won't leave my face."

-Michelle Helen Fritz, author of Love At Last
