Vivian Porter’s inquiry agency specialises in unusual problems that require discretion – and sometimes unusual talents. When her assistant is asked for help, Vivian agrees to investigate stories of ghosts and unusual occurrences at a boarding house in a rural Oxfordshire home. Cadmus Michaels, the absent-minded academic who owns the house, isn’t much bothered by the ghosts, but is not at all sure about Vivian upsetting his residents, or what she’s up to in the woods.
(Set in 1924 in Oxfordshire, and including more about the Fatae.)
Richard and Alysoun Edgarton, now Lord and Lady Edgarton after the death of his father, were an arranged marriage, and reasonably content but living very different lives. While dealing with chronic pain and fatigue, Alysoun spends most of her time at their estate with their two children, while Richard is busy establishing himself as a competent Captain in the Guard. When Alysoun is intrigued by an odd piece of stained glass in a museum exhibit, it draws them closer together, and into intrigue and the challenges of Edwardian society.
(An Edwardian-era book, set in 1906. Lord and Lady Edgarton appear in Wards of the Roses and On The Bias later in their lives together.)
Everyone thought the war would be over in a few months. Elen Morris, a nurse trained in long-term care and recovery, has been sent home from nursing at the front due to her own injuries. She has been assigned to tend to a single patient, Major Roland Gospatrick. Isolated, without much information. When they are both pressured from unexpected directions, they must work together to get Roland the care he needs, and make sure the Healing Temple remains a safe refuge.
(Set in spring 1915, in the Healing Temple in Trellech.)
