Perceptions Series Volumes 1 – 3
A Sense of Belonging
Wiltshire, England – Spring 1880
Second sight – a blessing or a curse?
Flora Latimer’s exceptional gift of second sight finds disapproval with her clergyman father, resulting in her taking a position as companion to an eccentric Dowager Countess of Swindon. Can Flora use her abilities to prevent the family from being embroiled in scandal and save Luke Beranger, the current earl, from ghosts that have returned to haunt him…
A Sense of Purpose
Flora’s ability to control the increasingly eccentric Dowager Countess of Swindon has swiftly made herself indispensable to the entire Beranger family. She revels in the freedom that separation from her puritanical and overbearing father affords her, allowing her natural spirituality to come to the fore.
When Miranda Defoe, a recently orphaned neighbour, returns to the district, Flora’s sixth sense compels her to protect the young woman from the Coopers, a family which has latched onto Miranda. As the relationship between Miranda and the earl’s brother Charlie progresses beyond their platonic childhood friendship, Miranda’s independence and strength of character puts her innocence at risk.
It seems that the Coopers will stop at nothing to gain control of Miranda’s fortune. Can Flora and the Berangers come to her aid before her honour is compromised and before the growing threat to her life becomes a reality…
A Sense of Misgiving
Flora’s position comes under threat once again – but this time it’s not just her father who wants her removed from Beranger Court. Influential members of the aristocracy join forces to rake up on scandals that could ruin the good name of Luke Beranger, the Earl of Swindon. They seem equally determined to take Flora down too.
Meanwhile Lady Mary, Luke’s younger sister, is being assiduously courted by fortune hunter Fergus Redfern, whose sister has an old score to settle with Luke. Can Paul Dalton, Luke’s trusted friend and right-hand man, save Mary’s reputation, and will Flora’s uncanny abilities help her to shake off the persistent shadow of her father before she finally turns twenty-one and achieves independence? Can the growing attraction between Flora and Luke ever blossom into anything more than mutual respect…
