‘With history this colourful and a mystery this baffling, the result is delicious’ -Good Book Guide
Lady Arabella Wynter is delighted to be in Bath, in her father, Lord Midhurst’s, fine new house, with all the parties and balls to look forward to. Not even her brother Julian’s idea that the place might be haunted can dampen her spirits. But one night Arabella wakes suddenly to find a strange man standing by her bed. She runs to fetch help, but by the time Julian arrives, the man had disappeared. Can it be that Arabella has seen a ghost?Something strange is in the air – and surely the echoing laughter in the house isn’t just her imagination?
Originally published as a three-part romantic serial written specially for Woman’s Realm, The Moonlit Baths is the first time the story has been gathered together in one place, representing the mistress of time-travel romance at her best.
About the author…

Lampitt, has two grown-up children, four beautiful and talented grandchildren, and one rather large cat. Deryn has lived near the famous battlefield of 1066 for the past 16 years where she enjoys her life as a woman about town.
