Ein eigenes Café - das war schon immer Brionys Traum. Mit Anfang dreißig hat sie sich diesen in einem südenglischen Dorf erfüllt. Besonders beliebt ist ihre saftige Schokoladentorte, deren handgeschriebenes Rezept sie kürzlich in einem alten Buch gefunden hat. Die Geschäfte laufen hervorragend, bis ein zweites Café im Dorf eröffnet und Leckereien zu Dumpingpreisen anbietet. Briony gerät in einen argen Konkurrenzkampf. Eines Morgens stolpert sie über einen bunt gescheckten Kater, der sie zu einer verletzten Katze führt. Die tierischen Gefährten ziehen bei Briony ein und schon bald hat sie die beiden ins Herz geschlossen. Die schoko-braune Katze und Darcy lenken sie von ihren Zukunftssorgen ab.

Doch glücklicherweise ist Kater Darcy nicht weit ... eBooks von beHEARTBEAT - Herzklopfen garantiert.

Excerpt from Morocco That Was My first introduction to the Moorish Court was in 1887, only a very few months after my arrival in Morocco, when I was invited by the British Minister, the late Sir William Kirby-Green, to accompany his special Mission to the Sultan. Mulai Hassen was then at the zenith of his power. He was a "strong" Sultan, probably cruel, and certainly capable. His energy was never-failing, and he maintained order amongst his lawless tribes and stamped out the constantly occurring revolts by an almost unceasing "progress" through the country, accompanied by his rabble of an army. He seldom spent six months together in any of his several capitals, and the Moors had a saying, "The Imperial tents are never stored."

Enjoy one of only two Heyer Gothic Regency romances. "Miss Heyer serves up a very different sort of tale in the same period setting, nothing less than a full-fledged Gothic. And a very expert job she does of it, too, complete with a remote and forbidding country house, screams in the night, dark hints of something best left unmentioned? nicely leavened with wit, romance, and wonderful period slang."-Publishers Weekly A surprising invitation Kate Malvern is rescued from penury by her aunt Minerva, who brings her to stay at Staplewood. But the household is strange and strained?Kate's uncle lives in his own private wing, and her handsome, moody cousin Torquil lives in another. A dark family secret As bizarre events unfold and Kate begins to question the reasons for her aunt's unexpected generosity, she has no one to confide in but her cousin Philip. Sympathetic though he may appear, will he tell her what she most needs to know... before it's too late? What readers say: "Flawless gothic romance." "A dark and different Regency romance." "Cousin Kate remains a classic Heyer study of character and Regency attitudes, and boasts a wonderfully warm and generous heroine who it is impossible to dislike and one of Heyer's most pleasant and agreeable heroes." "A superior Georgette Heyer work; a bit darker and more serious than most of her other books, but as always there is the fast wit and a happy ending."
