About That Scoundrel Emile Dubois
Can Sophie de Courcy’s maid’s ridiculous tarot predictions be coming true?
Agnes foresees a villainous admirer from abroad for each of them, and a battle with dark forces.
It’s true that Sophie dreams of adventure and romance. Still, living as a dowager’s companion in an isolated mansion in North Wales, she doesn’t expect any, let alone this sort of thing.
But now, Sophie’s long term hero – the incorrigible rogue French émigré Émile Dubois, has come on a visit with his strutting confidential servant.
Surely, there can’t be any truth in the stories that Émile and the London highwayman Monsieur Gilles are the same person, and his servant his companion in crime?
Why does Émile insist that he met Sophie in Revolutionary Paris – where she has never been – and why is he so angry with her for denying it?
Meanwhile, their sinister neighbours, the long-toothed Kenrick and his siren like wife, are up on a visit from Town themselves. Kenrick is full of wild talk about the legends of Romania, and of travel through time.
Émile laughs at him. Yet, can he resist Mistress Kenrick’s voluptuous charms?
Can Sophie prevent them all from being drawn into a Kenrick’s dark experiments?
