The Earl Returns (Lords of Sussex Book 1) by Lillian Marek
The Earl of Merton is back. Can he stay alive?
After three years as an involuntary seaman in the Royal Navy, the Earl of Merton returns to an England roiled by unrest. The end of the war has brought economic hardship and unemployment. Merton starts a shipyard, bringing employment to his neighbors but embarrassment to his family. They want him to marry suitably and settle down to a normal aristocratic life. He is not interested…until he meets Miranda Rokeby.
Miranda is the daughter of a Boston shipowner visiting her English relatives. She has an American disdain for useless aristocrats…until she meets Merton.
Together they may be able to overcome the opposition of their families, but they have another problem.
Someone is trying to kill the Earl of Merton.

About the Author
When she retired after too many years in journalism, Lillian Marek felt a longing for happy endings and stories where the good guys win and the bad guys get their just deserts. Having exhausted her library’s supply of non-gory mystery stories, she started reading romance novels, especially historical romance. This was so much fun that she thought she’d like to try her hand at writing one. So she took her computer keyboard in hand, slipped back into the 19th century, and began.
She was not mistaken—writing romance novels is as much fun as reading them.
Her list of story ideas now numbers more than 80. She may be spinning tales for quite a while.
