From Hate to Love

Horribly wounded after robbers murdered her dear father and left her for dead, the lovely young Atayla is alone and destitute in Morocco at the Tangiers Mission.
So when her only friend, Father Ignatius, tells her of a French lady, the Comtesse de Soisson, who wishes to pay someone to escort her young daughter home to her estranged father, the Earl of Rothwell, she jumps at the opportunity.
After a long and tiring journey, she arrives unannounced at Roth Castle with young Felicity and Atayla is dismayed by the violent unwelcoming reception she receives from the dashing but disdainful Earl, who assumes that she has some shady ulterior motive in coming to The Castle.
Atayla is at the mercy of a man who hates her and soon it seems she is to be banished from The Castle and from the young girl she has come to care for.
But then the Earl's passions are inflamed in a terrible misunderstanding and his hate is suddenly transformed to an all-consuming love.

    “He is dead?”

    “He was murdered by robbers,” Atayla replied. “We were on our way home to Tangiers, a very small caravan with just a few servants. The robbers swooped down from the hills and everybody was – killed except me.”

    “How did you survive?”

    “They left me for dead, but I was carried by some kind people to Tangiers and nursed in the Mission.”

    “It is the most fascinating story I have ever heard!” Sir Christopher said.

    Atayla looked towards the top of the table to where the Earl sat looking, she thought, almost as if he himself was Royal.

    Without asking herself why, she said to Sir Christopher,
