Lucinda Elliot is a five times winner of the B.R.A.G medallion for outstanding fiction, for 'That Scoundrel Emile Dubois' 'Ravensdale, 'their sequel 'Where Worlds Meet' , another historical gothic spoof called, 'The Villainous Viscount Or the Curse of the Venns' and for her historical novel about the Peterloo Massare, 'The Peterloo Affair'.
She loves writing Gothic style stories, which isn't surprising because she was brought up in a series of great old isolated houses about England and Wales which her parents were refurbishing (it wasn't so fashionable back then). After that, she lived, studied and worked in London for many years and now lives in Mid Wales with her family.
She loves writing about strong women to complement gung ho males. Sh

Before that, I was working on a story about a Samuel Richardson's Lovelace type villain, but I got such terrible W*****'s B**** over that, I put it in the infamous drawer to return to later.

A Spoof Gothic Historical Romance Episode

[image error]


Now for some comic relief. Who’s for a Gothic historical romance, full of anachronisms (which the re-cycled characters know too well).


Scene: A castle in the wilds of Yorkshire, UK, on the moors.  Date – Regency


[ A darkly handsome and brooding man appears  at the bolt studded door holding a modern electric torch. Although it is October and there is a force eight gale blowing, he we

That Scoundrel Emile Dubois (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: When young Sophie de Courcy, bored but patient companion to the Countess of Ruthin, agrees to marry her long-time hero, dashing French rogue Émile Dubois, she is catapulted into a dangerous world of Man Vampires and Time Warps. With the help of Agnes, her no nonsense, tarot-reading Welsh maid, she must come to terms with her new husband’s scandalous past, help him defeat the evil Vampire neighbours and to escape from the machinations of time which threaten to destroy their new found love. All this in just one book! Scoundrel is an entertaining, over-the-top Gothic adventure, alive with colourful character comedy as it flits between Revolutionary France and misty Wales.
That Scoundrel Emile Dubois (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: Sophie de Courcy is happy to marry the dashing French emigre Emile Dubois, despite the fact that due to the machinations of her neighbours, the sinister Kenricks, he is in danger of turning into a man vampire and is surrounded by a time warp. There is also the slight matter of the criminal past he shared with his valet Georges. Though Sophie soon finds herself a virtual prisoner in their new home with Emile and Georges predatory Man Vampires, Sophie and her redoubtable maid Agnes are determined to defeat the Kenricks and bring Emile and Georges back to humanity. The incongruous combination of earthy eighteenth century rogues and over-the-top Gothic adventure makes for many absurdities as Agnes and Sophie take on the forces of evil with the aid of Agnes' Tarot set and a lot of herbal remedies.
