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

Characters in Classic Novels with Personality Disorders: Part II: Samuel Richardson’s Lovelace, Mr B and Pamela

IX: Pamela is Married 1743-4 Joseph Highmore 1692-1780 Purchased 1921 http://www.tate.org.uk/art/work/N03575

I ended my former post of lay psychologising about the high prevalence of characters who seem to have personality disorders in famous books, by mentioning Robert Lovelace, the rapist anti-hero of Clarissa.


I have written about this fellow elsewhere as a fascinating example of a character

That Scoundrel Emile Dubois (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 14, 2015 04:34AM
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 14, 2015 04:32AM
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.

Lucinda Elliot is on page 250 of 492 of Lady Adelaide: So many characters have the same name in this. The supposedly dead younger son who was thrown off a cliff ten years before was a William. I suspect he is back as a survivor from the shipwereck (he seems to have nine lives) along with another William (his son?) and meanwhile his older brother Geoffrey is dead of fever, so that the former Herbert Dane, now called Geoffrey Dane, is Lord Dane at the castle. ..
