The Master of Phoenix Hall by Edwina Marlow
I enjoyed this historical Gothic romance. It is about a young woman, Angela, who inherits a house from her aunt. The house happens to be the Dower House for Phoenix Hall, a manor home. After moving in, she discovers that there is some mystery associated with the home as well as with some highwaymen in the Cornwall area.

This seemed to me a very typical historical British Gothic romance, not superbly told, but it was well-done for me. The romance is there without being overwhelming. You might say the hero is somewhat an alpha male but I didn't care. I didn't like any of the alternatives in this one.

I'd give this one a "B+".
