The National Trust – which protects special properties in England, Wales and Northern Ireland – and Mills & Boon have teamed up to publish a series of romance novels set in NT properties.
The Guardian has a great article about the partnership, including references to some real-life trysts that caused scandals.
My favorite quote is from John Stachiewicz, publisher at the National Trust: “Our visitors love a good story about the romance of the houses and the history of the families [and] these houses have seen a lot of action.”
I bet they have. I’ve toured several of them, and, while I didn’t get lucky, I can totally understand how they’d help create special memories for the people who lived in them.
