They each have their secrets. But what they share is Passion
Lucy Ashton had long ago given up her quest for true love. In the rarified society of Victorian England, Lucy plays the game--flirting, dancing and dabbling in the newly fashionable spiritualism. Even marrying when--and who--she's supposed to. If the stuffy Duke of Sussex cannot spark the passion she craves, he can at least give her a family, a home of her own,and a place to belong. But when her polite marriage reveals a caring and sensual man, Lucy begins to wonder if she can indeed have it all.
But Lord Sussex is not the man the London ton has come to admire. And Lucy has some ghosts of her own, as well. Thus, when a blackmail scheme turns to threats of danger, the newfound peace of the Sussex marriage is cast upon the rocks. Passion has a price, Lucy learns. And not all ghosts stay buried.
(Terra's Review) This is one of those stories that will make you froth at the mouth like a rabid dog. It's action packed, luscious, deliciously intimate and just such a wondrous shivering treat that you won't be able to set it down for the life of you. This is the second book of the series and in my very high opinion it is a must have series. OMG!!!
Lucy Ashton is in love with a dead man. She witnessed the fire but can't bring her mind to the finality and reality of the fact that the man she loved was consumed in this horrendous accident. She is in love with the man who was a killer amongst other things. A man that no decent lady of the ton should ever be involved with. But will the man she loves stay dead? Do ghosts exist and can she face a reality that this man is not whom he says he is even with faced with undeniable truths?
Lord Sussex is tall and handsome but to the woman he loves he is anything but. He is a man of perfection, rigid and passionless and doesn't have a romantic bone in his body if what is whispering on the wind of the waggling tongues of the ton can make one believe. Ah and this irks him like nothing else he's ever heard. Will it irk him enough to show his true colors to the woman he loves or will he continue with the mask of what the ton believes.
This is a high action story and is second book of the series. Charlotte Featherstone is a wonderfully fantastic storyteller that will make you swoon with delight and moon for more. I really am at a loss as to what to say because this book and series soooooooooo speaks for itself from page one to the last word.
I feel this is a story that has a bit of Indiana Jones pumped up with electric sexuality that you can't help but feel the sparks of eroticism with mere little words. I think the word Delicious is just too mild for this sparkling treat.
