Another terrific book from Liz Carlyle who is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.

In Beauty Like the Night, we are introduced to Camden Rutledge, a widowed Earl recently come to title with a little girl who is either unable or unwilling to speak. Enter Helene de Severs, a governess also trained in the treatment of mental disorders. She's also Cam's first love who left the area and broke Cam's heart when they were teens.

The two have combustible chemistry and seesaw back and forth with each other through most of the book. A bit of a mystery regarding the child's inability to speak ties the story together.

There's sensuality interspersed throughout and Carlyle draws Bently, Cam's younger brother, as an equally interesting character who will eventually have his own book.

Sexy and interesting.

Cam and Helene come together again after years of separation in order to help his daughter regain her speech. There is the mystery of his first wife's death and the attraction between them which keeps the story moving along. It is a little too long, but reads well and has a satisfying ending.

Really good story, didn't want to put it down. Tormented brothers and young woman misunderstood. The miscommunication and all the emotional baggage that creates the angst to keep reading so they get on with falling in love. Good read.
