Wow...This is one intense read. Sex and death and murder. Anne Stuart is known for her dark hero's, and this book is a classic example of a dark, gothic twisted romance, with a hero that is really almost an anti-hero. Excellent.
Well written but very dark in tone. If this were the first of her books I read it would have been the last. I don't personally care for such dark depressing stories. But if you like murder mysteries with your romance this will be your cup of tea.
