I liked this book. Although it did not take me in the way Ms. Gaffney's Wyckerley series did, it was an enjoyable read.
The hero was a bit of a cad, but redeemed himself in the end with a nice grovel. That said, some of the things he did to the heroine may make some readers uncomfortable. I don't believe I could have forgiven him. But in romantic fiction, we do like to have our Happy Ending, therefore it was a satisfying read.

The heroine undergoes more than her share of hardship throughout this bk. The hero treats her like dirt more than once, too, but I still love the story. Full of intense emotion and sensuality.

I loved this book, although I have to admit it is not for everyone - it is not always an easy book to read. There are some beautiful scenes in it, parts I had to re-read. I would recommend - it is not light reading, but very worth it if you enjoy that genre in romance.

When Lily Trehearne--a beautiful woman who was once wealthy but is now destitute--arrives at Darkstone, she finds herself attracted to dangerous and cold Devon Darkwell--the lord of the manor, and as they surrender to desire, dark secrets from his past threaten to tear them apart.
