This is an enigmatic romance book that keeps you in suspense throughout its pages. The mystery is as enjoying to follow as the blossoming attraction between the two main characters. And there are many tantalizing peeks into the world of the supernatural. In all, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Picked this book up as a "quick romance break"...whoa was I surprised! This is a great mystery...has everything you could want...castles, mummies, museums, a man who wears a mask and a "you won't believe it ending".

I ordered this book based on the reviews of other members. I was a little disappointed when I realized the book was a Harlequin, but I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. It was a great story, with enough twists to keep me saying, "just one more chapter." I love the Beauty and the Beast theme.

Eh. Kind of boring and not memorable. There was too much text about the sort of mystery being solved and not enough about developing the characters or the love story.

The love scenes were not very titillating or sexy.

Probably won't be ready any others from this author.

I am a big fan of Beauty and The Beast type story lines but this whole book seemed forced to me. Interesting characters but didnt really seem to move well.
