Blurb: Iain Sinclair, Marquis of Alynwick, is certain there is a special hell for him. An unrepentant rake, he holds nothing sacred – except for beautiful Elizabeth York. For years, Alynwick has tried to forget the woman he loved so well, and treated so badly. A woman who could hold nothing in her heart for him except hatred.

All of society believes Elizabeth, blind daughter of a duke, to be a proper young lady. But no one knows of her wanton affair with Alynwick. When Lizzy learns of her ancestor’s ancient diary – filled with exotic tales – she longs to uncover the identity of the unnamed lover within and hesitantly allows Alynwick, who claims to have knowledge of the “veiled lady,” to help her solve the mystery.

Eager to be Lizzy’s eyes, Alynwick brings the seductive text to life, and each night it takes greater effort for her to forget his betrayal. With each whispered word, her resolve gives way, without her knowing that a centuries-old secret will lead them to a present-day danger.
  This book was really hard for me to review. I really enjoyed the book about half of the time and the other half I just wasn't feeling it. There were some really good parts to it and if you're reading the series, you will want to read this one too.
   Elizabeth's character was one that I really liked. She was probably my favorite part of the book. She is blind but tries to be as independent as possible. She was intelligent, kind, and very likable.
   While I love a good bad-boy in a romance novel, Iain left me feeling a little disgusted. I really didn't like his character most of the time. He is constantly after Lizzy, but I didn't feel like he really deserved her.
   Definitely, hard to rate because it was well written, and I loved Charlotte Featherstone's writing style, but I just wasn't rooting for the so-called hero of the story.
