Blurb: Once the seeds of desire are sown . . .
Finally free of her suffocating marriage, widow Daisy Ellis Craigmore is ready to embrace the pleasures of life that have long been denied her. Yet her new-found freedom is short lived. A string of unexplained murders has brought danger to Daisy's door, forcing her to turn to the most unlikely of saviors . . .

Their growing passion knows no bounds . . .
Ian Ranulf, the Marquis of Northrup, has spent lifetimes hiding his primal nature from London society. But now a vicious killer threatens to expose his secrets. Ian must step out of the shadows and protect the beautiful, fearless Daisy, who awakens in him desires he thought long dead. As their quest to unmask the villain draws them closer together, Daisy has no choice but to reveal her own startling secret, and Ian must face the undeniable truth: Losing his heart to Daisy may be the only way to save his soul.

   This book got just about everything right! The whole story was woven wonderfully into a sizzling hot romance and a great read. Part paranormal romance, part historical and lots of action, mystery, and suspense! To top it all of it even has a stunning cover! What didn't this book have? How about not a dull moment.
   Daisy is a great character, bold in a time when women were supposed to be timid. She says what is on her mind and I liked that about her. She is just coming out of mourning for her husband, who really mistreated and abused her (and left her penniless), and wants to start living her life on her own terms.
   When Daisy is attacked, Ian Ranulf rescues her and takes it upon himself to keep her safe. Ian has spent the last few decades running from his past and denying who and what he is. Both characters seemed so lonely in their own ways, that I really wanted everything to work out for them, and the attraction between them is apparent from the very beginning. I loved reading through and watching the sparks fly!
  The story was fast paced, and kept me wondering what was going to happen next, with just the right amount of mystery & suspense. There were a couple of times in the book where something would happen that I just didn't see coming at all, and I always love it when a book can surprise me!
   I didn't read the first book in this series before starting this one, and I didn't have any trouble keeping up. I always recommend reading books in order, but this one does well as a stand-alone. I enjoyed this books so much, I didn't want to put it down, and don't be surprised if you see a review up soon of book #1, Firelight. Anyways, I loved it and can't wait to read more from this author!

  1. Great review! Thanks for sharing it! I'll TBR this one! :D

  2. Liesel, it was really good :) I grew up reading Historical Romance and only in the last few years started reading PNR. I loved that she mixed the two and it was a really great read, very well done. Thanks for stopping by!

    Dawn I followed you back, thanks for stopping by as well :)
