Publisher’s Description:

Lily Thornton waited two long years for the return of her beloved husband, the Earl of Arnsbury. But the man she married in secret has no memory of her.

After being tortured in India, Matthew Larkspur can hardly return to a normal existence. He cannot sleep at night, and he knows he is not the man Lily needs. A haunted darkness festers inside him, turning him into a beast who does not deserve the love of a beauty.

But beneath his tormented scars lies the man Lily has loved all her life. And she refuses to give up on him, especially when his wildness stirs her blood…

My Thoughts:

I liked this story even more than I did book #1, “Good Earls Don’t Lie”.

While reading this story I found myself remembering parts of Rose and Ian’s story. 

This book has more of a convoluted nature than the first one of the series.

Matthew has returned from India a different man than the one who left.

Lily loves him still but his nightmares and hallucinations may be the death of him or the ones he loves.

This story is one for the keeper shelf. I’m not certain if there will be another book in this series, but I would like to see one about James and Evangeline.

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. The intimate scenes are both sweet and combustible.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

Alexander Sinclair, the Fourth Earl of Falmouth, has a reputation for revelling in vice. But his taste for wine, women and dice is only a fraction of the dangerous truth, for the Earl is the force behind a powerful gang, smuggling contraband between France and Cornwall.  
Never afraid to get his hands dirty and with an abiding love of living recklessly, Alex leads many of these runs himself, until one fateful night when the Revenue appear. Forced to sail into a violent storm, the ship is lost and Alex is washed ashore, barely alive, close to the French port of Roscoff.  
Innocent beauty, Célestine Lavelle, has lost everything. The daughter of a noble French family forced to flee during the Revolution, she has been forced to work in the kitchens of the local whore house, where her future is shrouded in sin. Desperate and completely alone, the discovery of a half drowned English smuggler on the shore will lead her heart in directions she never dreamed of.

Determined to save his beguiling rescuer, Alex plans that her future should be full of everything that is good and honourable, but will the temptation to take her as his own be too hard to resist?

Publisher’s Description:

The truth can kill you.

Taken away as a small child, from a life where vampires, the Fae, and other mythical creatures are real and treacherous, the beautiful young witch, Jéhenne Corbeaux, is totally unprepared when she returns to rural France to live with her eccentric Grandmother.

Protected, sheltered, and lied to her whole life, Jéhenne doesn’t know who to trust. Her strange and powerful grandmother? Handsome shifter Felix, or perhaps a powerful vampire whose first instinct is to kill her?

Thrown headlong into this frightening world, she seeks to learn the truth about herself and is forced to trust her own instincts rather than take anything at face value. Along the way she uncovers secrets more shocking than anything she could ever have imagined and finds that she is by no means powerless to protect the ones she loves.

Yet despite her Gran’s dire warnings, she is inexorably drawn to the dark and terrifying figure of Corvus, an ancient vampire and Master of the vast Albinus family.

Jéhenne is about to find her answers and discover that, not only is Corvus far more dangerous than she could ever imagine, but that he holds much more than the key to her heart …
