THEY EACH HAVE THEIR SECRETS…
Lucy Ashton had long ago given up her quest for true love. In the rarified society of Victorian England, Lucy plays the game – flirting, dancing and dabbling in the newly fashionable spiritualism. Even marrying when – and who – she’s supposed to. If the stuffy Duke of Sussex cannot spark the passion she craves, he can at least give her a family and a home of her own.
But when her polite marriage reveals a caring and sensual man, Lucy wonders if she can indeed have it all. But Sussex is not the man the London ton sees. And Lucy has some ghosts of her own, as well. Thus, when a blackmail scheme turns to threats of danger, the newfound peace of their marriage is ruined. Passion has a price, Lucy learns. And not all ghosts stay buried.

In this sensual and intriguing but somewhat perplexing sequel to June 2011's Victorian Seduction & Scandal, Featherstone tells the story of Lucy, the first heroine's cousin. Fed up with her staid and lonely life and overwhelmed by her planned marriage to Adrian, the reserved duke of Sussex, Lucy begins dabbling in the occult and learns of the secretive Brethren Guardians. She also pines over the loss of her first lover, Thomas, despite increasing evidence that he's still alive and involved in nefarious activities. Adrian's life is likewise shrouded in secrecy, and he resolves to mask his true passionate self. When Lucy and Adrian are alone, however, she is shocked by their simmering chemistry. Lucy's initial aversion to the supremely likable Adrian and the haziness surrounding the Brethren's tasks detract from an otherwise engaging and steamy yarn.
