A young widow turns to a man of otherworldly abilities to save her son in this paranormal Regency romance by the New York Times bestselling author.
In a dazzling new novel in the Wherlocke family saga, New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell creates an unforgettable story of intrigue, jeopardy, and desire. . .
Stealing a stranger's carriage is the second most reckless thing Lady Catrin Gryffin de Warrene has ever done. The first is succumbing to her powerful attraction to the carriage's owner. Catrin has heard the rumors about Sir Orion Wherlocke's family and their otherworldly gifts. He's the one person who can keep her son and his inheritance safe from her late husband's ruthless brother. But it may be too late to protect herself.
Orion is facing the worst kind of danger a man of his ilk: a woman he can't walk away from. Catrin is an intoxicating blend of innocence and sensuality, and for the first time, seduction is far more than a game. But her beauty and fortune have made her a target. And now he must risk everything he's known in pursuit of everything he's ever longed for.
Fans will enjoy the latest paranormal Regency featuring the Wherlockes and Vaughns, but it's the weakest installment in an otherwise fantastic family saga. Catryn Gryffin de Warrenne's brother-in-law, Morris, kidnaps her son, Alwyn, for his inheritance. Catryn is soon hot on their trail with the assistance of Sir Orion Wherlocke and his irrepressible son, Giles. She quickly learns to appreciate the gifts of the Wherlockes and their Vaughn cousins. As she and Orion hunt the ambitious Morris, they uncover dark secrets, including the fact that Alwyn has unexpected talents of his own. Catryn may be a widow and a mother, but she knows very little about how men and women interact. Orion has been enjoying a carefree bachelor lifestyle, but Catryn gets him wondering about the prospect of a happy married life with the right woman. The quest is long and meandering, which gives Orion and Catryn time to explore where their love will go, but meanwhile the plot gathers dust.
