Betrayed by those she trusted, penniless and alone, Darcie Finch is forced to accept a position that no one else dares, as assistant to dangerously attractive Dr. Damien Cole. Ignoring the whispered warnings and rumours that he's a man to fear, she takes her position at his eerie estate, where she quickly discovers that nothing is at it seems, least of all her handsome and brooding employer. As Darcie struggles with her fierce attraction to Damien, she must also deal with the blood, the disappearances ... and the murders.
With her options dwindling and time running out, Darcie must rely on her instincts as she confronts the man she falling in love with. Is he an innocent and misunderstood man ... or a remorseless killer who prowls the East End streets?

"...a gripping gothic that combines the tension of the Jack the Ripper stories with the dark aura of Jekyll and Hyde and the chill of a classic horror film. There's icy fear and smoldering passion, twists and turns and red herrings thrown in here and there to keep you up all night."--RT BookReviews
I wasn’t sure if about this book and I’d never read anything by this author but I had an offer to get it for free so I figured I’d try it. I really liked it. Trying to figure out who was responsible for the murder was interesting. And the interaction between Darcie and Damien was good. I’ll be looking to read others by this author.
Perfect Gothic Read!
This story held me captive until the very end. Highly recommend.
NAIL BITER!!! I couldn’t put this book down. It just really appealed to me. Loved it. The mystery surrounding Damien kept me intrigued. I also liked Darcy’s and Abigail’s characters. This story definitely surprised me.
