HIS DARK KISS
HIS WICKED SINS
SEDUCED BY A STRANGER
**re-release: originally released in 2006**
Well written. Kept my interest to the very end. Mystery, romance, suspenseful.
This is a great gothic novel, with a twist you wouldn’t guess at the climax. However, the sexual tension between the characters starts out heavy and immediate, in a way I had trouble with. This girl definitely didn’t act or think like a virgin AT ALL. A slower build to some of those thoughts would have helped. And I have some unanswered questions, like what happened to her cousin’s parents? Did the aunts really get away with what they did? Maybe a bit longer of a boom could have developed some points a bit more, but overall the story itself is well done and sticks with you.
Full of unpredictable events, with happy ending. You can’t put away that historic romance, which you read as a suspence.
