She’s too prim
Lilah Holcutt dislikes Constantine Moreland from the moment she meets him. He may be handsome, but he’s frivolous, rash, impulsive and, worst of all, a flirt. Now that Con’s twin brother has married Lilah’s best friend, she’s seeing way more of Con than she’d like. And when Con’s sisters are inexplicably kidnapped, Lilah’s own curiosity and stubbornness get the better of her, and she finds herself swept into Con’s investigation.
He’s indifferent to propriety
Con knows that Lilah hates him—he just wishes she weren’t so devastatingly beautiful, that he weren’t so attracted to her. Especially since they’re working closely together to solve the kidnapping, an adventure that leads them to Lilah’s peculiar childhood home, Barrow House, which sits atop an ancient fen and features an eerie maze on its grounds.
They’ll have to join together to conquer a sinister force
The more Con and Lilah uncover, the more they’re convinced that the answers lie buried deep within Barrow House—answers to a mystery darker than either of them could ever have realized.
A Magnificent Moreland
Entertaining from beginning until the last page, Candace Camp sprinkles her magic prose in the next installment of the Mad Morelands. Setting 1898 London where two people who appear opposite, seem to be pulled to each other. Of course being related by marriage is the main culprit. You see Lilah Holcutt's best friend just married Constantine Moreland's twin brother, but all she can see is Con's carefree impulsive nature and a flirt of the first degree! Con thinks Lilah is just so beautiful but she seems not to like him since they first met. But circumstances draw them together as they help each other find out what has happened to Con's sisters. They have been kidnapped and they work frantically to find them. As secrets come to light and even a twist of the paranormal, these two begin to have strong emotions for each other. This author holds me captive in each story I have read. Her well drawn characters easily come to life and she captures the essence of the era in which the story is set. I cannot wait for more of this series, although this book can be read as a standalone. But why would you want to only read one? Prepare to be swept into this wonderful story that you will not be able to put down!!
Thank you for your review.
FANTASIC! His Wicked Charm by Candace Camp may be her finest yet and I have read all her books! This is the 6th book in the Mad Moreland Series and I recommend that you read all 6 but this book can stand alone. The research Candace must have put into this book was unbelievable. It was so exciting form the very first page to the last. I am in awe over it! The story has paranormal, jealousy, arguments, deception, courting, misunderstandings, adventure, secret passages, a maze, madness, connections, greed, family and always love! I highly recommend this book… you won’t be disappointed! So travel back to 1892 London With Con Moreland and Lilah Holcutt on an adventure unlike any other.
