This paranormal Regency romance by the New York Times bestselling author “will have readers beaming from the first page to the last” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
England, 1790. When Lorelei Sundun first finds Sir Argus Wherlocke in her garden, she's never heard of the mysterious Wherlocke clan, or their otherworldly abilities. That changes the moment she watches Argus—the most tantalizing man she's ever seen—disappear before her very eyes. What she's witnessed should be impossible. But so should falling in love with a man she's only just met.
Pursued by a madman intent on harnessing the Wherlockes' talents as weapons, Argus meant to seek help from his family, not to involve a duke's lovely daughter in the struggle. But now, the enchanting Lorelei is his only hope for salvation—and the greatest temptation he's ever faced.
Fans will delight in Howell's third Wherlocke paranormal Regency (after 2010's If He's Wild) from the moment the psychically projected image of a very naked Sir Argus Wherlocke appears to Lorelei Sundun in her father's rose garden. Instead of screaming or fainting like a proper duke's daughter, Lorelei offers to help Argus escape from the unscrupulous government men who are trying to exploit his abilities. After they meet in the flesh, Lorelei is certain that Argus is her soul mate; Argus, scarred by memories of his parents' disastrous marriage, wants to hold himself aloof, but Lorelei resists all his efforts to put her off or control her mind, and soon wins him over with her beauty and strength of character. Gentle but passionate love scenes and endearing descriptions of close-knit, quirky families will have readers beaming from the first page to the last.
What a wonderful story full of romance, magic, and mystery. I will be reading more of her books in the future.
