The Curse of Lord Stanstead
London, 1819. Wherever Cassandra Darkin goes, fire is sure to follow. It's not until she's swept into the arms of a handsome, infuriating stranger that she learns she's responsible for the fires. As it turns out, Cassandra is a fire mage...and with her gift comes a blazing desire for sins of the flesh.
With his pretenatural ability to influence the thoughts of others, Garrett Sterling is sent to gather Cassandra for the Order of the M.U.SE. He's entirely unprepared for his immediate attraction to the comely little firestarter. But it's an attraction that he must quell, even as his body craves her touch and her fiery, sensual hunger.
For Garrett's gift has a dark side...and the moment he begins to care too much for Cassandra, he knows he will doom her to an inescapable fate.
The Order of the M.U.S.E. series is best enjoyed in order.

The Curse of Lord Sanstead
An unique blend of romance, historical setting and sy-fi. The story flowed quite well with few subplots to slow it down, although predictability made it less engaging. Hence the 4 stars instead of 5. However all required elements were present.
Fun blend of pnr and regency romance
Well researched and well- written, it had me believing in MUSE and caught up in Cassie and Garret's love story.
