PUB. INFO: Brava, March 2012
GENRE: Paranormal Historical Romance
SETTING: England, 1859
MY GRADE: B
From Publisher: Jacob Preston has three requirements for a woman desiring access to his bed: She must be enthusiastic in affairs of passion, jaded in matters of the heart, and – to ensure the first two qualifications – she must be married.
Lady Julianne Cambourne’s unmarried status should render her firmly off limits. Instead, it proves a temptation, especially when she comes to him in desperation, looking for the kind of answers only he can give. For, beyond his rakish reputation, Jacob is known for the mysterious power of detection he commands through his sense of touch. And Julianne, surrounded by secrets that threaten to ensnare her in a deadly trap, will do whatever it takes to recruit his skills…using every form of persuasion at her disposal…
MY THOUGHTS: This was a pretty interesting read. I don’t normally read anything paranormal but tried this one. Both lead characters are likeable and get along great together. She first contacts him because she needs his help finding a missing sixth dagger. She plans to sell the set because she desperately needs the money. They have great chemistry and the sex scenes are hot.
I didn’t mind hearing about Jacob’s gift of sight but I was totally uninterested in reading about Druids and won’t again. I also didn’t understand why Jacob wanted to marry Julianne so soon after meeting her and was puzzled as to why the author threw that in so soon. I feel this book should be labeled as historical fiction instead of romance.
I received this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
