Lucy Ashton had long ago given up her quest for true love. In the rarified society of Victorian England, Lucy plays the game—flirting, dancing, and dabbling in the newly fashionable spiritualism. Even marrying when—and who—she’s supposed to. If the stuffy Duke of Sussex cannot spark the passion she craves, he can at least give her a family, a home of her own, and a place to belong. But when her polite marriage reveals a caring and sensual man, Lucy begins to wonder if she can indeed have it all.
But Lord Sussex is not the man the London ton has come to admire. And Lucy has some ghosts of her own, as well. Thus, when a blackmail scheme turns to threats of danger, the newfound peace of the Sussex marriage is cast upon the rocks. Passion has a price, Lucy learns. And not all ghosts stay buried.

Yes, it was seductive and dark and gritty. No one writes a love scene like Featherstone.
All the love scenes are memorable. There enticing and exciting.
Lord Sussex. I loved the readers smooth rich voice. Her different accents were intriguing and even though she is a women she did a pretty descent job as a man.
I wish books that were cliffhangers came with warnings. I like to read them in succession instead of having to wait months for the next book to come out. So be forewarned, if you don't like to wait either, the end is the beginning of another book.
Very intriguing and gripping. One of the better audio books I have read.
I loved the plot, the mystery, the true passion and love described, and how you can truly love another and share your soul with them.
the drama in her reading was exceptional. you could really FEEL the characters, their emotions and passions. The voiceovers were great!!!
Although I enjoyed this book immensely. It is a cliffhanger. You know who Orpheus is; or at least one thinks they do. I wanted more. I wanted a true conclusion. I was looking to see if it was part of a series because it ended slightly abruptly. Still....a very enjoying book. Loved the story, the plot, Ms. de Leeuw was simply fantastic. Thanks for such a great book.
