Publisher's Summary

Can she save him from the darkness in his soul... or will it destroy them both?
After her brother is killed in the Crimean War, innocent young Oriel Pembroke finds herself alone in the world. Disowned by the cruel father who has always despised her, she has nowhere to turn until she is taken under the wing of a glamorous relative she never knew: the former Duchess of Ellsworth, who has scandalized society by remarrying soon after her first husband's death. At the opulent seaside estate of Ellsmere, Oriel thinks she has found a safe haven - but the darkly handsome young duke, Herron, believes otherwise. Haunted by the death of his father, he suspects that Ellsmere is sheltering a murderer.
Even as Oriel falls in love with the duke, she begins to fear that his grief and suspicion are turning to madness. When dangerous accidents start to befall both Herron and Oriel, however, she realizes that someone may be trying to stop them from discovering the truth about the past. And when her father comes back into her life, she learns that he may hold the answer to the most horrifying secret of all...

Enjoyable gothic

I'm having a very hard time reviewing this book. I loved the story right up until the father made an appearance in the last quarter of the book. He was just so over the top evil that it became cliche, and yet, I'll probably re-listen at some future date. I just wish the author would have trusted her story a little more and kept it gothic. It deserves 3-1/2 stars, but not 3.

Narrator was perfect. And I will look for more by this author.

My review on 'Sea of Secrets'!

Loved this book! The language, the story, the gothic old English style, yet new and enticing. Wording was so carefully chosen, and the characters
believable and charismatic, each one unique and with flaws and personas which simply made you either hate or love them.

I suggest this book to anyone who enjoys books such as Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and so forth. The end was a bit disappointing as I expected a different ending. However, I could not put this book down and forget where I had left off. I simply could not wait until
I got back to it.
