Oliver Darby left London to escape his father's manipulating ways. When the old Earl passed away and Oliver returned to London as the new Earl of Stanton, he discovered his father was capable of controlling events from beyond the grave. Oliver's sister, Rose, was missing, and he knew his father was behind her disappearance.
When Oliver arrived at the place where his sister was held prisoner, he found Rose gone and a companion, Nicole, in her place. Oliver and Nicole set out to search for Rose, but matters were complicated by a stolen identity, spurned lovers, a savage relative, and their undeniable attraction to each other.
This was a great mix of romance and mystery! It's the first in the series, and was all about Oliver and Nicole. Rose's story is continued in the sequel. It's a steamy read with a set of main characters that can't keep their hands off each other. It had a suspenseful plot and kept me hooked through the entire listen.
I love a strong willed and intelligent heroine, and Nicole was both. She kept a level head and usually came up with the plans. I loved that Oliver recognized her intelligence and never argued with her for the sake of having his way. He respected her and it showed in their every interaction. I loved their dialogue and the way they teased each other. They really had great chemistry.
The narration was done well, she performed different voices for each character and read dramatically. It was a great performance, especially her voices for Oliver and Nicole. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.
This was an excellent start to a new series. There were many layers of the mystery that were slowly revealed, along with many twists and turns. It kept me engrossed until the end. The main characters, Oliver and Nicole, had an instant attraction and some very heated moments.
The narrator used different voices to bring the characters to life, not always easy for the male parts, but she deepened her voice accordingly.
I'm looking forward to the next in this series.
I received a copy and I voluntarily reviewed it. This is my honest review.
