In a dazzling new novel in the Wherlocke family saga, New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell creates an unforgettable story of intrigue, jeopardy, and desire…
 Stealing a stranger’s carriage is the second most reckless thing Lady Catryn Gryffin de Warrenne has ever done. The first is succumbing to her powerful attraction to the carriage’s owner. Catryn has heard the rumors about Sir Orion Wherlocke’s family and their otherworldly gifts. He’s the one person who can keep her son and his inheritance safe from her late husband’s ruthless brother. As for how to protect herself…it may be too late for that.

 Orion is facing the worst danger a man of his ilk can find: a woman he can’t walk away from. Catryn is an intoxicating blend of innocence and sensuality, and for the first time, seduction is far more than a game. But her beauty and fortune have made her a target—one that will dare him to risk everything he’s known—in pursuit of everything he’s ever longed for…

My Review:

Intro: I haven’t read many historicals lately. And that is odd for me. But I am so so happy to have read this one because Hannah Howell is a favorite of mine.


Heroine: Catrin-Catrin was a lovely character. She was so likable and kind. She was one of the easier to like heroines I have come across recently. I loved that she was willing to do anything for her son and never lost her strength.

Hero: Orion-First of all, I loved his name. That is quite important to me. I am an odd duck. I loved him as much as I loved Catrin. I thought he was a great hero. I loved how he treated his children.

Chemistry: I wasn’t necessarily expected to be really impressed with Catrin and Orion’s chemistry but I really was. Their chemistry was intense and they were just perfect together.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I walked into this book expecting a straight up historical romance but I was really pleased to see some elements of paranormal in there. And, to be honest, paranormal is not really my favorite thing but I really thought it worked well here.

Overall, this was a great read and Hannah Howell is a terrific author.

  1. Hes, Hannah is one of my auto-buy authors, but I don't have this story yet, and I'm getting "antsy" to read it. :-) I, too, like the reviewer, enjoy heroines and heroes who are good parents and family folk, no matter how highborn (or lowborn they are. Thanks so much for this post!

  2. Hannanh is on my always read list. I have liked everything I've read by her, and I have read all she has wrote.
