Power so often corrupts and Conn's latest heroine can feel the darkness inside her seeking release. Chazma Donnelly plays a dangerous game. The Fae power inside her is a growing darkness that she has no idea how to dispel. The wildness these powers stir in her blood nearly has her throwing herself at her new boss. It is embarrassing. NOW is just not the time for them to be running away on her.
Her parents have been brutally murdered by what seems to be a serial killer and she is consumed with the need to avenge them. There is a mystery to be solved if she is going to find their killer. Dealing with stirrings of power and lust are the last things she wants to be focused on. That is why she took this job in Ireland. The trail to the killer leads here, and to revenge. There is no room for anything else.
Oooo how Claudy Conn loves to place difficulties in the paths of her heroines and Darklove is no exception to this rule. Another thing that is also true of a Conn romance is - the man flesh, "gotta be tall, gotta be hot, and hubba-hubba handsome!" Lord Jethro McBain is all of that and more, a lot more. He is a man like no other she has ever encountered, but he is off limits and she is on a mission.
Chazma should trust him. Her grandmother totally set her up with the job organizing his library. Maybe that is part of the problem. This feels like a set-up, a distraction to keep her from focusing on catching the murderer.Read more ›
I am a sucker for paranormal regency romance books. They are pretty much my favorite. I swear I was born in the time :)
There was something very enchanting and magical to this book. The love story was so sweet but there was also darkness to it as well "Darklove" describes it perfectly.
Chaz is a blonde, green eyed beauty who is coming into her own as a witch. Her parents were brutally murdered and she will not rest until she finds out who is responsible and makes them pay for it. That is until she meets Jethro.. He is handsome, dark and dangerous. He makes her feel things she has never felt before. Can she trust him? She knows he is hiding something from her.
Can they work together? Well read this book and find out!!!
The chemistry between Chaz and Jethro was sizzling hot.. Their encounter in the study was erotic and oh so sexy!!
This is a must read for all paranormal, regency and magic lovers :)

Andrea's review was first posted at Romancing the Book.
I am a huge fan of paranormal romance. Right now it is the genre I read the most and I am a sucker for a steamy, get-your-heart-racing, feel the blush on my cheeks romance.
Our heroine is Chazma, who under the guise of a new job, travels to Ireland to track down the killer of her parents. She immediately meets the man of the house, and her new boss, Lord Jethro McBain, who is tall, dark and oh-so-handsome! He immediately gets her blood boiling and so starts this romance.
Chazma and Lord Jethro are H-O-T! They follow the normal romance equation of promises to stay away from each other but constantly being pulled together but an unseen force. Their moments are highly emotional, to say the least. They have misunderstandings, tell white lies and give each other a lot of longing looks from underneath eyelashes. Jethro is an ultimate alpha male - taking what he wants and making no excuses. He's the very rich Lord of the house, is not questioned by anyone (well...almost anyone) as to what he does or how he does it.
Unfortunately, the book was a big confusing. Chazma is introduced and quickly on her journey but there wasn't much background as to who she really is. I felt like I was always trying to catch up. We eventually find out who the "big bad" is but I feel like it was so hurried at the end that we didn't really get to know what his motivation was. Also, the book was set in Ireland, one of the most gorgeous countries on this planet, and I didn't feel connected to the environment at all.
Even with those few things, the book was enjoyable. The romance was excellent and the scenes between Chaz and Jethro were sizzling.
