Chloe Wherlocke is one of 'those' Wherlockes. Her ancestors have been feared, burned at the stake, and nowadays whispered about amongst the ton. She 'knows things' and woe betide those who don't listen. When she rushes to her disgraced sister's side, she assumes at first it's just to help her sister deal with the death of her husband and birth of her child. But soon Chloe realizes the reason for her presence is much more sinister than that. She's there to save, not her sister nor her sister's unborn child; but rather the rightful heir to a Earldom.
Julian Kenwood is the Earl of Colinsmoor. He has wealth, good looks, and a title to boot. But he's also suffered through his marriage to a vain, grasping, and faithless woman. He could have withstood it all if his child had lived. But the death of his only child has thrown him into a downward spiral via alcohol and whores. But someone has been watching out for him, and after the fourth attempt on his life, it's time for them to step in and show him everything he has to live for.
This story is so much better than I can describe without giving too much away. Writing about it makes the plot seem unreal, but while I read it I was 100% IN the story and it was totally believeable. There's not 'magic'...exactly. Instead, the gifts this special lineage has are those of 'the sight', 'the knowing', and 'reading'...Read more ›
Three years later they rescue a drunken Julian Kenwood from an assassin. Julian informs the Wherlocke cousins that his man-eating adulteress wife Lady Beatrice and his Uncle Arthur want him dead. He also mentions his wife gave birth a few years ago to a stillborn. He is shocked when he meets his son Anthony and how duplicitous his spouse is having exchanged their live child for a dead infant. Leo offers to protect father and son starting with spreading a rumor that the Earl died and sometime afterward taking the fight to the evil duet. Meanwhile as the two Kenwood males become acquainted, the older falls in love with Chloe, who reciprocates.
This Georgian romantic urban fantasy is an exciting suspenseful tale of love, murder and adultery. The lead pairing of Chloe and Julian is handled smartly to overcome the obvious anticipation that they will fall in love. In spite of the villains being so outrageously vile they are over the top of Big Ben, fans will appreciate Hannah Howell's enjoyable historical as the beleaguered in love heroes try to keep Anthony safe while struggling with staying alive against incredible odds and insane evil.
Regrettably, I would not recommend this book unless you are a huge fan of the author and used to the quirks of her style and humor.
Julian's uncle and wife want to kill him and his heirs. Chloe saves his son, only to find herself falling for him and also targeted by the BadGuys.
- Historical paranormal (visions) romance - set in London 1788 (Georgian).
- 376 pages, 4557 kindle locations
- m/f - reasonably frequent and explicit enough for the genre but not overly so.
- Part of series but would comfortably stand alone.
- Includes an excerpt from "If He's Sinful" by Hannah Howell.
A fun alternative series combining a light paranormal romance with Georgian historical light suspense.
It is an easy, enjoyable book. From saving the hero from himself ("rutting like a goat and drinking oneself blind seemed a little excessive") to Chloe's nice motherly instincts and a well-considered, well-planned World, it works. There is nothing to complain about, and lots of love.
Aside: What was with the vision of mum and a mysterious man on the beach? It seems a rather useless foreshadowing.
