Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

At 29, Miss Nell Anslowe is viewed as "on the shelf" by Regency society. Ten years earlier, an accident damaged her leg and left her suffering from strange and disturbing dreams. She has been content spending time with her doting family, so she takes little heed of Lord Tynedale, knowing his interest in her stems only from her status as an heiress. What she does not count on is Lord Tynedale's desperation to keep from bankruptcy. He kidnaps her, and only quick thinking and a storm save her. Julian Weston, Earl of Wyndham, is on a fool's errand when his horse bolts, and he takes refuge in the same abandoned building in which Nell is hiding. They are discovered and forced to wed. The challenge of their unexpected marriage is overshadowed by Nell's dreams and the discovery that the sick and brutal visions may actually be happening in real life. Busbee seamlessly meshes Regency romance with haunting suspense, keeping fans riveted to the end. Engelmann, Patty

Format: Paperback
Ten years earlier, Eleanor "Nell" Anslowe, a beautiful wealthy heiress was once betrothed to a Duke's heir. That was before the `accident' which left her lame and haunted by nightmares of hideous brutality - always the same perpetrator who remained in shadows, but different victims. Firmly off the shelf at twenty-nine she agreed to accompany her father to London for the season where she is looked at as the answer to the nefarious Lord Tynedale's way out of debt. Rebuffing his advances, Tynedale later kidnapped her with the intention of rape and forcing her to wed, but due to a storm along the way, Nell escaped and found shelter in a nearby hut.

Fate stepped in when on that same stormy night, Julian, the Earl of Wyndham was racing to prevent his step-sister from eloping to Gretna Greene. Thrown by his horse he also found shelter in the same hut as Nell and when Nell's father and brother discovered them Julian - who had vowed never to re-marry - did the honorable thing and offered marriage. Their marriage would blossom into a sensual and powerful love that would last forever....or until they could discover the identity of Nell's `shadow man' before he destroyed them both.

*** I was completely swept away from the very first pages of this tremendous Regency Romance mystery and read it in one sitting. The author combined all the elements I look for in a romance with two ideal lead characters truly meant for one another; after the requisite initial problems of conflict over their hasty marriage. Julian is kind, honorable, considerate, and in lust with Nell until he finally realizes he's fallen in love with his wife.

Disappointing. That is the first word that comes to mind when I think of this book. It was in the "free loaner" pile at work, and I figured, "Why not?" After about 20 pages, I realized why not, but not being a quitter, I slogged through. I feel like Ms. Busbee was trying to backdoor into the love most female readers have for the Regency Period, without having actually done any research. Perhaps she picked up a discount copy of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Regency Colloquialisms" to add in a few words like 'perspicacious' and 'Lud!' All in all, I felt that she changed the time setting of the book last minute and threw in a couple of descriptions of period furniture to appeal to a larger audience. Which only means that more readers are going to be disappointed, because it does seem like an afterthought.
As far as story goes, I felt it to be pedestrian at best, as boring as watching grass grow at worst. The beautiful-feisty-woman-who-loses-her-intelligence-when-she-falls-in-love-with-her-husband-but-thinks-he-doesn't-love-her character is over-used. The rakishly-handsome-gentleman-who-has-been-wronged-and-swears-to-never-marry-or-love-another-woman character is, also, a cliche. But, surprise, they work out their misunderstandings, only to find their love threatened by a paranormal link with a sadistic killer. Gasp! Enter too many characters & sub-plots, too many unnecessary descriptions of furniture, hair ribbons, or lace handkerchief waving, and not enough substance to make this a well-told tale.
The story ends abruptly, as if the author finally got bored. The heroine is saved just in the nick of time and that's it. No actual resolution except the aunt getting her comeuppance for enabling her favorite son to be a killer.

I wish the back of the book would of told me the truth of what this book was about. I didnt know it was a murder myster/paranormal kind of book, I wouldnt of bought it if I did. Other than that the book was just ok. The chemistry between Julian and Nell was hit or miss and sometimes the book just dragged. Im not going to read the other books in the series, especially with the hints of Raoul still being alive. I dont feel like reading about more innocent women and babies being killed.

I was disappointed in my first Shirlee Busbee book. It seems to cater to the regency romance fan that is not turned off by cliches and formulas. I felt that was all this book was. The conflict exist between the characters in a way that makes them seem dumb and annoys the reader with constant miscommunications that go on way to long to have any repect for the character when they finally get with the program. I unfortunately already purchased the other two books in the trilogy so I will give Ms. Busbee another chance with the next one. One good thing that has come out of reading this book is I am finally getting a full nights sleep.

Format: Kindle Edition
When I began this book, I really wasn't sure what I would think of it. I love historical romances, but judging from the cover, I was concerned that it may have a lot of steamy sex scenes. I don't mind those scenes as long as they are within the confines of marriage. I know I'm old-fashioned, but that is just me.

I was instantly enthralled with the book. I loved Nell--I always love strong females, especially from bygone eras. And I also love books that take place in England. Both were true of this book. I was so glad that nothing happened between Nell and Julian until they were married. I also enjoyed the way in which the love and passion grew between them.

The story was basically a standard historical romance formula, but the author did insert a bit of a mystery. And this really made the story intriguing. I was pleased to have nearly figured out the mystery, and it certainly made me hungry for more. I was pleased to realize there are two sequels to this book (at least), and I plan to put those on my to-read list.

In conclusion, if you like a good historical romance with a bit of intrigue, I think you would like this book. The intimate scenes were steamy but not too steamy. And there was thankfully very minimal profanity--nothing too bad, which was nice.
