About the Author

She wanted to tell him that all she wanted to do was help his mother, but she knew he would not listen. "What possible harm could I mean to you or your family?"
"What harm do women always mean?"
She stared at him, confused. Before she could fathom his words, he pulled her closer with a firm hand on her back.
Mirroring her conflicted emotions, Earnest whined, then growled, and then whined again.
The shock of contact left Belle breathless. She stood with her palms pressed against his chest, a traitorous enjoyment creeping from her toes to her hairline. His hold forced her limbs against his hard legs. The heat of his breath brushed intimately against her mouth.
She knew she should give him a severe set-down, but all she wanted was to see his angry gaze melt with desire. Why would he not end her torment and kiss her? Mortified by that improper thought, Belle leaned away, but the dog was plastered against the backs of her knees. Some watchdog. She shoved him back, but Lord Terrance held her in place, as if to assert his mastery. To prove she was being released, not pulling away.
"How . . . how dare you, sir." The protest came far too late and sounded abysmally weak. In her mind, she heard Mrs. Jones say, A proper young lady would be overcome by the experience.
"I am a lady." She cursed her breathy voice, no longer certain the statement was even true. Did ladies dream of being ravished? "I am not a . . ."
"A Cyprian?" The word was a caress.
She should not know what that meant, but she had heard the word whispered as another form of harlot, a mistress, an illicit lover. "I have no idea what that means."
The tips of her ears singed with guilty heat even as he laughed with patent disbelief. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

When she was asked by the Countess of Marlesbury to please come to their estate and rid the castle of the ghost that was haunting it--how could she refuse--especially since this woman was known to her grandfather and he wanted her to go,
Rufus Marlesbury, the Earl of Terrance,the son of the countess is being accused of his father's murder--he has to prove himself innocent. He kicks Anabelle out-but his mother intervenes. He makes her promise she will never speak of ghosts to any of his family members.
She does find the ghost--a very angry one at that--will she be able to calm this ghost down and find out why he is still hanging around--will the Earl be able to clear his name? Will he ever be able to stop saving Annabelle--who generally is a castastrophe waiting to happen.
This novel kept me reading and I have to say I was shocked at who the murderer really was!
Sex - unchaste kisses, fantasies about disrobing/sex - see above
Language - swearing
Violence - murder, attempted murder
Religion - none
While there are some elements from the trope of Beauty and the Beast; Verdam's romance is primarily a Gothic style mystery, complete with a vengeful ghost.
I give it a well deserved 5 stars and will check out the other books by this author.
