In 1763, to the Ton, even to the impoverish aristocrats, Leo remains a commoner beneath them. He knows the only ticket to the ballrooms is an aristocratic bride. He chooses bookworm Anne Hartfield, daughter of an impoverished baron; she accepts as she knows that with no dowry he is her only marital offer. Both are stunned when they begin to fall in love with each other. However, Lord Whitney, once a Hellraiser, warns Anne that Leo sold his soul into damnation and only she can redeem him.
The second Hellraisers' paranormal Georgian romance is a terrific paradoxical Faustian thriller starring a bad boy hero who sold himself to the devil and the caring female who prays she can rescue his soul through his heart. Though the premise is similar to Devil's Kiss, the heroine's reserve personality is different than her extroverted Romany predecessor so she refreshes the fast-paced storyline from her opening marriage to a stranger to the final confrontation as once again love may not be enough to save his soul.
Paranormal Romance -May 1st, 2012
As the second in the author's paranormal Hellraisers series, the handsome but ruthlessly money hunger Leopold Bailey must determine if love is more important than security.
Poor Anne Hartfield doesn't know what her new marriage will bring. Impoverished but coming from a titled family, her new husband is darkly enigmatic. No one knows very much about Leopold Bailey's rise to riches except that he always seems to conquer those who might try to crush him. Due to his fabulous wealthy, he had gained the hand of Lady Anne in exchange for much needed funds. Neither knows each other well but Leopold wants her connections.
However, the sweet, mousy Anne has decided that she will no longer stay in the background as a proper lady should and begins to become more assertive. This new side to Anne fascinates Leo, and he finds that he can trust her. But his biggest secret is that his rise to wealth has been aided by the Devil who has marked him as a Hellraiser. And as such Leo has been given the skill to foresee the future. But Leo is in danger of losing his soul should he continue on this path of destruction. Can Leo redeem himself before it is too late or will the rest of the Hellraisers get to him first?
This is a fascinating new series. Each of the Hellraisers has certain powers according to their pact with the Devil. Each is marked and as they become more corrupted, the mark grows until their soul is all that remains for the Devil to take. Each Hellraiser has reasons for their pact. I liked how the author makes the `bad' guy into the hero and makes the reader sympathetic to Leo's unswerving need for money and status. His poor and troubled past drives him to want more power and control. Yet it is when he meets the gentle Anne who has surprising strength and faith in him, that he sees that there is more to life. At first, Anne really seems like a mouse and it was vastly enjoyable to read her break free and stand on her own, even against Leo. This romance has added drama as Anne is imbued with powers that help her fight the Devil and save Leo from a mysterious source.
This paranormal romance is compelling as men who have made a deal with the devil must make a choice between what they thought they wanted most and true love.
