I loved Julia. She is nurturing, intuitive, and smart and what most parents would aspire to be to young Charlie. Charlie is endearing and cheeky - I adored him. Douglas was multi-faceted....ridiculously wealthy, but has some figurative scars, as well. His mother is something else. I don't think Amazon would like me call her what she is. ;)
There were twists and turns, some that even my jaded mind did not expect at all. I liked the pacing of the story. I got it on my Kindle yesterday, and am finished with it today because I devoured the story. I can't wait for the second one.
(Dark Gardens #1)
My usual genre is Historical Romance and this began as such but soon turned to something more mystical and quite enjoyable.
Julia Marsden, daughter of the late vicar living in the village of Borrowdale, has been caring for her orphaned cousins child Charles since he was a baby.
Ms Platt has weaved a tale of magical bluebells and faerie king Cadeyrn. Enter Douglas the Earl of Eastbourne to retrieve his so called illegitimate nephew from Julia. Douglas has arrived in Borrowdale with the distinct impression Julia has been using Charles as a source of money from his family.
This story follows with many unseen twists rafted by Ms Platt which prove very entertaining.
Faeries, dragons and their king come to life in this well crafted story of magic, mistrust and the powerful human emotion called love. The pages leap to life with mystical lights, delightful waltzes and perfumed gardens of bluebells.
This paranormal, set during the Regency era, has the heroine, Julia, facing two men who threaten to destroy her happy home and steal away the only family she has left.
Julia's fierce protection and determination to keep her little boy safe, will touch the heart of every mother and has you fighting right beside her.
Douglas, a hero you can't help but fall in love with, battles his own demons as well as the mystical ones.
A little boy that will tug your heart strings, and a plot that will keep you hooked until the very last page, once again, Meara Platt has delighted us with a superb story that will stay with you well after the last page.
