From the first, I appreciated Lord Fen’s work ethic and desire to keep himself busy as a furniture maker. You see, he had a bit of magic in him that necessitated such an occupation. I’ll let Fen tell his story himself, but suffice it to say, it was best for him and those around that he made beautiful furniture. His father was embarrassed at his trade. After all, he was the son of a Marquis, Marquis of Overwood to be exact.
Fen’s furniture partner, Harry Wellcome, got himself in a bit of trouble and Lord Fen was determined to get him. At the same time, his past love of five years previous was planning on getting married to Lord Slough (such an appropriate name!) whom Lord Fen suspected involved in some unsavory business, possibly traitorous to his country.
I enjoyed character Andromeda Gibbons, a woman full of imagination, nerve, bravery and intelligence. She was also still half in love with Lord Fenimore whom she hated (?!?!?!), but he had dumped her for no reason some five years earlier. That’s when she decided to be the perfect lady, so perfect she eventually began hating who she had become, the fiancée to Earl of Slough. But the saying holds true, you can’t change the spots on a leopard. Underneath all that ladyship, she was some woman!Read more ›
Fen's Partner, Mr. Wellcome has been accused of treason and transporting spies into England. Fen knows this is not true and sets out to find out who is actually doing these things. They figure out that the person must be of noble birth and well known in the ton. They both have a suspect in mind and decide to start watching him. Mr. Wellcome, disguised as a footman, and Fen go to a ball to watch him. Unfortunately, the woman who broke Fen's heart just so happens to be this man's fiance. The man is Lord Slough and his betrothed, Fen's childhood friend, Andromeda Gibbons.
Fen and Andromeda both shared something that no one else, except Andromeda's mother, understood or believed. They used magic. They could both see the hobgoblins running around and they both knew true magic. Andromeda's mother had fairy blood. Her father never believed or tried to believe. After her mother's death, her father and aunt persuaded her that it was not real and she lost her magic. And she lost Fen, by the word of what he thought was a friend.
Now they meet again in a crowded ballroom, indifferent acquaintances only, she is rude and snubs him, but seeing him makes her realize that her life isn't going where she wants it to. She decides to go a sit quietly to think things out, finding an empty sitting room, she relaxes. Unfortunately someone is coming just as she is leaving, she must hide for she recognizes the voice of the man, it is Lord Slough. She hides behind the drapes and waits.Read more ›
Andromeda doesn't believe in her magic powers, but when her life is at stake, she realizes she is able to control fire (hence the name: Lady of the Flames). Attending a fancy ball with her fiance, Lord Slough, who is one of the most eligible bachelors in the country (and whom she does not love) she runs into her former love, Fen, who had unceremoniously left her five years earlier due to a misunderstanding. The haughty Lord Slough looks down on Fen and speaks disparagingly of him. Andromeda dislikes Lord Slough even more when she heard him speak down to Fen, and she tries to think of a way to break off her disastrous engagement.
Later in the evening, Andromeda overhears Lord Slough speaking with a Frenchman, and she realizes Lord Slough is a traitor to England. Not only is he smuggling French spies out of England, but he's also planning to sell to the French the names of two English spies who are working inside France.Read more ›
