Graham, Lord Blakemore is back at Castle Black after 18 years at sea. Lady Agnes Blakemore recognizes her lost son instantly; however for selfish reasons her other family members disagree and Graham himself is not 100% sure.
Intrigue, infidelity, attempted rape, poisoning, murder, and conspiracy reign in this isolated locale. The reader is assailed with multiple villains with their own motives for their actions.
I was captured immediately by the premise and eagerly read this book. However, when I found myself at 91% with so many loose ends needing to be resolved, my disappointment set in. I knew that the ending would be rushed and I wouldn't see all of the ends tied neatly. That being said, I truly hope that there is a continuation to this story. I have too many questions that were not answered.
The Love Story
Beatrice and Graham are immediately drawn to one another. Beatrice, an orphaned ward of the estate, had known Graham during their childhood and had clear though unpleasant memories of the boy he had been. She became his immediate ally and obsession upon his return.
I enjoyed the scenes that they shared. Graham's absolute certainty that Beatrice is the ONE in spite of her objections is priceless. Beatrice's reservations are valid based on the circumstances as described, but we are never given the details as to whether these circumstances are true or simply manufactured by one of our villains.
Beatrice is an older, spinster heroine, which I love. She is smart, outspoken and resourceful in the face of continued attempted assaults on her virtue within the home.
In this tale the villains outnumber the protagonists. The castle is ominous with secret passages leading into dangerous, seemingly uninhabited areas. The villains are acting independently of one another each seeking his or her own means. One villain is never even present, yet is actively draining resources from the estate. With all of these bad actors, surely there is another book to set matters right.
My mission is to find other books or await their creation. I really enjoyed this story and I so crave a satisfying resolution.
