Sassy Winthrop just turned 21 years old, but instead of celebrating she is grieving over the loss of her father. She has lost everything she holds dear her mother and now her father, she must also move away from the only home she’s known and move in with her mother’s best friend to make way for the new county vicar. Sassy is also struggling with coming into her powers as a white witch.
When Sassy take’s on a teaching position at Netherby Halls is when things start to get really interesting. The walls of the school are filled with a great evil, one that Sassy must overcome to not only save herself but the girls in the school as well. But that is not all Sassy is faced with, she must also face The Eighth Marquis of Dartmour, Justin Dartmour who she seems to have visions of, not to mention she keeps running into him when all she wants to do is getaway.
I loved Sassy as the main character. She really lives up to her name in this book; she is also a very strong woman who refuses to back down. The back and forth between Sassy and The Marquis is pretty funny at times because they are both so stubborn.
Claudy I must say is one of my very favorite Historical Romance authors because not only her books so well written and thought out, but she really knows how to capture your attention throughout the whole book. I highly recommend reading not only this book but all of her books as well.
I liked the novel. However, there were multiple confusing features. First of all, it was hard to gauge the characters’ personalities because they were inconsistent. There was a mystery to be solved so the characters changed their demeanor depending on who they were interacting with. The author did not let us in on their line of thinking, however. It wasn’t until the end when all the pieces came together that we were able to understand their motives and actions.
Secondly, having to keep reading that “there was something amiss at Netherby Halls” became tedious and annoying after the second time. Once would have been enough. Once a chapter was just redundant. I would say shows us that something is wrong instead of just telling us, but the author did both making it further repetitive. It is unnecessary to show that something is amiss and then state blatantly that “something was seriously wrong at Netherby Halls!”
But indeed something was wrong at Netherby Halls and commend the author for making it horrific. I appreciate her using something dark besides the typical pirating, stealing, what have you.
Overall, I enjoyed the novel. Despite its aggravations, it was a good novel. I liked the lead couple and the story was interesting. If you like a good plot to go with your historical romance, this is definitely for you.
When Sassy's father passed away she had no choice but to seek an employment and found a post as a teacher at Netherly Halls. At first everything seemed to be normal until Sassy discovered some mysterious mean looking men being admitted in secretly in the dead of night by the headmistress. The knowledge of a missing former teacher before her and her suspicion of the headmistress had Sassy prowling in the halls whenever she hears or sees unusual occurrence that eventually put her directly in the path of danger and only her magic can save her.
Justin was on a mission himself, to try to find out what happened to his friends daughter who was a teacher at Netherly Halls, disappeared and never to be seen again.
Netherby Halls...a place that whispers something evil lurking around yet full of magic and erotic dreams so vivid it seems so real.
Sassy, a white witch, Justin, Marquis of Dartmour, a warlock with dark powers, together they have made it their mission to discover the mystery that surrounds Netherly Halls. This is a romantic love story that spells evil, mystery and danger...where nothing seems to be what they are.
