I have love and hate for this book. Are are confused yet? Well your not the only one. Do I recommend reading it? I wouldn't read it again, but you may love it.
That was my first book in the Dark Series.
I was hoping to be enlightened about the curse associated with this mansion and estate. It just couldn't hold my attention.
The pacing is good, with enough action, excitement and unconditional love (a necessity to destroy the evil curse at work).
The book starts with village girl Nicoletta being summoned to accompany the village "healer" Maria Pia, who raised Nicoletta since her mother's death, to the Scarletti Palazzo. They keep this charade to prevent the people at the palazzo knowing about Nicoletta's extraordinary healing powers (this heritage is explained in the Carpathian book "Dark Symphony, in which the lifemate is a descendant of the main characters/couple). As Maria Pia is a midwife herself this causes no problem.
At the palazzo the patients turned out to be Don Giovanni Scarletti and his niece Sofia, suffering from food poisoning. While both "healer" and assistant do their work, Don Scarletti keeps observing Nicoletta, asking her questions when Maria Pia fell asleep and after many dissatisfying non-answers says "I am not so blind as you and the healer seem to think"!
A few days later the "healer" and assistant were summoned to the palazzo again, but this time Nicoletta knows that no one is ill. Maria Pia therefore went back to the Palazzo with another assistant, but this assistant is old and when asked about Nicoletta kept telling the Don how wonderful and extraordinary she really is. This gives Don Giovanni a reason to choose a bride at The Bridal Convent. His choice is Nicoletta, who gets escorted (begging and struggling) back to the palazzo by the Don.
In the following days up to and after the wedding arguments heat up, a few murders commited, the staff gossip, while Nicoletta grows into the role of the Lady of the Palazzo.
