Lady Olympia Wherlocke has the gift of foresight. When Lady Agatha Mallam asks Olympia to locate her brother so he can rescue her from an arranged marriage, she knows exactly where to find Lord Brant Mallam, Earl of Fieldgate. What happens next is something she never envisioned…
Since his betrothed died, Lord Brant Mallam has drowned his sorrow with wine and women. His dissolute ways have only emboldened his calculating mother. But with the help of the enchanting Olympia, he concocts a daring plan to end his mother’s devious designs for his sister. While each step in their bold scheme works to perfection, the sins of the past could unravel a growing desire that neither Olympia nor Brant can control
This book had a gripping tale to tell. It is about the evil that people do to children and it is cheer worthy the way the protagonists fight this evil. Of course, it is a romance and that is swoon worthy also. Although I certainly liked the writing and the story I thought I could come into this book 5 of the series and I would know precisely what was going on. I was totally lost. I really think the way to fully enjoy this book is to read this series from the beginning. Ms Howell gets kudos for the story but It took me many pages to figure out what the Wherlocke family was. My conclusion is, if you have previously read books in this series it will be another that you will enjoy but if like me you are new to this series than I really think you should start at the beginning.
I love this cover picture. If that is Brant than it is surely understandable that Olympia fell for him.
