A dark family legacy, a prodigal son returns, a young woman caught in a web of deceit, and an evil that will take great cunning to defeat. This introduction to the Granville Legacy set things in motion and I can’t wait to see it all play out.
I loved this story’s classical Gothic romance atmosphere and the introduction to a fantastic cast of characters even the evil Earl of Litchfield who I loved to hate on. It’s like a historical romantic suspense with a large cast of characters full of strengths, flaws, tangled feelings and relationships and plotting. I got a taste of the complex and twisting plot that this was merely the opening gambit for what is to follow.
This was a shorter piece and set the table well for the series. It read fast, but was developed and had time for a sweet romance to build between Richard Granville the second of Litchfield’s sons and the lovely, sweet Jane who misguidedly is willing to sacrifice much for familial duty and affection. A few other promising situations are introduced even as the book wraps up with a mystery and a new threat.
All in all, I was enchanted by this intro to a new series that promises a strong and complex series arc and some engaging romances. I can definitely recommend this sweet with a hint of spice and suspenseful historical romance.
My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
