In a dazzling new novel in the Wherlocke family saga, New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell creates an unforgettable story of intrigue, jeopardy, and desire. . .
Stealing a stranger's carriage is the second most reckless thing Lady Catrin Gryffin de Warrene has ever done. The first is succumbing to her powerful attraction to the carriage's owner. Catrin has heard the rumors about Sir Orion Wherlocke's family and their otherworldly gifts. He's the one person who can keep her son and his inheritance safe from her late husband's ruthless brother. As for how to protect herself. . .it may be too late for that.
Orion is facing the worst danger a man of his ilk can find: a woman he can't walk away from. Catrin is an intoxicating blend of innocence and sensuality, and for the first time, seduction is far more than a game. But her beauty and fortune have made her a target--one that will dare him to risk everything he's known--in pursuit of everything he's ever longed for. . .

I have to say that it was indeed a pleasure to read this romantic tale penned by the talented Hannah Howell. As always, this reader was amazed by the newest adventure in the Wherlocke family saga.
This was a grand adventure as Sir Orion Wherlocke teams up with Lady Catryn to rescue her young son. Catryn's son has been kidnapped and she is hot on the trail when she inadvertently takes a carriage containing Giles, the mischievous young son of Orion Wherlocke. Once Orion catches up and learns the reason why, he gallantly offers to help in her quest.
So much happened that there was never a slow moment or a reason to put the book down. It had an exciting plot that took more than one twist and had more than one mystery to solve. The writing was excellent with a dialogue that flowed smooth and was so easy to read. As I have come to expect from this author, her characters took on a life of their own. They came alive in my imagination and that is exactly what I need to make it a great read. Finally, of course there was a romance and it was lovely, not just because of the sexual tension, but with a meaningful relationship that bloomed between the protagonists.
I enjoyed this book more than most. I could not have asked for a better book. I couldn't tear myself away. So I'll be giving it five flying stars and a huge recommendation to all historical romance readers.
