A brooding marquess

And a mysterious widow

On the outside, Henry Spencer, Marquess of Clairborne, has it all: title, fortune and dashing good looks. Inside he’s haunted by nightmares. Seeking sanctuary at his Scottish estate, his peace is disturbed by a new tenant, widow Genevieve de l’Omont. Her beauty and spirit lead to a growing desire that distracts him from his troubles, but as he unravels a mystery from his past, he discovers Genevieve has secrets of her own…


I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

There is a Gothic feel to this historical romance. Henry, the Marquess, seeks solace in a remote estate from his troubled past. Genevieve enjoys the anonymity the remote area provides after escaping her past. They both seek peace and privacy, and Genevieve values her hard-fought independence. She unsettles his solitude, and there is an attraction they cannot ignore.

Their relationship is conflicted, and the emotional barriers are high, making a happy ever after remote until they learn to trust. I like the Gothic style of this story, with a haunted hero. The characters are complex and easy to empathise with, and the romance is gentle.

Lotte James trained as an actor and theatre director but spent most of her life working day jobs crunching numbers whilst dreaming up stories of love and adventure. She’s thrilled to finally be writing those stories, and when she’s not scribbling on tiny pieces of paper, she can usually be found wandering the countryside for inspiration or nestling with coffee and a book.
