While there she meets a very strange assortment of characters--the "scarecrow" butler, the "porcelain doll" and "witch" that work in the dress shop, ...more
"I have to find a missing person."
"A missing person?" Susan leaned forward. How romantic! This explained his mercurial moods. And why he was equally averse to being sighted along with Susan. "Who is she? Where do you think she went? Why do you think she left?"
"Not a she." He drained his brandy. "And I doubt he had much choice in the matter. He's dead."
"You lost a dead person?" she echoed, fingers gripping her knees in hor ...more

I enjoyed Erica's first book, Too Wicked to Kiss. I'm not a big fan of historicals, but that one was well-written with a hint of paranormal. I was amused by the character, Susan, in that book, so was curious as to how her story would turn out.
I LOVED Susan! Her quirks, expressions, busy-bodyness (is that a word lol?), thought processes. My favorite books tend to be paranormal romantic comedi ...more

Susan has been banished to the countryside after an incident in London. A pampered, slightly spoiled young lady, Susan is accustomed to using her family name to make what she wants happen – unfortunately for her, the family name means noth ...more
And while the story was on the whole an interesting one, there were a few times that I felt it became confusing, as though the author still wasn't certain in what direction she wanted to take things. This wasn't a same Susan that I remembered from Too Wicked ...more

Gothic romances and me have a sort of love/hate relationship, and make no mistake this is definitely a gothic romance. There are more dead bodies in this book then eligible bachelors--and there's about twice as many suspicious characters besides! Susan was quirky, curious and de ...more
First of all, I am not a fan of the paranormal element, but that is not the author’s fault. Unfortunately, I found the main characters Susan and Evan flat, very two-dimensional, whereas some of the secondary characters were so over the top, as to be cartoonish, and the writing w ...more
