I recently got the chance to read an arc of this book and I must say that I've enjoyed it immensely. Virginia Lee pens such an enticing, heart-wrenching tale that it's hard to put the book down once you've started reading it.

At the beginning, I didn't like Simon Montieth that much when he decided to try and have his way with Lady Leigha Clairemont. At times, I wanted to reach into the book and tug on his hair to make him see reason. Yet I am glad that he was not the cold, heartless man that he s

This was a fantastic read! It starts of with a bang and does't ever stop. I was hesitant about taking on a book this long, but I quickly realized I was flying through it because it flowed so well. I also enjoyed learning all about the Jackobite Revolution in such detail. Very few authors write about this time period and I want to give Kudos to Mrs. Lee for bringing it to life. The Heroine was likable and I enjoyed her interaction between her and her suitors. I also assume Mrs. Lee has spent some ...more

I read this book on the recommendation of a friend and I must say I am pleased that I did. From the very first page you are drawn in to the spirit of the heroin Leigha Claremont.

The first chapter had me shooshing my husband as not to interrupt my joy and from then on it was all I could do to not put this book down. I started reading it while on vacation in Las Vegas and was hard pressed to join my husband and friends in their fun because all I could think about was how my new favorite heroin wou

Dagon's Blood grabs hold of you and never lets go. After reading this book i remembered why I loved romance.
Set in the mid 1700's during the conflict of Scotland and England,the lovely Lady Leigha and her three virile suitors take you on a historical journey of tragedy and triumph.
Virginia Lee writes with such emotion and paints extraordinary pictures. I could tell by her descriptions that she knew her history and she applied it to her story with a flourish.
I was left glowing when i finished rea
