He caught her expression and his smile grew fiendish.
“Don’t go getting calf-eyed on me,” he warned with amusement. “Or I’ll start to believe that you like me, too.”
Gently, he threaded his hand through her curls, spreading them about her. “We are all imperfect creatures, love. I don’t want perfect. I just want you.”
I LOVED this book!
Finally Daisy Ellis has obtained freedom with the death of her husband. Her husband whom I wish I could bring back from the dead so that I could kill him myself. Daisy is sassy, very sensual and has so many scars from her awful suffocating marriage. But her freedom is short lived when she seems to be the target of a vicious supernatural killer who is responsible for a slew of unexplained murders.
Ian Ranulf has hidden his animal nature from London society. He portrays an image of an uncaring and wicked Lord, hiding his heartache and loneliness. But then he is forced to come to Daisy’s aid, as he is the only one who can stop the villain before his secrets are exposed. What he did not plan on was his intense desire for the beautiful and brave Daisy. Will fate be cruel to him again, or has he finally met the woman meant to be his for eternity…
“I would be a god with the power of your love. If I knew that I had it.”
He touched her cheek. “But I cannot do it alone. I cannot bow and scrape for each scrap, hoping you’ll see what I see in us. I won’t have you by default.” A small smile lifted his mouth. “Ah, but if you gave it to me freely, I swear on my soul I wouldn’t let it go to waste. With everything I am, I’d give it back to you in return. I’d keep ye, love ye till my last breath, lass.”
I adored the romance, and I especially loved Ian. He’s such a wickedly sexy and charming guy. And his Scottish brogue just made me melt ♥. He has such a heartbreaking past, and I so rooted for him to finally get his HEA. The romance was a slow but very intense burn, and once these two got together, just wow! I especially loved how Ian showed Daisy that she was perfect for him.
The plot was really interesting, and I really enjoyed learning more of this world, and all the varied creatures that inhabit it. This book also paved the way for the next book which is about Daisy’s sister, Poppy, and her husband Win. And I cannot wait to read their story.
I really love this series. A historical romance where there are demons, shifters, lycans, GIMs, elementals and so many more supernaturals. I highly recommend this series!
I know who the true monsters are. They are ordinary men who do terrible things.”
“What do you know of monsters, Daisy-Meg?” Who was it that terrorized her?
She looked at him with eyes wide and pained, and the very air seemed to still about him. “Enough to know that you are not one of them.”
”There are days when I look in the mirror and don’t even recognize myself. I’ve become merely shapes and colors. In truth, I hardly know who I am anymore, or if I was ever anyone at all.”
I know who you are, he wanted to shout. You are brave, funny. Fresh air in this smothered town. And utterly blind if you cannot see what I am. Ian owed it to her to make it clear. “Then I envy you,” he said. “For I’ve had lifetimes to learn each line and plane of my face, and I can’t stand the sight of it.
