Alyce Hythe has always believed in her father’s innocence but being hidden away has prevented her from finding the truth. When mysterious occurrences begin that threaten Alyce’s life she finds herself removed from hiding and once again back in the society that has shunned her. A chance encounter with Lord Julian Casvelyn leads the pair on a journey of discovery and love but when the threats to Alyce’s life increase they must race against time to find who is behind it.
There are many twists and turns with this story that keep it exciting but also can become a little confusing. The plot is interesting and intriguing with secrets, lies and deception at every turn. I liked the connection that Alyce had with Julian but also with Charles. The loyalty she has to her friend and his happiness very nearly prevents her own happiness but, as with every good romance, it all worked out in the end.
An enjoyable historical romance with elements of paranormal and mystery.
