    Townsfolk called him the devil. For dark and enigmatic Julian, Earl of Ravenwood, was a man with a legendary temper and a first wife whose mysterious death would not be forgotten. Now country-bred Sophy Dorring was about to become Ravenwood's new bride. Drawn to the glitters of desire that burned in his emerald eyes, Sophy had her own reasons for agreeing to a marriage of convenience. One was vengeance, and in it's pursuit she would entangle Julian in a dangerous masquerade.

    Overall

    It started with the usual formula of the nobleman marrying ,for whatever reason. He wanted the heir and no trouble and she wanted love and equality. Underlying, the trappings of the story was an honest discussion of a women's status in these type of marriages. Each character debated (or though very heated arguments)
    the male and female perspective. Julian had the preceived notions on marriage
    for the times. Sophy was more progressive. The only difference between a
    mistress and a wife, was the later had a retirement plan. Julian's aunt and her female companion had a deep, loving and understanding friendship. The author
    questioned the ability of a married man and woman capable of achieving the same . Julian character did develope into a loving and understanding husband, due to Sophy's sheer will. I appreciated the authors attempt to discuss marriage and the role of woman during that time but, being very entertaining in the process.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."
    "Great adventure , atrocious british accent"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed Cat's character. She was misguided by her mother. But,
    she was wise enough to learn and be loved by the wonderful and sexy Bones. She was fiesty, vulnerable and a refreshing joy. Bones is 200 plus years old vampire , intellectual enough not only to survive , but develope a sense of morality. Regarding the accent comment, people do drop accents over time. Bones was a beautiful character and the narrator gave him an annoying and distracting accent. I barely made it the last chapter. This was a
    4 Star book. The narrator did a good with the other characters. Minus one for someone's poor judgement.
