When Lorelei Sundun first finds Sir Argus Wherlocke in her garden, she's never heard of the mysterious Wherlocke clan - or their other worldly abilities. That changes the moment she watches Argus - the most tantalizing man she's ever seen disappear before her very eyes. What she's witnessed should be impossible. But so should falling in love with a man she's only just met....
Pursued by a madman intent on harnessing the Wherlockes' talents as weapons, Argus meant to seek help from his family, not to involve a duke's lovely daughter in the struggle. But now, the enchanting Lorelei is his only hope for salvation - and the greatest temptation he's ever faced....

Ahh.. 2- one and two stars reviews and 56 four and five star reviews. Go figure..
I loved this book, as well as the other 3 that I read in this series, and will now move on to the 5th one.
I find the Wherlocke's and Vaughn's a fascinating family.
Loved Argus, and how he met Lorelie. Loved how she went looking for him and saved him from Charles.
AND Charles and his two minions got exactly what they deserved.
Loved his son's Olwen and Daries. Always love seeing Olympia and Iago.
And I adored Lorelie's father, Roland and the butler, Max.
A great read filled with murder, mischief, and mayhem.
With awesome sexual tension and sex that was very well written.
As to the narrator: Simply awesome! Ms. McNab could stand to read a little more emotion in her books but as long as the men sound like men, I'm good. Nothing worse than two people making love and having them BOTH sound just like the male or female narrator, no difference in their voices whatsoever. Gotta have men and women's voices in a book or it's not worth listening to. IMO..
Sir Argus needs someone strong to save him and our heroine is very strong and stubborn, this story is amazing and I not only love the writing, as Hannah Howell is brilliant but I love the way Ashford MacNab narrates, this is a series that I will listen to over and over again and It makes me anxious for the next in the series.
This is not my favorite that's for sure. The first 3 books I gave 5 stars, this one barely made 3 stars. It was somewhat boring and uneventful in comparison to the previous books in this series.
The hero is not so much a hero, he is pretty blah. The heroine I do like very much. I also like her back story and her family, including her butler, Max! She was strong, smart and witty.
There is lots of dialogue throughout the book which is great, I do like lots of dialogue. There is sex so this is not a rated G book.
The story line and plot were a good concept, and it started out real good, but then the story just got lost and there seemed to be too much filler nonsense. The opposite of the previous books. They were full of anticipation and never a dull moment, whereas this book I had to skim pages to get to something happening. Just meh...
I will of course still read the next book and hope the author just had some writer's block with this story. I am looking forward to Lady Olympia's book.
As for the narrator, she is good. The men sound like men, the ladies sound like ladies and she does give most everyone their own distinct voice.
Love historical and paranormal romances with smart, imperfect people who against the odds find love when they are not looking for it.
What a wonderful mix of historical romance and paranormal romance. The characters are real, likeable and consistent in each book. The narrator is perfect because you can get lost in the story and feel as if you are there. Start with book one and enjoy a continual love story complete with sensuality and mystery, with villains and heroes, some giggles, some tragedy and a family full of special gifts thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!
