This is such a great story. I am loving this series. Fantastic characters. The hero and heroine, Hartley and Alethea were wonderful together, great chemistry. Not forced or fake. Some nicely written sex scenes.
The dialogue throughout the book is fantastic, witty, funny and flows so nicely. The plot and story line is great. I love these Wherelocks and Vaughns with their gifts.
Always something going on, not a dull moment. And the villains are truly villains.
The narration is just great (even better on 1.25 speed). All the characters have their own distinct voices and the men sound like men. Could use a little more emotion with her character reading, but she is still very good.
I totally recommend this whole series. Fast paced stories, all of them.
I am going to move on to book 4 now and am already excited!
I got this as a free read with my Kindle Unlimited subscription and 2.99 for the narration. Great deal for sure!
Enjoyed the story. Yes, the Wherlockes and the Vaughns are eccentric, but they are far more. This series highlights the unconditional love within an extended family. New family members (spouses, step- and adopted children) receive the same love and support as if blood. Every story in the series has been different except for this element. That is a welcome similarity.
I think this was my favorite, by just a little. I absolutely loved Hartley and Alethea.
The secondary were just awesome: Argus, Olympia, Aldus, Iago, Gifford, Germaine and Bayard.
Claudette and Margarite were truly something else. What a murderous pair of siblings.
The sex in this book was very well written and I can't wait to read the next one in this series.
As to the narrator: She is just awesome. She gives the men such sexy voices. I would never get tired of listening to Ms. McNab.
Love historical and paranormal romances with smart, imperfect people who against the odds find love when they are not looking for it.
Entertaining and enjoyable! A unique romance with a touch of paranormal. The story starts from the very beginning, no lag in the first few chapters and it continues to build. Strong supporting characters but Howell never looses focus of the main characters and main story line. She is not predictable! Wonderful narration. This one is a treat and I am so glad there are more to follow.
