Victoria Huntington thought herself quite adept at fending off fortune hunters...until she came under siege from Lucas Colebrook, the darkly disturbing new Earl of Stonevale. For the earl would use her every weakness to woo her and ultimately wed her. And soon Victoria would find herself ensconced in a crumbling mansion deep in the English country side, where the real reason for her hasty marriage becomes all too apparent - and where the ghosts of her dark-stained past are waiting to rise.

I have always enjoyed reading These Romances because they have a mystery in them. I need that extra intrigue to enjoy them.

Harry Bosh is a favorite of mine. I love the muder mystery that are in all these books. My one complaint is Harry is never happy with his life. Never given a time of romance happiness that is longer then a few days.

Never a doubt. Never a mistake. Always for justice. Never for revenge. She's the person you hire when you need something fixed-permanently. With a strict set of criteria, she evaluates every request and chooses only a few. No more than one job per country, per year. She will only step in if it's clear that justice will not be served any other way. Her jobs are completed with skill and precision, and never result in inquiry or police investigation. The Fixer is invisible - and quite deadly.

It starts a little slow but gets better quick. This is not like most of the cozy genre I have listen to. It was a bit more serious. Didn't have some of the humor I am use to but was very good. And thank you author no explicit sex or guts and blood.
