The heroine is as likable as herpes. His part is so boring that I can't warm up for him. It's sexier to not know what happens.

With the scandalous nature of her birth to live down, Isabella Fairmont dreams of a proper marriage—even if a passionless one. She saves her deepest desires for the novel she dares to pen, wherein a handsome lord with dark powers seduces her. But then her courtship with an appropriate suitor is threatened by the sudden attentions of the reclusive Earl of Black… whose pale blue eyes and brooding sensuality are exactly as she described in her book.

It could have been good. It was annoying though, simply because it focused on a book she was writing and not this book. Plus, there is a great deal of people talking about sex, but no one actually having it. Yawn. Also, if she said the word passion again I would have liked to the other 400 times she said it.

Make it this one.

It is the story of love blossoming in a place where no flowers exist and survival in a place where death reigns without challenge.

There were moments that I held my breath, cried or gently tucked my heart away to keep it from breaking. I needn't have bothered; it was broken the moment I opened the book.
