Publisher's Summary

Betrayed by those she trusted, penniless and alone, Darcie Finch is forced to accept a position no one else dares as assistant to dangerously attractive Dr. Damien Cole. Ignoring the whispered warnings and rumors he's a man to fear, she takes her position at his eerie estate, where she quickly discovers nothing is at it seems, least of all her handsome and brooding employer. As Darcie struggles with her fierce attraction to Damien, she must also deal with the blood, the disappearances...and the murders.   

With her options dwindling and time running out, Darcie must rely on her instincts as she confronts the man with whom she is falling in love. Is he an innocent and misunderstood man...or a remorseless killer who prowls the East End streets?   

Listen to all of Eve's historical romantic suspense series with a Gothic twist! Each audiobook is a stand-alone, and the series can be listened to in any order.

Blah Blah Blah Blah.. Geez..

So this was an okay story. Barely. The dialogue was seriously lacking. Too much inner thoughts the ran on and on and on. At one point I was yelling "get to the point"! ugh.

The story line and plot had potential.But the writing style was not for me. Trying to keep you guessing and guessing and guessing and it became long and tedious. The chemistry between Damien and Darcie just did not feel right. It was forced and and did not feel genuine at all.

This book could have been shortened by about 3 hours had the filler thought nonsense been removed. Seriously, people do speak to each other, just not in this book.

This book was written in the third person but might as well have been written in the first person from Darcie's POV because that was really all you got.

I can' recommend this book at all. I am surprised I even finished it.

As for the narration, It was good. I enjoyed that. Billie Fulford-Brown did a good job. the few voices she read were good. I say that because it was all internal dialogue from Darcie's head. She has a nice reading voice.
