But all rules are made to be broken.

When Grace Denton decides to visit her sister in London, she is shocked to find the paid companion has a new profession and now earns her living as a courtesan. But when her sibling disappears after an evening out, Grace is forced to masquerade as the much sought after paramour in a bid to solve the mystery. Using information from her sister's secret diary, Grace begins her search with the arrogant Lord Markham, convinced he was the last person to see her sister alive.

After being bitten by the golden-haired devil in Bavaria, Elliot Markham has learned how to navigate the world of the ton whilst hiding his terrifying affliction. But when a masked lady accosts him at a ball, posing as the famed courtesan Caroline Rosemond, he is desperate to discover more about the intriguing beauty.

THIS SERIES JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER!

Once again, Ms. Clee writes a dark and hauntingly beautiful love story. Elliot has to come to terms with his need for Grace. Grace has to accept what Elliot is. And together they must travel to where it all started. This book ends with a brilliant cliffhanger and I cannot wait to listen to the next book in the series.

Once again, Ms. Stewart performs a wonderful narration. Her smooth voice is both touching and beautifully intense. It is a job well done.

Read this!

It's official! I'm now a total fan of this genre and am itching to listen to the third book in the series.
Grace, even though she was married once before she met up with Elliot, is a totally innocent young lady who found herself in a loveless marriage and hated every moment of it. Oh, she's had sex with her husband but it was totally the 'lets get it over with...' kind.
Then along comes Elliot and sweeps her off her feet. He is loving and caring and this is so not him that he feels confused and bewildered about the changes he perceives in himself.
There is the mystery to be solved of what has happened to to Caroline, Grace's sister.
I loved the whole concept of a vampire's struggle to not be one, the support and help from close friends, the utter selfishness of a family member and the way the story flowed so effortlessly and kept me engrossed.
Adele Clee has written a most enjoyable page turner and Kylie Stewart has done a remarkable narration of it. These two make a great pair.
At my request I was supplied with a free audiobook by the author and this is my voluntary and unbiased review of it.

Grace and Elliott. A widow and a confirmed rake try romance.

Since Elliott found Grace, he no longer wants liaisons with random court ladies. The attraction between them is growing daily. He feels he can not offer her a lifetime and she must locate her missing sister then return home. Charming and sweet they come to realize they need to be together, but fate throws up roadblocks. Wonderful ending and narrator.

Mediocre

OK but rather trite and without any real pull. As a fairly easy to please listener, I was a little let down by both the utter weakness of the female lead and the milk toast version of an Alfa male.
