I have been super behind on writing reviews for anything. I start to write and then end up closing the notepad because I am annoyed lol.
Recomended I really enjoyed this book a lot. It took me a couple of days to get into it, but once I did I was hooked. I haven't read/listened to a book in awhile that was not from a first person perspective, so it was a bit odd for me. This story is about Miranda, a girl with a fiery gift, but honestly that isn’t the focus of this book. Miranda is promised to Lord Archer, a mysterious masked man. She marries him knowing she can’t see his face fully. The story is a love story tinged with a bit of mystery murder. I loved the setting of the book; it takes place in early London. Once Miranda marries Lord Archer, she peels him back layer by layer and falls unexpectedly in love. The characters are very well written and like I said, I love the setting. I can’t say historically accurate the book is, but I enjoyed the subtle old-timey nuances. You will love the sexual tension in this book. It is amazing. Callihan is seriously a master of this. I was like OH MY GOD COME ON sometimes. I really wanted to read the next in the series, but once I learned it wasn’t about the same characters as this book, I wasn’t interested. I honestly hate that. I don’t know if I will read the next book, but I certainly enjoyed this one.
