"Regency London – a dizzying whirl of balls and young ladies pursued by charming men.

But the Woodmore sisters are hunted by a more sinister breed: Lucifer's own.

Voss, also known as Viscount Dewhurst, relishes the sensual pleasures immortality affords. A member the Dracule – a cabal of powerful, secretive noblemen marked with a talisman that reveals their bartered souls – the mercenary Voss has remained carefully neutral ... until Angelica.

 My Thoughts

This is the first book I've read by Colleen Gleason. I'm rather torn on whether or not I liked this book.

I did like the writing, most of the characters, and the setting. Colleen Gleason paid attention to detail and I appreciate that. I like Angelica, but I don't like Voss, not even a little bit. He was cocky, selfish, annoying.. and what I don't get is, if he was so attracted to Angelica  why he was still having sex with other women! I can't see why Angelica was attracted to him at all.

But... I still enjoyed it and I can't really explain why lol (I'm horrible at blogging!) but I liked it in the end and will be reading the sequels in the trilogy.

My Rating

This counts as book 12 for:

and 2 for:
