This story takes place in 1821, London.
Angelica Winthrop’s mother threw away her favorite book. If you’re interested, the book actually exists and you can find information at A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. She’s an independent woman during a period in time where most women did not act like Angelica. As I get to know Angelica, I have to wonder what she would think about today’s women.
Our hunky hero’s name is Ian Ashton. He’s the Duke of Burnrath and he’s different from other men. Ian is a man with lots of responsibilities but then he meets Angelica. He also has an archenemy named Ben Flannigan. He’s a character that could have overtaken the storyline but Brooklyn does a great job of having him appear at just the right time.
Angelica and Ian seem to be the perfect couple. But all good romances have roadblocks that pop up for the “happy” couple. These roadblocks keep me turning the page. I need to find out how they handle life’s little challenges. They rise above these challenges and become stronger as a couple. Brooklyn also shows her readers what Angelica and Ian are willing to do for each other.
This is a book that gives you a great regency romance along with a paranormal twist. I also wanted to know if Brooklyn was going to have another book. I went to her web site, http://brooklynann.blogspot.com/, and found that there will indeed be a book two of this series titled One Bite Per Night coming out in November. The only thing I couldn’t find out was who the book was going to be about. So in the meantime, make sure to read Bite Me, Your Grace.
