I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
When Phil’s father dies leaving everything to her there is one condition, that she stay there for a full three months. When Phil first arrives she can see that she is very much an unwanted guest, but she is determined to give it a try. Phil quickly finds out that there are secrets within the keep that could change her life and she intends to find out just what they are.
The concept of the story was an interesting one, and I quite enjoyed the gothic setting but I did find the historic elements a little confusing at times. The other thing that I found difficult was the amount of introspection Phil goes through. I think the story would have benefitted from more action and less heartfelt rants. The steamy scenes are well-written; Phil’s lack of experience and knowledge about such things was both amusing and probably quite realistic for the times.
I liked the other characters and would have liked to get to know them better, particularly Jasper, so I hope they get a voice in book two.
