Once the flames are ignited . . .
Miranda Ellis is a woman tormented. Plagued since birth by a strange and powerful gift, she has spent her entire life struggling to control her exceptional abilities. Yet one innocent but irreversible mistake has left her family's fortune decimated and forced her to wed London's most nefarious nobleman.
They will burn for eternity . . .
Lord Benjamin Archer is no ordinary man. Doomed to hide his disfigured face behind masks, Archer knows it's selfish to take Miranda as his bride. Yet he can't help being drawn to the flame-haired beauty whose touch sparks a passion he hasn't felt in a lifetime. When Archer is accused of a series of gruesome murders, he gives in to the beastly nature he has fought so hard to hide from the world. But the curse that haunts him cannot be denied. Now, to save his soul, Miranda will enter a world of dark magic and darker intrigue. For only she can see the man hiding behind the mask.
What I Thought
I so loved this story.Archer and Miranda were just so good together.
I loved Archer's attitude towards the way London's Society thought of him. He just came and went as he please, but oh how lonely was he. So use to everyone just leaving him once they knew about his curse.
Miranda was lonely too, being a fire starter in all. But she and Archer have this attraction to each other and I just adored how they instantly knew they were meant to be.
Love, love, love this book. He characters were so well written and the stories plot was excellent. Left me wanting more. Thank goodness I'm reading Moonglow. I like this world creating by Kristen Callinghan..very imaginative and addictive. It's very easy to get lost in this series..it is very good.
My only complaints are that there wasn't any background really on how Miranda became a fire started..especially since none of her sisters have abilities. Also the sex scene took way too long to happen, it was like at the end of the book. Oh, there was enough sexual tension and thats fine, but maybe another sex scene wouldn't been so bad..(sorry, I'm a slut..lol)
Remember the TV show Beauty & The Beast...I kept thinking of it while I was reading this one.
