Once the seeds of desire are sown . . .
Finally free of her suffocating marriage, widow Daisy Ellis Craigmore is ready to embrace the pleasures of life that have long been denied her. Yet her new-found freedom is short lived. A string of unexplained murders has brought danger to Daisy's door, forcing her to turn to the most unlikely of saviors . . .
Their growing passion knows no bounds . . .
Ian Ranulf, the Marquis of Northrup, has spent lifetimes hiding his primal nature from London society. But now a vicious killer threatens to expose his secrets. Ian must step out of the shadows and protect the beautiful, fearless Daisy, who awakens in him desires he thought long dead. As their quest to unmask the villain draws them closer together, Daisy has no choice but to reveal her own startling secret, and Ian must face the undeniable truth: Losing his heart to Daisy may be the only way to save his soul.
I liked this story, but didn't love it. I thought Daisy and Ian had great chemistry together and they were funny as all hell. And I also enjoyed the easy banter between them.
Daisy was strong, but innocent at the same time. I enjoyed her character a lot...she was ballsy and wasn't afraid to speak her mind. She was a little afraid when it came to intimacy because the way her now dead husband treated her.
Ian was the perfect tortured hero. So reluctant to be head if his clan because he wanted to be human...to live a normal life. After watching those he care for die and loosing his son, he's afraid of loving someone else and then loosing them too.
All of this made for a good story and it was, it was just too long; which in turn caused the story to drag. At least we now know that all of the Sisters are supernaturals...Elementals and their powers were inherited from their mother.
Let's see what is going to happen with Poppy, the eldest sister...should be interesting.
