My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was given this copy in exchange of an honest review.
Be warned review contains spoilers, you may proceed with caution.
Lady Annabelle Marchant has the ability to sense spirits, she also gets visions of things after they have occurred.
Lady Terrance a widow only 6 months in mourning, has invited Belle, the granddaughter of a dear friend of hers, to her home to help hunt the spirit that is haunting it. Only thing is she isn't permitted to speak of it. No talk of ghosts or spirits are to be allowed.
Lord Terrance (Rufus), or "Lord Terror" as the villagers call him has made her promise not too. The only way she has been allowed to stay as his mothers guest.
Rufus himself is home for a reason to solve his fathers murder and clear his name from being the suspect. He has been given this chance before the case is sent to London.
All the while both Rufus and Belle are falling in love with the other. He keeps on confronting her about her real reasons for being at his home and telling her that she could fine a husband if she would just drop the whole silly notion of being able sense spirits. To which she replies that she has no desire to be with anyone, yet every time they touch, be it in passing or embraced in a kiss sparks rush through her body.
I found this book to be fantastic. The attraction and banter between Belle and Rufus alone is enough to make this book great. But on top of that we have a murder to solve, and a ghost to hunt.
The whole time writing this review I was flopping back and forth 4 or 5, 4 or 5. So in the end I will settle it by going with 4.5 stars.
