I love her books and have all but her first books. It was also nice to see the characters getting to know more of themselves and what they are capable of throughout their adventures. That changes the moment she watches Argus-the most tantalizing man she's ever seen-disappear before her very eyes. As if you were reading about an alternative reality of historical England. All in all, this is one of my favorite Hannah Howell books, and I can't wait to see where the series goes from here.
Maybe because I am the one of the few readers hoe truly pay attention to details. After Lady Catryn de Warren arrives home to discover her son kidnapped and her father bruised and battered, she immediately sets out to rescue her boy! Just a good fun read, every one of them. So, I would say that this book could easily stand alone if anyone was interested in reading it prior to the others. It had elements of suspense, ingenuity and triumph. It wasn't horribly written, it was boring and not so well written. No effort was made to prepare a story line before the book was written.
While each step in their bold scheme works to perfection, the sins of the past could unravel a growing desire that neither Olympia or Brant can control. Catrin has heard the rumors about Sir Orion Wherlocke's family and their otherworldly gifts. She then steals a carriage standing ready outside a home. I sincerely hope this series is not at an end. She borrows a coach belonging to the very gifted Orion Wherlocke who follows her.
As the story progresses deeper darker mysteries are unravelled, involving sibling rivalries and a renegade Wherlocke cousin. Two such strong forces are bound to ignite strong passions when they meet, like colliding stars they are incandescent.

This was a good book. I adore the Wherlock series.
The whole family apparently has different powers - all different but powerful. Lady Catryn will do anything to save her son. I thought she was great. Catrin has a passenger inside the carriage and it's a little boy. Sir Orion Wherlocke can't believe that someone stole his carriage which happened to have his son in it. A few interesting love scenes, a few mad races, and a few interesting talents and the return of Alwyn unite the two families. Orion is capable, slightly detached and ruthless when necessary, especially where his family is involved.
Orion was fun - I loved how he would try get her fired up so he could enjoy her red-headed temper! Hannah Howell is a talented and wonderful author, who never lets us down with her tales of these two families! Though to be fair, he was inside his mansion at the time contemplating another sort of pursuit, of the charming widow variety. Giles father Orion is not pleased. She and her late husband had an odd relationship. If this book is any indication, this is quite a captivating series. The second from this series I have read — these stories stand on their own without difficulty, and are a fun and engaging read from start to finish. Hannah Howell has done it again with adventure, mystery, and of course romance. Then Cate has to do the same thing.
Enough background is given to understand the quirks of the Wherlockes and Vaughns. It is for those who are interested in concepts like foresight, destiny and how the future works. All in all a good read and follows the series. Sir Orion is from a family with a history with different gifts. Is he willing to do that for a once in a lifetime love? Overall, I thought they were a sweet couple. Argus was frustrating in that he kept insisting marriage in his family was cursed and therefore he could never marry Lorelei.
I thought the story moved along at a good pace and the writing was excellent. She learns to accept what her son deals with. There is always a real life drama to be found in her stories, some learning lesson we can walk away with but her sense of family or clan. Lady Catryn was crafted beautifully, with strength, passion and loving protectiveness towards her son Alwyn. Orion on the other hand has had his share of women who are just a sexual release with no stings attached.
I was not expecting the paranormal element since I had not read any of this series before but I really like it. I do hope she bundles both series when she ends them. Since his betrothed died, Lord Brant Mallam has drowned his sorrow with wine and women. Orion is facing the worst danger a man of his ilk can find: a woman he can't walk away from. She also writes under the names Sarah Dustin, Sandra Dustin, and Anna Jennet. Readers are drawn into the intricate world that she has crafted.
