Pierce Langdon, Viscount Westfall, spent many years in Bedlam until he was rescued by the Duke of Camden and joined the Order of the Muse. He soon learned that the knock on the head that he received during his childhood didn't actually make him mad, he truly could hear the voices of the people around him. He soon learns how to put a wall up to ignore the voices and how to take it down when necessary. Part of his job as a member of the Order is to help take down individuals trying to hurt the government or its leaders. One such job leads him to Lady Nora Claremont.
Once a respectable lady, Nora has become a lord's mistress in order to survive. She is use to men coming on to her, but the viscount seems different. She soon learns just how different he really is. Even though she has a protector, she can't help but be attracted to Pierce and is soon tangled in his case.
Has Nora finally met the man that will give her the life that she was meant to live, one with a family and respectability?
Before you pick this up, make sure you know that it is a paranormal historical romance. It's not my normal cup of tea, but I have really enjoyed this series.
I was intrigued by Lord Westfall while reading book 1 in the series, The Curse of Lord Stanstead. So much so, that I had to immediately started reading this one after finishing it. I was intrigued by the fact that he could read minds and that he had a very reserved personality. I couldn't wait to meet the woman that he would open up to.
I really liked Nora. She did what she had to do to survive. She was left on her own and woman of that time didn't have many options for survival. She was leary of Pierce when they first met and who can blame her after what she had gone through. After she finally opened herself up to Pierce, she knew she had found the man for her.
Without giving away too much, Pierce did something huge to get Nora her freedom from her protector. major swoon!!
I can't wait to see what happens in the next book in the series!
