Against the glamorous backdrop of Victorian high society, Liz Carlyle paints a dramatic tale of dangerous desire.

All Grace Gauthier ever wanted was the security of a good marriage, a family, and a home. Instead, despised by her aristocratic father’s family because of her mother’s foreign birth, she’s taken a “safe” position as a governess. Now, unprotected and alone in London, accused of the shocking murder of her employer, she has no one to turn to except the mysterious—and possibly dangerous—Lord Ruthveyn.

A dark-eyed Lucifer, Ruthveyn guards his secrets carefully. His shadowed past is a source of pain and rumors. Grace’s plight, which echoes his own, moves him, as does her quiet beauty. Ruthveyn is determined to save Grace by unmasking a killer, but his growing passion places his own heart at risk—and threatens to expose his dark gifts to the world.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Grace’s tenacity, wit, and compassion make her a very believable, multidimensional character and the perfect match for Ruthveyn’s brooding and dark secrets. The romance sizzles, its unpredictability propelling this complex story far beyond its contemporaries.”  

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “With its exceptionally rich characterization, an engaging plot that gracefully pairs danger and desire, and an intriguing touch of the paranormal, Carlyle’s latest stylishly written, lusciously sensual Regency historical romance is supremely satisfying.” 

    Booklist (starred review)

  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " prelim review: While I enjoyed the story and the mystery as to who killed Ethan Holding, the paranormal elements left me feeling jarred, confused and irritated more often than not. Also it sometimes felt as if Carlyle was referencing a previous novel's plot/adventures, but this is meant to be the first in a new trilogy. "

    " I liked a lot of things about this book: the heroine was lively and self-assured, the hero flawed, the ancient mysticism thread added diversity to the storyline, and i didn't see the ending coming from a mile away. Altogether it was a lovely read! I am on a romance kick right too, already halfway through another one. "
