A shocking betrayal… Riches. Power. An ancient heritage of pride. The Earl of Druridge wanted only for an heir. So when he learned that his wife was carrying another man’s child, he was filled with a thirst for vengeance. But he wasn’t the one who caused Katherine’s death. Or was he? To his horror, he remembers nothing of that dreadful night, when their last shocking confrontation ended in scorching flame and cold blood. A forbidden love… Rachel McTavish, the beautiful daughter of a coal miner, knows something about the fire that took Lady Katherine’s life. In secret, the strong-willed girl strikes a bargain with the desperate earl: he must send his physician to help her dying mother or he may go to the scaffold—and the devil. The earl agrees, but Rachel is still unsure that her revelation will be enough to save him when so many wish him dead. Passionately drawn to the nobleman, despite all the doubt and mystery that shrouds him, Rachel wonders if he can really be a murderer. Or if he is the only man who will ever own her heart…

0.5 I'm not on a good reading phase...

3.5 A pretty awesome Historical Romance... totally worth it
It took me a long time to decide on a rating for this book. I wanted to give it a 5 and a 4 and a 3, which made choosing the closest ‘half’ star a whole lot harder. My friends who read this book absolutely loved it and while I had a great time reading it, it just didn’t enchant me. I think tha...

4.0 Through the Smoke by Brenda Novak
Overall I really enjoyed reading this one. I loved the writing, or the authors voice. To me it had a bit of a gothic feel to it, the hero also felt gothic. In a way that he was a bit grumpier and darker. But very gentle with the heroine, even if he didn't initially put a lot of thought to how it wou...

5.0 Review: Through the Smoke by Brenda Novak
"Through the Smoke" is the very first book by Brenda Novak I've ever read and I am quite certain this will not be my last read from her. This wonderful story struck me well in so many ways for its dark tone, Gothic texture, romantic relationship between the two leads, and overarching mystery/suspen...

2.5 I need to have my name carved on my spot at the "Downer's Bench" since I'm in it so much
Sometimes, I feel like I expect too much out of books. Like this one, it had everything I could have possibly liked but the execution of the story as a whole wasn't really to my liking. I was expecting a Gothic romantic storyline but somewhere along the way all I got was a whole lot of fretting and ...
