Sintesi dell'editore

The earl’s goal was to find his missing sister. The last thing he expected to find was love. 

Having spent two years abroad to avoid his father’s schemes to see him wed, Oliver Darby returns to England to claim his inheritance. As Earl of Stanton and a confirmed bachelor, he expects to settle into a comfortable life. But when he discovers his sister, Rose, is missing and has not been seen for six months, it’s evident his father is capable of manipulating events from beyond the grave.

When Nicole Flint accepted the role of paid companion to Lady Rose Darby, nothing was as it seemed. Whisked away from London to a haunted manor that once housed the insane, the two ladies are kept prisoner, with no hope of reprieve. But when an opportunity arises for one of them to escape, Nicole knows she must be the one to stay. After all, her purpose for working has nothing to do with money and everything to do with the need to hide from her controlling brother.

Thrown together in a wild adventure full of lies and deceit, guilt forces Oliver and Nicole to search for the lost Lady Rose. The overwhelming attraction that exists between them only complicates matters. He’s a man driven by passion and lust. She’s a lady looking for true love. But on their journey of discovery, both must learn that the two are inexplicably entwined.

Features: A Regency historical romance with an emphasis on mystery. This novel contains some descriptive sex scenes.

A captivating story

This was an excellent start to a new series. There were many layers of the mystery that were slowly revealed, along with many twists and turns. It kept me engrossed until the end. The main characters, Oliver and Nicole, had an instant attraction and some very heated moments.
The narrator used different voices to bring the characters to life, not always easy for the male parts, but she deepened her voice accordingly.
I'm looking forward to the next in this series.
I received a copy and I voluntarily reviewed it. This is my honest review.

ANOTHER HIT FOR MS. CLEE

Ms. Clee has seamlessly woven historical romance and mystery into one beautifully written novel. The protagonist of the story, Miss Flint, is a strong woman who stands her ground, yet has a softness that lends herself to romance. Lord Stanton is every woman's dream; rich, intelligent, brave, and honorable. Together, they sizzle. This book ends in a cliffhanger, but it is well worth the time to read. I intend to purchase the entire series, based on the quality of this book.

Ms. Ivary has narrated this book brilliantly. Her character voices are distinctly varied and believable. The emotion she puts into the story made it very real for me. I am looking forward to listening to more from her.

Great Mix of Romance and Mystery

Oliver Darby left London to escape his father's manipulating ways. When the old Earl passed away and Oliver returned to London as the new Earl of Stanton, he discovered his father was capable of controlling events from beyond the grave. Oliver's sister, Rose, was missing, and he knew his father was behind her disappearance.

When Oliver arrived at the place where his sister was held prisoner, he found Rose gone and a companion, Nicole, in her place. Oliver and Nicole set out to search for Rose, but matters were complicated by a stolen identity, spurned lovers, a savage relative, and their undeniable attraction to each other.

This was a great mix of romance and mystery! It's the first in the series, and was all about Oliver and Nicole. Rose's story is continued in the sequel. It's a steamy read with a set of main characters that can't keep their hands off each other. It had a suspenseful plot and kept me hooked through the entire listen.

I love a strong willed and intelligent heroine, and Nicole was both. She kept a level head and usually came up with the plans. I loved that Oliver recognized her intelligence and never argued with her for the sake of having his way. He respected her and it showed in their every interaction. I loved their dialogue and the way they teased each other. They really had great chemistry.

The narration was done well, she performed different voices for each character and read dramatically. It was a great performance, especially her voices for Oliver and Nicole. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

I Recommend this Book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was very well read, it was easy to follow and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.

Which character – as performed by Liisa Ivary – was your favorite?

I liked the breathless voice of Nicole and the harder 'male' voice of Oliver. They worked well together.

Any additional comments?

This was the first time I had listened to an audio book, it was very different from reading, of course. I did enjoy that I could work while having the book read to me, my mind didn't wonder the way I thought it might. But I have to admit, I do prefer reading myself.

A brilliant start to the series.

My favourite genre is historical mystery romance. The Mysterious Miss Flint fits the bill perfectly. There's plenty of suspense, a few twists and a good mystery for Oliver and Nicole to solve whilst falling in love with one another. I loved the Gothic feel to the beginning of the novel where Rose and Nicole were kept under lock and key in a former asylum in the countryside. It was quite an exciting start to the story.

Oliver and Nicole made an adorable couple. I loved how much care Oliver took of Nicole and how he always took her side in any argument involving her. The ending of the story left me wanting more. I am especially intrigued about Rose and I can't wait to find out what happens next. I'm also hoping to see more from Oliver and Nicole as well.

A very entertaining book. I will definitely want to read the rest of the series.
