    Camden Rutledge has always been the most dependable and stable m

    Camden Rutledge has always been the most dependable and stable member of his family. His father, Randolph Rutledge, the Earl of Treyhem, is always up for a good time and never worries about money or his family. Cam is the consistent one, who worries about everything. Cam and Helene Middleton grew up together and fell in love, but her mom slept with the Earl and screwed up everything. Cam must married for money and not love, so he leaves his heart with Helene. Cassandra, his wife, made his life a living HADES with her yelling and infidelities. The one good thing come from it, his daughter, Ariane!

    Helene Middleton grew up by Chalcote Court and with the Rutledge family. Helene fell madly in love with Cam, but their love could never be because he had to marry for money. She was crashed and devastated and flees to France. While she is there, she reinvents herself and studies the workings of the human mind and works with doctors to help traumatized children come out to their cold, scary and frightening worlds.

    Cam's father is found dead with Ariane's governess, so now he is the Earl of Treyhem, must bury his father and find a suitable, stable and skilled governess for his daughter. Now Helene de Severs is back in England and needs money. She accepts a position as a governess to a little girl who stopped talking, but is healthy. Both Cam and Helene's worlds collide at Chalcote Court and the longing and attraction is still there. Slowly Helene earns Ariane's trust and she begins to crawl out of her quiet world, but the mystery of the fire and Cassandra's suicide become unraveled. This couple have a little help from Cam's brother Bentley Rutledge, a fat and stubborn kitty, courting galore, passionate kisses and their combined lust to rekindle their love. Can these two stay out each others arms and hearts? Can Helene open her her heart to Cam again? Will Cam learn that he NEEDS Helene for himself and his sanity? Will Ariane heal and talk again? Will the mystery destroy them all?

    I was reading Three Little Secrets and came across Helene and Ca

    I was reading Three Little Secrets and came across Helene and Camden which made me want to know their story also. I was not disappointed. Love that Camden was stoic except with Helene and Helene was his one true love. This story made me want to know more about Camden's brother Bentley so I plan to read his next. Love Liz Carlyle's writing - she keeps you reading.

    ALWAYS A GOOD READ FROM CARLYLE

    I thought this book was good years ago when i read it. It is a reissue and needs to be stated so. If you haven't read it do--it is the story of the matriarch (helene) from the later books.

    Excellent historical romance

    Viscount Treyhorn, Grayson Rutledge, knows it will take a lifetime or more to overcome his now deceased father's wicked ways. Even in death, Grayson's sire managed to cause a scandal after being found with the governess. Still, Grayson's biggest concern is the well being of his six-year old daughter, Ariane, suffering from the trauma of her mother's death. She is now unable to speak. To that end, he has hired Helene de Severs, who has had great success helping children heal through her expertise in psychiatrics. <P>When Helene arrives at Grayson's estate, he is shocked to realize she is Helene Middleton, his first and perhaps only true love. As Grayson and Helene work closely trying to reach Ariane, their once youthful feelings blossoms into a deep and enduring adult love for one another. However, not only does their love jeopardize their attempts to assist Ariane, someone dangerous lurks in the shadows willing to insure that nothing come of this budding relationship. <P> BEAUTY LIKE THE NIGHT is an enchanting Victorian romance that will enrapture fans of the sub-genre. The story line provides readers with insight into the nineteenth century, notably the rise of the new sciences such as psychiatrics. Grayson is a heroic person struggling to do what is best for his family, especially his beloved child, even as he falls in love. Helene is an intrepid person confronting her love for Grayson vs. Ariane's needs. Although the subplot of external danger is not needed to further this strong historical romance, the audience will recognize that Liz Carlyle has written a stimulating story worth reading. <P>Harriet Klausner
