    Following the accident, Eleanor 'Nell' Anslowe is haunted by nightmares of torture and murder in a dungeon with a shadowy figure nearby. Almost thirty, but sill on the shelf, she flees a libertine after her wealth and inadvertently meets an earl Julian Weston, who is chasing after his inane stepsister. Neither has plans to marry, but caught together, they do and surprisingly fall in love. In 1804, the bliss ends when the nightmares return with one frightening change the shadowy man seems to be staring at her. She tells Julian about her bad dreams and he believes that what she sees is real and that a vicious serial killer knows Nell is coming closer to identifying him making her the next target by they both assume someone they know and probably trust with their lives. --- This is a terrific psychological Regency romantic suspense that grips the audience from the first nightmare to the last dream. The story line is fast-paced as Nell and Julian use their love for one another to help them face an unknown killer haunting her sleep. Shirlee Busbee provides a great tale that will have cross genre appeal to historical mystery and Regency romance readers. --- Harriet Klausner

    When I began this book, I really wasn't sure what I would think

    When I began this book, I really wasn't sure what I would think of it. I love historical romances, but judging from the cover, I was concerned that it may have a lot of steamy sex scenes. I don't mind those scenes as long as they are within the confines of marriage. I know I'm old-fashioned, but that is just me.

    I was instantly enthralled with the book. I loved Nell--I always love strong females, especially from bygone eras. And I also love books that take place in England. Both were true of this book. I was so glad that nothing happened between Nell and Julian until they were married. I also enjoyed the way in which the love and passion grew between them.

    The story was basically a standard historical romance formula, but the author did insert a bit of a mystery. And this really made the story intriguing. I was pleased to have nearly figured out the mystery, and it certainly made me hungry for more. I was pleased to realize there are two sequels to this book (at least), and I plan to put those on my to-read list.

    In conclusion, if you like a good historical romance with a bit of intrigue, I think you would like this book. The intimate scenes were steamy but not too steamy. And there was thankfully very minimal profanity--nothing too bad, which was nice.

    Oh My Gosh!!!!!

    I absolutly loved this book!!! The characters are all wonderful and the way they were written, you can see them clearly in your minds eye. This book is an extremely fast read~ it had me hooked on the first page. I loved the mystery & trying to figure out who the shadow figure was, but towards the end, it became a process of elimination. I would love for the author to write a book and find a love for Charles & Marcus.

    Great read I loved the mysterious story. You have well developed

    Great read I loved the mysterious story. You have well developed characters and a murder mystery that goes hand in hand with a great romance. I didn't guess the real killer till very late in the story. Well done and worth reading!

    Backstory: On the eve of her wedding, 10 years ago, Nell Anslowe suffers a fall over a cliff and fortuitously lands on a ledge. Nevertheless, her groom begs off.

    After regaining consciousness (hours/days) she has memory loss of how it happened and is left with a limp and recurring terrifying nightmares of butchery killings. Still unmarried when the novel takes up the story, the wealthy Nell is kidnapped during a storm by a scoundrel she won't marry, but who is in dire need of money. Feisty Nell manages to escape. Coincidentally Julian, Earl of Wyndham - and enemy of the kidnapper - loses his horse during the storm. Both of them wind up in the same shelter; she is compromised and Julian asks for her hand. These mildly interesting central characters marry and fall in love. But Nell's dreams become progressively graphic, real, and bestial, and she is determined to track down the murderer. The villain who is somehow psychically connected to Nell, manages to escape at the end. Does this mean we can expect a sequel?

    Great Book by Shirlee Busbee!

    Wonderful! I read the Spanish Rose years ago, ( I think that was the title!) and I loved it. This one was just as great and I can't wait to read the other 2 following books!!!

    Predictable

    Busbee is a fine writer and her descriptions and characters are well developed. But the serial killer in this is predictable as is his accomplice. The heroine is irritating when she's obsessed with her husband's love...it got tiresome. For continually saying how brave she was, I didn't find her so strong, even for a period piece. It isn't until the end where some fire is actually present in her so I suppose the potential is finally met.
    I never felt real passion between the couple...not that it needed steamier scenes. It just seemed the author was more interested in the paranormal activity and the "mystery" of the killer.
    Oh, and there's the typical twin birth which is so overdone. It seems nearly every romance novel has the couple's future with multiples...in a time where it was unusual and dangerous.
