Overview

HE PROMISES TO CHARM YOU.

In the quiet hamlet of Yorkshire, the hallowed halls of Burndale School stand … and evil lurks in its dark corners. For a serial killer with a proclivity for blonde women has struck again-this time, murdering two of its teachers. Now everyone is wondering when the killer will seek his next victim.

SEDUCE YOU.

Elizabeth Canham has accepted a teaching position at the local boarding school in Yorkshire. But her quiet life takes a surprising turn when she meets Griffin Fairfax-the handsome father of one of her pupils. His mesmerizing stare quickly draws her in, and she can't deny the fierce attraction between them.

AND THEN KILL YOU.

Griffin Fairfax appears to be a doting father and gentleman. But one disturbing truth lies at the heart of the murders-all of the victims were intimately connected to him. When Elizabeth discovers this, she wonders if it's a mere coincidence or if Griffin could be a charming, seductive killer so many women have lost their hearts-and lives-to.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Unaware that two teachers at Burndale Academy have been brutally murdered by someone with a fetish for blondes, fair-haired Beth Canham takes a post at the remote northern Yorkshire school and soon finds herself stalked by the same killer. Although brooding, atmospheric, and overflowing with classic Gothic elements, this suspenseful, emotionally driven tale is more than just a nostalgic trip back to the Sixties. A multifaceted plot, well-timed backstory clues, and steamy passion add sparkling currency to this intricately crafted story that fans of the nonparanormal Gothic are sure to appreciate. Silver (Demon's Kiss), who also writes as Eve Kenin, lives in Canada.

    Hauntingly Beautiful Gothic Romance

    It's been a long time since I've picked up a Gothic and with the paranormal load I've been hefting lately, it was a refreshing read, yet not too off the dark and deadly path from said paranormals. In that I mean the ill wind/foreboding tone that unfurls from the moment this book starts. It was great! This author knows how to set an eerie mood and keep a reader in suspense. And bonus, it came with some of the most hauntingly beautiful prose I've read in a while too. ***** In Yorkshire, at the Burndale school for young girls, residents are menaced by an unseen evil, one that sets its sights on the pretty teachers there. A series of murders has haunted them and it's this unwelcoming atmosphere that heralds Elizabeth Canham's arrival. Set to take a teaching position herself, she feels the not-quite-right air about the school. More importantly, she endeavors to contain the memories it rouses, of a time of pain and fear. Even as she struggles to control the ghosts of her past, they're coming to life again, right before her very eyes. ***** Griffin Fairfax can't help but be fascinated by the woman that is somehow able to get through to his troubled daughter. Elizabeth has no doubt been through something terrible herself, yet he admires her quiet fortitude and haunted strength. When more murders crop up, his disreputable younger days come back to haunt him. He can see the new young miss is wary of him, as she should be. For Griffin is a terrible man, capable of dire things and culpable in so many ways. The most terrible of all, that for which he can never forgive himself has even torn a chasm between him and his daughter. There's something in her new teacher though, something that gives him hope...and a desire he cannot deny. ***** His Wicked Sins drew me right in from the very first page, as we travel with Elizabeth, or Beth as she's called for most of the book, on her way to her new life as a teacher. Beth has within herself an innate sense of self, though it is somewhat buried too beneath those memories that haunt her. It's almost as if we're getting to watch that sense of self unfold and blossom into a spirited and strong young woman. Her past has made her observant and careful, instilled within her traits that will actually save her in the long run. It wasn't hard at all for me to admire her for her compassion with Griffin's daughter, Isobel, or for her determination to make her own opinions about him rather than relying on rumor. His was a woman I could very well see all the things within that Griffin does. ***** Griffin himself is not without his secrets and silent self-condemnations. In fact, I loved and loved how he's drawn out as this unapologetically depraved man, seemingly capable of horrible misdeeds and travesties. Granted, a lot of the rumors about him are encouraged by his mocking silence whenever the subject is brought up, but Griffin's reasons aren't without merit he truly feels responsible for the very things these rumors accuse him of. Throw in the strained relationship with his daughter and the man is someone I felt immense sympathy for, yet at the same time wondering if I was sympathizing with a murderer. I simply did not know and loved the on my toes reading this book had me in. ***** When together, he and Beth make for a scorching pair. There's some really excellent sexual tension in this book, and Griffin's shadowed exterior only adds to it: ***** 'With actions instinctive and swift, he drew her wrist up, breathed deep. She gasped and twitched but did not pull away. Pressing his mouth to the soft skin on the inside, he ran his tongue along the crease, tasting her. So sweet. Christ, so sweet. She froze, trembling in her place. He could feel the pulse at her wrist, pounding wildly. 'Mr. Fairfax,' she whispered. 'You overstep the bounds of polite company.' Without raising his head, he cut her a glance through his lashes and swirled his tongue over her skin, a luscious taste of her, before offerin

    A great romance

    In 1828 Yorkshire, impoverished Elizabeth ¿Beth¿ Canham arrives at a remote site awaiting the coach to take her to Burndale Academy where she is the new teacher. Griffin Fairfax offers her a ride although he admits he is not from the academy. She accepts. In front of Beth at the academy he asks a servant if she (not the servant) will come to him the servant says she refused. Upset he leaves abruptly for his nearby home at Wickham Hall while Beth ponders her attraction to him. Griffin is upset that Isobel would not come with him. His housekeeper tells him her niece Sarah is missing and assumed murdered by the serial killer who is stalking the area. Griffin thinks back to his late wife Amelia.-------------- Beth senses that someone evil is watching her. It reminds her of her youth when she feared so much. She fears the dark and small closed spaces, but tries to hide it. She sees Griffin and tells him to go play with his daughter, but he refuses as he says she blames him for her mother¿s death. Griffin is attracted to Beth not just because she is pretty, but because he feels she knows his soul and still wants him though he believess he is unworthy of her and asks if she heard of the rumors that he killed his wife. Soon she will know all the answers, but may not live long to tell anyone else like the father and daughter she loves.----------- The serial killer subplot is cleverly designed so that the hero looks guilty and ties everything together while the romance between the lead couple is fun to follow. Historical romantic suspense readers who like a gothic feel to their tales will enjoy Eve Silver¿s fine late Regency.----------- Harriet Klausner

    Get this one! :

    I am so glad I got to read this early -- it was terrific! BR BR We have a tortured hero - Griffin - and a tortured heroine - Beth. . . Beth is starting a new position at a school to support herself and her mother. Griffin, a widow, has a daughter at the school, who is withdrawn and doesn't speak. While they find themselves attracted to each other, there is a serial killer on the loose -- two teachers at the school are dead, and Beth might be next -- she looks just like them, fair skinned and blond hair. But the thing is, the rumors are that Griffin killed his first wife. . . and is the serial killer as well. BR BR Incredibly well written, a wonderfully described environment, a wonderful romance and amazing suspense and mystery. . . this is a page turner that will be on your keeper shelf!
