Overview

Set in the English countryside, this exquisite new novel by Tracy MacNish reveals how one woman’s courage wins her the love she never dreamed she’d find…

While Olwyn Gawain lives as a virtual prisoner in her home, her scientist father conducts chilling experiments on stolen corpses in the dungeon of their keep. One night, Olwyn is shocked to discover that her father’s latest subject—a breathtakingly handsome young man—is still clinging to life. Refusing to let him die, Olwyn stops her father at gunpoint and flees, determined to bring the innocent man to safety…

The son of aristocrats, Aidan Mullin doesn’t know what to make of the unusual, intriguing Olwyn. But as the pair make their way toward Aidan’s home, he finds himself drawn to the alluring young woman who saved him from certain death. Fiery and sensual, Olwyn’s very touch fuels a desire in Aidan too fierce to deny. But when Olwyn learns he is hiding a heartbreaking secret, Aidan must face a difficult choice—or risk losing forever the love he so desperately needs…

In 1806 in Pemarlag, England Rhys Gawain uses grave robbers to supply him the corpses he studies at night on his crumbling estate. The "medical researcher" who drove his wife away a decade ago leaves the details of paying the venders to his daughter Olwyn while he dissects the bodies in his lab. Olwyn also draws pictures of body parts. The latest delivery from the Chester grave robbers proves a bit of a problem when Olwyn finds Lord Aidan Mullin breathing. He is totally confused with what happened and how he ended up with his angel. Olwyn absconds with the living corpse before her dad can practice on a live subject as she vows to escort him home. On their trek they fall in love, but he conceals a secret from her and her obsessed father follows them; she is unsure whether it is to bring his daughter home or his latest subject. Although the lead couple is a terrific pairing especially with how capable the heroine is as a chip off her maternal block, her father brings a sinister sense of doom as he instills chills and thrills to the story line. Regency romantic suspense fans will want to travel with Rhys and Olwyn as she takes him home while her dad is in deadly pursuit. Harriet Klausner

The book hooked me from the beginning. I immersed myself into their story. Just the right amount of alpha male but strong female. I also enjoyed the supporting characters and it helped me when I read their story. I enjoyed the twins's parents story very much. The grandparents story had a few hardcore issues that might offend some. I have read this book 3 times and will many more in the future. Good length, good character developement and love scenes are not too short or too graphic.

The "mad scientist" theme is rather unusual in historical romance, but it does work in this book, which is populated with over-the-top characters.  The plot is slightly different from the standard historical because of these characters, and I did enjoy the book. However, (and this is the reason I only gave it three stars) the story is set in early nineteenth-century England, and yet there are several times when a character says something using twentieth or twenty-first century American English vernacular!  That sort of thing really jumps out at me and takes me out of the story, and is further proof  that the art of book editing is sadly almost extinct!
