    tense romantic thriller

    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.

    One of my favorite re-reads!

    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 histori

    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!
