Kasey Michaels' Legacy of the Rose is a bit of a departure from her normal lighter regency romance novels, and it is a very good one. Michaels has a gift for storytelling that she fully uses here to explore some very interesting and complex characters as well as some twisting and turning plot lines. Michaels explores the darker side of human sexuality and the violence that can so often go hand in hand with it. She brings the reader fully realized characters rather than just the archetypal hero and villain that are so often used in this genre. I don't want to discuss the plot, as it is rather complicated and it's always better to just let it unfold as you read it, but it does follow what you would expect in general from a regency romance. But Michaels does more here than just give the reader an afternoon diversion. Legacy of the Rose is a book filled with a dark intensity that is often sadly missing from regency romance, and it is a book that will likely stay with me for a long time to come.
