Definitely worth the read, even though it takes place years and years ago, its a great love story, and how it ties into the Blackstone Affair books is great as well.

We get a look into Marianne from a journal that Brynne finds after they move into Stonewall Court. I needed to know more about Marianne's story from these excerpts and I wasn't disappointed. Darius has loved Marianne for years but she is 10 years younger than he is … he moves away and tries to forget her but that doesn’t work. When he returns, Marianne captivates him all over again. Marianne is headed to debtor's prison with her father. She feels unworthy of love and well, anything good to happen in her life. Enter Darius to save the day and show her that she is cherished. The connection between Darius and Marianne is electric and Raine Miller delivers with incredibly erotic sexual encounters between the two. We also unravel the mysteries of Marianne's past to the real source of her pain as she learns to embrace love.

I liked that this book is about the past but leads into the future situation, the book itself is not a book you just cant put down, but it is still fun to read.

I have enjoyed the Blackstone series, but this story about Darius and Marianne was just so good. It is the most perfect story of historical romance of two lone souls that manage to find and complete each other. I loved to see that touch of BDSM on the historical perspective of two people who were so willing to please each other.

A MUST READ HISTORICAL! I loved Darius and Marianne, plus if you've read the other books in the Blackstone series, you get to see some similarities between the past and real life. I think that it was a perfectly written historical romance with just the right amount of BDSM thrown in.

Breathtakingly beautiful, romantic, historical read laced with tasteful BDSM that shows both characters' growth. Another winning couple crafted by author Raine Miller, Marianne George is the grown daughter nursing her drunken father in a village alongside an 1830s Somerset coast. In addition to the debts accumulated by her father, she also nurses a secret she has never bared to anyone. Darius Rourke is a wealthy man over a decade older than sweet Marianne. Having chanced upon her in her younger days, he has waited for her to grow from a child into a woman. Having traveled abroad, he is unaware of her secret. Instead, he finds himself increasingly ensnared with her perfection and her willingness to please, especially her subservience to his dominant desires. On the heels of this love story, about 175 years later, is the Blackstone Affair series. More BDSM in those books.... ;-)
