Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Madeline Fallon, Lady Redcomb is a beautiful woman. She also has a talent that the government has helped her develop. While at a party, her shoe maker comes up to her and asks her to find his daughter. What Madeline finds is that several other young women have been kidnapped. She wants to help, but her boss Jasper Reeves, Lord Gallo, refuses to let her help. It was difficult for me to get into this book, but once I did, I really liked it. It's full of sexual tension real and fantasy, between Madeline and Jasper. I'm hoping there are more in this series. I'd like to see Faye's story and Shaleen. I'm hoping Ms Greiman brings Cur back.
Widow Madeline Fallon has an image of a proper lady that she maintains amongst Polite Society as a cover. Beneath the masquerade of a prim aristocrat she is talented member of the Lavender House coven. When young women begin to disappear, Madeline investigates.
Jasper Reeves has loved Maddie from the moment he first met when he saved her life. He hides his deep regard for the widow, but joins her on her dangerous inquiry in order to keep his beloved safe. However, Jasper also has recently suffered from sexual visions of him with Maddie that he believes is an attempt to cast a spell on him by an unknown adversary for an equally unknown motive; he needs no spell to envision him making love with Maddie. When Maddie returns his desire, neither is sure if it is love or a dark deadly enchantment.
Readers will appreciate Lois Greiman's superb Lavender House investigative historical romantic fantasy (see UNDER YOUR SPELL) due to a strong atmosphere of enchantment that feels real. Accompanying the lead couple on their inquiry, the audience will feel the desire, the suspense and the spells that keep Jasper and Madeline together and hopping. Filled with twists readers will be seduced by Ms. Greiman¿s spell.
