    Mary has been hiding all her life. She's the daughter of a renowned teacher, who was branded heretic, tortured and killed along with her mother, and the church means to do the same to Mary, even though she was only a child when her parents died. You'd think that after several years not hearing a word of a little girl, they'd have given up, wouldn't you? Nope, the church, specifically an inquisitor named Decimus, has a long memory, and he still wants her. The man who delivered her years ago, Magn Mary has been hiding all her life. She's the daughter of a renowned teacher, who was branded heretic, tortured and killed along with her mother, and the church means to do the same to Mary, even though she was only a child when her parents died. You'd think that after several years not hearing a word of a little girl, they'd have given up, wouldn't you? Nope, the church, specifically an inquisitor named Decimus, has a long memory, and he still wants her. The man who delivered her years ago, Magnus, is busy being the hero of another story, so he's sent his sometime compatriot, The Dark One, a/k/a Michael (only that's not really his name either). The Dark One is a bit theatrical, wearing a black shroud, black gloves, and even a black veil over his face (which does make one wonder how the hell he gets round in the dark—which he does a lot since he's also fond of disappearing into the shadows). TDO rescues her, but Decimus seems to have this uncanny ability to follow. Eventually, he goes to Magnus—because, yes, he knows that Magnus was the one who rescued the girl years ago—strangely, given that he's a guy known for butchering people who even unwittingly help people he wants to butcher, he doesn't do anything about it, other than deliver a message: Either Mary is delivered to him, or he will rain hell on everyone Magnus loves, starting with his wife. Oh, and by the way, he doesn't want to torture and slaughter Mary. Nope, he wants to do even worse—marry her, subjugate her, and thus prove to the world that he's able to beat the literal hell out of any sinner. What's a gal to do? Let innocents suffer to save her, or marry the devil? There are a couple neat twists (you might see them coming, but they're still neat). Pretty good read. 3.5.

    So... I had never read a romance novel before this one. It was my first year in college and so sick of the guys I was around that I picked up any book and it was this one. I grabbed a pint of ice cream and stayed up reading. It sure made me smile and feel better. So I gave it Five stars because it has a personal connection.

    Suspenseful novel with interesting characters and lots of twists and turns. Riveting story that held my attention from start to finish. I loved the action, adventure and passion. Donna Fletcher is one of my favorite authors and she doesn't disappoint here. I hope there is a third novel with Roarke's story.

    Awesome I fell in love with it. It was beautifully written. I was so happy and nervous and couldn't wait to see what happened next. I know that I would not hesitate to read it again.

    Good Read Once again Ms. Fletcher has done it again. The connection between the characters was beautifully crafted and told. This was a marvelous read.

    I love this book, it kept me interested the whole way and the love plot was wonderful. The end wasn’t reliable but it’s a story after all so maybe it didn’t have to be.

    This book had a good idea, and could have been a great dark-romance. But most of the way through it just falls flat and gets wishywashy. Also there's a love-at-first-sight, which can be done well. In this book it's just annoying. She's known him about two weeks and she's raising her hands to the sky and spinning in circles crying out "I love you!" Seriously.

She's known him about two weeks and she's raising her hands to the sky and spinning in circles crying out "I love you!" Seriously. (view spoiler)[When I first started reading I assumed the Dark One was Decimus's son, then later thought maybe his brother. The first time Mary sees Decimus's hand by the spring is when I first started to think he actually IS Decimus. It was exciting picking out clues and it as a big motivator for me to continue reading to see if I was right. I liked this idea, since Decimus is clearly a grey character who picks and chooses and helps who he can while still doing bad things to maintain his cover. I thought it might lead to some interesting discussion and character-building/growth. Nope. Decimus says the only people he's ever killed were church people. Uh-huh. He doesn't work his way up from a nobody into a feared and respected leader in the church and government by keeping his hands bloodless. People don't fear a man when all his prisoners mysteriously escape. He can't fake the death of everyone who passes through his halls. And even if he somehow did manage it that means there's several hundred (thousand?) people out there who aren't as dead as the church believes. People talk. Decimus was one person in the church, the others would find out eventually. What of the torturer at Decimus's fortress? He clearly loves his job, can't love a job you aren't allowed to do because your prisoners all disappear or die before they can be tortured. He needed to be seen to carry out some punishments, cause as it is he seems to be all bluster. "roar roar if you do this I will have your head stomp stomp doorslam" The book glosses all of it over, pretending he hasn't done anything wrong that he fuels his power with threats and that his men are complete morons. I would have preferred him to have had to have done some horrible things in his undercover identity. And I'm sure realistically he did, but the book doesn't say so. I was also confused by why exactly Decimus wanted to fake Mary's death and get her out of there. Apparently the plan had been for him to marry her to protect her from the church. So once they were married... she was no longer in danger. But now that they're married he suddenly wants her to go into hiding for her own protection. (hide spoiler)]

    It began nicely.. but when the truth, the secret is revealed, I didn't find it that interesting.. The secret of the hero was unexpected (I couldn't guess it). It was as if he ceased being the hero after his identity is revealed. He was no more strong for me. The heroine takes the lead, but the story lost appeal to me. I was expecting more I believe.

    As usual Donna Fletcher's books are full of excitement and an excellent read. I love all of her books, can highly recommend her for all lovers of historical romance. I keep her books as I often read them more than once. As usual Donna Fletcher's books are full of excitement and an excellent read.

    wow!?! what a gripping story This is a strong story filled with escape, mystery, and romance set at a time when the Church doggedly pursued heretics. Well written and hard to put down. It was nice to read about Magnus, Reena, Thomas and Brigid again. The Dark One made a cameo appearance in Legendary Warrior. He returns as our hero rescuing the Mary that Magnus saved all those years ago. Much like the Legend/Magnus, there are two very different sides to Michael, the Dark One.

This pair of books is darker than most other romances I have read of late. Both also show unusual courtships. When Mary is rescued, she cannot speak because of damage to her throat. So she uses simple sign language or writes in the dirt. Michael is very perceptive about what she is trying to say. Magnus and Michael are complex characters, harder for their women to know and love, but definitely worth fighting for. Both women had to go to extreme measures to ensure their lives with their husbands.

    The synopsis for this book sounded very cool, romantic, and fun. And at first, I did enjoy this story. But about halfway through things just became ridiculous and irritating. There's a surprise twist that I don't want to give away by going into too much detail, but the characters' actions in several instances made me roll my eyes in disgust and irritation. Putting the customary melodrama of historical romances aside, the story wasn't believable. The synopsis for this book sounded very cool, romantic, and fun. And at first, I did enjoy this story.

    Dark mood and slow to launch I did not enjoy this book as much as I had hoped. The story started out well but I began to lose interest in the story and characters about a third of the way into it. Fortunately, the story began to launch at that point or I would not have stayed with it. The big reveal in the book was anticipated early on so when it came it was no surprise. The book was just "so-so" for me. Dark mood and slow to launch I did not enjoy this book as much as I had hoped.

    The only reason this is a 3 star instead of 2 star is because I needed a simple romance. No intertwined plotlines and insta-love. This is exactly what I needed. There is a twist in the book that had me scratching my head trying to figure out how it happened even though we get the background of it. After I finished it I just shrugged my shoulders and decided to not dwell on it. Anyway, if you want a stereotypical historical romance, this is a good choice.

    Good romance Enjoyed this! The story was different enough from most other romances that it held my interest throughout. Having toned down the sex it was even more enjoyable for someone who enjoys the romance!

    I loved the story and the characters...until the end. The twist left you scratching your head. The resolution just felt rushed which left certain details unresolved for the reading. I still gave this book a high rating as I did truly like the plot an the idea behind the twist. I'm happy I read it. I loved the story and the characters...until the end.

    I enjoyed this story much better than the first. While some parts were sort of repetitive, they were not overly annoying. I enjoyed the relationship ship between Mary and The Dark One but wished we learned a little more about how they fared. Also his true identity was pretty obvious.
