The older I get the less appealing an alpha male is to me, I enjoy strong males who don’t need to flaunt their need for control of all things. I don’t enjoy the aspect of ” you don’t need to know, you just need to trust me.” … There are some exceptions as far as the story goes.
This being said this book is more like 3.5 stars for me because the story is intriguing to say the least. Catherine Moore is a newly widowed detective in England who is working a case involving Lord Redthorn who is a suspect in a double homicide and it just so happens the two victims are part of his harem.
Catherine is disgusted and yet intrigued by him from the start, she becomes obsessed with pinning this murder on him to the point her boss gives her leave. That’s when she decides to take Nicholas Redthorn up on his offer and delves into his harem to see if she can’t figure things out.
She figures things out, but also discovers quite a bit about herself and finds herself entirely lost to Nicholas.
While the story is intriguing, the romance to it is… A little off for me. They’re both obsessed with one another and the way they clicked was fairly insta love which seemed displaced for me. The more thugs the develop the worse this feeling gets to me.
However, the side story of her husband’s cause of death and how that wraps up with Redthorn’s story is quite interesting, a lot of twists here and then the ending… You don’t quite see that coming.
Catherine is forgettable, though, she’s wishy-washy and inconsistent.
I will say this, though, I did read it straight through and it kept me engaged.
