New York Times bestseller Hannah Howell's extraordinary Wherlocke family returns with the story of a passion that will heed no resistance, no matter how deadly . . .

When Lorelei Sundun first finds Sir Argus Wherlocke in her garden, she's never heard of the mysterious Wherlocke clan - or their otherworldly abilities. That changes the moment she watches Argus - the most tantalizing man she's ever seen - disappear before her very eyes. What she's witnessed should be impossible. But so should falling in love with a man she's only just met . . .

Pursued by a madman intent on harnessing the Wherlockes' talents as weapons, Argus meant to seek help from his family, not to involve a duke's lovely daughter in the struggle. But now, the enchanting Lorelei is his only hope for salvation - and the greatest temptation he's ever faced . . .

Okay writing, but the hero just was NOT hero material in my eyes. He was dishonorable - he agonized over kissing the heroine, then he couldn't help kissing her, then he agonized over seducing her, then he seduces her, then he continues to get it on with her...and all the while, he KNOWS he should marry her, he KNOWS she would welcome his suit, he KNOWS it's expected of him, but he refuses even to entertain the idea. Why? Because of an absolutely ridiculous certainty that marriages for his family are DOOMED. *rolls eyes*

Yet he keeps on boinking with the heroine...without any hint of birth control, by the way. Yup, lots of unprotected sex with the no-longer-virginal heroine, even though the "hero" should know better. Why should he know better? Oh, he already has two illegitimate kids. That he doesn't tell her about. That she learns about when the two kids show up on her doorstep, looking for their pops. Yup. Real classy.

He only realizes he has feelings for her AFTER she's been stabbed in the back by the villain and is lying on the ground, bleeding. In fact, here's a quote that should show why I'm so frustrated with this hero and want to smack him upside the head:

"He did not like to think about how long he had clung to the idea of a curse. It was embarrassing now that he sat and actually thought it out. Worse, he had left Lorelei to think that he saw what they shared as no more than an affair. (Um, that's what you did see it as, buddy.) That was something he would have to deeply apologize for. It was also embarrassing to think he had to see her on the ground bleeding before he understood what she meant to him. He had even just silently accepted her words of love when they had made love, as if somehow they were his due. Something else he would have to apologize deeply for, as it must have hurt her."

Please, do yourself a favor and AVOID this one.
