All Grace Gauthier ever wanted was the security of a good marriage, family, and home. Instead, despised by her aristocratic father's family because of her mother's foreign birth, she's taken a safe position as a governess. Now, unprotected and alone in London, accused of the shocking murder of her employer, she has no one to turn to except the mysterious - and possibly dangerous - Lord Ruthveyn.
A dark-eyed Lucifer, Ruthveyn guards his secrets carefully. His shadowed past is a source of pain and rumors - only whispered. Grace's plight - which echoes his own - moves him, as does her quiet beauty. Ruthveyn is determined to save Grace by unmasking a killer. But his growing passion places his own heart at risk....

Boring What Happened
I was so disappointed in this book I could not get through it, yet Liz Carlyle is one of my favorite authors and I was looking forward to this new series. This book is so far from her normal genre with a drawn out plot and shallow characters.

I did enjoy this story, it was interesting. There was a murder mystery story line and plot to go with the romance story. I liked the hero and the heroine a lot. I really liked the secondary character of Anisha, the hero's sister. There was plenty of dialogue. Some good chemistry and sex scenes, not a rated G book.
I am still debating moving on to the next book in the series. As I liked this story it didn't grab my impulse to immediately buy the next book. Still thinking on it...
As for the narrator she did a very good job. Everyone had their own distinct voice and she did the men pretty good.
