Publisher's Summary

The only way to fight a powerful darkness is with a powerful love

Olivia Moreland prides herself on discrediting charlatans, particularly the false mediums that flock to London. But when Lord Stephen St. Leger requests her help in investigating an alleged psychic's claims, she can't deny the ominous feeling she has within the walls of his ancient estate - or the intimately familiar connection she has with Stephen himself.  

The last time he'd called Blackhope Hall home, Stephen had watched as his elder brother claimed both the family title and the woman he loved. Now, in the wake of his brother's murder, Stephen has reluctantly returned to find his family ensconced in scandal. Who is responsible for his brother's untimely death? And what is it about investigator Olivia Moreland that so thoroughly draws him in, reigniting a passion he hasn't felt in years?  

Contains mature themes.

Read this AFTER “Her Scandalous Pursuit”

This should be the second book in the series. “Her Scandalous Pursuit” details Thisbe’s and Desmond’s story. In “Mesmerized” they are already married and it’s about 7 years later.

Intriguing!

When Stephen St. Leger hired Olivia Moreland to expose some charlatans that were taking advantage of his grieving mother, he never dreamed of all the mysteries they would uncover! This book is full of intrigue, deception, mystery, and heart-pounding adventure! Narrator Will Thorne does a wonderful job conveying the suspense of the story.

So good

I loved this so much. Not only was I blissfully happy to listen to “Will Thorne” (aka my favourite narrator, who apparently also narrates under another name—which I am fine with because his voice should not be confined to the wonders of Stella Riley and Lucinda Brant’s writing) but also because the hero and heroine were so sweet and gentle and loving which was a welcome change from the typical HR character tropes. Then add the mystery and the parallel medieval storyline and it was an utter delight. I’m super pleased with this new author/narrator combo and can’t wait for the rest of the series.

Absolutely brilliant! Love passed through time

Brilliant - dark - love - ghosts and more love - enjoyed every second - but surely this is Alex Wyndham narrating? Is this a pseudonym?

Unusual story, that kept me enthralled


I really enjoyed the mystery aspect of this story, a cleverly woven tale of investigations into fake psychics and clairvoyants, entwined with unexplained paranormal dreams, made it a much more interesting listen than your run of the mill romance period romance....And brilliantly by Will Thorn.

These are just brilliant!

I love a good murder mystery plot and I love historical romances - this series is just fab as you get both in the one book. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, one of my favourite narrators (under a different name) just beings it all together to be brilliant!! - buy now and do not even hesitate!! Best credits ever!

Great story

I thoroughly enjoyed this because I found it difficult to stop listening later in the evening, I was so gripped by the intensity of it all. The reader told the story very well and kept me truly hanging in for more revelations .

Will Thorne (Alex Wyndham) narrates brilliantly as always. The gothic and ghostly melodrama is fast paced and enjoyable.

A mesmerising story.

I like everything about this book.
The depth of characters, the lack of gratuitous SEX.
The tension, suspense and the multi- layered characters
This book doesn't sell SEX, but relies on its story telling.
Will it last? Or will the author get lazy?
