“Why would I let the world see him? He’s imperfect. No, he needs to stick to the shadows where he’ll not bring shame to this family.”
William Cavendish is…different. Too much so for his merciless father to bear publicly. He was hidden away from the world his entire life until, in one dark moment, he did the unthinkable to save his beloved brother, gaining his own freedom in the process. But liberty has its own price. William struggles with a world he doesn’t understand, emotions he’s never experienced…and an alarming taste for the dark side he’s discovered dwelling within him.
Formally educated in law, Tamara Bennet is unlike most women of the day. Not bad for the daughter of a lowly lady’s maid. When she learns a secret society was responsible for the torture of her closest acquaintance, Victoria Cavendish, she vows to employ any and all means—legal or otherwise—to bring the society to its knees. At her side is Victoria herself, as well as Victoria’s husband, Nicholas, and his brother—the intriguing and troubled William.
Delving ever deeper into London’s darkest shadows, an undeniable attraction blooms between William and Tamara, bringing them closer and closer…until their actions stir up perilous forces determined to tear them apart.
Review by Becky
Tainted Reasoning, Dark Sovereignty Book 2 by Anna Edwards
I received the book for my honest review.
What can I say?! Anna pulls us deeper into what remains of the Secret Society. We learned that Nicolas was not like his evil father. He married Victoria. Nicolas and William slowly started righting the wrongs of the Secret Society. Victoria’s bestie, Tamara, was instantly drawn to William. William grew up being hidden from the world by his father as well as being told he brought shame to the family…being less than the wonderful human being he was deep inside. Just like Nicolas, William’s heart was good and that good would come out with Tamara.
William thought his rough, strong sexual desires and acts were evil. Oh baby, bring it on!!! Tamara discovered that rough, strong sex is what she desired as well. Tamara walks along side William and shows him he is not the only one who has Autism. Tamara volunteered at a school that caters to those with Autism and brings William to visit as a surprise. Seeing William open up and realize he is not a disgrace, was beautiful.
Viscount Hamilton is a *&%# bag. Talk about warped. Damn! I anxiously await Joanna and Theodore’s story. As evil as Hamilton is and all he has done, I have confidence that Anna will make sure he is properly castrated!!
Ok, this is the bit where I have to sell myself. Why is it so much easier to write about sexy blokes! Anyway.
I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an Accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.
In 2015 I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. It was also around this time that I became one of the founding members of a dramatic/erotic/dark roleplaying group on Twitter. It was wildly popular with both English and American followers. The writing helped me to overcome my depression by giving me an outlet to channel my thoughts into and not sit around worrying all day about things that would never happen. I took over responsibility for management of the group and responsibility for the development of our storylines. As well as playing at least ten different characters in the group ranging from an innocent virgin, bloodthirsty assassin and even a male lover. The success of the role-play spurred me on to writing novels.
I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality. Surrendered Control, my first book released in November 2016, combines two of my favourite travel destinations. India is where I lived for eighteen months with my husband and two children. My young son was only six months old when we travelled there. It was a fabulous time for us all and they learnt so much about the differing cultures, as well as, much to my husband’s chagrin, spending lots of money in the silk shops. The Control series will feature lots of international travel.
I have always been an avid reader. Mainly murder mystery in the past but with Beautiful Bastard I discovered a whole new set of novels and I haven’t looked back since. I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth. My heroines demure but with spunk. And my books in a kick arse series.
