Descended from witches burned at the stake, Lady Emilia Noble knows all too well how society persecutes the different. She trusts no one but her own siblings, never daring to reveal to anyone outside the family that she, like her grandmother before her, can read a person’s emotions through the changing colors of their aura. When her brother’s foolhardy boast that he can predict the future entangles him with the unscrupulous Lord Abernathy, Emilia is faced with a new threat: the ruination of the family’s finances and the unmasking of their secret past.
Until Emilia meets Felix Hunter, the Duke of Kintore. For years, Felix has watched as his immoral uncle, Lord Abernathy, has cast shame upon their family through his dishonest machinations. Determined that Abernathy won’t hurt anyone else, he vows to help Emilia resolve her family’s debts. He’s been drawn to her since the moment he met her, and slowly, she begins to trust him too. But when Abernathy threatens to reveal the Noble family’s supernatural gifts, Emilia’s worst nightmare becomes a very real reality.
Can Felix and Emilia’s love triumph over the forces of evil, or are they fated to be perpetually alone?
When love is mixed with magic, anything can happen.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Before I start, I should say I have not read all the books in the series, but you don’t need to in order to follow each story. However, each story is a descendent of the characters from the very first story. So if you haven’t read the first book I recommend you do so to understand what is happening or where these stories came from.
Ok so this story, Emilia and her sisters all have the gift to read peoples auroras which came from their burned at the stake witch descendants hence why there is a paranormal theme. This can be a gift and a curse for people. It becomes a curse when her brother tells the wrong people about his ability and BOOM the bad guy enters the story. However, we soon learn the bad guy has a sweet family member in the wings who will do all he can for Emilia and her family.
I enjoyed the story of Felix and Emilia. I loved the light touched of paranormal in the story because I am a huge paranormal girl. This story, as with all of her stories, have the theme of the importance of family. I loved seeing her bringing her writing gifts to this series.
