Prudence Merryweather knows that the only way to save her brother is to go to the den of the Fallen Angel also known as the Earl of Angelstone. She knows she is taking a risk to seeing him in the dead of night but she also knows that she doesn’t have any other choice. Prue is full of curiosity and this comes out in her investigations into spectral phenomena, which tends to make her an oddity and an Original in Society. It is starting to look like that she has finally met the one man that can appreciate her little hobby and that is even willing to help her with it.

Sebastian Fleetwood, Earl of Angelstone will take his amusements where he can get them. What he never expected was to be drawn to Prue’s mix of boldness and innocence that makes him want to get to know her much better. Sebastian has dwelled more in the darkness than in the light so that when Prudence comes along with all her sunlight and warmth his only wish is to get closer. Sebastian has his own hobby that is similar to Prue’s and that makes them the perfect match for each other.

Sebastian has just gotten another chance to practice his hobby and this time Prue is determined to help him with it. What neither realizes at first is that this time more is going on then they first realize and if they are not careful they may end up paying a much higher price than they would like. Only time will tell if they are going to make it through this latest case alive. One wrong step and things will get dangerous very quickly. Now it is going to be a race against time to make sure that they come out alive and that they have the future together that is starting to look so very bright.

This is another amazing story by this author that will have the reader turning the pages as quickly as possible just to see what will happen next. This has both humor and adventure that makes it a wonderful story to read. The characters bring the story to live and the secondary character make it that much more engrossing. The reader never knows what will happen next and will not be disappointed with what does come next.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
