Summary

If you love historical romantic suspense, don't miss this thrilling listening!   

Lisa Jackson, New York Times best-selling author raves His Dark Kiss is "Riveting! A dark, steamy and twisted tale!". 

Rumors of madness and murder lurk within the crumbling walls of isolated Manorbrier Castle. But Emma Parrish is not easily put off. She accepts a position no one else dares, as governess to the son of Lord Anthony Craven, the castle’s dark master. Her presence stirs up shadows and threat. She feels unseen eyes watching her. Eerie laughter haunts her, and the seductive pull of Anthony Craven lures her.   

The mystery of Anthony Craven’s shadowy past lurk behind the locked doors of the estate’s forbidden Round Tower. Mysterious lights flash there in the night. The servants whisper warnings of death. Anthony himself warns Emma there is only danger to be found in his sensual embrace.   

Powerfully drawn to the dangerously alluring Anthony, Emma finds herself unable to deny her deepest yearnings. But even as she succumbs to the master of Manorbrier, she is touched by the whisper of evil that rises from the secrets of his past.

Horribly long boring book! Skip this one please.

Now I truly enjoyed two other books from this author with 5 stars, but for This one fell short repetitive, nothing but fanciful longing from the heroine from page one. An utter twit. I was irritated and truly bored!
This book could have been done in half the time it dragged on and on.
Definitely hated it.
Will be returning this audio book.
I read the authors first and 3 rd gothic novel i believe and they were fantastic!
This one, I noted just not up to par of the other dark gothic series!
Really disappointed!

What a waste of time

This book was boring and repetitive with almost nothing but bland introspection by the heroine. The writing style was very elementary too with all telling and no showing. Boring and a waste of time.

Not as good as the first...

And yet it left me wowed in the last page. Even when the Audible's closing statement was heard, I had to say it out loud, Wow!

Good suspense. Distrust, madness and so many secrets! I thought it could have been longer. Still, a lower rating is unthinkable after that satisfying feeling at the end. Yeah, that epilogue felt abrupt. Simply, wow! In a good way. Hence why I still wonder between 4 or 5 stars rating.

Spoiler: I thought it was a great take on Jane Eyre. Except, I far enjoy this story more. No great tragedy between main characters. Happy.

The Audible narration is another great performance. I can't fully describe it. It makes the story come alive in your mind.

I think this story is available in Audible Escape. Others in series were. After the first book, I had changed my mind and purchased them all.

Great Story

Sweet story with mystery and suspense. I loved the homage made to Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca.

ok

It was okay, particularly loved how well it was written unlike so many chick other chick lits that are tawdry with gratuitous scenes
I just felt the last part was a bit dragging. Like I want to yell at the hero for wasting so much time (SPOILER ALERT) and endless dialogues before he decided he should save someone's life.
I liked Emma but felt her hero was so-so

Horrible book!!

If you are looking for “his strong, masculine form”, “her swollen bosom”, “and such in almost every chapter, then this is the gothic novel for you. If you are expecting an actual mystery romance with minimal level of sense (I honestly only wanted a light summer book) and moderately developed characters - look elsewhere.

The narrator was great to the very end (hat down for that!!)

limited character development

Drawn out too long in minute details that wouldn't carry the story along or bring the reader additional information. Character development was decent but not one intermingled well with the other - hard to recognize or even assume relationships we're being built.

Finding love

This book was well written and narrated. The characters were irritating because they were very secretive. So the mysteries were hard to solve. This is a enjoyable read.
