    ONE OF THE BEST LOVE STORIES!!!

    This is one of the best love stories I have read in a long time! Butterfly by Victoria Vale is book 3 in The Villain Duology series. Get the tissues out ladies for this one because you will need them. I hardly ever cry when reading a book but this one had me in tears. Nothing better than a good cry when reading a great story! It is very tragic yet beautiful at the same time. This story is about unconditional love which is why I loved it so much. Victoria has a true talent for writing and a very creative mind. Her characters, Olivia and Niall, come alive and you can’t help but fall in love with them both. This regency story is original, a bit steamy and even though it is in a series can be read as a standalone. It is not often that I get to read a true description of what that period of time deflects and I appreciate Victoria’s honesty and true telling of that time in history and what it was like. To put this simply, this book is amazing! This story has rape, vengeance, madness, caring, a loving brother, tragedy, loyalty, true friendships, kindness, nightmares, cruelty, evil, and unconditional love. I highly recommend this book, you won’t be disappointed!! ***This book was gifted to me and I am voluntarily reviewing.

    Victoria Vale you did it again!

    I read this as an ARC and holy hell Victoria Vale, you did it again. This book is the sequel to The Villain Duology, which consisted of The Villain and The Dove. The book centers around two characters I met in previous books, and yes, you definitely have to read The Duology first. Without the background of the other two books, you won't appreciate the story's point of view and you will be lost within the references of all that went before. Niall, who began in the old Earl's employ as a stableboy (working for and with his father), and Olivia who was the step-daughter of the old Earl, and step-sister to the man referred to in the title of The Villain, the new Earl Of Hartmoor, have been in love nearly all of their lives, having been children together at Dunnotar. Olivia grows up loving Niall, but in Regency England, no permanent connection can be made - that just isn't done. Eventually circumstances in the form of the old earl interfere and off she goes to London for the first "season" and experiences a violent attack and horrible events following it (none of these events will be noted here because I'm not going to post one spoiler - this book was so different than the first two, I want you to read every single word without knowing what's going to happen - and if you've read the first two, then you already know what I'm referencing). This book is the love story between Niall and Livvie. Plain and simple. It is not dark like the Duology was, it is filled with a story of love and faith and determination and forever. It is probably the sweetest love story Ms. Vale has ever written, bar none. I've loved her other books, but this was a masterpiece of enduring and forever love that she wrote from the heart. This follows the same time frame as the Duology but is written with Niall and Livvie's point of view. It is also very well written, it has a superb pacing to it, and at not one point in the entire book did I feel it was wanting in anything. The author gave us what we needed to complete Niall and Livvie's journey into love along with answering all of the questions we had when we finished reading The Dove. The Butterfly brought back a time in my life where I read romances - didn't matter what era, didn't matter who wrote it - and loved being teary eyed when the Happily Ever After rolled around. I found myself in more than one place tearing up, not only for Livvie, but for Niall and Adam and Daphne, as well as the other women who have an important place in this book. I always cry at happy endings, but I cried for Livvie in places too. She withstood many horrors before finally coming back to Niall, but she comes out of the depths of hell to survive and to grow stronger, basking in Niall's love. And when you read the book, you'll find that is the absolute best ending for them. And one added note: BEST EPILOGUE EVER !!!!!!! The book ends in a true happily ever after and when the pre-order is delivered to me, I'll read it again, because Victoria Vale just can't write fast enough to suit me. Special note to author: instead of basking in the glory, get writing, we're waiting for your next one. ;-) And thank you for writing this and all of the other books you've penned - this one was one of the most compelling and sweet romances I've read in a long, long time.

    The Butterfly

    Since Niall was old enough to start mucking out stalls at Dunvar House he'd had one fact drilled into him. What went on inside Dunvar House was none of his business. The occupants were his betters not his equals. He'd been born for once purpose and that was to serve the master's household by caring for their horses like his dad and his grandfather had done. He was not to interact with the Callahan's while he served on the lowest rung of the servant hierarchy. It was at the age of ten, his first trip into Dunvar House with his father when he saw her. Lady Olivia. She was six, looked like she was four, and carried herself like she was a grand lady. The moment she smiled at him he knew he wanted to what ever it took to protect her, even if he didn't understand the feeling. Then, once again, his father reminded him that 'Fine things weren't to be touched by the likes of him.' Olivia was the master's step-daughter, his best friend's sister. To her, he and her brother Hart were her two knights in shining armor. Protectors to her Princess. The one being he loved above all else. She was his everything. Let me take a breath and compose myself. This. This right here is a journey no one on God's green earth should ever have to make. No one should be forced to endure and yet Victoria Vale has told the tale with all the heart wrenching emotion and bright eyed hope than I've ever read. This is a journey that will change your life. A moment in time that will make you realize what true love and courage are. This, is what we strive to believe in and achieve. The world is your oyster Ms. Vale but I'm limited to 5 stars, which you've more than achieved. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and ma voluntarily leaving a review.

    Olivia and Niall had a beautiful love

    This book was so good. Once I started I didn't want to stop reading. I thought the love between Niall and Olivia was so beautiful. I also loved that they didn't deny they felt for one another they just had so many things happen to keep them apart it was heartbreaking. Olivia was such a beautiful person and I am glad she was able to overcome the horrible things done to her. Niall's love for Olivia was so strong he endured a lot to help her heal and keep her safe. I am so happy they got their happy ending because they both certainly deserved it. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    The Butterfly

    I really enjoyed this book as I have enjoyed the earlier two in the Villain Duology. I just love an excellent and enthralling story. And a wonderfully beautiful ending. Buy this book. Just remember to read the two earlier books before reading this one.
