    Enjoyable and satisfying read!

    Book 3 in the Order of the MUSE series, but can be read as a stand alone. Although, I would recommend reading the others in this series. A fantastic series, with some paranormal elements, mystical characters, passion, acceptance, romance, and love. This is Meg and Simon's story. I love the way Ms. Marlowe brings her characters together though circumstances, challenges, passion, danger and a powerful need for acceptance. Superbly written with many facets. The reader finds some lose ends tied up, some issues resolved as well as a possible look into future stories. My only complaint, sorry, Ms. Marlowe, I absolutely adore your stories, but I NEED an epilogue. Another outstanding story! Enjoyable and most satisfying read! A definite must read, not only for Historical romance fans but for Paranormal fans as well. *Received for an honest review from the publisher via Net Gallery* Rating: 4.5 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

    A marvellous book!

    Miss Meg Anthony comes from a very humble background; she was recruited by the Duke of Camden for MUSE (the Metaphysical Union of Sensory Extraordinaires), gifted people who protect the Crown from psychic threats. And fear not, gentle readers, Mia Marlowe explains everything clearly and concisely. Meg’s safety is threatened by family members, and Camden ships her off to Wales, where an acquaintance of his can keep her safe: Samuel Templeton, Lord Badewyn. Samuel is a scholar and a recluse; ill at ease in society, he is a man of few words. And he is rather overwhelmed by the lively and slightly irreverent Meg, who is like the sun brightening his Gothic doom. Badewyn lives with his father, Grigori, who fancies Meg. To Samuel’s horror, Meg brings about feelings he had pushed away for as long as he can remember, for reasons he won’t share, and he soon notices that Meg is also drawn to him. If you like the cover, get the book, because it’s perfect illustration of the delights that await you. Meg is a wonderful character, she says almost anything that comes to mind, she is spontaneous and sweet; she is such a refreshing presence. Samuel is the epitome of the Gothic hero, albeit atypical. It takes him a long time to open up to Meg, and it’s a wonder when he does. Meg and Samuel are a magical couple; she is the light to his darkness, but he has good reasons for his detachment. The paranormal elements are original, and I could not wait to know what secrets father and son were hiding. But however enthralling the story is, one should pay close attention to Mia Marlowe’s magnificent, refined, luminous prose, her gorgeous dialogues, and the attention paid to the various speech patterns and accents. And the story moves at a remarkably quick pace, and there are plot twists I never would have expected, especially a few that concern Samuel; they were superb touches! The romance is heartbreakingly beautiful, touching, sweet and sensual. There were several stunning plot twists towards the end, as Camden solves one mystery to uncover another, and he and the sinfully adorable Vesta work together, and more… I also loved those philosophical musings of Badewyn before every chapter. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    The Lost Soul of Lord Badewyn

    In the third instalment of the M.U.S.E. series, we have a number of stories come together. The main one is about Meg, the low-born former pickpocket who can Find. Overseeing her uncle and cousin breaking into a neighbours, and realising how close they are to her, the Order (ie. Lord Camden) decide to send her to Wales, in the care of Lord Badewyn, for her own safety. Samuel is intrigued by Meg but is determined to keep his distance, considering the secret his father is hiding, and what will happen to Meg should he succumb. I loved this story - Meg's charms continue to grow, along with her confidence, throughout the series. Finding has its own dangers but if Meg is prepared to take that risk, then she will defy anyone who says she can't, even Samuel. The story between the two of them is both innocent and sensual. Well-written, smoothly paced and full of secrets and intrigue, this was a delight to read. I was pleased to see that Lord Camden found the answers he has been looking for, even if the hearing was hard. Thoroughly enjoyable and I'm definitely hoping for more in the series. * I received this book from Entangled Publishing / NetGalley in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
