    The plot was lost

    I have in the past been an avid reader of Carole Mortimer's books. Regrettable Wicked Torment was a disappointment to me as it appears to be a suspenseful novel loosely held together by a proliferation of bedroom scenes, which I felt did not support Ms Mortimer's usual excellent brand of story telling, but detracted from the plot. Lady Beatrix is only too aware of the fact that she does not have the attributes that most gentlemen look for in a wife and after a disastrous marriage, she would prefer to keep her single status. When Darius Strong, the Duke of Wolferton arrives uninvited to her house party, Beatrix is on the alert and is very mistrustful of his motives, with good reason. Darius is really put out when he realises that he has been sent to investigate Lady Beatrix's loyalty to the Crown, as she is holds little appeal for him. However, as Darius gets to know Beatrix he realises that she has qualities that he has never before considered. This is a short novel and I feel that it could have been source of a very good plot, however much of the suspenseful nature of the book was lost in erotica and therefore fell short of expectations. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review

    Secrets will out

    I received a copy of this book from ebook discovery. This is my honest, voluntary review of this book. This is a very well written story where you are drawn into the lives of our hero and heroine have both closed off their hearts and do not believe love is for them. Watching them both learn to open up about their pasts and trust the other makes a great read. Darius has just about convinced himself that Bea couldn't possibly be the traitor when a comment she makes sends him reeling... but are they at cross purposes? Bea has lived a quiet life since her husbands death and her staff are extremely protective of her but why?
