"Liz Carlyle weaves passion and intrigue with a master's touch."
-- "New York Times" bestselling author Karen Robards
"Carlyle delivers great suspense and...sensual love scenes."
-- "Publishers Weekly" (starred review) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
About the Author
During her frequent travels through England, Liz Carlyle always packs her pearls, her dancing slippers, and her whalebone corset, confident in the belief that eventually she will receive an invitation to a ball or a rout. Alas, none has been forthcoming. While waiting, however, she has managed to learn where all the damp, dark alleys and low public houses can be found.
Liz hopes she has brought just a little of the nineteenth century alive for the reader in her popular novels, which include the trilogy of One Little Sin, Two Little Lies, and Three Little Secrets, as well as The Devil You Know, A Deal With the Devil, and The Devil to Pay. Please visit her at LizCarlyle.com, especially if you're giving a ball. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Story: Helene de Severs, daughter of a very "merry" widow, is sent for by the Earl of Treyhern to care for his daughter. Helene has experience with healing traumatized children, and Arianne needs her help.
When she arrives she is rather shocked when she learns the identity of the earl, and he's as upset as she is because... well, you'll find out when you get the book!
Helping Arianne turns out to be quite a challenge, since it involves dealing with Cam (the earl), his troublesome brother Bentley, the memory of Cam's first wife, ...
Besides feeling the intensity of emotions of the main characters we also get to see inside Arianne's head, we are witness to the brittle relationship between the earl and his brother (we get his story in THE DEVIL YOU KNOW and it's equally compelling!!) and there's a strong element of suspense.
If you're looking for a beautifully written, full, rich, intelligent, emotional, sexy novel, you can NOT go wrong with Liz Carlyle!! There's a reason she's my favorite author!!
Other recommends: anything else she ever wrote, especially A woman of virtue, No true gentleman and Bentley's book
Although I had the story pegged from quite early on I thought the writing concerning Ariane was excellent. Also, having read the book that links all the people in this book later on in 'The Devil You Know' the background was filled in quite nicely.
I love the way that Liz Carlyle connects one book with a later one and I love the passion she evokes each time. I have quite a few now in my bedside cabinet all waiting to be devoured, in order; I know that I will enjoy every single one.
Cam and Helene as the main characters I found weren't as strong, the passion between them seemed too laid back.
Overall it still is a nice read but not one from Liz that will leave you overwhelmed.
