One of a series of four novels and I'm a pushover for a good series. The novel is as one would expect from the genre - romance and hot love scenes - and is competently written, better than many other writers within the genre. It did what I wanted and entertained me over the course of a couple of days.

Helen Fitzwilliam has been mistress to the Duke of Lister for fourteen years, but he doesn't love her. She's not sure he even likes her, he certainly never visits anymore. But the last time she tried to leave him, he took her infant daughter away, returning her only when his point had been made. Now Abigail is nine, and Helen also has little Jamie to worry about. Yet she can't stay with the duke any longer - she wants to be more than a possession.

When Viscountess Vale (To Seduce a Sinner) agreed to help and sent them to Scotland, Helen was too grateful to resist. Their arrival at Castle Greaves, however, is far from expected, and as Helen struggles with the misanthropic master, a sinister servant and the filthiest house she has ever encountered, she can't help thinking she's made a terrible mistake.

Sir Alistair Munroe knows she has. Left mutilated after the terrible events of Spinner's Falls, the celebrated naturalist wants only to be left alone. The last thing he wants is a beautiful housekeeper flitting about, letting her brats get underfoot.

But as the pair spend more and more time together, neither can deny their growing attraction. However with secrets and troubled pasts lying between them, can they ever have hopes for the future? And will the duke ever give Helen up that easily?

Elizabeth Hoyt continues her 'Legends of the Four Soldiers' series (To Taste Temptation, To Seduce a Sinner) with a sumptuous tale of beauty, beasts and troubled pasts.

This was the second Elizabeth Hoyt book I read and she didn't let me down. All the characters are excellent and the story was fast moving. The two main characters were strong but each with their own problems that they had to overcome. It was especially enjoyable to see Alistair come alive after shutting himself away from the world. Would strongly recommend this book to all romantic fiction lovers life myself.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Helen Fitzwilliam has been the mistress of Algernon Downey, the Duke of Lister, for years. During that time, Helen has given birth to a daughter and a son. Lister has not come to Helen's bed for a very long time, yet refuses to let her go. Lister considers Helen and the kids as his property. If Helen even hints at leaving him, Lister takes the children away. Finally it is too much. With the help of Lady Vale, Helen and the children flee to Castle Greaves in Scotland. Helen is to pose as a widow and announce to Sir Alistair Munroe that she is his new housekeeper. Helen had been told the man was a recluse, but no one warned her of his ghastly scars of injured fingers. Unable to do anything but go forward, Helen must somehow convince the disagreeable man (she mentally addresses him as "Sir Beastly" due to his rudeness) to let her take the position of housekeeper. Every inch of the crumbling castle is caked with dust and grime. But this is the perfect place for Helen and the children to hide.

Six years ago Alistair had been charged with discovering and describing the flora and fauna of New England. It was a civilian position with the 28th Regiment of Foot. Due to a traitorous spy, the men walked into an ambush at Spinner's Falls. Alistair is one of only a few survivors. It was there he lost an eye and found the scars. Since no female or child can see him without screaming in horror, Alistair stays in his castle. The last thing he wants is a servant underfoot, much less two children. If only he did not find Helen so desirable or the children such a delight.

***** Elizabeth Hoyt loosely takes the foundation of the classic "Beauty and the Beast" fairy tale and spins a web of pure delight.

Helen Fitzwilliam is on the run with her two children from her lover, the Duke of Lister. Her friend, Viscountess Vale, tells Helen to leave London and head to Scotland to work as a housekeeper for Sir Alistair Munroe. But when Helen arrives at Munroe's dark castle on a stormy night, the lightning betrays Munroe's face, scaring her children. Helen was unaware that Munroe was disfugured, and his mood suits the stormy weather outside. He wasn't happy at Helen turning up with her children, and was annoyed at Vale for doing this behind his back. Munroe wants Helen to leave, so he can return to his solitude, but Helen knows she cannot go back, so she puts her foot down. She begins the next day, although it's soon clear she is struggling with her duties as a housekeeper, since she's only ever been Lister's mistress.

Munroe is a former soldier returned from the war. Since he was tortured, he was scarred and lost an eye and a couple of fingers, he became reclusive and lived in his old, dirty castle. He knew he needed a housekeeper, but found no reason to have one, due to his face. But soon, he's beginning to fall for Helen, and allows her to employ some staff. Even her children were beginning to warm towards him, and Helen witnessed some moments between them that touched her heart, and they develop a relationship.

But Lister had learned of her whereabouts, vowing to drag Helen and his two children back to London with him. Lister had no real regard for her or the children, he just hated the fact she left, since they were 'his property.' Munroe found out, and used his clever mind to find a way to ensure Helen and the children would finally be free of Lister forever.

Overall, the story was really good.
