"Sebastian was aware of a strange sensation, like a rush of burning liquid that coursed through his veins, tingling his fingertips and dulling all external sound."
Hurrah, another thrilling instalment of the Sebastian St. Cyr franchise all wrapped up and I'm still smiling. I love the trip back in time that these books provide and Sebastian makes for such an attractive heroine. Just when Kat was finally off limits due to his marriage to Hero and her marriage to Russell Yates, circumstances have a way of changing rapidly.
Throw in an enormous blue diamond, continuing intrigue with French spies, unwitting murder witnesses and witchcraft and you have an action packed, exciting tale to draw you in.
The continuing tension with father-in-law, Jarvis, the mystery of Sebastian's look alike non-relative, the sub plots continue and maintain the reader's interest throughout the series, while each instalment provides a delightful morsel of adventure, death and a soupcon of sexual tension - will the rivalry between Hero & Kat heat up? Will Sebastian remain a good boy? Will I have to wait a long time for the next novel? So many questions and I can't wait to have them answered.
5 out of 5 blue diamonds may not be a girl's best friend.
