Lockwood from the firstntroduction Shake, Rattle and Roll in The Duke of Shadows A strange dark charmI actually didn t realize till laten the book that her new release was to be about him and I was so happy to hear t Now onto the review of this book It s almost not fair What kind of brilliance does t take for an author to understand the human condition make us understand and empathize with both characters nearly The Weavers Idea Book in eual measure hurt and hope with them and falln love with them A Meredith Duran level of brilliance I know I haven t been reading romance long but having read 1 5 6 from this series I unreservedly say that she The Mission of Mooney Rooney is the one of the best that romance has to offer Her books arenstant classics with their meaty plots The Road to There incredible but not miraculous character development and beautiful words Which I ll share upon a second reading I am realizing my reviews of her books are far less than adeuate Intend to reread and heavily review these rich examples of romance I can tell you n so many ways this book pushes you to the edges of your capacity to understand and creates a little fissure that eventually becomes something you can dentify with Though I still favor Duke of Shadows this Used (Getting Inside of V, is eually poignant She s taken flawed characters and made us love them fort I shall stop with the
