Temptation and Twilight by Charlotte Featherstone

Goodreads Description:

Iain Sinclair, Marquis of Alynwick, is certain there is a special hell for him. An unrepentant rake, he holds nothing sacred – except for beautiful Elizabeth York. For years, Alynwick has tried to forget the woman he loved so well, and treated so badly. A woman who could hold nothing in her heart for him except hatred.

All of society believes Elizabeth, blind daughter of a duke, to be a proper young lady. But no one knows of her wanton affair with Alynwick. When Lizzy learns of her ancestor’s ancient diary – filled with exotic tales – she longs to uncover the identity of the unnamed lover within and hesitantly allows Alynwick, who claims to have knowledge of the “veiled lady,” to help her solve the mystery.

Eager to be Lizzy’s eyes, Alynwick brings the seductive text to life, and each night it takes greater effort for her to forget his betrayal. With each whispered word, her resolve gives way, without her knowing that a centuries-old secret will lead them to a present-day danger.

My Rating:

My Review:

I loved this book but not as much as much as the first two. I loved the romance between Iain and Lizzy, which has been building in ways through the series. The mystery of who was trying to take the items from the guardian's was obvious to me most of the book and I thought the ending was very anti-climatic and disappointing. I would tell anyone who read the other books that they have to read this one to have the mystery solved but that it isn't my favorite in the series.
