Lord of Fire by Gaelen Foley
Frigging Amazing! Why did it have to end?!
Gaelen Foley has become one of the hottest new writers in romance, enticing her readers with bold love stories that burn with emotional intensity. Now in new novel, she presents her most unforgettable hero yet, the irresistible Lord of Fire.
After years of preparation, he has baited his trap well, luring the depraved members of Society into his devil’s playground so he can earn their trust and uncover their secrets. Yet no one in London suspects that Lord Lucien Knight is England’s most cunning spy, an officer who has sacrificed his soul for his country. Now an unexpected intruder has invaded his fortress of sin, jeopardizing his carefully laid plans–and igniting his deepest desires.
Beautiful, innocent, Alice Montague finds herself at the mercy of scandalous Lord Lucien. But as he begins his slow seduction to corrupt her virtue, Alice glimpses a man tormented by his own choices, a man who promises her nothing except his undeniable passion. . . .
Wow! This is my first Gaelen Goley novel and I'm impressed. I started out with the second novel in the series, but each story is a stand alone, even though they all flow together with connecting characters. I'll go back and read one as soon as I read the third, which is Damien's story. Lucien is my favorite of the two, but the more I read, the more I wanted to know more of Damien. I look forward to this series.
This is a story of loneliness, love and revenge. Each character plays a key point in this story and even the "villain" is written so well, that you enjoy reading their thoughts. (No matter how evil they can be.)
The heroine of the story is Alice Montague. An innocent who is dragged into a life of which she's never even dreamed of. Her first impression of Lucien, the beautiful, scandalous male is not so good. Of course she notices his beauty, but that's not enough o make her trust him with the way he acts. He's a respectable young lady and hasn't ever encountered a male like him. But, as much as he's scandalous, he's mysterious. She notices something in him that intrigues her.
Lucian can't take his eyes off Alice. He's desperate for her for the moment her meets her, but doesn't trust that a woman like her would look at him. She must be hiding something?
Besides the two main characters, Damien is my favorite. At the start of the novel we see him as the "hero" and Lucien as, "the other one". But as the story goes, things change and even out.
This story isn't just about surprising love, it's also filled with action and violence and a interesting storyline. A private war is brewing and both sides won't stop until the other is dead. This is an fantastic addition to this series. I can't wait to read more!
