~ I really enjoyed this pacy, dark-swirled romantic suspense ~
This is a series where each successive book has been even better than the last. I really do recommend reading A Father’s Insistence if you enjoy a good romantic suspense that dips its toes (and feet) into the dark. However, whilst it is a complete story in it’s own right, I do recommend that you read the other two books in the Dark Sovereignty series in order to fully understand the suspense element.
So I picked this up in the evening, intending to only read a chapter or two before going to bed. Yeah, big mistake. For me this was TOTALLY one of those books where you ‘just need to read the next few pages’ before you can put it down. I didn’t even dare look at what time I closed the book, but it wasn’t until I’d reached the very end of the epilogue – oops. I can totally go to work on a few hours sleep.
I found it easy to connect to Theo and Joanna, they felt believable and were both incredibly likeable. The author did a very good job of writing the deception element of the story. Why wouldn’t someone believe their father’s version of events, when there has never been anything to raise your suspicion? I did feel he accepted the drugging incident too easily, but that was only a very minor part of the story. Particularly as it was totally believable that subsequent events would have distracted him from pursuing it further.
Joanna felt broken without feeling weak, her responses to events were believable and well explained. Whilst I struggled to totally believe Theo was utterly in love with her after such a short time together, Stockholm Syndrome and her view of him as a rescuing hero made it easy to believe Joanna’s feelings. What is undeniable is the strong chemistry between the pair, they certainly heat up your kindle.
The epilogue felt different to the rest of the book, I’m not convinced it totally worked for me. However, I loved knowing what had happened to people etc. though I would have been just as happy with a very simple event showing how the ‘Society’ had changed.
This trilogy was my introduction to the author, but it’s definitely not going to be the last book I read by her. Her writing, character development, exciting plots and ability to weave a twisty tale leave me needing more of it.
One of five women who endured horrific trials to win the hand of Nicholas Cavendish, Lady Joanna Nethercutt suffered greatly throughout the ordeal, ultimately losing to Victoria Hamilton. She swiftly finds herself sold by her own father, who’s determined she’ll be of use to him yet. For a year, she’s “trained” in preparation for marriage to Victoria’s brother, with whom she’ll be expected to produce heirs that will one day strengthen and continue the very society responsible for all of Joanna’s torment.
In the space of a breath, Theodore Hamilton is thrust into a secret society he knew nothing about, and married to a woman who seems terrified of his very existence. Suddenly, his carefree yet honorable life is filled with secrets and shadows, allies and enemies, leaving Theodore unsure who to trust…starting with his broken bride. His lure to the delicate beauty is tempered by external influence, lies and manipulation from all sides.
In this breathless conclusion to the Dark Sovereignty series, Theodore must decide where his loyalties lie, and race to destroy the evil men responsible for the immeasurable suffering of everyone he holds dear—including the wife he never wanted, but can’t possibly live without.
Anna hails from the rural countryside near London. She previously worked as an accountant, and while she still does a bit of accountancy on occasion, the majority of her time is now spent writing and looking after her family.
An avid reader herself, Anna turned to writing to combat depression and anxiety after her diagnosis in 2015. She loves travel, hunky heroes with dirty mouths, demure but spunky heroines, and dramatic suspense. You will find all four woven into each of her magical stories.
