In the first in Tracy Sumner’s sizzling League of Lords historical series, mysticism in Victorian England is the setting for a captivating love affair . . .
He’s a viscount with a dark past who yearns for the one woman he can’t have. She’s rebellious, spurned by society and determined to change his mind.
Sumner (Tides of Desire) opens her League of Lords series with a sparkling, superpowered twist on Victorian romance. Lady Piper Scott’s grandfather started the League as a community for those with mystical abilities, including his granddaughter, a healer with a gift for reading auras. When he died, he passed on care of the League to psychic Julian Alexander, Viscount Beauchamp, and made Julian promise to protect Piper. Julian has always denied the attraction between himself and Piper, believing that if he acted on his feelings he’d be betraying the old man’s memory. When Piper draws attention by disguising herself as a fortune teller and scandalizing London’s elite with her talents, Julian spirits her back to his country estate, the headquarters of the League. As Julian and Piper spend more time together, their chemistry becomes undeniable, and Julian agrees to Piper’s request for one passionate night. But one night is not enough to extinguish their desire. Sumner expertly captures the supernatural elements and uses her characters' powers to intensify the attraction between them. This fast-paced series opener delights with witty dialogue and steamy sensuality. (Self-published)
