SHACKLED IN THE DUNGEON of a macabre castle with no recollection of her past, a young woman finds herself falling in love with her captor—the estate’s master. Trusting him before she regains her memory and unravels the castle’s wicked truths would be a catastrophe.

Far away at Pemberley, the Darcys happily gather to celebrate the marriage of Kitty Bennet. But a dark cloud sweeps through the festivities: Georgiana has disappeared without a trace. Upon receiving word of his sister’s likely demise, Darcy and his wife, Elizabeth, set off across the English countryside, seeking answers in the unfamiliar and menacing Scottish moors.

How can Darcy keep his sister safe from the most sinister threat she has ever faced when he doesn’t even know if she’s alive? True to Austen’s style and rife with malicious villains, dramatic revelations and heroic gestures, this suspense-packed mystery places Darcy and Elizabeth in the most harrowing situation they have ever faced— finding Georgiana before it’s too late.

 

Review:  I totally loved this book, a Regency with touch of mystery. The characters were wonderfully enhanced by this author and she added real depth to each and every scene.

The book is part of a series, but without a doubt, can be read as a stand alone. The author so uniquely took me away on a magical read and at no point did it feel I was missing information.

The author has a certain edge to her writing that would convert any non reader of Regency period books in a heartbeat. The scenes were beautifully laid out and stunningly written into one of the most gorgeous books I have come across in a long time. It was a unique mystery with all of my favorite Pride and Prejudice characters.

Yes, it is over 400 pages long. but so very worth every word.  I recommend this read to all Regina Jeffers fans and even the ones that aren’t yet ..you’re missing out !
