Genre: historical romance
Back Cover Blurb:
I appreciate how well developed the Mallorens are as a family and as individuals. The differences between their situation and that of their peers really stands out without being dwelled on. Everyone stands out in their own way and on their own merits. At the same time, the main characters in this novel are absolutely priceless. Fort’s battle with his past, both what he’s lived through and what he’s done, colours his view of the world. Elf’s need for adventure endeared her to me. I love how she was willing to step out of the mould for women, while knowing she was doing so. Her utter belief in her family was something we all could do with.
This novel was definitely Something Wicked. Beverley has created an unforgettable, adventurous, at times comical, and definitely romantic addition to the Mallorens series.
