This was a good book but didn't turn out to be the nail biter that some of Holt's other stories were for me. Maybe it would have if it was the first, but now I know her style.
This one was about an art restorer coming in her deceased father's place without a head's up to the Ol' Comte. He's dark and dangerous and probably murdered his wife but of course she falls in love with him. There's a cousin who is to be his heir who gets married off to the H's mistress so you get all that spiteful OW goodness with this one. There's also the handsome neighbor and a scissor weilding daughter with their own issues that spices up the pot.
The setting is a huge, creepy old castle, complete with a dungeon and trap door where many an unsuspecting peasant met their doom. If the place isn't haunted, it should be.
For some gossipy non-gothic spoilers...The H in this story is a manwhore (he uses the word "promiscuous" so no denial there), and doesn't promise he'll forever leave his old ways behind him. Pretty interesting concept, especially since he said it (view spoiler)[during the proposal. (hide spoiler)] Pretty scary, huh?
If you like all that dark and creepy stuff mixed in with your romance, then you might like this one. Not her very best but still pretty good.
