Heat Rating: 2
Con didn’t know what to think of the woman he’d rescued beyond the fact that she was beautiful, desirable, and extremely hard to resist—particularly when he didn’t especially want to resist. The question was, had she truly lost her memory? Or was she hiding deadly secrets behind that façade of innocence that would get him killed? And could he resist even if she was when he wanted her badly enough he could taste it?
Mary Catherine didn’t believe she could trust the sinfully handsome Con St. Claire, but he was shelter in the dangerous game someone was playing with her life and she couldn’t bring herself to leave … even though she feared she wouldn’t be able to resist temptation when he offered to teach her passion such as she’d never known.
Ashira Datya’s Review
I was unsure of what to expect of Lord of Chaos, and upon reading it, I found myself enraged about the treatment of Mary Catherine by her husband Mr. Brooks.
As they journeyed to the parcel of land they received from Mary Catherine's father, they were spooked by something and attempted to cross a river, too high and fast to ford, and it was disastrous.
Mary Catherine was found by Con St. Clair. She was barely conscious and sick with a fever; he nursed her back to health. Mary Catherine, who was understandably skittish of men, found herself charmed by her rescuer and his young son, John.
Lord of Chaos was extremely well written and full of delightful, and hair raising, twists and turns, leaving me on pins and needles about what would happen next and wondering when Con would finally break through Mary Catherine's defenses. I give Lord of Chaos four and a half Tea Cups. It was the perfect length, not too long, but not too short either. The heat rating for Lord of Chaos is a two; it isn't terribly graphic as far as some other romance/erotic novels out there, but it isn't non descriptive either. I would love another novel by the author of Lord of Chaos in a nanosecond.
4 1/2 Tea Cups!
