Is the enemy of her enemy a friend...or a beast?

Lord Ashworth is scarred by a night of terror years ago that left his face in ruins and his life in shreds. He hides in Silverstone Manor, using rumors that paint him as a horrible, murdering monster to keep visitors at bay. Yet he can’t shake the feeling that the rumors might be true. He tells himself it’s better this way. If his memories ever resurface, at least he will be the only one hurt by them.

The woman on his doorstep, however, simply refuses to fear him. That’s not only an oddity, it’s a threat to his secret...and his heart.

Vivian Suttley has seen the face of evil more than once in her young life. She’s on the run from the latest, a cruel man determined to force her to marry him. Whatever the whispers about the reclusive Ashworth, surely it’s nothing compared to the bleak, violent future she leaves behind.

Ashworth saved her once before, and he’s her last hope for refuge. Yet she wonders if she’s truly safer at Silverstone—or if she has just made the biggest mistake of her life.

Warning: This book contains a lot of sexual tension and several sexual scenes, have a fan ready!

“This Beauty and Beast story in a Gothic mode is a feast of sensual tension and secrets with a mystery that pulls you to a surprise ending. From the very beginning it is hard to determine which is greater - the secrets the hero and heroine are hiding or the sensual tension that sizzles whenever they are together!”
~ eCataRomance

“If you are a historical romance fan I cannot recommend this book enough. On the Cheeky Reads scale I give it a 4 Heart Review - It really is a fantastic read!”

I found the characters intriguing and well-written....Secrets abound, a mystery is afoot, and romance is in the air: all the makings of a fabulous story that does not disappoint. I can't wait to search for more of Ms. Dicken's work.”

“Dicken's gothic romance has a mysterious villain, a crumbling manor, a scarred hero and a desperate heroine. The mystery is well done, and the hero and heroine engage the reader's sympathies.”
