Midnight’s Secret (A Cynn Cruors Bloodline Series Prequel)


Herod D’Argyle is a damaged man. He is ruthless and has the blood of many on his hands. It takes a very special woman to get through his shell, and Arabella Strachan is that woman. Arabella is strong and fights for what she believes in. They are complete opposites, yet when they are brought together, their immediate connection is obvious. There love is true, and despite only having it for a short time, it has remained strong for over a century. The love story between Herod and Arabella is one that will bring a tear to the eye. Their happy ever after will take quite some time to become a reality.

This offering from Isobelle Cate is a prequel to her Cynn Cruors Bloodline Series and is an extremely hard-hitting story with a lot of emotion, sexual tension and passion. Arabella and Herod are two characters who are meant to be together, but they have been kept apart. The writing is done in such a way that the emotion practically jumps off the page, grabs onto the reader and refuses to let go. There are some pretty hot and heavy love scenes that will have e-readers being used as fans, but the description is absolutely fantastic, and it is clear that the author loves these two characters and put her heart and soul into writing them. There is so much going on in this book, and despite the heartbreak, those who go on to read the others in the series will absolutely not be disappointed.
