What a great combination romance and mystery! The Marquess of Darkefell has no idea what he's in for when the spunky Lady Anne shows up on his doorstep one dark rainy eve, covered with blood and demanding answers. Summoned by her friend, Lady Anne refuses to back down to the Marquess, even when he tries using his kisses to distract her. The dialogue is witty and you won't know whether to cheer Anne on or shake your head as she plunges into one thing after another. I found myself chuckling as she got caught snooping on more than one occasion. This book is definitely something worth adding to your library. Even more exciting is that there are two more Lady Anne books coming out continuing the romance and adventure between these two.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Simpson (Awaiting the Moon) launches her Lady Anne historical mystery series with flair, though at times its daring heroine seems more Victorian than Georgian. Lady Anne Addison, a clever, capable bluestocking, arrives at Darkefell Castle after receiving a distress-filled missive from her flighty best friend, Lady Lydia Bestwick, about werewolf sightings. Walking the last few miles to the castle, Anne hears screams and discovers a dead woman along the way. Lydia's concerns extend beyond the paranormal, and soon Anne becomes embroiled in gothic goings-on that clumsily point to the overbearing marquess of Darkefell, Lydia's brother-in-law, who aggressively pursues Anne despite disliking her independent nature. A slave trade subplot works well, and romance fans will love the witty byplay if not the decidedly unromantic conclusion." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Synopsis" by , Historical romance with a twist - a little bit of gothic suspense, a paranormal element that turns out not to be, and a whole lot of fun

Lady Anne Addison is a rational and courageous woman. So when she's summoned by a frightened friend to Yorkshire to prove or disprove the presence in their woods of a menacing wolf - or werewolf - she takes up the challenge.

Grim, dank and shadowed Darkefell Castle is an ancient keep with a scabrous history. And now it appears that a preternatural menace is behind the events terrorizing the country folk.

Lady Anne finds the Marquess of Darkefell to be an infuriatingly unyielding man. Rumors swirl and suspects abound. When she finally solves the mystery, the Marquess is indeed at the middle of it, but not at all in the way that Lady Anne had suspected... and now he's firmly determined to win her in spite of everything.

PRAISE FOR DONNA LEA SIMPSON:

Donna Lea Simpson has re-imagined the classic gothic romance, and any reader who loved Victoria Holt, but always felt cheated by the lack of sexy details, or wished that the manor really were haunted, will adore Awaiting the Moon. Donna Lea Simpson is absolutely brilliant
