Lana Williams wraps up her Secrets Trilogy with this third installment, Shattered Secrets. While it can easily stand alone as a suspenseful Victorian romance, for those who have read the previous two books this story spins a fun and satisfying tale of two people who struggle to come to terms with their feelings for each other, while also wrapping up the lose ends of a continuing suspense-filled plot.
Whew! That sounds like a big task but Ms. Williams is more than up to telling this tale and making it a delightfully fun story in the process.
When Lucas returns from Brazil to inherit his murdered brother's position as Earl of Berkmond he finds he's also inherited two young and rambunctious nieces. He also find their temporary governess, Moira, whose heart he broke years before when he left England after a terrible accident left him disfigured and tortured by demons he could not share with her.
Moira loves this man, despite his eye patch, gloomy disposition and mysterious head aches. She remembers the man he was and wants to help him, but she doesn't know if she can trust him. Lucas, meanwhile, is wary of sharing the ominous reason behind his headaches...and his desire to leave all he loves behind and return to Brazil.
But when Lucas' friends-and their wives-arrive, it's clear the mystery and danger that started it all is still lurking in the back alleys of London and, if they don't stop him, they may lose everything.
Want to curl up on a chilly night or a sunny beach with a good book you can't put down? This is the one. Enjoy!
