This book is an engaging read with suspense, romance and the paranormal with some unique elements that makes it very intriguing.
Catherine is a young widow that is shipwrecked on a mysterious island, all she wants is to find a way home, but soon finds out that it is impossible. Gerard is the Master on this mysterious island and the man who saved Catherine and he finds himself falling for her, but can she accept him, secrets and all?
This gothic tale is a very intriguing one with a very interesting concept, a cursed island lost in time and hidden by the gods. The author brings this island to life with great detail and very compelling characters.
The relationship between Catherine and Gerard progress at a steady pace throughout the book and is accurately portrayed for the time period. The author conveys their emotions and personalities with an intensity that adds depth to the story and draws the reader deeper into the book.
Although I did find that the plot was very slow moving, I was too caught up in the story to put it down and I was very glad that I didn’t. The book has a few surprising twists, that I sure wasn’t expecting and a very brave young woman. If you like a good gothic tale with a great romance, I recommend you read this one.
