Firelight by Kristin Callihan
Once the flames are ignited . . .
Miranda Ellis is a woman tormented. Plagued since birth by a strange and powerful gift, she has spent her entire life struggling to control her exceptional abilities. Yet one innocent but irreversible mistake has left her family's fortune decimated and forced her to wed London's most nefarious nobleman.
They will burn for eternity . . .
Lord Benjamin Archer is no ordinary man. Doomed to hide his disfigured face behind masks, Archer knows it's selfish to take Miranda as his bride. Yet he can't help being drawn to the flame-haired beauty whose touch sparks a passion he hasn't felt in a lifetime. When Archer is accused of a series of gruesome murders, he gives in to the beastly nature he has fought so hard to hide from the world. But the curse that haunts him cannot be denied. Now, to save his soul, Miranda will enter a world of dark magic and darker intrigue. For only she can see the man hiding behind the mask.
I really enjoyed this book, I really liked Miranda. The relationship between Miranda and Archer was fun. It was interesting to see how it developed into love so quickly. The mystery behind Archer was irritatingly fun to try and figure out. I never would have guessed the truth. I'm not going to give too much away, I want you guys to read it and enjoy it as much as I did.
The only real complaint I have is that it took like more then half of the book to really get into the meat of what Archer is and why he's the way he is. After that, I felt like the story really picked up steam. I look forward to reading Ember, the prequel to Firelight, and any subsequent sequels there are. Kristin Callihan has a great talent, and I'm so happy she shared it with the world.
