The first in the paranormal-romance-adventure series, Cin Craven. I know, it’s a busy little series. This story begins in 1815 England with a tragic loss for Dulcinea Craven. A loss compounded by the betrayal of a childhood friend. Under siege in her home, Dulcinea learns of The Righteous, a trio of avengers who can break this siege…if she can contact them through her witchcraft. Each step Dulcinea takes leads her deeper and deeper in toward a decision from which there can be no return.
Maclaine incorporates some of the time period’s mores and ignores others when she has Dulcinea living alone with only servants to chaperon her. Her family appears to be quite modern in that her cousin doesn’t condemn any of her actions nor expect to take over her life.
I’m enjoying this series. Despite the picking and choosing as to which of society’s rules will apply to Dulcinea, Maclaine has created an interesting cast of characters with a purpose for “living” and I want to know what will happen to them next.
